The screw down caseback features an engraving of an ama diver inspired by the iconic photography of Iwase Yoshiyuki, celebrating the ama as one of the oldest freediving traditions in the world. With modernisation, this rich tradition is sadly disappearing. Inspired by their rich culture of the sea, Albany Watches has chosen to celebrate their spirit with the ama Diver.
What lies beneath
In keeping with our Japanese inspired theme, powering the ama is the Miyota 9039, the dateless version of the beloved 9015. This automatic movement is highly regarded for a smooth second-hand sweep, consistent quality and accurate timekeeping. It is a workhorse calibre that will serve you efficiently on your own journeys of discovery for many years.
