now i'm stumped - i normally will choose a leather watch over a bracelet BUT the bracelet on this piece is AWESOME

actually they are both REALLY nice looking

especially the white dial

also a tough choice between the GMT & Chrono versions

That was a interesting read. I like the watch, especially the accuracy of one second a day. It also looks awesome, too. Thanks for postingthe link James. ....Bob

I found this forum after seeing one of the comments from the blog entry posted by the OP.

I just got an Ananta Spring Drive GMT last week. It's my first Spring Drive and it haslived up to all of my expectations and more. The movement features the glide motion second hand but I'm also very impressed with its operation and feel. When setting the time, there doesn't seem to be any slack in the gear train. The hand-winding offers a nice fine-clicking feedback. The power reserve builds quickly on the wrist (as observed from the power reserve meter). I think the accuracy is supposed to be about the same as a typical quartz movement and so farfrom my observations it's gainedmaybe 0.5-1 second in the 4 full days I've had it. The watch case is superbly finished and compares favorably to European offerings that I've owned. It's definitely very expensive (about twice as much as I've ever spent on a watch previously), but worth the money in that I am totally satisfied with the purchase.

I've posted some pictures on a couple of other forums I frequent. Some of you guys probably have already seen these pics, but for the interest of those who have not, here they are:







Notice the reflection of my camera from the polished surface.











Sharp edges abound on the dial and hands.
