Very nice watch and a great buy at that price. New Arrivals  - Page 4 3377044411

I couldn't find much about Ancre watches but found references linking them to this company

http://www.masterhorologer.com/2010/02/prim-watches-only-manufacture-made.html

The Ancre & Meister Anker were apparently brand names used by this Czechoslovak manufacturer for watches to be sold to the Western market.

Whether watches with Ancre on the dial all came from this company  isn't clear. It is possible that the name could have been used as a generic brand by a number of companies like so many other vintage watches.

Hopefully when you can get access to the movement it may help with the research. Very Happy

That's a beautiful watch. I love the bold hour markers, hands and bezel which 
are all in perfect proportion. Definitely one to wear and enjoy. Very Happy

Okay I just jumped in for this watch as I liked it, but going to show how little I know, is there a nickname for this type watch ?

Thanks

Strike that I just searched Bruce’s old posts and he called it a tuna

yes its not a Monster, this is one of the last what i would call proper "Prospex" watches from Seiko, now they seem to stamp it on everything in essence lowering the value of eveything IMO
its a big step up from the SKX series and on a par with a Sumo

I like the look of that , you can not go wrong with a blue dial and insert I especially like the handset .

I edited your photo for you I hope you do not mind as it was showing upside down .

Lovely watch and looks quite substantial on your wrist. Possibly 
after wearing it a while you will feel happier with its size. Very Happy

Two nice watches, both surpass my new arrival, a cheapie Quartz for a bout a fiver on eBay. I'll take it out of the bag when I clean it up, might get a new glass and strap for it too.
