Rare New Old Stock (NOS) Alba Manta Ray White-Wave 200m and White 100m Automatic Divers Watch

History on this Model: Alba is a Seiko Company. To boost its sub-brand's sale, Seiko had Alba make 200m ISO-certified divers watches in 2004. This follows the 200m Aqua Gear line of Alba in the 80s. Alba came up with the Manta Ray line headed by its blue model with mantas swimming in its dial design. Also had black-wave, white-wave, blue-wave, orange, black manta limited edition and yellow ji dai limited edition models. The Manta Ray line also had 100m versions in dark-green, white, blue and black models. The Manta Ray lines were so good in value and size that they were discontinued in 2006 so as not to affect mother company Seiko's divers and Seiko 5 sales. The Mantas are highly-sought after until now and NOS models are very hard to find. Produced only from 2004-2006.

For reference, here's the excellent WUS Guide in Buying Alba Manta Rays.
