This watch takes its design cues from the original ‘Alpinist,’ first launched in 1959 exclusively in the Japanese market for Japanese ‘Yama-otoko’ mountain men, to be reliable in treacherous terrain.


Benefiting from over 110 years of Seiko’s watchmaking expertise, this watch is powered effortlessly by the caliber 6R35 and is a higher grade inhouse manufacture automatic movement. Mechanically beating at a frequency of 21,600vph, it will provide superior automatic timekeeping accuracy of -15/+25 seconds per day with a 70-hour power reserve. Convenient ‘hacking’ seconds function for re-setting accurate seconds time, this movement is also hand windable and with quick date correction. Peace of mind from magnetic resistance of 4,800 A/m (60 gauss) and with Seiko’s ‘Diashock’ shock protection system.

The Grey ‘sunray’ dial provides an attractive iridescent metallic character as the watch catches the light and showcases a high level of detail A date of month window is positioned at the 9 o’clock hour marker. Both the hands and the hour indexes are coated in ‘heritage’ colour ‘Lumibrite’ and add an aged & historical nature to the timepiece and to facilitate reading the dial in conditions of reduced light.

For those people leading an active lifestyle or just seeking a timepiece that is highly hard wearing you will be pleased to hear this watch is fitted with an ultra-scratch resistant curved sapphire glass with an anti-reflective coating on the inner surface that imparts superior dial clarity for the user. The watch is also sealed to 200m water resistance and as such is perfect for general water sports use.

The case has a glass ‘exhibition’ style caseback that proudly reveals the movement within and is secured to a solid stainless steel bracelet with a 3 link construction, a hairline brushed finish adds practicality and the watch has a reassuring ‘heft’ expected of its quality manufacture, whilst also being still highly comfortable on the wrist. Secured with a high quality push button tri-fold clasp.

Built to last and backed by Seiko’s trusted global service centre network with a 2 year guarantee, this watch will provide a lifetime of reliable service and pleasure for the owner.
