The Return of the Seiko Alpinist (in Green) Appears Imminent

I will try to get one of these in for review as soon as possible. Bad: Thinner is better, open casebacks for undecorated Seiko movements are not necessary, the cyclops is ok but not a deal breaker and the sterile crowns look cheap. Shortly after its release, the Alpinist stood firmly on its own. Seiko has paired each of these four new models with a unique strap choice. When Berndt switches to verse all I can do is curse or worse.

See my review below, or continue for specs photos of the new models! It was gone as quickly as it arrived. It was often recommended for folks who needed a watch that could be dressed up or down. In 2006, Seiko launched a trio of models that resurrected the Alpinist name from a line of watches engineered for Japanese mountain climbers from 1961 to 1964, the Laurel Alpinist. Lots of strong reaction to these, though. It will come on a black leather strap.

For some additional variation, the black dial model pictured above cuts out the Arabic numerals we see in the other models and maintains a full set of attractive, triangular indices. We work for our audience and our coverage is as honest as it is passionate. The Alpinist series has some of the deepest history of any Seiko models, holding the distinction of being the very first Seiko sports watch when it debuted in 1959. This has always been a watch that has a great list of specifications, stainless case with a screw down crown, sapphire, lumi-bright luminous, a classic cathedral handset, date at 3:00, and 200M water resistance. Of the new colorways, this is my favorite, the dial appears to be matte black. The power reserve has been upgraded to 70hr. It featured a green dial with gold markers and gold cathedral hands.

The green looks the best to me. The only hint of color on this variant include small bits of red in the compass ring. That has made it immensely popular since the 2006 launch of the first three Alpinist models. Seiko makes watches for the masses. It had managed to carve out a strong reputation even in the shadow of the beloved range of mid-2000s Seiko divers like the Sumo, Monster, and 007.

Seiko Prospex 'Alpinist

The three other new additions, however, inject a few new ideas into the dial designs. The number of names on the list rivals that of a midsize American town. See all the new release 2020 models from the Seiko Global Brands including Astron, Presage, Prospex, Seiko 5 among the rest. Another major factor in its collectability in recent years has been its rarity. The original Alpinist was in production until approximately 1965. What this means is a whopping 70-hour power reserve.

Seiko Alpinist New Colors for 2020

It will be interesting to see how these are received, the colors are beautiful, but it now features a dial and cyclops that many Seiko enthusiasts might take exception to. Seiko has taken all the aspects of the old Alpinist that made it great and upped them ever so slightly. For some reason Seiko got the bracelet right, as much as they got the supplied hard plastic strap wrong. Each of the new Alpinist inspired models shares the same compact, sporty 39. The old Alpinist used the 6R15 automatic movement, the new one uses the 6R35. The 6R35 features a 24 jewel, anti-magnetic movement with a 70-hour power reserve.

One interesting new addition, Seiko added a cyclops date magnifier to the crystal. Right now seikoalpinist has roughly 18,600 posts on Instagram. Great news, The Alpinist is back with new colors and a new caliber movement! There were a lot less people in the hobby back then--but the Alpinist came up in almost every thread about affordable watches. Some odd reason I love the watch, and usually go for like 40mm and up.
