The New Seiko Alpinist Limited Edition
Seiko presents a new version of the iconic “Alpinist” watch, an unprecedented Limited Edition of 2020 pieces available exclusively in Europe, which is inspired by the high mountain landscape.
The new timepiece of the Prospex line features a steel case measuring 39.5 mm in diameter with a design with soft lines that highlights the solidity of the watch. The screw-down crown positioned at 3 o’clock regulates the functions of the hours and the date, while the second crown at 4 o’clock has the purpose of setting the compass, whose indications are placed on the flange.
The watch is powered by the 6R35 caliber which guarantees a power reserve of 70 hours. The dial displays the hours, minutes (with Lumibrite-coated hands) and seconds functions, as well as the date at 3 o’clock. The crystal is sapphire with anti-reflective treatment on the inner surface, which incorporates a magnifying glass on the date to ensure maximum readability. The distinctive emerald green hue of the dial is inspired by alpine glaciers and subtly evokes the way the mountains change color with the seasons. The green leather strap, combined with the dial, completes the watch.
The 2,020 limited edition Seiko Prospex Alpinist SPB199J1 is sold in a special package with a second interchangeable beige nylon strap. The timepiece is available at the Shankstar. The features of this sports watch make it ideal for outdoor activities, while its elegant and traditional aesthetics make it a stylish accessory, also perfect for everyday use.
