It was sad news to many of us who collect affordable but excellent timepieces that the beloved explorer-style green-dial Seiko Alpinist was discontinued last year, making them climb up in value on the second hand market.
A sporty and discreetly sized model for everyday wear and also moderately priced, the Seiko Alpinist returns in a blue dial US exclusive. A reimagining of the classic Alpinist of the 1950s, this new Seiko release maintains the compass bezel, 200 meters of water resistance, the automatic movement with a 50-hour power reserve, and the same attractive 39.5mm case. The Seiko Alpinist Limited Edition comes on a dark blue leather strap complements the blue dial. If you’ve always wanted an Alpinist, this is the time, as this watch is limited to 1959 pieces.
