The Seiko Alpinist is becoming extremely rare following Seiko's announcement to discontinue the model. The BWS has two new pieces on the standard leather strap NOW BACK IN STOCK NOVEMBER 2018
Seiko has announced it is stopping production of the SARB017 Alpinist and because of this prices have recently increased dramatically. Unfortunately, the limited availability and increased demand for the piece has pushed up our prices but we believe the watch is still a great purchase.
The Seiko SARB017 is waterproof to 200 meters and has a compass function making it a superb watch for the outdoor enthusiast. This watch is quickly becoming a cult piece and is Japanese made, NOT made in Malaysia or Korea.
A striking feature of this watch is the its sunburst green dial that is just amazing.
The movement is Seiko’s extremely popular and highly regarded 6R15 23J automatic with hand winding and hacking function. Power reserve is 50 hours. The luminous feature is great as one would expect from Seiko.
Supplied with a brown calf leather strap, the SARB 017 has 20mm lugs and sits at 38mm diameter. This watch is also available with the superb Strapcode Oyster bracelet.
The watch is new and comes with instruction booklet, original box and warranty. The strap has been upgraded as the supplied strap quality is only average. Both the original and new strap are supplied with the watch.
Usually only available in Japan. We are pleased to be able to offer them now as legal UK imports with all taxes and VAT paid.
