We’ve teamed-up with Seiko to bring you the Seiko Prospex Alpinist SPB201J1 “Mountain Sunset” ahead of its general release. Attractively priced at just €790.00 including VAT, we have secured 35 of these limited-edition watches for pre-order with FREE shipping starting in the first week of February, 2021.
This time around, we’re treated to a new flat shade of grey, brilliantly accented by flashes of red, white, and silver. The inspiration for this dial colorway? A mountain sunset. The result? A beautiful, mid-tone edition that complements the existing black- and white-dialed models expertly.
The Seiko Prospex Alpinist SPB201J1 comes with a vintage brown leather band on a Seiko deployant clasp. Once again, we will also include one of our very own handmade, Italian suede Fratello straps. This beige (as seen above) was chosen to harmonize with the cool grey tones of the dial. Each watch will also come with a limited edition box and a really cool Alpinist pin, as seen in the teaser images we posted on our social media.
As mentioned in our previous Seiko Alpinist release article from October, these watches represent the culmination of years and years of experience. Sure, the Alpinist collection we have today was born in 1995, but the ethos behind the line stretches way back to the fifties (1959, to be exact).
What we have here is the very latest in Alpinist technology. It doesn’t so much honor the model’s past as it does set the stage for its exciting future. This watch is driven by Caliber 6R35, which is visible through a sapphire display back. Despite the glass back, the watch is still water-resistant to a handy 200m. That should be enough to satisfy even the soggiest camper.
The Seiko SPB201J1 stainless steel case is 39.5mm across, 13.2mm thick, and boasts a palatable 46.4mm lug-to-lug. The first 35 pieces are available here from the Fratello Shop.
