Seiko Alpinist SARB017


The much loved Seiko Alpinist SARB017.

Until it was discontinued in early 2018, the ‘Alpinist’ was one of Seiko’s enduring and best loved cult watches. Why? It’s amazing value for money! The green dial, the compass function, the rock solid reliability of one of Seiko’s best automatic movements, the way it sits on the wrist…

The Seiko SARB017 field watch is powered by the premium Seiko 6R15 calibre self-winding movement. The 23-jewelled 6R15, first introduced in 2006, is essentially a higher-spec 7S26 (the movement inside Seiko 5’s). Seiko have added to the 6R15 inside the SARB017 Alpinist hacking, hand winding, and that larger 50 hour power reserve.

The 6R15 beats at 21,600bph, and is nearly silent…

The case has a fine brushed and polished stainless steel finish and the green dial sports highly luminous gold tone hands and hour markers. A date display is shown at the 3 o’clock position. A scratch resistant sapphire crystal is used and the watch is water resistant to 200 meters. The lume is excellent and it is applied to all hands. The crown at 4:00 turns the inner (compass marked) bezel. On the Alpinist, the case back is solid and engraved with its unique logo and model information.
