Seiko launches Rock Face European limited edition Prospex Alpinist

Seiko Prospex Alpinist watch

Seiko Watches has added the Rock Face European limited edition Alpinist to its high performance Prospex watch collection. 

The timepiece takes inspiration from the original Seiko Alpinist, introduced in 1959 to meet the needs of the Japanese mountain men, the Yama-Otoko, and exudes mountaineering cool. If you want a timepiece that looks indefatigably reliable, this is it.

Only 3,000 models of this Prospex regional exclusive are being produced. 

It’s powered by a Seiko in-house Automatic 6R movement, and has a 70 hour power reserve. It features a 39.45mm diameter stainless steel case, and comes with a grey nylon strap, and secondary blue leather alternative.

The subtle grey textured dial is intended to look different as the angle of vision of the wearer changes. Blue hands and indices convey the alpine theme while high brightness lumibrite on the dial and hands ensure it’s easy to read in any lighting conditions.
