I had the opportunity to handle the new Seiko Alpinist (SARB063) recently. This watch uses the same case as the SKX007, 009, 011 and other color variants, collectively known as the SKX divers. The Alpinist is powered by the 6R15 movement whereas the SKX divers are powered by the 7S26 movement. Below are some quick photos showing the features of the watch.
Signed crown and curved hardlex crystal. Bezel rotates in both directions.
Caseback with Alpinist logo. This model is limited to 500 pieces.
Solid end links that takes standard spring bars (Not the thick ones found on the SKX divers).
Standard Seiko solid link bracelet that comes with folding clasp with push button release and safety catch.
In addition to the bracelet, the watch comes with a nylon bund strap.
Here’s the packaging of the watch.
