Seiko 6R35 Alpinist – SPB119J1

This time round I checked out the 6R35 Seiko Prospex Alpinist, SPB119J1. I used to own two pieces of the 6R15 version in the past when they were still JDM models. They were very popular due to the similarity with the 4S15 version that was released in the 90’s.

There are three versions of Alpinist that has this particular case design – the 4S15 version from the 90’s with a smaller case size, the 6R15 version from a few years back and the current 6R35 version. I find that the Alpinist identity actually gets weaker with each subsequent 6R version.

4S15 version – “Alpinist” word printed on dial and solid caseback bears the Alpinist logo.
6R15 version – Solid caseback with the Alpinist logo. (No “Alpinist” word on dial)
6R35 version – “Alpinist” word nowhere to be found on the watch. Solid caseback replaced with see-through caseback.

Below are some pictures.
