This is the story of a watch designed for and by the mountains, and above all, in its name. Responding to the needs of mountaineers and outdoor sports enthusiasts, the first Alpinist was launched by Seiko in 1959, seducing many enthusiasts far beyond Japan's borders. In doing so, it paved the way for a line of iconic timepieces designed to meet the craziest challenges: the Prospex range. It is to this heritage that the new Prospex Alpinist GMT pays homage to SPB379J1, to the soul of the first Alpinist of 1959, while bringing high-quality features worthy of the Prospex collection, combining precision, durability and performance. Each watch in the Prospex Alpinist series is designed to be a reliable partner for mountain getaways. Its rugged and functional design is suitable for all conditions, with clear and luminous dials ensuring optimal readability, even in the dark. Luminescent hands and indexes are major assets for use in the mountains.
A jewel of watchmaking technology
Equipped with the 6R54 automatic movement, this GMT SPB379J1 model offers exceptional precision and unfailing reliability. The GMT function allows you to track two time zones simultaneously, a valuable advantage for adventurers traveling around the world. The scratch-resistant stainless steel case is topped with a domed anti-reflective sapphire crystal, ensuring maximum protection while preserving the legibility of the dial. The black dial is not only aesthetically appealing, but it also features a bidirectional internal bezel featuring the cardinal points, making it easy to orient yourself in the mountains. A compass function that, with the help of the GMT hand and the rotating internal bezel, allows you to find your way around at a glance. It should be noted that the Prospex Alpinist GMT SPB379J1, available in black and blue (SPB377J1), is resistant to shocks and bad weather, thanks to its solid case and high-quality black leather straps. With a water resistance of 20 bar, it is prepared to face the most demanding environments and is ready for any adventure.
