Seiko Green Dial Automatic Alpinist Field Watch with 38mm Case, and Sapphire Crystal #SARB017

The Seiko SARB017 field watch is powered by the premium Seiko 6R15 caliber self-winding movement that can also be hand wound and hacked. It is the same caliber that powers many of the Seiko Prospex line of watches. The movement has a generous 50 hour power reserve. The case has a fine brushed finish and the green dial sports highly luminous goldtone hands and hour markers. A date display is shown at the 3 o'clock position. A scratch resistant sapphire crystal is used to protect the dial. The watch is water resistant to 200 meters. Note: The crown at 4:00 turns the inner (compass marked) bezel. Case is a mix of brushed and polished stainless steel.

ADD a newly introduced Strapcode bracelet to your Alpinist watch!

5 of 5 Nice, real nice. September 25, 2019
Reviewer: MICHAEL PARIS from Toms River, NJ United States  
Been reading on and off about the Alpinist. wanting something smaller and different from my divers and flight watches.  39mm, sapphire crystal  and good reputation, I do also know it's a love it or indifference.  Except for the band love it, seems to keep good time, had a similar grand 20mm NATO and saving for a Strapcode.  I don't know why ,just love wearing it.  Also it has a sapphire crystal.  My other options were a Hamilton Cooper or similar.  I find myself more drawn to the Alpinist.  Since these are a JDM product, trust and buying through Marc helps. If a person wants a well made "different" watch, it is a viable option..

5 of 5 Nice watch but better customer service! July 25, 2019
Reviewer: Matt B from St. Catherine, Jamaica W.I.  
If you are outside the US, read this review!

Watch - 4/5.

The dial and hands are more beautiful in person than in the pictures, and if you bought this watch, you bought it for that dial. If this fits any aesthetic of yours, you won't regret it.

The leather band is absolute rubbish, be prepared to change it.

The first watch I received was defective and could not be hand wound.

Customer service 5/5

First watch arrived without hand winding working. Marc (the owner of this site) had a replacement in the post within a few days. No questions asked, and no hassle.

If you're outside the US, import costs, and the time and cost to return, are things you have to be prepared to bear on occasion. Even good vendors will have the odd defective product. Thankfully, you can trust Marc to honour his warranty and return policy without hassle, and that is peace of mind you won't get from many.

I will definitely shop again.

Overall review 5/5 based on customer service.
