The Seiko Prospex Alpinist SPB155J1 is part of an iconic line that has prominently featured in Seiko's line up for over 60 years. This specific model has been kindly nicknamed the 'Baby Alpinist' when it was introduced in 2020. It has proven to take a unique spot in Seiko's tremendous line-up, as it's truly a watch aimed at adventurers and blends several styles together. When it comes to watches, most manufacturers, especially the big ones, tend to think in styles, such as dress, sports, aviation, diving etc. and Seiko left that all behind when they came up with this model. Now, if you are a capable cook you may know that when you blend 2 very tasty ingredients it's no guarantee for success. In fact, it tends to be either really bad or really good. The Alpinist marks one of those times where several tasty ingredients become even tastier, by not thinking of styles and groups, but rather creating and experimenting with an open mind.
So what does the SPB155J1 do and doesn't do? When you look at the normal Alpinist there are some very outspoken features, such as an internal bezel and date loupe, but this model lacks those distinctive features. What it does do? An elegantly shaped 38mm case with a modest 46mm lug to lug distance, meaning it will fit most wrists perfectly. Of course the basics are also there, such as 200m water resistance, a sapphire crystal with an AR coating, a high level of finishing and just overall solid materials. Under the hood: the in-house Seiko Cal. 6R35 movement. This sturdy workhorse features an impressive 70 hour power reserve.
So bringing it together is a watch that still combines some of the Alpinist design queues we've all grown to love over the years, but makes it slightly more mainstream. But that also makes it one of the most comfortable every-day watches out there. The 38mm diameter makes it very comfortable and simply timeless. Whenever you touch a classic design that has a huge following it's always very risky, but Seiko did an amazing job with the SPB155J1.
The nickname 'baby alpinist' is misleading all things considered, it merely trimmed the beard of the normal alpinist a little bit.

We're an authorised dealer of all of our brands, unless otherwise noted. In this day and age there are also many 'grey market dealers' that compromise. What are the main benefits of buying from an authorised dealer with regard to the warranty?
2 year warranty
We offer a 2 year warranty on all watches. This covers all mechanical malfunction arising from parts failure and/or assembly errors. Excluded are parts that by their nature may not last 2 years, like batteries and leather straps, damage/problems caused by improper use and wear and tear. We stand behind the brands that we sell and the quality that they offer.
Some of our brands also offer an international warranty, which will also apply.
Service and parts
In the unfortunate event of a problem with your watch, you simply need to send it to us (or take it to another dealer if the brand offers an international warranty). We have access to the official service centers, where only original parts are used and the watchmakers are qualified and experienced with your type of watch. Not every watch movement is the same, so it's best if it's handled by people who know what they are doing.
After your 2 years warranty has expired we are able to offer service in most cases.
