For sale is a pair of 8F56 Alpinists, the SBCJ019 (black dial) and SBCJ021 (cream lume dial). These long discontinued JDM Seiko gems are powered by the 8F56 high end quartz movement (spec'ed to within 20 sec/yr), featuring a true independent GMT hand, perpetual calendar, and a 10-year battery change interval. The SBCJ Alpinists are highly sought after and it's not difficult to see why: classic design, modest size, titanium construction, sapphire crystal, and venerable movement. Specs are as follows:

  • Case width: 38.5mm (w/o crown)
  • Lug to lug length: 44mm
  • Lug spacing: 19mm
  • Thickness: 10.9mm
  • Crystal: sapphire
  • Movement: Seiko 8F56 HAQ w/ GMT & perpetual calendar
  • WR rating: 100 meters


Both watches are in great condition. The watch cases exhibit some signs of wear consistent with age on a titanium case. The crystals are clear without any marks. On both watches, the 4 o'clock crown screws down smoothly and securely, and the 2 o'clock crown rotates the inner bezel as it should. Both movements are running well, and the perpetual calendar is properly set.

Price for each is $650 on leather strap, or $700 on the original bracelet. (prices net to me please) I will pay for shipping within the USA.
