    It will keep the 20 ATM water resistance but will come with a see-through back.
    The green dial will remain pretty much the same. It was announced that a black and white contrasting dial will be offered as well.
    There aren’t any available photos, and details are subject to change.
    But I still can’t wait for it to come out.

    SBDC091
    Green dial + Brown leather strap -- 75000 Yen

    SBDC089
    White dial + Black leather strap -- 75000 Yen

    SBDC087
    Black dial + SS bracelet -- 77000 Yen
    Same case size I wonder?

    That is a substantial price increase as the SARB017 was readily available for under 40,000 yen last year.
    Do feel a bit pissed at Seiko for briefing about it being discontinued if there intention was purely to pump demand, but it was a pretty effective marketing strategy.
    And the Scalpinist was just the icing on the cake, no way they were gonna discontinue it after the success of that.

    modern seiko is a joke

    even the old alpinists with the legendary 4s15's were cheaper than that

    That roundup of all the Zimbe models got me kind of exited, I didn't particularly like any of them (not a fan in general of the samurai, shogun, sumo etc) but I don't know, I still have hope for SEIKO. Even though the SKX is unsurpassed in terms of form and functionality. The ADSM was nice but it is 800 times more money than I'd like to spend.
    Maybe a Zimbe Tuna? An SBBN-tuna that is.

    Rerelease the ashtray SEIKO!!!!!!

    Those are probably Manufacturer's List prices. Except for some LE's, most folks don't buy at that level. The SPB089 blue Alpinist listed at $600.00 with a 6R15.
    If the new ones are regular production, they will eventually be available with discounts.

    I was always keen on the Alpinist minus the dial color. I was disappointed I missed out on the Scalpinist, so I'm looking forward to seeing what the black dial looks like!
