the five stages of a watch flipper
infatuation → appropriation → acquisition → justification → resale
Are there any upcoming or available all-steel (case + bracelet) hi-beat Seikos (GS, Prospex, etc) with sapphire glass?
https://www.seiyajapan.com/blogs/new...ck-in-jan-2020, doesn't verify the image you refer to "There arenít any available photos". It does provide notification of future Alpinist releases. Also notice it is a blog post.
From that page:
" It has been newly fitted with 6R35 movement. The power reserve has been upgraded to 70hr. *(The 6R15 movement had a 50hr power reserve.)
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 arenít any available photos, and details are subject to change.
But I still canít wait for it to come out.
Green dial + Brown leather strap -- 75000 Yen
White dial + Black leather strap -- 75000 Yen
Black dial + SS bracelet -- 77000 Yen"
