An icon in high-alpine timekeeping

The all-new SJE085 is the long-awaited tribute to Seiko's very first sports watch: the handsome Laurel Alpinist, which was purpose-built in 1959 for Japan's most elite mountaineers. This new limited edition reference retains the signature oversized luminous triangle markers and svelte profile of its classically mid-century predecessor, albeit with a fully modern Seiko calibre and an upgraded box sapphire crystal. It is limited to 1959 pieces.
