Based on the serial, this one dates to November 2002.
The Alpinist series is one of Seiko's best know sub-brands and the modern series was revived in 1995.
The SBJC021 features a 8F56 high accuracy pertpetual calendar quartz movement accurate to 20 seconds per year. For setting instructions you can check the Youtube video on how to reset it, but any watchmaker can properly change the battery when it shows it is running low by skipping seconds to avoid the reset as the perptual calender needs no setting other than daylight savings.
The movement also includes 24h GMT function with indepenent hour hand.
It is water resistant to 100m.
This watch is in very good shape, I had my watchmaker place a brand new Seiko BR2412 battery so it's good for another 10 years.
Titanium case and caseback are free of any major dents and has only very light scratches.
The sapphire crystal is in excellent shape and free of chips/scratches (a little bit of debris on the inside of the crystal due to age - can be easily cleaned up).
Cream dial with gold markers are in excellent shape.
For the SBJC021 the lume is uniquely on the entire dial face.
The screw down crown at 4'oclock is working well and the rotating compass bezel is featured at 2 o'clock.
Date change occurs properly in mid-crown position by changing the hour hand that moves a cool ultrasonic motor that drives the date wheel.
I had to sell off the original titanium bracelet to a forum member who desparately needed one, so I've included a lightly used 19mm cherry brown leather strap; it's long in length so easily fits my 7.5 wrist and can expand probably up to 9 inches.
Box/papers/tags are not included.
The 8F56 Alpinist series is one of the rarest Alpinists out there (outside of the SSASS version and Laurel Alpinist), and given the lack of a bracelet (it would cost you a lot more if you asked me to donate one from my other set) the item is priced firm an fairly.
Given that this is a pre-owned watch, service history is unknown, accuracy/water resistance cannot be guaranteed, and warranty unavailable.Shipping: Priority ConUS shipping is free and preferred.
However I will consider International Offers on a case-by-case basis.
Questions welcome, additional pics available upon request.
Thanks for viewing!
