downtownfish I do like the titanium color hands and indices on the cream colored one. Other then that it seems they cheaped out again. No nice engraved case back with the peaks. Even the hodinkee one had it although they laser etched it and not stamped or engraved like the previous models.

Are you sure you're not mixing up the 6R35 with the 6L35? I haven't heard that the 6R35 is thinner, but the 6L35 is - the 6L35 is a new version of the 4L25, which has the same exterior dimensions as the ETA 2892. The 6L35 has only been used in the SJE073/SARA015, SJE075/SARA017, and SJE077/SARA019 until present. The 6L35 is 3.69 mm thick, whereas the 6R15 is 5 mm thick.

Where is the signature?

Attachment 428643 My 3 have the "Alpinist" name some where on the watch. Does the new one have it on the case back?

And the Seiko magnifier at 1.5X is not all that useful, but a Rolex @ 2.5X magnification you can read the date across the room. Maybe the design team wanted to tap into that.
Be it on a Rolex or any other watch I find the wart hideous, and an (excuse the pun) eyesore.

Kulprit I don’t much care for the gynecological reference on the black-dial but otherwise I like these. The magnifier would have to go, though.

huangcjz At least the cyclops is a separate addition on top of a flat crystal which is easily removable using heat or a solvent such as acetone on previous Seikos with it such as the Mini Turtle and Zombie LEs. The Alpinist is actually originally targeted at older gentlemen who go hiking in Japan, though it seems to have found favour outside that audience internationally.

Price will probably be almost twice was it was

mitadoc Too steep price for a minor update, but everyone is learning fast from Rolex and Co. The X on thebdial is deal breaker for me, the exhibition case back as well.

Catalogue images of the next-generation 6R35 Alpinists, available in January 2020

Seiya has sourced catalogue images of the next-generation 6R35 Alpinists, which will be available in January 2020: https://www.seiyajapan.com/blogs/new...ck-in-jan-2020

70-hour power reserve 6R35 movement, the black-dial one's hour markers and hand-set looks more like the 1995 4S SCVF Alpinist version than the 6R15 black-dial SARB015, and still with 20 bar water resistance, even though it will now come with a display case-back. They are said to be 39.5 mm in diameter, slightly larger than the 6R15 models' 38 mm. The black-dialled one comes on a bracelet, as previous generations of Alpinist also did.
