Sold 馃憤

For sale is a very rare Seiko 4S15-6000 Red Alpinist with a black dial.

A brief description of the movement from an article at GMT +9
"A 4S15 movement is completely different than the entry level Seiko 7S26. At 28,800 BPH, it鈥檚 a high beat design. It鈥檚 been speculated that the 4S15 is a refinement of the chronometer grade 5246 movement introduced in the early 1970鈥檚. Visually, the movements are very similar and look identical.

Conjecture states that the 4S15 is comparable to ETA鈥檚 2892 and 2824 variations. I think the only people who could properly address/confirm this would be a watchmaker familiar with these movements. That said, the 52XX movements on which the 4S15 is based, have a very high pedigree and I think it鈥檚 safe to assume that these are in fact high grade movements. Seiko鈥檚 confidence in the 4S design is evident in the use of 4S based movements in some of their expensive lines."
