For Sale: Seiko Champion Alpinist circa. 1963 £750750 £ -
For sale is this very, rare Seiko Champion Alpinist 850 Diashock from 1963. This is the Stainless Steel version with the cool 24hr Sector Dial and is in amazing condition (in my opinion of course). I bought the Watch only recently but incomings necessitate a sale, a shame but books have to be balanced.
For a great article on the background behind these fantastic Watches,Christoph MacNeill has written a great article on Worn and Wound. Which can be found here. http://wornandwound.com/?s=Seiko alpinist
