Part of the 2000 Prospex line up, this watch was produced for a couple of years, the 8F56 movement GMT featured in this watch is a high accuracy quartz, with perpetual calendar, huge 10 year battery life and a GMT related ability to correct for timezone changes or daylight savings time without affecting the minute/second hand. This watch just keeps on ticking without the need, paradoxically, to ever “set the time”. Get whatever models you want and can find with this high end quartz movement and do it now because when they're gone they are gone.

Apparently Seiko decided that the 8F caliber was just too competitive with caliber 8J inside their Grand Seikos, so they were phased out. It is a sobering thought that as even Grand Seiko did not have the calendar programmed into the movement.. which one is the better value?

Indeed, there are many worthy 8F watches to compete with GS, the Red Alpinist for which you pay the same as a vintage Grand Seiko, the Prospex, the Landtrek or the Perpetual calendar. All of these are made of titanium and finished to a very high standard and usability. So, this is not merely a Seiko Titanium quartz… In fact, the Seiko Alpinist GMT Titanium SBCJ019 (long since discontinued) is one of the rarest models ever made, setting you back well over a 1000 dollars.
