  1. Seiko 8f56 Alpinist $850

    Watches - Private Sellers and Sponsors
    This is the highly sought after 8f56 Alpinist black dial. Titanium case, sapphire glass, perpetual calendar. Just had a battery change and a new movement fitted so will be ticking away til 2025 at least before you need to change the battery. Condition is good. Some light scratches on the sides...
  2. WTB Seiko 8F56 Alpinist GMT

    WTB - Wanted to Buy
    I'm looking for one of these guys. I've found a few around the web, but I'd rather buy from a WUS member, as I've had good luck here and I trust the community. I would prefer it on the original titanium bracelet, but that's not a deal breaker. I also don't need the box & papers, but will...
  3. FSOT: Seiko 8F56-0020 Perpetual Calendar GMT - price drop

    This is a catch and release for me. I just acquired this watch, but realized I really would like to put my travel watch on a NATO - so this rare example can be yours! In case anyone isn't familiar with this model, it's a perpetual calendar (automatically adjusts for months with less than 31 days...

  5. Re-programming a Seiko Milemarker #8F56

    Public Forum
    Hi, folks; The battery in my SCT 109 Seiko Mile Marker is dead, and I dug down to purchase a "genuine" Seiko CR2412 replacement (#301A95N1, if you must know) for $17 rather than spend 4 bucks for what's probably an equally good replacement, because this item comes with a proper-orientation...

  7. Transplanting a Seiko 8F56 mechanism into an 8F32 case

    This is my first time posting, gentlemen, but I've enjoyed reading your comments for years. I need advice, please. I have a simply gorgeous case (including dial, hands, calendar wheel) for an 8F32, but it has no works. I can, at little expense, acquire an 8F56 which is happily ticking, but...

  10. Seiko 8F56 Perpetual Calendar Question

    I hope someone has an opionion on this - I have a recently purchased Seiko 8F56 (GMT) movement and now that February turned to March I discovered the calendar is off. I have done the calendar check by pulling the crown to position 1 and returnining within 1 second. The second hand jumps 3 times...
  11. 8F56 movement in a Seiko SBCM023 Case?

    I've just ordered a SMCM023 Seiko Diver and am looking forward to wearing it. I think that it should make a great grab-and-go beater and it'll be handy in the water as a safer alternative to the Fortis chrono I usually wear. However, I'd really like to have a dive watch which is good for...
