I just wish those Alpinist 1959s came with all brushed finish on the case and bracelet.There are a few variations of Seiko Alpinists for those unaware - SPB11x (dual crown cathedral), SPB15x (single crown cathedral), and SPB24x (single crown modern). And also the SJE Alpinist which is in a completely different price bracket.

The Murph is a nice watch and rightfully so costs more. Its extremely short lug to lug combined with the thinner case also cannot be ignored for smaller wrists. With that said it’s not quite a competitor to the more toolish Alpinist watches which come with AR coated crystals and screw down crowns.
