馃槃Nice True ! 馃榾 It's great that you decided to finally go for it, and didn't
wait any longer. Because I can imagine that with the holiday shopping just
about to begin, that the watch may not stay in stock. Terrific decision !
Now it's on it's way to you, and will be there in no time I bet.

Will be fun seeing that green right?! 馃槈And the rest of the watch of course.
A COLOSSAL congrats here ahead of time 2 U !!!

Thanks guys,the specs say it is 39.5 so pretty close. I figured that since Seiko stopped making these when they introduced the new 2020 version Amazon is going to run out of their remaining stock at some point. Thats why I decided to by it now.


Oh wait,this article says it has a 38mm case. so maybe it is the new 2020 version that has a 39.5 case?


Some cool pictures of Vintage Alpinists here

Yeah I heard they were coming out with a smaller version. That's why I was curious. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Congratulations!
Every time I see that watch it's yes no yes no. Something about it grabs me, and something else push it away.
It's probably stunning in hand. That was a good idea jumping in before it shrinks.

when you put like this, have to say I'm partial to that steel and black. The bright brass hands lose me, and the strap.
The functions cool, and the clasp.

The regular Alpinist is beautiful, and has some really neat looking
dials to choose from True. But that texture on the Baby version is
really nice as well ! 馃榾馃槑 You have the texture, and then it looks
to be gradient style at the same time.

They are all really nice sir ! 馃槈

I have always liked the aesthetics of the SARB017. In the UK it's hard to pick up even a good used one at a reasonable price. I have a gut feeling it's one of those watches I would love initially, and then go off. That said, if one ever comes up at the right price I may consider it.

So true there True, and now you don't have to worry about waiting,
or even hoping that comes back in stock. Especially with Holidays
right around the corner too. :)馃槈You can imagine that there will
be a ton of people trying to track this stunner down in the coming
days, and weeks. But you are done, and dont have to worry. 馃槈
Well done, and what a shot of this one by the way ! 馃槑Renderings,
and even stock photos never do a watch justice.

I mean look at this True ! ..The dial just comes alive, and you really
appreciate the green, and just whole feel, and style. Even the case
seems to glisten, and gleam flawlessly. Wow, BIG congrats here sir !!!
