    Thanks - that's nice to know.... As for the difference - you can see this thread HERE that discusses it... There is some debate too that the C version has a slightly better / longer power reserve. I don't know if that is true or not... and I am not even sure if the 24 vs 23 jewels is true either.. For the most part... all I truly hope is that my SARB017 will arrive in one piece, will run just fine, and look every bit as good as the pictures of that sweet green dial I have seen so often. It has got to be, in my opinion, one of the best looking watches I have ever seen.

    Heck - even when I looked at that picture above with the SARB017 and the Rolex.. I thought to myself... hell yeah I would like that Rolex! Why? Well... cause it's a ROLEX! They are great watches... but in all honesty... That Sarb looks better! ;)

    Thanks for that, an interesting read. Mine is still 23J, but I timed the power reserve to about 55hrs

    Well got my email back from Seyia

    The bracelet which fits with SARB017 is out of production and sold out.. Not available for sale any more.

    Solves that I guess

    I would say that I'd let you know if I ever decide to sell mine ...but we all know that ain't ever gonna happen!

    My thought exactly, while watching that photo.

    BTW, out of pure curiosity I've just opened my Alpinist (bought 2 months ago) and its C movement with 23 jewels inside.

    Anyone know of an aftermarket bracelet with solid end links that will fit?

    I got this beautiful retro style watch a short time ago, replaced the horrible strap with a Hirsch Siena and was enjoying it a lot till....
    I noticed a very small dot on the dial, located southeast of the "0" in "10".



    What should I do?
    Do you think it is "returnable" because of this imperfection?
    It is very minimal, but one of those "once you've seen it you can't unsee it".

    If you are not happy with it and you can return it I would. As you say once you have seen it you will look at it every time and think why did I not change it. (JMO). DW.
