    It's funny how an Alpinist can mean so many different things... I bough mine as an 'encouragement' and 'independence' gift for myself when my wife left me!

    after having an interesting discussion with a wis friend, i've a question for you alpinist owners.

    in what category would you put this watch?

    it's not a dress watch.

    it's not a diver.

    it's not an aviator watch.

    what is it?

    i tried to explain to him that the alpinist is a category of its own, but to no avail :)

    I would say it's an explorer style watch.

    An awesome watch?

    I use it as my "nice" casual watch, while my Sumo is the more "sporty" casual.

    I would agree with chillwill120, but with jdto as well.
    It is just great overall, becomes dressy on an "elegant" leather strap:



    But can look easily much sportier on a NATO:

    What strap is that? It's really nice.

    I have a Hirsch Buffalo brown with white stitching on the way for this watch, but that one would look nice on my SARB035.

    well, i'd agree with the explorer style, but cathedral hands have nothing to do with explorers ;)
