    Just a little accuracy note: I've had mine on since Friday evening, only taken off for showering, its now Monday and its gained one second in that time. Pretty awesome.

    That gold mod does look good, though it's not really my cup of tea. Great work! I like the very subtle gold hints on the watch, because I have a belt with a brass buckle and I generally like to match metal tones (yellow vs. white in general). The slight hint of gold on the SARB017 lets me get away with wearing that belt (which I really like) with a watch with a white metal case.

    I really like the photos that capture the dial at it's darkest shades.

    Lately I've been torn between a silver khaki field auto and an Alpinist but I've finally settled on the Seiko. The Hamilton looks great and felt great when I tried one on, but the Seiko just has something a bit more to it. Unique.

    Does anyone have a good source for SEL's to fit the Alpinist? Short of getting an 015 bracelet that is! I've got this great two tone (polished & brushed) bracelet with good solid links, but the end links are folded and have gotten a little misshapen over time. I love the bracelet though, really adds to the solid feel of the watch, just wish I could get some quality SEL to match!

    Some of you may have read the other thread I started where I was asking for help to find a bracelet for the Alpinist. My Yobokies Super Oyster is no longer cutting it. One of the spring bars popped off of the lug and other day. Somehow that endlink fit is not working out. I really don't like this watch on leather so in desperation I tried out some bracelets from my other watches and ended up with this

    I'd prefer all stainless but the two tone matches since the dial has gold markers. What do you guys think?
