    Sure, it's actually from an invicta, I believe the model number is 9309a. It basically looks like the invicta 8926 except it's two tone and quartz. This gives me hope that I could use a stainless steel bracelet from one of the other invicta submariner look-alikes. Only problem is I'm not crazy about the invicta signed clasp, but this will do for now. The fit is actually better than the one from Yobokies Super Oyster.

    Nice! Did you have to modify the end-links at all? I know of a really nice solid end-link glide-lock oyster that fits the 8926ob perfectly, so it may fit the Alpinist>>> 20mm Stainless Steel Oyster Glide Lock Bracelet for Submariner GMT Watch | eBay

    Nope, did not modify it at all. Thanks for the link!

    Now that I think of it, the 8926 has a larger case since it's a mechanical watch versus the 9309. It may not be as good a fit, but hopefully the lugs are the same or similar even though the case size is different.

    This is one of the most classy field watches IMO.

    It can be classified as an explorer style watch.

    My alpinist was running exactly +10 seconds everyday come hell or high water. After a couple months of wearing it, it's now only +3 seconds after 2 days! ​very pleased!
