    Hi All,

    Long time lurker and first time poster. I came to this forum looking to make a decision between a Tag Heuer & Omega Speedy but I ended up deciding to spend that money on 3 other watches, thanks to WUS. I already have the Seiko SARB065 Cocktail time (beautiful watch!) and now thanks to this thread, a SARB017 is on its way from Japan and I'm already looking to replace the stock strap with a Gold Brown strap. I'll post pictures when the watch arrives!

    The other watch that I plan to order in October is Longines Conquest GMT with the blue dial.

    Do you find the alpinist to be too large or "chunky". I have an 8 inch wrist.

    It's small for today's standard, so not at all too large. The opposite may be the problem for some.

    Except that I find most current watches hideously large. I still wonder if it is too large?

    Thanks! I ordered the watch from Higuchi and he will be shipping it only during the middle of this week. I have to wait for a little longer unfortunately, but on the bright side, I have ordered a Hirsch Lucca and it should be here around the same time as the watch.

    I know this would be covered here somewhere, but is there a "how to" on replacing the stock strap on SARB017?

    Just scored a Rare black dial 4s15-6000 Alpinist Red. Can't wait til it comes. Maybe somehow it will quench my thrist for the sarb017 or maybe it'll increase it more?
