Guys, talk me out of flipping my Alpinist.
Yeah, since all of the other Alpinist models are discontinued, it would seem that Seiko will discontinue the 017 pretty soon as well. At which point it will be even more desirable and valuable. I'll hold onto it for a while longer. It's just that I've been giving my SKX a lot more wrist time lately so I started feeling bad having a $500 watch that get's little wrist time. But the alpinist is nice to have as a dressier but still sporty watch.

I like the Alpinist, my major concern with it till now is: (i) the Seiko OEM bracelet is not good, and it was very expensive, (ii) the watch is gaining 20-25 seconds every day, maybe it will settle down in a month. In any case, my S/O has taken a liking to the Alpinist and wears it now so its not going anywhere.
I'm 5'10 185 so a 39mm watch looks fine on me, so I'm not worried about the size of the Alpinist at all.
