    I'm a fan of having the bracelet option if available too. I bought one from Chino.

    a matter of preference, really.

    if you want your alpinist to look dressier & more unique, go for the leather strap.

    if you want your alpinist to look more like a tool&beater watch, go for the bracelet.

    personally, i wear mine on a steel bracelet, because i shower with that watch :)

    I think the Alpinist would look great with a bund strap.

    Does anyone know what is the lug to lug measurement, thanks!

    If I remember correctly 20mm and 18mm at the clasp.

    The Bund is a winner in my book...

    20mm is lug width, I think he needs distance between spring bars for a bund...

    My Alpinist w/ a Darlena Woodland strap and polished RHD double fold deployment clasp. The clasp works so much better than a buckle, especially on these thick straps. this will be my bird hunting watch with the leather strap and a sport option with the SS bracelet...

    I had an 017 but sold it 2 years ago. Then a few months ago I spotted a used one with bracelet in my favorite consignment store....and grabbed it. It came with box and original strap etc. The bracelet is nice and easy to wear but looks better with a shade of brown strap IMO. I think I will switch later on...

    I have been looking for my next purchase for a while now...I was deciding between a Stowa Antea small seconds, the cocktail time and the alpinist.... I couldn't decide so I decided to go for BOTH the alpinist and the cocktail time for under the price of the antea (thanks to the still-weak yen). Very excited to join the club soon!
