    I wonder if Seiko will bring out another watch in this style, and with the same quality and the same package to the same pricé.
    Of the Sarb017 I have two, cuz I love them so much. I really cant find another model which gets close.

    Is there hope for another similar model ?!?

    SEIKO .... ?!? ..... you hear me !!!

    I cannot think of any other Green dial with dressy gold colored accents. The Alpinist line has been around a long time. The other dial color option was an off white one. Seiko kept the size the same - did not make newer versions at 45mm wide, like alot of the trendy solar divers etc.
    So, you are smart to grab 2! ....like me having bought 2 Omega X-33s which I loved!

    I think the SARGs are replacing the Alpinist, nice watches but the Alpinist is finished better and just has more personality.

    In fact the previous Alpinist was better than the current one (it has the 4S15 movement), and the SARG is not so nice as the SARB. Why is Seiko doing that with the Alpinist line is a mistery to me.

    IMHO this is the best Alpinist.

    I have the 2000 landtrek version with the 8F56, GMT, perp. and ti so this amounts to the same thing. The 017 has the wonderful green/gold trim which has hooked me in!

    Re: ***Official SARB017 Seiko Alpinist thread***

    In no small part because of this particular thread, I picked up an Alpinist recently. This is my first great watch, and I love how versatile it is by just changing the band. (Like the pictures below)

    I'm going on vacation down to the Caribbean soon, and I have been looking for a "beater" watch to wear down there, maybe a Vostok or something. But I do love the hell out of this watch, and I know it has the same water resistance rating as a Vostok anyway. Have any of you guys actually used this watch in the water? I wouldn't be diving with it, but I'd be going maybe 15ft down in salt water. I'm worried about messing it up (first nice watch, right?) Are my fears unwarranted??

    The Alpinist will be fine in 15 feet of water, I would be worried about scratching up the nice mirror polish on the case though and I probably wouldn't bring it for beach duty, that's what g-shocks are for.
