    The Alpinist is rated at 20bar or 200m, so if you trust this rating, you should be fine. Remember that the watch is meant as an adventure watch despite how dressy it looks! Make sure the crown is secured and go for it! :)

    I like mine too much to take it near the saltwater or sand, hunting is as far as I will go. That green dial just shouts out woodlands.

    I didn't realize there were so many variations on this watch, that PC Ti is lovely!

    Has anyone purchased this one recently from Higuchi? If so, what was the price he asked?
    Since Chino no longer ships to europe, Seiya and Higuchi are the only options left.

    No. I got the bracelet from Seiya a few weeks ago. 159 dollars.
    Which left me no choice but to buy myself the watch.

    I'm glad I did because I was disappointed at how it looked on my wrist with the leather.
    It looks much more with the bracelet imo.
    I wear quite a large Fossil at work so I probably just need to get used to the smaller size.

    I might I'm getting used to it already.
    I have my eye on a Hirsch liberty gold as someone else on the thread has or that bund strap if someone will tell me what it is?

    I was thinking to buy the Mariner instead of Liberty. It's slimmer, and should be a little more water resistant.

    First thanks everybody responding to my cry. If only Seiko ....
    Anyway can you believe not long ago I sold some watches cuz eyeing a Tudor BB and want free myself of some pieces.
    I really took my somewhat rocked Alpinist (micro scratch and a little dent - doorframe - nothing more) in consideration for selling too.

    All others went away, the Alpinist altough having a fresh brand new piece left, I couldnt do it.
    Iam sure even if I would have three I couldnt sell even one.
    Maybe I am kinda sick ....?!

    As I am kinda WIS I really hope there will be a model, catching my heart like that again.

    I guess for Seiko this offer was to good to be true, and they realized it.
    Its a rocker, its a diver, its a dresser and a fieldwatch, its perfect.
    That said, the SARGs are a clear step down.


    PS call me crazy, I love her on a high quality black Zulu. :)
