    Another pic of the Seiko SARB017 Alpinist. I've tried out a leather NATO for it today.

    Well my one week experiment is over. After one week the watch is a mere +2 seconds fast. Basically I've been wearing it 24 hours a day (not in the shower of course!) and I've been giving it a few winds before going to bed. I found that the one night that I forgot to put it back on my wrist after my shower it gained a few seconds and last night I forgot to wind it before bed and it lost a few seconds. But when the watch is wound and worn 24/7 my experience is that the accuracy is +/- 0 seconds per day which is just ridiculous! I fully expect that once the hot Tokyo summer comes then it will lose this accuracy but right now I'm totally pleased that my little Seiko auto is more accurate than a Rolex!

    hi..i heard from a friend that his sarb017 has misalignment on the compass (while the N is aligned to the 12 o'clock, the S isn't aligned with the 6 o'clock)..is anyone experiencing this problem?

    You shouldn't have looked, you only have yourself to blame. Me, I'll sit here happy with my head in the sand ;)

    Hi everyone,

    I just got my SARB017 yesterday (purchased from Higuchi). Here's a quick photo to share with you...
