    I've got one with polished bits and I think I works great with the Alpinist. The silver matches the silver, the green matches the dial, the red picks up the red accents in the bezel and the black makes a nice blank canvas to put the whole thing on, perfect.

    I find Mike Dowling's choice of tan to be my favorite leather. I will have this custom made one from Greece...The lighter brown tones really show off the wonderful green dial...

    This is my second Alpinist which came with the bracelet. The clasp on it is rather cheap and does not ly flat. The OEM brown is too dark for my liking too, hence the camel colored choice..

    I went through all 21 pages of this thread, and you got me hooked as well. I want it - like all my watches - on bracelet. Importing Seiko to Germany is a pain though. I heard customs sends all Seikos to Seiko to check authenticity first.

    Switched it to a brown leather NATO for the holiday weekend. Again, this one also has the PVD hardware because I got it for my Speedy & my Flieger (which both look great on). Since NATOstrap Co. had 40% off over the weekend I went ahead & ordered a lighter brown leather NATO with polished hardware specifically for the Alpinist

    Just got mine yesterday. Living in Japan, the price for this beauty is even more of a steal (USD$432 with bracelet)! I'm in love with it, and impressed with it's accuracy (+3 seconds in 24 hours).

    Matthew, nice watch... Enjoy! Now I know where all the Pappy is too. Is it as hard to find in Japan as in the US?

    Impossible now, I haven't been able to find a bottle in a year and a half. This bottle of 23 was a gift that I received that I'm saving for a very special occasion! I used to be able to find the 20's relatively easily (for about ¥13,000), but as I said, those days are gone.
