    Mine starts with a 4. I bought it new from Seiya 3-4 months ago.

    officially joined the club last night!



    loving it so far. Any good strap recommendations, something similar in nature to the seiko one but a little nicer and less plasticky looking?

    I too need a strap suggestion - brown/tan or similar color, no contrast stitching, and most importantly smaller length (e.g. 110/70mm) strap for my gf who wears this (has 6.3" wrists). Strangely enough I couldn't find anything yet.

    I found a George (Giorgos) in Greece who custom makes straps. He will take all the specs you wish and make the strap...down to the hole distance from the lug! I have 2 of his now. Also he has a Flickr site called Greenstraps you can google....his prices are reasonable....

    Here is his Flickr site and you can see his choices of thread color and strap colors...

    Has been a good strap for my smaller 6.25" wrist on a different watch. The strap is listed as being 6.5" long, so maybe a bit shorter than 110/70.

    Thanks, that may work out.

    Will a Hirsch Princess Teal work with the Alpinist color ?
