Easily had from any number of sellers on Rakuten direct from Japan.
Turning is a pointer, the passing of the time, the same is true. Time to rush to flow to me only care about you. If time is a circle, and you are in the circle of the other head.
So I know I'm a latecomer to this thread, and definitely not trying to hijack it... just wanted to comment that I am happily amazed to find that this watch is rare and gorgeous and that there's no real competition for a mechanical at this price point.
Everything about this watch is just amazing, and I have been looking and shopping in the 300-350 price range for a week now and can find nothing that compares to this watch without bumping up another 250-350 bucks.
I see that there is lots of talk about the stock band... There will be nothing left over for me to get a new band for it, so does anyone know the longevity of the stock band?
I have a Timex Expedition and an HMT Pilot that I could offer for trade on the watch strap forum, but I'd rather not, so I am wondering what kind of life I can expect to get from the stock band.
Thanks again. I'm digging this thread.
The 017 will feel and look larger than your snk but not overly so, you'll be fine with it.
The strap alone is more than worth the difference (the Hammy has one of the best leather straps I have seen, the sarb017 THE worst), I also give it an edge in the movement and has a display case back + domed sapphire crystal.
The SARB has a MUCH superior dial.
The alpinist is an amazing watch, but the Hammy is a very viable competitor
You do have to factor in the great strap on the Hamilton and lousy strap on the Seiko.
Agreed, especially on the strap... but for me these watches are in different categories. The Seiko seems dressier to me. More refined and less utilitarian. I really like the Hamilton, but want something with a little nicer look to it.
Thanks to you guys, now I have to put that Hamilton on my "will own one day" list. Every time I visit this board, that list gets longer...

That's great news! Like I said, I'm not super rough on my watches, but I am an everyday wear kind of guy... My watches get banged around some.
Btw, how is the lume on these? My snk sucks in that regard.
