    Just posting to say mine showed up last night. I thought I wasn't getting it for another week, so that was a really great surprise.

    I'm really enjoying my first day honeymoon with it. It is a beautiful watch.

    Trying it on a black Maratac Elite Composite...I don't think it's right.
    Think I want to get a bracelet. Maybe even shark mesh!

    Beautiful watch. Bracelet is lively, much better than the standard seiko offering, but mine now lives on buffalo leather with a seiko deployant.dont settle for the cheaper deployant a, I tried them, they suck. Seiko one is outstanding.

    I have too many watches, but there are really only a few that I want to keep, and the Alpinist is definitely one of them. Aside from the overall quality of watch and bracelet, excellent size, accuracy and unique (and attractive) look, I have to point out two little non-essential details I just can't help but love on this watch: the shape of the lume patch at the end of the second hand, and the black background on the date wheel. While not a big deal, I can't help but notice these two items all the time, and love them!

    I love this watch except for the numbered hour markers. I just can not stand that. At most I can handle it at 12. But that is even pushing it. Too bad because I would love to have one. I guess I will just have to make do with my sarb059 Alpinist.

    My take is just the opposite. I looked at the 059 but was turned off by the lack of sapphire and that it looked too much like a modded SKX007. Don't get me wrong I love my SKX's and have several. I opted for the 017 because it has a unique, "one of" case design. I'm not real big on numerals on watches either, but understand that numbers are de riguer for Explorer style watches.
