Probably the most beautiful Alpinist, at least in my humble opinion ...
The colors work very well on this watch: emerald green, gold, cream, stainless steel, touch of red and brown (strap).
This is the third SARB017 I've owned ... keeps drawing me back
The emerald green dial is very hard to capture ...
The overall quality of the watch is superb for the price point - it is highly polished with some very fine brushing on the topside of the lugs.
The stock leather strap is very stiff and not comfortable. I switched it immediately and replaced it with a dark brown (cream contrast stitching) croc strap that makes a world of difference.
The new Alpinists offered by Seiko are a disappointment IMHO. Hopefully this one is a keeper. They are discontinued and rarely show up on the sales forums.
