    Ladies and gentlemen a 93 Honda Civic has spoken.

    We can now close the thread; sucks to see everyone get burned with a alpinist deemed ugly by a 93 Honda Civic. Resale values should plummet.

    For me, personally, this one looks much better than green dial version

    Does anyone make curved end rubber straps for the Alpinist?

    Agreed, mostly because the gold is gone

    Judging by Ginault bracelets fitting the Alpinist, any rubber straps that fit a rolex sub case should work on an alpinist

    I don't think I've seen one. I know Strapcode makes bracelets for it though.

    Re: Blue Seiko Alpinist US limited edition Hodinkee

    It is probably good that I actually sat at my desk and reviewed all those records and wrote a letter this morning before coming here and finding this thread.

    A BLUE ALPINIST!

    But, it seems to have a matte dial. If the bezel and case sides are polished, that's going to look a little odd, I think. I mean, if you're not going to have a sunburst dial, you at least need a glossy dial on the Alpinist, IMO. The whole point is that it's kind of a blingy field watch. If I want understated, I can just get a Khaki Field or a G10 or a Marathon and be done with it.

    I would have passed on it. Even at $450.

    OK, that said, and I don't mean to denigrate the new release, it is nice and a blue version is overdue. But I don't care about limited editions and US market only, yada, yada, yada. And yeah, it's a bit pricey, but prices go up and, yes, it is a "Special" or "Limited" edition.

    I picked up a -017 a month or so ago and I am still trying to work out how I feel about it. In the abstract, the green and gold is very pretty. Put in stainless steel case, and then put on my wrist, well, then it's tough to make it work with 95% of my wardrobe. I have one sport coat with which it is absolutely killer, and a few winter sweaters with which it plays well. With everything else... Let's just say it's a challenging watch. This blue one will definitely be less so, and I think those that bought it are going to LOVE it.

    To those who like it and got one, great! I'll be really interested to see how it looks on a bracelet or a light gray nato.
    The Even More Greatly Diminished WishList: Precista PRS-3 (upcoming quartz versioin Black or Blue); Sinn: 104 Black, Blue or Anthracite. Both of these, and I'm done. Really.
