    Also, it shows how much better the watch looks on an upgraded strap. Night and day difference.
    I was hoping for a hodinkee strap as part of the deal but that strap is branded seiko on the back.

    But I agree much better than the OEM 017 strap.

    It still might be a Hodinkee strap, but just branded Seiko.

    Not everyone has $650 to just throw at a watch and maybe resell it in a few months. Youíre fortunate if you do.

    I think the green + gold is much more interesting and unique but the compass chapter ring was never appealing to me. I also donít like chronographs either, as I wonít ever use these features and they crowd up the dial.

    I thought this looks like a seiko SNK field/military watch with alpinist hands. No one will know it was possibly $650 and not $65. But it has a following and will likely maintain some value. No way will it be worth $1000 though.

    Oh dear lord, if your wife divorces you, will you marry me??? We could swap watches. I only say that because the new Oris Big Crown Pointer is mouth-watering (I hate date windows, and I've always wanted an Oris), and the Intra-matic hits my horological G-spot. Mmmmmm!!!! I'm envious. Nice!

    Except they are. Two flippers on eBay have already sold theirs for that much.

    - credit cards open up a lot of doors if used responsibly. I never, ever use cash when buying online.
    - a limited edition Alpinist WILL sell immediately for what you paid or more, it's not even a question.

    Youíll always have a low percentage of extreme fools with way more cash than intelligence. That price wonít hold. Itís hype. Especially when 500 people are waiting to sell theirs after they receive it. And we havenít seen Seikos release.

    Itís a nice watch and anyone whoís excited about it. Iím happy for you. Wear it and enjoy it. Of course. If you bought it to flip it.. well good luck.
