All in I think hodinkee and worn and wound are a net negative for the watch world consumer, but a great asset for producers.

    The grey NATO guy who does all the automotive stuff.....I wonder if he hated a supercar he drove and wrote about it that way if he would be invited back the next year?

    Even on forums and other social media people are being selected as influencers to advertise watches. They are just like you and me except they have financial gain to talk positively about a watch. I see it all over Instagram. This type of thing isn't going anywhere. With so many brands (and more every day) trying to get the attention of a divided customer base this is the way of the future.

    In that scenario I prefer the professional reviewers. The little guys on forums have zero incentive to reveal that they were given a free watch but they want you to know how good it is for you to spend your money on it.

    Anyway. Good talking watch journalism philosophy with you. Back to blue Alpinists and such!

    My bets are on Seiko releasing another alpinist but with a frost dial. They've used the frost dial on so many releases recently.

    The whole way this news traveled is fascinating. There are already YouTube videos and scalpers on Ebay. It really shows the power of Seiko's particular place in the "affordable enthusiast" part of the market. One email from Hodinkee this morning and it's like the hunger games out there.

    I would love it if they made a flat yellow Alpinist with white indices, and then black minute markers. I know they won't but that combo looks really good on Breitlings.

    The 017 has a great colorway going for it. This is double the price and NO LONGER JDM.

    So:
    -->Double the Price
    AND
    -->No longer JDM (which probably means, amazingly subpar QC).

    Hard Pass
