    Re: Blue Seiko Alpinist US limited edition Hodinkee

    So I got mine today. I'm going to be 100% honest... I hate it.

    Hodinkee seriously pulled a fast one on their fanbase by Photoshopping the crap out of the photos and what seems to be intentionally hiding the sunburst dial and polished bezel, and their entire little essay they wrote didn't even mention it.

    Talk about FAKE NEWS. Don't ever trust Hodinkee as a source for anything.

    The dial looks black 90% of the time and the other time, a dark sunburst blue in direct sunlight.

    The blue on my daily Ti Seamaster is closer to a slate gray-blue and it somehow seems similar to this sunburst blue. Seriously, piss off Hodinkee photographers!!

Boy, was he upset. Then just yesterday he posts a video after one of his subscribers sent him one at no mark up. Good lord, what drama but in the end, that poor fella finally got his watch. I just mention this because it was amusing. To echo your remarks, congrats on all those who secured one. They're terrific.
    That guy... what a hoser. His channel has basically turned into commercials for anybody willing to send him a watch.

    Well you are about to get a lot of PMs asking to buy it! Give it a chance I wasn't too impressed initially either. It is hard to capture in pictures. I have taken so many pics of my green one and just deleted them because they never look good or accurate.

    I initially thought hodinkee intentionally made it look like a more urban type watch for their core audience. But then why? This would have sold out just as fast with better pictures or better description.
