    That's a nice looking watch. My advice: let it go, check f29 in a few months when people who impulse-bought them are flipping them for $400 (and disappointed that being "LE" won't bring more).

    Not a fan of blue. Would of snatched one up in a second of it was black.

    The loose compass bezel is why I will never own an Alpinist. I do love the color they chose here. Happy for the fans.

    I'm in for one. I didn't see the email for an hour and a half and was surprised they were still available. I've always liked the idea/size of the Alpinist, but could never get into the gold/green/polish look. Price seems a little high, but that's where we are. I think the blue will be desirable if we don't want to keep them.

    It doesn't have gold hour markers like the green Alpinist. Which is a shame.

    For the money, you could get any Cocktail Time of your choice or a Sumo if you really wanted the 6R15 movement.
    You could even get a Hamilton with an ETA movement which is a little more refined.
    Of course, you can still buy the original green Alpinist and it would actually cost less.

    Very clever timing though to bring out the blue Alpinist LE after learning the discontinued green Alpinist has so many fans!

    Doubtful , unless a non-le version is released.

    Too much pent up demand for a non-green Alpinist for it to sell for less than the standard green version which is $450-550 depending on seller these days.

    This isn't a new LE save the pandas turtle we are talking about.

    You could also buy a nice BMW instead of a Patek Phillipe or get a million watches instead of getting married, what's your point?
