    The article does mention this:

    "The HODINKEE Shop is the only retailer to be offering this exciting new release other than Seiko themselves, and we don't expect our limited supply to last long."

    I suppose that means a release from Seiko is possible. Maybe a non-limited release without the LE markings on the caseback.

    Yeesh that's steep... but about on par with what they've done with their pricing lately.

    I wouldn't pay more than around $450 for a NOS Alpinist these days. Amazon is not a good barometer for pricing on discontinued SARBs anymore... not since the discounted direct from Amazon supply dried up.

    Hopefully with another sunburst type dial.

    I do think that is real risk here but I went in anyway.

    I have to check it out in person. I'm also glad it isn't sunburst. Hoping the blue is closer to the DARK BLUE of the Bumo & SKX009 models.

    Dont worry, you'll be able to find one on ebay for $1000.00 shortly. No doubt.

    So Seiko themselves will be the only other retailer? Does that mean Seiko boutiques?

    With such a finite amount i doubt it. Probably online only? I got one, and I'm in CA as well. If I dont like it, you're welcome to have it, if you didnt get one.

    I've been on the fence about an Alpinist for quite sometime. I just wasn't sure about the gold hands + markers. I also favor blue dials and from the one photo it appears to be a sunburst dial. I think I just fell of the fence and the wagon.........lol Looks like I may be parting with a couple watches to help fund one.
