    please tell me itís not worth $650

    Always wanted an alpinist due to the size (39.5) and the dual crowns. But $650 is steep for a compass complication Iíll never use.
    limited to 1,959 pieces and from hodinkee I think itíll sell out any minute.

    I love Seiko, blue and the Alpinist but $650 seems a bit on the rich side.

    That’s what I was thinking. If they included a bracelet It might have been game over for me be the strap and blue dial don’t help the $150 premium

    I was tempted until I saw the price. Makes me appreciate my $360 SARB017 even more.

    Hopefully this makes it into production. I hate the green one. Looks like something an old man would wear, or something that's missing an Oakland A's logo on it.

    For $650 - forget about it.

    EDIT: the photos are strange to me. Am I looking at polished steel, brushed steel, or bead-blasted steel? Looks like any of the three, depending on the shot.

    EDIT EDIT: Never mind. I found a better shot. (The one with the hand in the jacket pocket). Looks like the usual SARB case - polished steel around the inner part, and brushed lugs.

    Why does everyone keep saying $650? Am I the only one seeing it at $600?

    Doesn't have the retro charm of the green one.
