    Alpha Day/Date

    Looking to pick up one of these but I noticed they are no longer on listed on Alpha HK's website (apart from the one with stone bezel)

    Is there any other place I can find the Day/Dates ?

    I was asking this same question a day or so ago. I went ahead and contacted the HK site and just received this reply.


    "No more. thanks"


    I guess that bout sums it up. Seems like they would do another run of these watches if there is demand. Maybe it looked to close to another more expensive brand or something to that effect. Either way I feel like we missed out on a really cool watch. Maybe they will reconsider if more people contact them with requests.

    Re: Alpha Day/Date

    That's about $75, which is not too bad. Shipping might add another $20 though. It sounds like that may be the only way to get one as my take is Alpha will not be making these again. I can't say I understand why they would stop making a watch that they were selling consistantly.

    Anyone out there with more insight as to the mindset over at Alpha? I mean are they one of these watch companies that likes to do a run, sell out, and say "oh well they were a Limited Edtition so you should have ordered when we had them." ? I really tend to dislike that marketing strategy and it often drives me away.
