    I demand that they send a representative here to eat my last year's thread and the 3 watches that I bought as a result. (As a matter of principle, because I enjoyed that thread and still like the watches).

    They give three reference numbers, I hope there will be a version without gold accents among them.

    Has anyone seen any photos or renderings? I'm looking at lashing out on a rare-ish sharks tooth Alpinist but won't if they're going to re-release it with an updated movement next year.

    This is all I can find. It seems legit but it was on another forum without a reference. If the below is anything to go by, I think I'll settle for a SARB015 with its inferior 6R15 50hr movement.

    You mean you were set for the 'red' with 4S15?
    Is SARB015 even available anywhere?

    The white one will probably look like this...

    Alan's review of his new arrival reminded me to update this thread with info I find important (and worrying).

    It looks like the new Alpinist is no stranger to Seiko's notorious alignment issues.

    (Around 7:10, if you don't want to watch the whole vid).



    Conclusion: gotta buy in person or risk a defective product.

    I am quite happy with my old one, and it doesn't have a cyclops! Yay!
    Too many watches, not enough wrists.
