Re: Seiko Alpinist comeback?

Darn, I was so excited when I saw the black dial watch on the picture, it looked like the earlier version of the Alpinist, the one with the hi beat movement. :grin: I have not seen any other data though or pictures so don't know the other details mentioned... but I agree, I would prefer the writing ...

Seiko Alpinist comeback?

I don't know if you saw this or not but I really like the Alpinist and think this is an interesting piece of news from Seiko: https://www.seiyajapan.com/blogs/news/the-alpinist-will-make-a-comeback-in-jan-2020 Here a pic of the newer black dialed model, I really like it: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/fi...

Re: Pancor's P03

Too small for me but also I think the proportion of the hands vs the markers is off. Either larger/wider hands or smaller markers. Otherwise it is nice.

Thank you both, the turtle looks great. The hands should be an easy fix.

I agree that the Samurai is not the easiest to mod, but I think I have an idea... :grin:

Just an idea I had for a while...

I always liked the Seiko SRP043 looks, the one the some people call SPORK. I never really liked the case too much, but overall it is one of my favorite models from Seiko. I tried to kind of put the same idea on a Samurai and this is what resulted... The dial is from Dagaz and the hands are from the ...

Is it me, or do the hands not work well with the dial?
I think the seconds hand is out of place. Otherwise it looks nice. But could use better colors on the bezel insert in my opinion. :grin:

they need to come out with a newer design that is easier to wear.

Maybe an owner can correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think Seiko puts a very large premium on these – the community resale value seems to be where the gouging takes place.
