Would love to buy the blue version. However, difficult to find, and gray market prices are just silly.

Retail is $600 and you can find for under $800 on eBay ... would hardly call this silly .

Have both. They are fantastic.

They definitely need to update the strap on the green though. The blue wasn't great either, but the strap that came with the green was possibly the worst I've ever seen.

I don't think anybody gets the Alpinist for the strap. Just swap it out. It's a known thing.

Someone asked about the size of the Alpinists. They are 39mm. Here is a comparison with a 36mm 14270.

The SARB017 has gotten a great deal of use in its five years. The 8 year old SARB013 (in production for approximately 2 years) I reserve for special occasions. The Explorer has taken the place of the SARB017 as my all of the time watch.
