I don't have an Alpinist, but I think I may want to get one for my daughter. Would anybody know which models of Alpinist were being produced in April 2011? Had Seiko completely switched to the 6R15 movement at that time?

Alpinist questions

1. April 2011 Alpinist products available were SARB015 (black w/different dial design), SARB016 (cream), SARB017(green dial with same dial design as cream). All were excellent 6R15 movement with hand wind and hacking capability in addition to automatic operation. SARB017 green with attractive brown strap still available through various distributors. And more modern conventional looking silver Alpinist with bracelet has been announced and available.
