I'm a fan of any and all Seiko 8f56 watches. Have admired the Alpinist in its various versions and very much look forward to receiving this soon. This has the lumed hand and markers rather than other SBCJ021 with fully lumed dial. SBCJ031 came with leather strap and this includes the titanium band as well. Any other owners out there?

That's a beauty! I really love the small Alpinists - quartz or mechanical.

I have one and while the lume dial was interesting at first the hands are hard to read during the day.

On a plus side the compass crown is at 2 vs. 4 of the previous model and seems to stay aligned throughout the day better than the 4S15 did.
