The news has spread around everywhere this week at a fast rate. Seiko has announced that they wlll halt production of some of their most popular and affordable models that most watch enthusiasts love. The models that will no longer be produced will include the famous "Alpinist" or SARB017, Sarb033, Sarb035, and lastly SBDX017. I cannot really understand why they would do this unless they are preparing to release a lot of new watches at Baselworld 2018 coming in just a few weeks in Switzerland. These watches are all still widely available for purchase from various retailers such as Amazon and other watch shops. If I was you and I would probably grab one now before these models slowly disappear from the shelves. This can also drive the Pre-Owned prices of these affordable watches up on Ebay and forums as well. If you were thinking about buying one of these models and were on the fence I would suggest buying one now before they sell out. I have left some links below and pictures where all these models are available still at their respectable prices.
