I purchased this watch on a whim, to see how the quality of Alpha watches is.  Turns out it's a very nice watch.  I sent the watch to Duarte at North East Watch Works and had him bead-blast the entire watch and install new hands.  I think it's a vast improvement!  I can highly recommend North East Watch Works if you want to have some customization done.  I'm very happy with the work, and the service was fantastic!
