Alpina Announces New Startimer Pilot Designs ¶
Hot off the press from Matt Baily favourite Alpina is news of a series of pilot style automatic watches, designed to evoke the classic Big Pilot Fliegeruhr. Available in three variations - automatic bicompax chronograph, automatic three hand with date, and automatic with their manufacture movement - the Alpina Startimer combines Alpina's good value with a beautiful timeless sport watch design. It's clear that Alpina's target is IWC and their various Pilot models, but at a much more reasonable price.
Featuring a 44mm stainless steel case with a clean, perfectly legible luminous dial and big luminous sword hands, the Startimer will be produced in a limited run of 8888 pieces. The series has been designed in partnership with Cessna and Privatair, so this is no poseurs pilot watch, it's the real deal made for two well known aviation companies.
