This year, iconic Startimer collection has been enriched by several new models. Faithful to its aviation history, Alpina unveiled the Startimer Pilot Quartz Big Date Chronograph, a new watch with a daring look. Since 1921, the aviation universe represents one of the brand greatest source of inspiration.
In addition, the Alpina Watch Models Replica Startimer Automatic’s width of 44mm at a comparatively thin 10.7mm could be challenging for those with smaller or rounder wrists though I understand why the watch is a bit large as dimensions is another important aspect of a pilot’s watch. Consider the popular IWC Big Pilot in a whopping 46.2mm or a real vintage military pilot watch like the Laco B-Uhr in a now unwearable 55mm (supposed to be worn over a flight-suit) and the Alpina starts to seem like a more reasonably sized option with just enough heft to let you know it had been designed with aviation legacy in mind.When you are discussing a completely featured Swiss made watch in a price point such as that of the Startimer Automatic, you expect to end up with a somewhat less impressive movement to provide some economies but in this case, the Alpina AL-525 quality gets the work done. Although it’s basically a base grade ETA 2824-2 having an Alpina rotor, the 38-hour power reserve AL-525 is exactly the correct kind of movement for the spirit of this watch and empowers the exceptionally approachable price of entry. When you get right down to it, a pilot’s watch requires little more than an accurate and robust movement and also the ETA 2824-2 has had that precise reputation for decades. Servicing is also easy with such a ubiquitous caliber and any competent watchmaker ought to be able to keep it in shape. 1 thing I would like to mention that I love is that the large crown, which is a wonderful tapered design.
In addition to these creations, Alpina Watches Marketing Replica concluded two new partnerships: the first one with champion air racer, Mike Goulian and the second one with Team Goulian throughout the exciting Red Bull Air Race World Championships.

This notorious model is introduced in an all-new camouflage color pattern of grey and black in an oversized screwed-in 44 mm black PVD-treated case with large luminous white numerals. The three chronograph counters are showcased at three, six and nine o’clock, including the 1/10th of a second chronograph. A detailed engraved Alpina Genève logo embellishes the back of the watch. The screwed-in crown offers maximum protection and the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal completes the look, which may reveal to be slightly different from what we expect from a pilot watch but remains true to its strict standards. The whole is offered with a black genuine leather strap, which gives the watch a fierce personality.
Alpina Watches continues to be a major influencer in the pilot watches segment not only in terms of design but sensible prices as well, and the Startimer Pilot Quartz Big Date Chronograph at 995 CHF is no exception.
