A legendary aviation heritage

In the first 50 years of the past century Alpina was a renowned manufacturer and official supplier of military aviation watches to continental air forces. Early aviation pioneers had strict requirements: their instruments had to be extremely precise and provide ultimate shock resistance. In addition, Alpina pilot's watches were mostly equipped with an anti-magnetic case, highly contrasting dials with oversized luminous numerals and luminous hands for instant readability. Since its initial launch in 2011, the Startimer Pilot Collection has imposed itself as one of most recognized and recognizable professional pilot watches on the market.


Alpina introduces this new model, encasing the AL-725 Automatic Chronograph caliber, while at the same time honouring the 3 different fields of aviation: Air Force, Naval Aviation and Bush flying. The 3 aviation domains are symbolized by the respective dial colours of the thee models: Black for the Air Force, Petrol Blue for Naval Aviation and Military Green for bush flying.

The new Startimer Pilot Automatic Chronograph features the iconic Alpina aviation dial design, albeit with a slight vintage touch and the distinctive Alpina red triangle symbol at 12H. To insure perfect time readability, the running seconds counter at 9H has been hidden in order to create a vertical "bi-compax" counter layout.

The 44mm diameter stainless steel case with an oversized pilot screw-in crown features a scratchproof sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, an engraved screw-in case-back with the Startimer Pilot Collection symbol and is water-resistant up to 10 ATM /100M /330feet.

Za mě velice povedená novinka od Alpiny, doufám, že nevadí EN, překládat se mi to nechce, respektive na to ani není čas, ale ještě jsem je tu neviděl, takže jsem je musel přidat, tuplem když se mi líbí :)

Bells- kdy je budeš mít, abych je okoukl?

Vypadají moc dobře a mají datumovku, což oceňuji.

Cenu známe, dle webu Alpiny je to 2250 CHF, takže by se podle mě dali sehnat za celkem slušnou cenu.

 

Kuncáku bral bych je hned, fakt se mi líbí, ale teď je na pořadníku něco jiného, takže to asi jen tak nebude :) Teď jsem koukal, že by už měli být v Koscomu, chci se tam mrknout i na jiné hodinky, tak to asi vezmu při jednom.

Otázkou je, jako dlouhá to bude chvilka :) Hele dle webu je mají skladem, takže by je tam měli mít i vystavené, vůbec nevím, kdy se tam dostanu, mám teď nabito...ovšem vidět je chci a zároveň je i porovnat s klasickými bicompax

Dobrý směr. Co Alpinu koupil Citizen, tak mám z těch nových kousků dobrý pocit.
