For over 50 years, Alpina has been a renowned manufacturer and official supplier of military aviation watches to continental air forces. Adhering strictly to early aviation requirements, instruments had to be extremely precise and provide ultimate shock resistance. Alpina’s pilot watches were mostly equipped with an anti-magnetic case, highly contrasting dials with oversized luminous numerals and luminous hands for instant readability. Launched in 2011, the Startimer Pilot Collection has been highly successful.
The new Startimer Pilot Automatic maintains all the pilot features the Startimer Collection is known for. The combination of the excellent and qualitative finishing details and very straight functions offer pilot watch aficionados the perfect balance between functionality and elegance on the wrist. Quality and aesthetics combine to make this a perfect and affordable addition to any watch lovers collection.
With four variants in the new collection, one is spoilt for choice.
The AL-525G4TS6 features a titanium-colored stainless steel 44 mm case contrasting with a matte dark grey dial displaying the typical oversized luminous hand-applied indexes and hands with a date window at 3 o’clock. The iconic red Alpina triangle is featured at 12 o’clock and on the second’s hand. The other three versions come in either stainless steel or rose gold-plated stainless steel featuring a matte dark blue or a matte white dial. The AL-525 automatic movement boasts a 38h power reserve and the timepiece is water-resistant up to 10 ATM/ 100m/ 330ft. The back case shows off the engraved logo of the brand.
The good news is that the new Startimer Pilot Automatic Collection is Stylish and trendy for gen next, this collection is set to fly off display cases even before they get there. …….A perfect Valentine’s Day gift, one that speaks volumes.
