This year, iconic Startimer collection has been enriched by several new models. Faithful to its aviation history, Alpina Watches Bracelet Replica 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 to these creations, Alpina 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.
The movement, which probably remains unchanged by the first bit from two years ago and hence will likely remain hidden behind a solid steel case-back, is a Sellita SW-200 automatic base movement that offers a rather brief 38-hour-long power book. Alpina Watches Review Replica has added into it what will probably stay an in-house-made module, so which allows for your skipping setting of this local time, separate from the GMT and moments indication. This way, when you’re traveling, you can adjust just the hour hand at one-hour increments, without messing up all other indications.What’s new for your Alpina Alpiner 4 GMT Business Timer is exactly what Alpina officially refers to as a Pepsi colorway — a term generally used for watches using a red-blue colored bezel or flange ring, but many frequently linked to the Rolex GMT-Master II (hands-on here). Interestingly, Alpina has painted red the 9-17 segment, to highlight normally accepted business hours — which are proudly not at all adhered to by anybody on the aBlogtoWatch group, I can promise you.Two models will debut the Alpina Alpiner 4 GMT Business Timer, a black and a silver plated variant — kudos into Alpina for fitting the colours of this date discs to the various dial colors, admittedly a pet peeve of ours (and pretty much each experienced watch enthusiast on earth). One thing the official communication fails to enlighten us about is why the dial now says “Ice Legacy – Believe – Preserve – Transmit” — so that I went through the problem of Googling it and learned that two polar explorers, Borge Ousland and Vincent Colliard are walking 20 glaciers to “think, preserve, transmit the glaciers and our ancestral ice to future generations.”

Maybe best known for their own Seastrong diver’s collection and their Startimer pilot’s watches, Alpina Watches Shop Replica have, in recent decades, branched out by producing their own manufacture calibers in addition to their first smartwatch. But, Alpina’s core strength remains their ability to produce high-quality casual and sports watches at a lot more accessible prices than most of their larger Swiss relatives. We have covered Alpina’s outgoing Startimer pilot’s watch collection before right here, and earlier this year Alpina released an updated Startimer collection, the Alpina Startimer Pilot Automatic Al-525 watch, a 44mm tool watch that people proceed hands-on with here.Taking even a brief look at the Startimer Automatic, it is clear to see that Alpina are tipping their hats into some of the great army and pilot’s watches previously. On the dial, oversized applied luminous amounts for hour markers alternative with big rectangular luminous indices at twelve, three, six, and nine that all sit inside of a printed ring graduated at one-minute periods and labeled in five-minute increments. Taken together, the dial elements very purposefully supply the aviation instrument texture. The dial itself, and indeed the opinion, are available in four different variations; black, white, white with golden accents, and also a sort of dark grey. A red rectangle, a Alpina signature, sits prominently in the top indicating the sixty/zero moments position.
