    Assuming that is the 44mm startimer, the lug to lug is 53mm. Startimers have curved lugs though so that helps.

    Generally I find the Alpina watches to be of a style that pleases. Unfortunately, they are quite large and my preference is 40mm >. I found this on the sales forum, while it's a quartz the 38mm size is a perfect fit. Soon as the wife sees this one I'll no longer own it, it will reside on her wrist.

    Really like that watch. It fits you well. Nice purchase.

    • Swiss Made
    • Automatic
    • 28,800 bph movement
    • Exhibition case back
    • Date window
    • At least 42mm case diameter
    • 22mm lug width (to share various natos, bands and bracelets with my other watches)
    • Center sweep seconds hand
    • Screw down crown

    The Alpina Startimer Pilot Automatic 44mm meets all of these specs, at a fair price, and looks beautiful with its grey sunburst dial and modern sporty take on the pilot watch concept. So far, I am impressed and I'll definitely consider the Alpina brand again in the future.

    Here is my Startimer while on a snowy Christmas Day walk near Denver, Colorado:

    Thank you.

    I like this watch more and more every day. I synchronized it to Time.is - exact time, any time zone 4 days ago, and at this moment it is only 1 second slow. I had no idea it would be this accurate. I was used to -8 seconds/day with my Seiko SKX007. A steel mesh bracelet and a brown leather strap are incoming from strapcode. I will probably post pics once I get those.
