    I really like the glacier blue Alpina 4 but wish it was 42mm and not 44. Also, the new blue faced smartwatch looks great, but I definitely won't be buying.

    ^^Yep.

    I feel the same about the size, although I had a peak at one of the Alpiner 4s today through a display case. Much like their other 40+mm watches, it seems to have nicely arched lugs to make up for some of the size and hug the wrist. While I didn't try it on, I usually stay 38-42mm, I actually think it would have sat well. It's bold, that's for sure, but that's also why it's tempting, very tempting. Love the look.

    I tried on the Alpina site when I saw it on instagram, but it jumps to Polish only site and I couldn't find anywhere to buy this, total fail, I take it as a sign to find an AD here in town and at least try on the blue on my tiny 6.5" wrist to see how it fits.

    I tried one on in an AD and it did wear moderately large on the wrist, slightly larger than expected. I think the thin bezel makes the dial appear larger and thus making the watch look bigger.

    Still, looked great and felt solid.

    Exactly how I felt when I got mine. Too big and the fairly empty space on the dial dos not help. 40-42 would have made for a very nice watch especially considering the price

    Loved mine in spite of the size. I admit I miss it each time I see a pic of one :(

    Have you tried on an ORIS Aquis 43mm? I wonder how that one wears ,the Alpiner 4 is in competition with the Aquis for my money

    Did you take a wrist shot? I took one in store to consider future purchase

    Thats a great deal, and if you choose to sell it you should be able to gain most of your money back which is the whole point of this hobby- wear and enjoy.

I paid around $380 US all in, and the seller originally purchased from Jomashop in January for around 650-680 US. He says he hadn't even worn it and it was a shame it didn't get any wrist time and that's why he was selling. Like I said, I only recently purchased a Hamilton Khaki Field in a 44 mm (Officer Version) due to reading up on it's merits and overall quality as a "beginners watch". I picked up the Alpina due to talking with a fellow collector who swears by the brand and believes at the price point, not many brands offer better quality. Here is the exact watch I bought,
