    I had one but deleted it. I just know i can't do 44 and buying the Alpina was a confirmation of it. I am much better suited anywhere from 39 to 42

    Yea I know what you mean. Can you believe I was considering an ORIS LE Col Moschin 49 mm at one point? :D

    The Alpiner 4 in 42mm case with a slightly wider bezel and 300M water resistance would make it a perfect watch for me. But as it is right now, I still love its unique dial look.

    Google "watch compass bezel" and you should find more information.

    I love all of the new styles Alpina is coming out with, but they can't seem to get thier sizes right. Everything is too large for the styles (with the exception of the aviation pieces). I own an alpiner chrono and at 41.5, it still fits very large for the size - it just looks a little off. I think if they can dial in thier proportions, nothing on the market could beat these

    Do me a favor and Google the word "lazy".

    That question about the bezel is asked often. I was just trying to be helpful and pointing out what the bezel was for. Next time, let me go out of my way and explain something that has been explained many times before.

    Googling "alpina alpiner watch bezel" would have given you the explanation as well. However, I should have noted your closing line about not being smart so the blame is on me..

    Re: Alpina new models out

    It sounds like you ordered from Alpina directly? I am guessing it will take a while before these start showing up at grey market dealers but you will be able to enjoy it long before. 42mm seems like the perfect size for this watch.
