    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..

    I did.
    But it's already in grey market like Joma. They had some. Obviously one buys at his own risk when using grey market.

    Must be a cultural thing.
    Your choice of words came off as condescending.
    Probably my interpretation. It seems you didn't intend your message to come of that way? My apologies.

    My question was genuine. I really didn't understand the purpose of that bezel. I took your advice and googled it. Now I get it.



    Please excuse spelling errors...I'm not very smart.

    I didn't mean to be condescending. If I meant to be, it would be a lot more obvious.

    No hard feelings, glad to hear you found the information you were looking for.

    Maybe he is a bit sensitive or had a bad day or different perspective/culture ? Some days my mind plays tricks on me and overreact to people's comments :) looking back after wards I feel like I was silly :)

    Best to move forward an return to regular thread programming :)

    Culture and background plays a big role in communication especially in electronic form when one doesn't get the benefit of seeing the other person's behavior and facial expression.
    When I first came to the US it took some time to adapt to the communication style and culture.
    But when in doubt on line, best not to assume the other guy is out to get you :) or means bad... and take the high road when arguments arise.


    :)

    Where are you from btw

    Re: Alpina new models out

    I was in the North Maine Woods last week on a hunting trip. I felt mt Alpina GMT might be a bit big and get in the way of some "hunting chores" so I wore my Seiko Alpinist which has a rotating inner 360˚ rehaut for the same purpose. Worked well, very handy.

    Of course my guide had a brass lapel compass....
