    couldn't decide which one though, cream/white dial or black/grey??

    I have been hesitating as well. Thinking the white date wheel just stands out even more on the dark dial so it may be an issue long term.

    Re: Alpina new models out

    Yup... that's also the reason why I'm leaning more towards the cream dial...

    Will let it simmer for a couple of weeks before deciding to pull the trigger, or not... too many pre-orders on hand!!

    Just in case, use MEM50 to take 50usd off 1000 if you get it from Jomashop... expires on 31st May 11am EST... 👍

    The blue version of the Alpiner 4 seems nice but have to see real pictures. As others mentioned, the brown with red strap seems a bit out of place. I already have a the Alpiner 4 GMT and this looks like the same case, type of dial and hands. Hopefully the date is a bit easier to read on these.

    At least they made it really strange looking by not even centering the date window between 3 and 4. Not sure what the designers and management were thinking.. The original has it a 3 o'clock.



    The crystal looks really cool but not sure if I can get past the date window position.

    There is also a new version of the GMT 4. Can't say I really like the blue and red on the dial and don't care for a business hours scale either. I do like the new strap which looks better than the cheapo alligator strap on the original.

    I really dig the glacier blue dial version of this watch. Once it hits grey, I'm going to give it a shot. Seems like a great watch in the making.

    I really wish they kept the date at 3! Not sure what the designer was drinking that day, but it should be banned

    Man, so many colors. Just baffling. Really want one of these though – been (im)patiently waiting for one of the previous versions to show up on the sales forum...
