    OP, I love your watches. I just got an Alpina today myself. Maybe I misunderstood but Alpina is not owned by Citizen. It is owned by Frederic Constant.

    Thanks. I am with you. Alpina is a fantastic brand that deserves to be known. It is certainly on par with Oris (another brand I love) yet gets less recognition. I am very impressed with this Alpina.

    The one good outcome from getting less recognition, you can get great price deals :)

    Hey Tony. I just ordered my first Alpina, the blue sunburst one like yours. Just curious, how large is your wrist, approximately? I was looking at a few different Alpinas and they all were 41mm and I didn't catch it that this one is 44 or 45mm (depending on where you get the specs). I have a 44mm Steinhart NavB-Uhr that is pretty much the max for my 7-1/4" wrist.

    Hi

    Congrats, it is wonderful watch. My wrist, at the position I wear my watch, which is not all the way down to the top of my hand, but a little higher, is 7 1/2". The watch you purchased is 44 mm (not the 45 some sites give). I think the most important thing to consider is what you are used to, if you are wearing larger watches, 44 and above, you will think anything less than 40 is too small, and vice versa, if you are used to smaller watches, you will think 44 is too big. So, being used to the Steinhart, you be should fine.

    Cheers
