    Help to identify old Alpina watch and movement

    Hi, I was lucky to find this probably 60's Alpina from online auction.
    Does anyone know what model, movement and caliber this is?
    It says "Alpina", "17 jewels" and "Swiss".
    It's running but might need service. Still I think I made quite a deal as I paid only 35 euros for it... ?

    Hi it's a movement from this AS family

    bidfun-db Archive: Watch Movements: AS 2060

    To determine the exact movement number you should check the frequency of the movement. :)

    Great, Thank you!
    So what should I think of these AS movements? Quite good I suppose as Fortis, Eterna and Jaeger-Le Coultre have also used those..?

    It seems that it isn't from 2060 -family. I found AS logo and "1880" marked on the movement. What do you know/say/think about that?

    The Alpinas are reliable. Yours could have been from the "Standard" family but I'm not 100% sure. I think the hands might have been replaced. Nonetheless, great buy at that price

    Similar AS families. They look quite the same with some minor differences. :D

    The AS 1880 is just an earlier version of the Cal. AS 2060:
