    Alpina Alpiner?

    Opinions? Thoughts? Is there such a thing as a men's quartz Alpina Alpiner?

    Thanks!

    I love the designs but they are all too big.

    Agreed. They're fantastic, just too damn large.

    That's surprising - isn't the Alpiner 41.5 or 42mm?

    I had the Alpina Alpiner Chronograph on a bracelet and loved it. It was 41.5mm and I didn't think it was too big. I had the black dial version but secretly lusted after the blue dial. The only reason I sold mine was to consolidate the collection a bit.

    Whoops, you're right. I was referring to the Alpiner 4 series, which are all 44mm

    They are but wear really big. I usually can pull off a 41 to 42 on my 6.5" wrist but I bought an alpiner last year and had to return it. Looked like a dinner plate on my wrist. I actually have a Glycine Incursore III and a CW C11 at 42mm and 44mm that I pull off better than the alpiner. I wish they would make a reasonable sized watch as their designs are very clean.

    The Alpina looks great but I agree it is just a little too big.

    Just found a pic of the alpiner on my wrist. I think the long flat lugs and big plain dial make it look bigger than it is.

    Compared to 2 of my largest watches my CW C11 which is 42mm dial and 53mm L2L and my Hamilton khaki navy sub which is 42mm dial with a 52mm L2L. But their lugs curve a little more around the wrist.

    But if your wrists are normal size unlike my dainty ones lol, go for it. Again I regretted returning it. It was a great looking watch.
