    Re: Alpina new models out

    I like that a lot. Guessing the case is the standard Alpiner 4, looks to be and same size. Nice sunray dial, well placed and properly colored date wheel, really like that series' handset. The bezel is very crisp, the action will be great. I like the splash of red at the zero pip. You get that little blast, the logo counterweight, and the "4" tied together. Then picked up on the strap edge (and I'm guessing underbelly). I'd like it to have a display back as the in house movement is very nicely done. But I'm guessing solid to help with the anti-magnetic component of the "4" motif.

    This particular model doesn't have the in-house movement. Those are distinguished by the date subdial at 6:00. This model uses a modified Sellita movement.

    Ah, yes. Right. Nothing wrong with that Sellita either.

    Looks nice. Can't decide about the bezel but the rest of the watch is attractive.

    They make beautiful watches.

    That one doesn't do it for me.
    It seems it's not sure if it wants to be a business watch or a sport watch.
    44 seems pretty large for most wrists as well.
    Just giving an honest opinion. Not trying to be a troll. I think Alpina is a quality watch.

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

    will see how it looks in real life agree w the 44 mm , 2 mm less would have been best for me but I wanted to give it a shot.
    this forum is full of the Black Bay is the best thing since sliced bread at 3K with workhorse and I fail to see how this Alpina if you go grey is remotely any less of a contender especially at a fourth the price. stay tuned for pics when it shows up.
