    Alpina Startimer

    I got this from Gnomon watches the other day and I'm very impressed with it. Swiss made with anti reflective sapphire crystal and Alpina/FC modified SW200. It's quite large at 44mm but wears comfortably on my 7.25 inch wrist. The strap is leather with a suede type feel to the outer layer and an Alpina signed tang buckle. The watch is titanium coloured stainless steel and the tang buckle matches. Legibility on this is excellent and there is lume on every marker as well as the minute and hour hands and the numerals and markers are framed and coated with what looks like glass as it reflects light. The Startimer was released by Alpina at the 2017 Basel Fair.


    The details on the watch are excellent and I reckon these are better than current IWC offerings at three to four times the price. There is a serious IWC look to the Startimer but it is meant to be a pilots watch and IWC don't have copyright on the Mark design. Alpina have a long military heritage and provided watches to the military in WWII, so in my eyes, the Startimer is a nod to their heritage.

    Its on my radar as well. I quite like the change of markers at 12,3,6, 9 from the old models. Enjoy.

    I love my Startimers. They ooze quality and are finished exceptionally well. There's a lot of details that are on par with the IWCs. Especially given the price point it's awesome value. I do like your 2017 version. Meanwhile i still hang onto my 2 past generation's chronographs...
