Welp, my Al 525 just died. It had powered down I my watch box, but earlier than 30 hours reserve. I hand wound it a shake and after observing it running, put it back in the box. I look at it yesterday before bed and it stopped again, frozen 15 minutes after the last time I set it. I check that it is wound, it is and reset time. Check it this morning and it died right after i put it down. Reset and put it on. I check before I leave the house and it's dead again. Nice. Not even 4 months old.
Warranty? Well u dunno because Alpina refuses to answer my question if the dealer was an AD or not.
Time to drop in a brand new SW200 onto a 4 month old watch.
