They look very nice. Hope someone does have one and can post a pix as it interests me as well.

I really like the look of this Alpina. I own the previous model and love it.
What's on my wrist these days...
Looking for something on this as well! I would love to hear feedback
Someone is looking to trade this one. Not a bad watch but looks too much like an IWC.

I haven't tried the chronos, but I have tried the 44mm Alpina Startimers (3-hands). They're big, but flat, at least. I have 6.75" wrist and the flat 3-hand version is about as big as I'd ever wear. It's a statement for sure in the style of "big pilot," but I don't like it. Any thicker with a 7750-based chrono may look ridiculous on me!
I'd recommend looking at Hamilton Khaki 38-40mm chronos instead if you like that style of pilot or field chronos. You can find those hammies for under $600 on the grey market.
I think IWC look boring compared to Alpina. I really don’t get the comparison.
1. My posts are not shilling other people's stuff.
2. I own everything that I post and paid for it with my own money.
3. My opinions are not influenced by any form of compensation.
It's like when you look at Submariner, and it seems boring because of so many other companies copied the look. Since 1990' IWC is synonymous with that kind of watch, when I think Alpina Chrono I think swirly Tachymeter and Telemeter scale on the outside of minute track.
This is mine. I bought it a week and a bit ago when a jeweller was closing down for half retail price. I don’t think it matters that it “looks like an IWC” because it is an old brand which was making pilot watches before 1939, even taking into account that the brand fell into administration for a year or so before being resurrected by FC.
