    Do You Know this ALPINA ?

    Last month I picked this up from TimeTitans in NYC. Saw it on line and a "have to have that" impulse over-ruled my logic brain, party pooper side. Was in NYC for business, met Rich after talking to him, negotiated a great price...So, I can't find anything about it on line except that it was a novelty issue in 2003. I've pinged Alpina customer service, but after asking for another picture of the watch--serial number included--they've gone dark.

    I truly love it, grabbed my attention immediately since it checked all my boxes--GMT, Day/NIght chapter ring, Chronograph, and the askew numbers around the dial give it character. Lumes like a monster, too ! And a see through case back. I've seen the brand for years in Hong Kong while on business. They don't get enough respect!

    Any guidance and insight would be greatly appreciated ! New comer to the forum....

    I see these old Startimers online every so often, many times in new old stock condition. Frederique Constant acquired Alpina in 2002, so these were some of the first of the revived Alpina lines. I like these early 2000s Alpinas since they are reasonably sized, whereas around the beginning of this decade they grew in diameter to 44mm and above, though their design language started to become more consistent.

    A Google search brought up a number of references...including a panda colorway.
