Greetings! I am a collector from Montana, and have the opportunity to purchase a brand new re-issue of the classic German Navy model Alpina "Kriegsmarine" redone with what seems to be a snappy automatic in-house movement for $570.99. It retails for $2,795.
I'm curious if any of you have any experience with this brand, as this would be my first Alpina. I've done some research, and the brand has a wonderful history going back to 1883, in Geneva, Switzerland. Is there anything you can tell me about these movements? Specifically what movement is in this model of Kriegsmarine. Amazon just lists it as "Automatic"... which really doesn't give me a good look at it. I don't know if it's hacking, etc. And the details on how many and what type of jewels might be in this particular model. Thank you.
