Thinking of an Alpina? Long delay in repairs if needed?
Hi. I have been thinking of purchasing a second Alpina. My first one was a disaster. It stopped working a week after the return policy. I sent it to repair in the USA. After 5 months they still could not get the parts in from Alpina - it took forever. In reading a review of the watch I am considering, one of the people posting mentioned to be aware of how hard it is to get repaired when living in the USA. IS THIS STILL AN ISSUE I should be aware of? I like the watch but cant afford to have anything go wrong with it and not get parts for nearly a half a year. You advice would be appreciated.

For a Citizen owned company that is unacceptable when there are so many great watches available.
Have you thought of buying from Gnomon? Usually they add 6 months to the warranty and do very good warranty work, though a PITA to send it back to Singapore. However DHL or International Priority Mail will get in there for a reasonable tariff.
