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.
