    Picture Alpha pilot titanium

    Hi everyone

    Here are some pics of my recently acquired ALPHA PILOT TITANIUM

    It's a rather strange watch, which you can call "military" or "pilot watch".
    I'm not sure it has been inspired from an existing model

    Anyway, here it is.

    It's a big watch (44mm diameter) but very LIGHT (thanks to Titanium, which feels warm on the wrist)
    It's what ALPHA calls "multifunctions".
    It looks like a chrono, but you know, it's not
    (don't get me wrong, I know what I buy, Alpha doesn't try to make you think it's a chrono)

    The pusher at 2 o'clock is for the month (dial à 12) and it's a very advanced technology used there, called "FingerTouch™" which means you only have to push with your finger once a month to get the arrow moving (because when we went from September to October, nothing occured on the dial

    Now, the pusher at 4 o'clock allows you to change the MAIN FEATURE of this watch, we now take a look at the 9h dial (I was really wondering what was that dial until I received the watch)
    THE YEAR Oooooooooh yeah

    This magnificient info is brought to you by this (almost) magical two-info dial (two different years marked at one place), again with the newly developped "FingerTouch™" technology

    Man, I really love those "multifunctions"

    Anyway, I really like the look of this watch (yes, I know, I like strange watches) and Titanium is new to me, so I'm really pleased in the end.

    I'm glad you cleared that up about the dials. I was scratching my head wondering what that one at 9'oclock did. Nice pics and great review.

    :thanks Timecacher

    Apart the complete uselessness of this subdial, it's quite a funny watch, and the overall quality is quite good

    I'm quite pleased with Titanium, by the way. I usually prefer to "feel" my watch, but this light material is quite agreable, really

    Watches with fixed hands so they are guaranteed to be 100% accurate twice a day
