The Startimer Classic Collection is an attractive range of contemporary timepieces, inspired by original Alpina Pilot watch designs from the 1920’s and 30’s. During the 1920’s and 30’s, Alpina Watch International was known as a specialized manufacturer and official supplier of military watches, utilized by pilots. These early aviation pioneers had strict requirements: instruments had to be extremely precise and provide ultimate shock resistance. Alpina takes these historical designs as a basis for the Startimer Classic collection of functional and contemporary timepieces, all equipped with a finely decorated silvered dial.
Launched in 2011, the Startimer Classic Collection is available with two different calibres: a three-hand automatic version with date (cal AL-525) in a stainless steel case and available with either blackened steel indexes or rose-gold plated indexes. Second version is the Chrono-Automatic (cal AL-860) with two chrono-counters, in a stainless steel case and available with either blackened steel indexes or rose-gold plated indexes. In addition, the Chrono-Automatic comes in a special vintage variation with a telemeter indicator on the dial.
