Alpina New Startimer Pilot Automatic

Alpina, one of the pioneers in professional pilot watches, introduces its new Startimer Pilot Automatic.

In the first 50 years of the past century, Alpina was a renowned manufacturer and official supplier of military aviation watches to continental air forces. Early aviation pioneers had strict requirements: their instruments had to be extremely precise and provide ultimate shock resistance. In addition, Alpina’s pilot watches were mostly equipped with an anti-magnetic case, highly contrasting dials with oversized luminous numerals and luminous hands for instant readability. Since its initial launch in 2011, the Startimer Pilot Collection has become the most successful collection of the Brand and one of the most recognizable professional pilot watches on the market.
The new Startimer Pilot Automatic maintains all the pilot features the Startimer Collection is known for. The combination of the excellent and qualitative finishing details and very straight functions offer pilot watch aficionados the perfect balance between functionality and elegance on the wrist.
Alpina introduces 4 new models to the Startimer Automatic Collection bearing different styles. The highlighted AL-525G4TS6 features a titanium-colored stainless steel 44 mm case contrasting with a matte dark grey dial displaying the typical oversized luminous hand-applied indexes and hands with a date window at 3 o’clock. The iconic red Alpina triangle is featured at 12 o’clock and on the seconds hand.
The other three versions come in either stainless steel or rose gold-plated stainless steel featuring a matte dark blue or a matte white dial. The AL-525 automatic movement boasts a 38h power reserve and the timepiece is water-resistant up to 10 ATM/ 100m/ 330ft. The back case shows off the engraved logo of the brand.
By positioning the new Startimer Pilot Automatic Collection under 900€ retail price, the red triangle Brand offers a new optimal design and quality Collection at a very decent entry-level price point.
