In the first half of the last century Alpina was the official supplier for military aviation watches to continental air forces and since then the brand has carried on the tradition of manufacturing reliable and precise pilot timepieces.
Pilots have the strictest requirements when it comes to their instruments, and the same applies to their watches, and all Alpina pilot’s watches feature precision, shock-resistance or anti-magnetic cases. The new Startimer Pilot Quartz line up features watches with practical functions including oversized indexes and luminous treatment on the hands and the highly color-contrasted dials.
The 42mm case is available in two styles, either stainless steel or black PVD-treated stainless steel. The case is smaller than the usual 44mm pilot watches’ cases making it equally ideal for daily wear. These versions are available with different types of strap, either nylon or stainless-steel bracelets. Prices start at CHF 495 for the Startimer Pilot Quartz.
