Alpina, anyone? Then, please show it…
Awesome regulator..:-!:-!.. I personally think that the brand is great!!! The watches are a class above the rest and at fair prices, my Saliing Extreme has pretty much made it really difficult for me to want to wear anything else.. their attention to details, cases, movements, make them really awesome and make me smile everytime I see mine... Hope you're enjoying your Alpina as I am:-d
The limited edition (50 pcs) has to have the green paint on the second, yours is red painted. Hm.
I love this watch.
Actually the one above is also limited to 8888 watches and yes the Green horlogerie-suisse LE is 50 pieces
Yep, but you can't possible think that number is a "limited". With 8888 pcs you can populated a little town or make you own private army of idiots.
I bought the Aviation Autmatic vesion - same as the above, found it to be much closer to the IWC MARK XVII, mine is also 8888 series, so hey, here I am.
I know nothing about the quality of their in-house movement they do with the Manufacture so didn't want to take any chances.
By the waty the green 50 pcs version is the Manufacture, having the date at 6'oclock
Really? But that riveted strap is not the original this watch usually comes with and anyway must come mounted upside down due to the Alpina clasp which opens on one side.
What strap is that cause looks really nice?! (And the Laco doesn't stand a chance btw, hahaha.)
I wanted to buy this green Manufacture but when I finally asked swisshorologerie.com (they sel this one for 2011 CHF) what is the difference between this one and the red version, I got only evasive answers so I guess none apart the colour..
Well, I opted for the red Manufacture version which I found at a resonable price, but lately I was under impression that the date at six o'clock reminds me to much of this (see below) MARK X 1944 so I've changed my mind and I purchased the MARK XVII only (I mean the Startimer Pilot). LOL. Now I think it was a bad move and want to send it back and get the Manufacture, dam it looks nice.
Wear it in good health
