Realizing the great value that Alpha Watch brings to the watch community, We've teamed up with Alpha Watch China to be the first North American distributor of the Alpha Watch brand. Our mission is not to simply import and resell the brand but to enhance Alpha Watch by having unique features and styling queues not available anywhere else.

Features such as clear case backs on the Paul Newman model, a freshened up design on the 24 hour PNR model and unique decorated rotors on our automatics with many more ideas in the works!

Also, in keeping with the Alpha Watch tradition, we will not compromise on customer service. Our watches will be covered by the standard one-year warranty as well as an additional benefit- If you have a problem within the first 30 days of your purchase, due to mechanical malfunction, we will replace your watch with the same model.

From a design standpoint, we would love to hear about what you'd like to see on your wrist in the future. Call it a wish list of sorts!

Our first order of stock is currently in production, our website is under construction, but we are very much in business to serve you! Many thanks to all. We are looking forward to a very prosperous year. You'll be hearing from Chris (CMY) shortly. he's the marketing guru behind the Alpha brand as well as the co-founder of Alpha Watch USA.

Cheers,

Mark

Hi Mark: First on my wish list: a retro-fit clear caseback that previous purchasers of the Alpha Paul Newman can buy to put on the ones we're already bought!

That would be soooooooooooooo appreciated!

Best regards, and Welcome to WUS!

We thought that was a pretty good idea as well- which is why they are already on the way. :-!

Wow! My thanks!

And...if you're gonna be that responsive, then second on my wish list is: ship USPS -- NOT FedEx or UPS -- to Canada.

Fedex or UPS means an immediate and certain extra $60-70 dollar hit (roughly $35 for shipping and roughly the same for "brokerage fees") on watches purchased from the States.

The duty is no issue, really, on an affordable watch, but "brokerage fees" and shipping charges over $30 makes affordables far less affordable.

EMS/USPS is the way to go for Canadian sales.

...and why pay attention to my request?

I've purchased 35+ watches since January 1st. :) Two were from US sellers who used FedEx or UPS...the first two.

Just sayin'

Heh, I'll probably just order an entire new one from them as my tachy scale is crooked on my PN (it's always surprised me that noone called me out on that from my pics). Displayback makes me so happy.

Since the majority of our models will have unique features, the pricing will be a bit higher reflecting the additional cost to produce them. For example This model will sell for 69.99 USD. CONUS shipping via USPS Priority Mail is $5.95 USD.

so, will you carry the entire line of Alpha-Asia, some of the line or will you have an entirely new line that Alpha-Asia will not have?

Since you mentioned the PN, I'm guessing a bit of both?

Our line will be based on the current Alpha lineup with features unique to Alpha Watch USA. We are starting off with the most popular models such as the PN, Sub, PNR, GMT and Daytona. more models will come on as we gain momentum. Keep in mind, we are re-designing most (if not all) of the Alpha watch models we will stock. To us, it's not about simply picking up a line and reselling it, we are re-creating the Alpha brand for the North American market and beyond.

I'd love to see an Alpha MilSub! My Alpha sub's great, but it would just stand out so much more if it had sword hands.
