A true reference brand in the field of aviation, Alpina was official supplier of military watches to the pilots of the continental air forces during the first half of the 20th century. Inspired by these legendary models, its Startimer Pilot collection launched in 2011 quickly established itself as an authentic modern-day professional instrument, while remaining true to the original requirements of aviation pioneers: precision and extreme shock resistance, as well as impeccable legibility and a non-magnetic case. The new Startimer Pilot Automatic presented today is no exception. At the heart of a 44 mm case available in various executions beats an automatic calibre oscillating at 4 Hz to ensure optimal precision. On the dial, the iconic Alpina red triangle on the central sweep-seconds hand and at 12 o’clock enliven the highly readable overall display enhanced by luminescent oversized hands.
