Startimer Pilot Chronograph Quartz

A new Chronograph makes its way to the Startimer Collection, the ultimate pilot line from Alpina. Inspired by previous models, this novelty remains faithful to the Startimer design codes that define a pilot watch.

 

A pilot legacy

In addition to being an Alpinist brand and the original creator of the modern sports watch, Alpina has a rich history in aviation. 50 years ago, Alpina was the official supplier for military aviation watches to continental air forces and since then the brand has continued to honor this legacy.

A pilot’s watch

To strengthen the ties with this historical legacy, the brand welcomed in 2017 champion air racer, Mike Goulian as their new ambassador, and formed a new collaboration as the Official Time Keeper of Team Goulian in the Red Bull Air Race World Championships.

This line introduces five new models sporting three different styles. The first is available in a sunray navy blue dial with a matching blue nylon strap or a stainless steel bracelet. The second showcases a creamy beige dial also with a choice of either blue nylon strap or a stainless-steel bracelet. Finally, the third is an all-black version for the more daring pilots. All three have a 42mm case with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and a specially engraved case-back with the Alpina logo. Each dial is decorated with white or blue luminous indexes and hand-polished hands. Three counters were placed at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock displaying the small seconds counter, the 30-minute counter and days of the week respectively. A discrete date window was added at 4 o’clock to complete the functionalities.

Alpina continues to celebrate its aviation historical connection not through the iconic Startimer collection but also by welcoming an ambassador who truly embodies the line’s philosophy.
