2017 NOVELTY – STARTIMER PILOT QUARTZ
July 2017, Geneva – Following the Baselworld’s launch of the Startimer Pilot Automatic, Alpina continues its strong focus on pilot’s watches with the latest Startimer Pilot Quartz.
Alpina has been, for many decades, a reference in professional pilot watches. In the first 50 years 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.
A Pilot-Approved Watch
Pilots have the strictest requirements when it comes to their instruments, the same can be said about their watches. This is why Alpina has continuously worked to provide them with the most dependable timepieces, offering characteristics such as ultimate precision, shock-resistance or anti-magnetic cases.
The five new Startimer Pilot Quartz mix watchmaking excellence with practical functions, providing the ideal combination between practicality and craftsmanship. With these new versions, Alpina continues to respect the pilot watch and its key characteristics such as the oversized indexes and luminous treatment on the hands and the highly color-contrasted dials; major features that define a pilot’s watch and provide optimal readability. 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 turning it into the perfect watch for daily wear. These versions are available with different types of strap, either nylon or stainless steel bracelets.
Alpina remains a strong name in the pilot watch segment and with prices starting at 495 CHF for the Startimer Pilot Quartz, it dictates the trend for affordable high-end watches.
