New York, NY (November 7, 2017) – Alpina is pleased to unveil a limited edition timepiece in celebration of their partnership with champion aviator and air show superstar, Michael Goulian.
This past year, Alpina announced its partnership with Michael Goulian, one of the world’s most talented aerial demonstration pilots, to emphasize the brand’s passion for sport inspired watches in the air category.
Drawing inspiration from the Startimer Pilot Automatic collection, this limited edition timepiece maintains all the desired pilot features as well as excellence and qualitative finishing details.
With a titanium-colored stainless steel 44 mm case contrasting with a matte dark blue dial, it displays the typical oversized luminous hand-applied indexes and hands with a date window at 3 o’clock. The timepiece features a black genuine leather strap as well as a case back engraved with the signature of the aviator himself with his race team name “99MG”.
The piece, upon purchase, is presented in a special edition box alongside a miniature model of Michael Goulian’s Red Bull Air Race World Championship competition airplane.
The brand’s collaboration with Michael Goulian has developed with involvement in the 2017 Redbull Air Race World Championship events around the world, as Official Team Partner and in various activations at the most distinguished air shows in the United States.
“We are pleased to create a dedicated timepiece for a special member of the Alpina family,” says Morgane Leynaud, Marketing Manager, Alpina Watches. “Michael and his talents embody the Alpinist lifestyle and values, and truly represent our brand in the category of pilot watches.”
“I’m truly touched and honored that Alpina has worked with me to create a timepiece that embodies the same virtues as our Red Bull Air Race Team #99. I’m very proud to be able to wear this watch and I’m sure aviation enthusiasts of all types will love this watch as much as I do”, says Michael Goulian.
Available in North America and the Caribbean, the timepiece is limited to 188 pieces and retails for $1,150 at select authorized retailers and AlpinaWatches.com.
