Alpina Worldtimer Manufacture

Swiss watch brand Alpina enhances its Aviation collection with the new Worldtimer model developed in close collaboration with Cessna Aircraft and PrivatAir. The Worldtimer model from Alpina features a rotating ring with the names of 24 cities inscribed on it. A second rotating ring has 24-hour markers.

This is used to display time in different time zones. Local time is shown by a standard hour and minute hand. The Alpina Worldtimer has a mechanical automatic caliber AL-718 with 26 jewels and has a 48-hour power reserve.

The watch is water resistant to 10 ATM. The watch is finished off with a black leather crocodile strap. The front and the back of the watch are covered with sapphire crystal.

Developed in-house, the Worldtimer is based on the AL-710 caliber used in the Startimer Manufacture. The new Worldtimer caliber (AL-718) ensures easy adjustment of all functions, through a single crown.

The Alpina Startimer Worldtimer will be produced in a limited edition of 8’888 pieces and they will be presented in a dedicated, luxurious packaging, alongside a Cessna Citation Mustang scale model in PrivatAir livery.
