Alpina Startimer Pilot Quartz Chronograph Big Date

With specific reference to air travel, Alpina is introducing three new Startimer Pilot Quartz Chronograph Big Date designs and marking a new phase by adapting two leading complications in fine watchmaking to quartz technology: the chronograph and the large date.

Alpina’s iconic Startimer Pilot range offers timepieces are tailored to pilots, offering all that flying requires: resilience, readability and precision.

The three new Startimer Pilot Quartz Chronograph Big Date watches fall within this framework. Their large 44 mm cases feature a compax chronograph, accompanied by a large date at 6 o’clock.

This is a rare complication in fine watchmaking. It enables you to display the date on two separate discs, one for the tens, and the other for the units. The technique also allows for wide format windows that make reading the date as easy as can be.

With an autonomy of 4 years (48 months), each of the designs features an engraved case back, large hand-polished hands, luminescent Arabic numerals, 10 ATM (100 metres) of water resistance, a calfskin leather strap, two push buttons and a seconds hand finished with Alpina’s signature red triangle, inspired by the brand’s Alpine roots.

The first luxurious option features a rose gold-plated case that houses a radiant navy blue dial embellished with three black counters and rose gold plated hands. It comes with a brown calfskin leather strap with off-white topstitching.

The other two affordable editions feature steel cases. The first has a clandestine feel inspired by night flying and features a midnight blue dial with black counters, emphasized by a complementary black calfskin leather strap with off-white topstitching.

Setting the second steel version apart are three silver snailed counters that really stand out against the deep navy blue dial for improved readability.
