Over 120 years ago, Alpina set out to make the perfect “tool watch”—a watch that was robust, reliable, precise, and ready to travel. And after years of design and development, they did it. By making watches that are water-resistant, shock-resistant, anti-magnetic and rust-proof, they set the standard for rugged durability in a timepiece.
With their new Alpina Startimer Automatic Heritage Pilot’s Watch, the Swiss company is going back to their roots with a watch modeled on the 1920s original aviator watches. A 44 millimeter case houses an automatic movement with a 38 hour power reserve. Press the push-button at 4 o’clock, and you’ll reveal the “officer’s case back,” allowing you to watch the time tick by through a transparent case back. It’s a beautiful, functional piece of machinery that you’ll be proud to pass down to your kids one day.
