StarTimer Pilot Manufacture and StarTimer Pilot Automatic Chronograph “Sunray”

Professional pilot instruments meet luxury

 

As an addition to the iconic Alpina Startimer professional pilot watch collection the two new models, with sunray dial finishes and applied numerals and minutes ring, maintain all the professional pilot features the Alpina Startimer Collection is known for, while adding the luxury finishes normally found on elegant haute horlogerie watches. The combination of the two elements results in a perfect combination of professional pilot functionalities and elegant design for those who do not want to renounce to a fully professional pilot watch but want to wear and combine it with any suit and in any occasion.

The Startimer Pilot Manufacture with the Alpina in-house AL-710 Caliber

The Alpina Startimer Pilot Manufacture encases the fully in-house manufactured Alpina AL-710 Automatic Small Date Caliber, which can be admired though the transparent case-back of the watch. On the dial the two Alpina signatures can be immediately recognized, the red triangle at the base of the central seconds hand, as well as the in-house caliber signature, the small hands date in the 6 o’ clock position.

 

The scratch-resistant convex sapphire crystal, treated with an antireflective coating, gives a glare-free view of the striking anthracite sunray dial. The white, luminous hands contrast brilliantly with the dark-coloured dial, as do the hand-applied Arabic numerals and indexes.

The Startimer Pilot Automatic Chronograph with the Alpina AL-860 Caliber

The Alpina Startimer Pilot Automatic encases the Alpina AL-860 Automatic Chronograph movement with “Bi-Compax” 60 seconds and 30 minutes small counter layout. Like for the Startimer Pilot Manufacture the case-back is transparent and the 44mm case is 100m (300ft) water-resistant.

The “Bi-Compax” dial layout is ideal for time readability, a must for pilot watches, and the Sunray Dial and Appliques add an unmistakable luxury appeal.

Both watches are limited to 8888 pcs and the individually numbered timepieces are presented in an unique gift box featuring a Cessna Mustang model plane.
