Alpina’s new Startimer Pilot Collection includes a range of timepieces inspired by original Alpina designs used by pilots during the 1920s and 30s. The collection includes four models, each measuring 44mm in diameter: three variations offering time and date, including two with a manufacture movements, and a two-register chronograph.

Update: Pricing information added.
The new collection starts with a basic three-hand automatic with date at 3 o’clock. Next in line is the timepiece with in-house developed and produced automatic caliber AL-710, featuring three centrally-mounted hands plus an off-center date hand at 6 o’clock.
In-house caliber AL-950 powers the Startimer Pilot Regulator. Last but not least, the new range includes a well-balanced two-register automatic chronograph (cal. AL-860).
The cases are satin-finished stainless steel with matte-black dials and glare-free sapphire crystals. The seconds hands bear the signature red Alpina-triangle. All models are available with leather strap or metal bracelet.
Alpina Startimer Pilot timepieces will be presented with a Cessna Citation Mustang scale model in the livery of PrivatAir, a Geneva-based international aviation group with bases in Zurich, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Munich, Amsterdam and Bahrain.
