A legendary aviation heritage
In the first 50 years of the past century Alpina was a renowned manufacturer and official supplier of military aviation watches to continental air forces. Early aviation pioneers had strict requirements: their instruments had to be extremely precise and provide ultimate shock resistance. In addition, Alpina pilot’s watches were mostly equipped with an anti-magnetic case, a high-contrast dial with oversized luminous numerals and luminous hands for instant readability


A generous 44 mm case
The clean design of the watch is inspired by Alpina’s past: a generous 44 mm, anti-reflective satin-finished stainless steel case, a grey sunray finished dial with oversized applied luminous numerals, an applied minutes ring and an anti-reflective sapphire crystal and the signature red Alpina-triangle on the central seconds hand are key features. For mechanical movement lovers there is also transparent case-back and a screw-in crown
