To pilot or not to pilot - that is not the question.

To be honest. It makes absolutely no difference whether you are a pilot or not. This perfect piece of watchmaking art is as attractive as it is inspiring. To pilots and people of other professions alike. As with all beautiful timepieces from this company, this one also has a hand-brushed sapphire crystal. It goes without saying that it has an anti-reflective coating. Underneath, everything that makes up a pilot's chronograph has been implemented in the usual skilful way. From the display of the hours and seconds to the tenth of a second, you will find everything that makes a pilot's heart beat faster. Including the tenths of a second and the extra-large window for the date, which is placed at the bottom-centre. The dark blue dial, which glows in functional green at night, fits perfectly into the symbiotic fabric of the chronograph.

Quartz-controlled precision

The Alpina Startimer Pilot Chronograph is simply a chronograph that could not be better designed and constructed. Water resistance and shock resistance round off this precision-controlled work of art, as does the strap, which is made of brown cowhide leather. With this particular example of a chronograph, you begin to understand once again that once you become a "believer" in Alpina chronographs, you will always remain one. Unless someone sets out to surpass Swiss perfection.
