Die Alpina Startimer Pilot Heritage Automatic GMT
THE watch for the man
At a time when the predicate "unisex" is used almost without limits, MAN can look forward to a men's watch that has anything but the predicate used above. If a watch on this planet deserves to be called a watch for the man, it is this one. Despite the fact that it also has certain round nuances in its design. However, if you consider the relative height of 40.75 mm, it becomes clear here at the latest that this is a tool that was created for the man and only for the man.
Robustness and balanced design
The Alpina Startimer Pilot Heritage Automatic GMT has two attributes: balance and design. The polished and hand-ground stainless steel case with the distinctive screw-down crown leaves no doubt as to who this masterpiece was made for. The AL-555 calibre, which controls the hour, second and date display, has been fitted into this masculine timeless movement. The whole thing under the well-known sapphire crystal, also hand-cut by Alpina, which presents itself to the observer in this model with a slight curvature. The Alpina creative team carefully chose the slightly smaller diameter of just 40.75 mm. Which was considered a wise decision.
The Alpina Startimer Pilot Heritage Automatic GMT
Once again, this watch is proof that a men's watch, which should have the necessary robustness and at the same time have a certain degree of balance, is an exception. This exception is also confirmed by the straight lines, the perfectly chosen shimmering blue colouring and the screw-down crown, which in addition to the soft calfskin leather bracelet, also joins together to form a harmonious whole. The Alpina Startimer Pilot Heritage Automatic GMT is clearly the best example of a watch for men!
