The Alpina Startimer Pilot Quartz
Sober beauty from the house of Alpina
The Alpina Startimer Pilot Quartz is a piece that you can't stop looking at. It is one of those pieces of watchmaking art that is of a simple elegance that needs to be understood. But it is precisely this simple elegance that forces us to look at it constantly. But when you look at it alone, it will hardly stay that way.
With the Alpina Startimer Pilot Quartz, it is the creatives and as such one must call the manufacturers from the house of Alpina, succeeded in combining simple elegance and functionality. One would almost be tempted to say that the Startimer is a kind of understatement. If one didn't know that the term understatement would not be enough to explain the fineness, which was given by the stylistic clarity, also with this good piece. This clarity is mainly due to the appearance of the Alpina Startimer Pilot Quartz. The silver dial encloses the inner dial and, with its almost low height of 9.4 mm, including the sapphire crystal glass cut by Alpina, has an almost flat simplicity that dispenses with any unnecessary detail.
Perfectly set nuances
The black numerals represent a perfectly staged nuance that does not detract from the intended simple elegance. The functionality of the Alpina Startimer Pilot Quartz includes the display of hours, minutes, seconds and the right-centred date display. The battery, hidden under the hand-screwed and stainless steel base, has a life of 25 months, which enjoys special protection due to the usual waterproof workmanship. If one did not know that the Alpina Startimer Pilot quartz from Alpina already exists, one would have to invent it.
