The lucky winner of the WorldTempus-Alpina contest of March 2018 is:
- Mr Gaynor Banks, from Leigh, United Kingdom
He won the Alpina Watches Webshop Replica Startimer Pilot Automatic watch, worth CHF 895.
In 2014, Alpina launched its Alpiner 4 set, according to a classic model from 1938 and integrating the “four fundamental features” that define a sports watch: anti-magnetism, shock resistance, water-resistance, and stain-resistance. This season, the brand adds two new associates to the Alpina 4 household, the Alpiner 4 Automatic along with the The Alpiner 4 Automatic, the initial simple, three-hand date version in the group, has a 44-mm stainless steel case plus a bidirectional rotating bezel which may be used for time events. The movement is Alpina’s automatic Caliber AL-525, with 26 jewels, a 28,800-vph frequency and 38-hour power book. Three dial colours are accessible — silvered, black, and Alpina’s hallmark “glacier blue,” which was reintroduced with this particular model. All of the Automatics include stitched leather straps, black or brown, with red lining.Like the very first Alpiner 4 GMT from 2014, the newest GMT Alpiner 4 GMT “Business Timer” is powered by the Sellita-based Alpina Caliber AL-550, that features automatic winding and also the same variety of stones, frequency, and power book as the movement at the automatic. This motion controls a GMT (second-time-zone) function which allows the user to set the local time by individually moving the hour hand in one-hour increments while the red, arrow-tipped 24-hour hand always displays the house time. The view has its nickname from its red-and-blue “Pepsi” GMT scale round the dialup, whose color scheme represents business-opening hours round the Earth, allowing a traveler to test at a glance if his house time zone is open for business. The steel case is 44 mm in diameter and contains a bidirectional turning bezel; the dials — available here in black or silver — are sunray-finished with employed luminous indices and luminous-coated nickel palms.
