This hand-wound New style alpina pilot heritage automatic replica watch is powered by Alpina AL-435 caliber (Unitas 6498 base). The case back is engraved with the Limited Edition number. There are 1883 editions produced for this model. What is the significance of 1883? It is in the honor of Gottlieb Hauser, who founded Alpina exactly 130 years ago.
With its retro-inspired, limited edition alpina pilot heritage automatic replica watch, the 130-year-old watch brand pays tribute to its original military and pilots watches from the ’20s and ’30s with the large 50mm case size, vintage lume, and hinged case back. The massive crown is a pleasure to wind and does not dig into the wrist. The hunter case back release button is located at 4 o’clock.
A newly designed metal bracelet alpina startimer pilot manufacture limited edition replica watch is available too, and fits on all versions.The clean design of this timepiece was clearly inspired by Alpina’s past: a generous 44 mm, anti-reflective satin-finished 18K Rose Gold case, mat black dial with oversized white luminous numerals, a glare-free sapphire crystal and a signaturered Alpina-triangle on the second hand are the key features. To further improve user-friendliness and comfort, an original solution was found to secure the leather strap: it closes on the front side of the wrist, not on the reverse or lower sides, hereby resembling the vintage leather straps of the past.
