Alpina Startimer Pilot Manufacture – Limited Edition for Horlogerie-Suisse Forum
The Swiss/French watch discussion Horlogerie-Suisse worked together with Alpina Watches to make a restricted version of only 50 pieces, in festival of their tenth commemoration. The Alpina Startimer Pilot Manufacture, yes surely like the name as of now demonstrates, is outfitted with an in-house planned and fabricated movement.
It can be purchased, carefully online at Horlogerie Suisse, for an Anniversary Price 2001-2011 of CHF 2011.00. Simply think about this, a fresh out of the plastic new watch with a production development, for only 2011 Swiss Francs. Since seems like a flat out deal and to be straightforward, it is. We heard there are a couple left…
Compared to the ‘normal’ Alpina Startimer Manufacture, the stabilizer of the second hand is presently green in stead of red. The name of the gathering is additionally engraved for the situation back.
The in-house development, type AL710, can be seen though the sapphire gem for the situation back. This movement features a programmed winding system fusing Alpina’s brand name rotor; a salute to the creators (Straub & Co.) of Alpina’s first programmed type of 1945, the 582.
The movement’s plate shows “AL 950/1” which is the development reference of another Alpina Startimer, the Manufacture Regulator. Alpina’s site doesn’t shed all the more light on this, anyway dependent on the reality the two watches (Alpina Startimer Pilot Manufacture and the Alpina Startimer Manufacture Regulator) share a similar pointer date at 6 o’clock, we accept these developments (AL-710 and AL-950) are practically comparable in details and possibly share the equivalent plate.
The balance is held set up by an equilibrium connect in stead of an equilibrium cockerel, which makes it more strong. Furthermore we see blue screws and Côte de Genève striping. The completing is machined, yet looks decent, particularly while thinking about its cost. Type AL-710 offers a 42-hour power reserve.
