Alpina makes some nice-looking watches, and their newest model is no exception. With the introduction of Alpina's first in-house manufacture flyback chronograph, the company is creating another milestone in their 132-year history. According to Alpina, the AL-760 Alpiner 4 Manufacture Flyback Chronograph not only features an in-house caliber that does the job, but the mechanism itself is simplified. Although retaining many of the features that made the version released at Baselworld last year appealing (this post was about 1 of 7 that day, which is why it's so short), the new watch will most certainly appeal to some of the same market, but also buyers who prefer the all-black look to the conventional stainless steel. It showcases the same features as last year's model, including but not limited to: antishock and antimagnetic properties. I feel confident enough in everyone reading this that I don't have to go into which subdial displays which function. The movement is comprised of 233 components, only 96 of which are a part of the flyback function. The movement also features a 38-hour power reserve, more than sufficient for an automatic movement. What more is there to say? Alpina, once again, has introduced a watch worthy of their name. Needless to say, I can't wait to see what else Alpina is planning on introducing.
