Earlier this year at Baselworld, we saw the Alpiner 4 watches from Alpina. Today, we see two new models.
The 3-hand watch has a number of different variations. The one above is one of the dressier, subtler versions while the watch featured below is a more casual-wear watch. All of the watches share the same movement, the AL525 which has 26 jewels, 28,800BPH, and a power reserve of 38 hours. There are two case options (both 41.5mm in diameter), a two-tone case with a yellow-gold bezel and a stainless steel case, and just a plain SS case. See below for all versions and model numbers.
I like this watch. This particular version is (at least in my opinion) one of Alpina's finest watches with it's clean lines, classic-looking panda dial, and good specs. The movement is the AL750, which is clearly based off of the Valjoux 7750. It has a 48 hour power reserve and 25 jewels. The case, similar to the 3-hand watch, is 41.5mm in diameter, a size that is getting harder to find as watches grow in size. Once again, you can look below for the other available versions.
