Watch Spotlight: Alpina Startimer Pilot Quartz Chronograph Petroleum Blue

    Alpina is one of the most recognised names in the world of watches, founded in 1883 and proudly producing the famous red-triangle signature watches that whisper quality and eye-pleasing appearance. In this series of Watch Spotlight, we’ll be looking at Alpina’s Startimer Pilot Quartz Chronograph with the petroleum blue dial.


    The petroleum blue dial on the watch is undoubtedly an eye-catcher; its distinctive dark blue hue combines harmoniously with the 41mm stainless steel case and the warm-coloured brown calf leather strap. Each detail of the watch is considered, from the off-white stitching on the strap to the crisp font on the chronograph — nothing is overlooked.


    By virtue of being a chronograph, this watch is already a winner in my eyes regarding functionality. As a quartz movement, the AL-372 Caliber carries great accuracy (as expected) with 48 months of battery life and 13 jewels. As a bonus, this watch is also shielded with a great case ensuring the movement is safe for up to 100 metres in water.


    The Alpina Startimer Pilot Quartz Chronograph is a reputable piece in any sophisticated watch fanatic’s collection. It’s well-refined with superb detail that will enhance your enjoyment of it. The strap is comfy and feels sturdy, suitable for daily wearing, and the accurate quartz movement will make your life simpler and more leisurely. This one is for the buy list.
