The Family: Startimer Pilot
The Alpina Startimer Pilot family features a collection of elegantly simple timepieces whose styling pays homage to Gottlieb Hauser’s original vision for the brand. In a nod to Alpina’s legacy as a supplier of watches to several elite air forces across the globe, the Startimer Pilot line is a modern re-imagining of the timeless aviator style watch, with this vintage styling given a thoroughly modern update at the hands of Alpina’s expert team of watchmakers at their manufacturing centre in Geneva.
The Brand: Alpina
Following the “Alpinist Principle,” Swiss watchmaker Gottlieb Hauser founded Alpina Watches in 1883 to unite his watchmaking endeavours with that of his contemporaries in order to achieve the highest possible standards in innovation and manufacturing. In 1938, Hauser totally overhauled the sports watch by introducing four key principles that he believed were essential to a watch being labeled as a “true sports watch”: antimagnetism, antishock, water resistance and stainless steel construction. To this day, the legendary Alpina 4 continues to be the go-to watch for Alpinists, air force pilots, divers, the navy and the army. In 2013, Alpina celebrated its 130th anniversary, with its trademark innovative approach still permeating the company’s approach to this day, gaining them a reputation as producers of sport watches that meet the most exacting horological standards, each microscopically tested to ensure that every timepiece that leaves the Alpina’s facility is completely faultless and a stunning example of high-end Swiss watchmaking.
