Watch of the day

What's my wrist-wear choice for today?

My Flavor Of The Day

Alpina, Startimer, Pilot Chronograph

For Sunday, closing out my weekend, with a solid selection, in the form of the Alpina, Startimer, Pilot Chronograph. The Alpina brand had been on my short list for many years. And I'm so pleased that I was finally able to add this brand to my collection.

The build quality, and fit-and-finish of this timepiece is exceptional. You can really feel the quality of the case and strap, right out of the presentation box; there is nothing cheap or slight about this timepiece. The use of brushed and polished contrasts along the case, bezel, and pushers is very well done. The use of tan / sand colors within the dial and strap is subtle, but offers a stark contradiction and POP, against the "Brownish" color dial.

Flying in perfect formation with the Startimer Pilot today, is a custom-crafted, bracelet creation, designed by Beads By Gonzo. With the bracelet capturing every color tone and hue within this beautiful timepiece.
