Watch of the day (WOTD)

What's my wrist-wear choice for today?


My Flavor Of The Day

Alpina, Startimer Chronograph

Unbelievably, it's Colts Football Sunday, and I'm not wearing a timepiece featuring any hint of Blue. Opting instead, to wear the Alpina, Startimer Chronograph as my WOTD.


Alpina is a fantastic brand, incorporating quality, and fit-and-finish that you can feel, immediately after removing this piece from the presentation box. Everything, from the dial and case, to the strap is very well done, and beautifully presented. There's no mistaking quality, and Alpina represents why "Swiss Made" timepieces are still sought after.


As a Pilot watch, I absolutely love the khaki / Sand colors used within the dial and strap, giving this timepiece a more Military feel. Not many brands can pull of the Khaki / Sand look, but Alpina does this, about as good or better, as the other brands, and that includes heavy hitters like I.W.C.


Further playing on the sweet, Brown tones of the Startimer Chronograph, is the addition of a beaded bracelet, in color selection SoHo, designed by Dorsal Bracelet Company, providing a perfect, complementary look.
