Alpina has announced its latest line of timepieces alongside news that Mike Goulian, the current leader in this year’s Red Bull Air Race World Championship, has been signed as a brand ambassador.
The watchmaker has also formed a new collaboration as the Official Team Partner of Team Goulian in the Championships.
The new Startimer Pilot Chronograph Quartz from Alpina comes in three core styles. The first has a navy blue dial with a matching blue nylon strap or a stainless steel bracelet. The second showcases a beige dial also with a choice of either blue nylon strap or a stainless steel bracelet. The third is an all-black version.
All three have a 42mm case with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and a specially-engraved case back with the Alpina logo.
Each dial is decorated with white or blue luminous indexes and hand-polished hands.
Three counters are placed at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock displaying the small seconds counter, the 30-minute counter and days of the week respectively. A date window is added at 4 o’clock to complete the functionalities.
The pieces will make an appearance at Basel this year and go on sale for £795 in May.
