The Swiss watchmaker Alpina Geneve is pleased to announce the launch of its new Pilot Startimer; a very attractive range of contemporary watches, inspired by the original design of the 1920 Alpina and 1930.

For user comfort, a solution of the original fitting was found for the leather strap: it closes on top of the wrist, not the bottom, reminiscent of old leather straps. A new metal bracelet, which can be adapted to all versions, is
