Startimer Pilot Automatic Gunmetal 40mm Ref. AL-525G3TS6

2 Reviews
The Swiss have been distinguished as one of the world’s best watchmakers for centuries, dominating the watch industry with their fine craftsmanship and exceptional quality. Back in 1883, independent watchmaker Gottleib Hauser stood out from the rest with a vision to establish a union of members among fellow watchmakers in Switzerland with an aim to work with each other to share ideas, parts and materials to bring watchmaking to another level. This was when he founded the Alpina Union Horlogère S.A. (UH) / Schweizerische Uhrmacher-Genossenschaft (SUG)' ('Corporation of Swiss Watchmakers') that was driven by Hauser’s ‘Alpinist Principle’  to unite the Swiss watchmaking industry. 

The Union was initially created to optimize and develop the movement manufacturing process with the team effort between manufacturers and suppliers.

However they soon developed their own completely in-house calibers and high-precision chronometers. In 1921, Alpina became highly recognized as a watch manufacturer that produced reliable aviation timepieces for military pilots during the Second World War. Today, these service wristwatches are highly desired by vintage military watch collectors for their legendary horological heritage. 

Alpina unveiled their updated Startimer collection of watches that pays homage to their vintage pilot watches with an impressive aviation design faithful to the spirit of its predecessors. The Alpina Startimer Pilot Automatic 40mm Gunmetal Ref. AL-525G3TS6 sports a 40mm black titanium PVD-coated stainless steel case for a dark stealthy look. The 40mm diameter is a significant downsize from the substantial 44mm in previous releases. This is a tasteful update that creates a sleeker aesthetic preferred by many watch enthusiasts as smaller watches are making a comeback.

Applied numerals for a sophisticated look
Finishing is well executed with a satin brushed finish on the top of the lugs as well as the side of the case, matching its utilitarian design. The slim bezel is polished to a smooth shine for a touch of refinement as well as a dressier vibe, looking perfect on the wrist despite it being a rugged tool watch. The 3 o’clock position of the case features a distinctively large signed crown that tapers beautifully for a confident grip while operating the crown. Paired with a black calf leather strap with off-white stitching, this piece looks incredibly versatile and ready to be strapped on the wrist for many occasions, even if you’re not a pilot.

Multiple finished case finishing with screwdown crown

Under the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, the Alpina Startimer Pilot Automatic carries a matte grey dial with leaf-style hour and minute hands. The minute hand reaches out to touch the legible minute markers, allowing the time to be read with ease. The dial bears characteristics from its original vintage design, including large lumed Arabic numerals and a prominent red triangle marker at the 12 o’clock position. With an additional dash of red on the second hand, the contrast between colours flawlessly complement each other for a truly charming dial design.

SuperLuminova glows brightly

At the heart of the Alpina Startimer Pilot Automatic Gunmetal lies the Alpina self-winding caliber AL-525 automatic movement that offers a power reserve of 38 hours that beats at a rate of 28,800 beats per hour. This 26 jewel movement is based on the ever-reliable Sellita SW200-1 movement, a movement renowned for its reliability and performance. At the back of the watch, the engraved screw-down case back protects the movement against accidental splashes with a water resistance of 100m (330 ft).

Alpina has continued to carry their legacy in Swiss watchmaking to produce many well-built watches today based on their heritage designs. The Alpina Startimer Pilot Automatic 40mm Gunmetal Ref. AL-525G3TS6 packs an unbeatable value with great specifications that ticks all the right boxes for a dependable everyday tool watch ready for your next adventure.
