Alpina has consistently been a solid part in the pilot watch class. Its watches are very much planned, professional and appealingly valued. Not much, simply reasonable, straightforward energetic watches. Their esthetic is educated by 50 years spent as an official provider of military flying watches to mainland aviation based armed forces, which means viable usefulness and convenience have consistently been first concerns of the brand. This ethos additionally reaches out to the company’s famous games watches.
The Shadow Line embraces this equivalent methodology yet with a firmly hazier bend. Dull dials, dim cases, dim lashes – these are subtle looking watches. But then, in their own specific manner they offer a bit of tastefulness that lifts them over the situation with straightforward games watch. Positively this dull, agonizing esthetic will not suit all preferences yet it does evidently open up these current models to potential new customers.
Startimer Pilot Shadow Line
The stand-apart for me is the Startimer Pilot Automatic Shadow line with a rose gold-plated tempered steel 44mm case and standing out dull dark dial from a sunray finish. This is a much-adored shading combination that has been effectively utilized by other brands before and truly adds a dash of refinement to the Startimer Pilot Automatic.
The format is equivalent to the first , with simple to-peruse curiously large brilliant hand-applied numerals and lists. The lone distinction is that the hands and lists are currently rose gold-plated. The date is shown by means of a gap at 3 o’clock.

The same models are likewise accessible with a quartz chronograph work (despite the fact that there is no rose gold form.) The Startimer Pilot Chronograph Big Date Shadow line is fueled by the AL-372 type, a high-exactness Swiss quartz movement.
Alpiner 4 Shadow line
If pilot watches aren’t your thing, there’s likewise the Alpiner 4 Shadow line. The Alpiner 4 Automatic is a moderately new model for Alpina, having joined the line-up in 2016. From that point forward, the company has been consistently adding to this well known reach .
For the Shadow line form, Alpina presents a dark PVD-covered 44mm tempered steel case matched with a dark dial with sunray finish. Differentiating unequivocally against this dull scenery is the particular red triangle decorating the seconds hand and the three-sided marker at 12 o’clock on the bi-directional turning bezel. Luminova-treated files guarantee simple perusing even in low light conditions and the date is shown at 3 o’clock. Inside is the AL-525 automatic type, offering a 38-hour power save (most likely a Sellita SW200 movement).
As with all models in the Alpiner 4 assortment, this watch is against attractive, stun safe, water-impervious (to 10 ATM) and stain-safe. Once more, it’s offered on Alpina’s associated e-lash in dark leather.
Pricing for every one of the six models is entirely sensible however mirror a slight premium compared to the standard adaptations. The Startimer Pilot Automatic Shadow line is EUR 1,295 in rose gold-plated steel and EUR 1,050 in dark PVD-covered steel.
