Pre-Baselworld 2016: Alpina Full Black Alpiner 4 Manufacture Flyback Chronograph

Alpina Full Black Alpiner 4 Manufacture Flyback Chronograph
The 44 mm chronograph in a stainless steel case with black PVD coating not only looks good. The timepiece with in-house calibre also features a new developed flyback function …

 

Alpina told me, that it took them three years of development to equip this model with the Manufacture AL-760 calibre and its flyback chronograph module. The new Full Black Alpiner 4 Manufacture Flyback Chronograph is easy to handle via its two pushers, the timepiece also ensures perfect readability of the indications, even in dim light.

    Last year it was a very positive surprise for me when Alpina presented an in-house chronograph movement in a watch with a quite affordable price. Unfortunately the look of the dial of that watch did not really convince me when I saw the original watch. This new edition seems to look a lot better.
