Alpina Worldtimer Manufacture
Alpina’s Worldtimer features a rotating ring with the names of 24 cities inscribed on it. A second rotating ring has 24-hour markers. This is used to display time in different time zones. Local time is shown by a standard hour and minute hand. The alpina Worldtimer has a mechanical automatic caliber AL-718 with 26 jewels and has a 48-hour power reserve. The watch is water resistant to 10 ATM. The watch is finished off with a black leather crocodile strap. The front and the back of the watch are covered with sapphire crystal. The world time system works this way. First, the local city is set at the top by changing the disc via the crown. For example, Genève is set on top. It means that the hour and minutes hands are representing the time in Genève (= Central Europe).
From the outer dial, the wearer can check the times in different time zones. Under the label New York, the number displayed is 5, meaning that it is 5:07 a.m. in New York. Under the name Moscow, you see the number 13, meaning that it is 13:07 hours, or 1:07 p.m., in Moscow. In this way, the alpina Worldtimer shows the time around the world in a glance. The Alpina Worldtimer is part of the alpina Aviation collection, developed in close collaboration with Cessna Aircraft and PrivatAir. alpina Genève, Cessna Aviation and PrivatAir work together closely to promote their equally high quality products and services, through cross-marketing activities in Europe and North America.
The Worldtimer is based on the in-house AL-710 caliber used in the Startimer Manufacture. The new Worldtimer caliber AL-718 ensures easy adjustment of all functions, through a single crown. Furthermore, the production of the alpina Startimer Worldtimer will be limited at 8’888 pieces and they will be presented in a dedicated, luxurious packaging, alongside a Cessna Citation Mustang scale model in PrivatAir livery.
