Swiss Watch Brand Alpina Launches a Budget Watch for Travelers
[vc_row][vc_column][vc_gallery interval=”0″ images=”893,894,895″ img_size=”1200×736″ onclick=””][vc_column_text]Alpina’s penchant for building reasonably priced, Swiss-made tool watches has always shown through in its mechanical timepieces, but for would-be watch buyers who don’t care about mechanical watchmaking (or would prefer something cheaper), the brand’s low-cost, battery-powered offerings have always been tempting, too. Adding to its stable of sub-$1,000 quartz timepieces, the brand has just introduced a trio of simple, rugged-looking GMT watches.
The Startimer Pilot GMT comes with a stainless steel 42mm case and has three distinct colorways to choose from: a full black dial, a gray-and-beige bezel and a gray-and-red bezel (with a PVD black case). The latter two are an interesting choice — they almost give the appearance of a faded vintage watch. Each comes affixed to a nylon strap and is water resistant to 100 meters. Given that entering into the mechanical GMT club generally starts over $1,000, the Startimer Pilot GMT’s sub-$600 starting price makes it a great budget choice for travelers.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Get it Here (Amazon)” color=”black” size=”lg” align=”center” button_block=”true” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fgp%2Fsearch%2Fref%3Das_li_qf_sp_sr_tl%3Fie%3DUTF8%26tag%3Dgga04-20%26keywords%3DAlpina%20Men’s%20’STARTIMER%20PILOT%26index%3Daps%26camp%3D1789%26creative%3D9325%26linkCode%3Dur2%26linkId%3D99fd7c0bed73e60db7efe2a81c5d1b82|||”][vc_column_text]
