Heritage Pilot

Heritage Pilot is a contemporary rendition of Alpina's 1920s and 1930s pilot's watches that conserves many of the original characteristics, from the hand-wound pocket-watch calibre to the applied hourmarkers and Alpina logo on the dial, or the hinged back that reveals the movement when opened. Other features, meanwhile, have been upgraded to meet modern standards. The precision of the movement has been honed and the case is crafted from stainless steel. Sobriety is at the heart of this timepiece, with its mat black dial, luminescent hands and off-centre seconds at 6 o'clock. Produced as a limited series of 1,883 pieces, this classic watch pays tribute to the brand's rich past, and promises great things for the future with its resolutely up-to-date vintage style!
