Alpnach

One of the most striking chronographs ever from Victorinox Swiss Army, the Alpnach makes multiple references to the famous Cougar AS 532, beginning with its name which is that of the Swiss air force base for these twin engines. The Alpnach meticulously replicates the forms and assertiveness of this exceptional helicopter. The dial has been pared down to the essentials, with hourmarkers on the flange and accents of green, red or orange on the chronograph counters, which take their cue from cockpit instruments. In one last reference to the AS 532, the small seconds counter at 9 o'clock incorporates the Cougar's signature four blades. The ballistic nylon strap adds to the professional allure of this resolutely masculine timepiece that is clearly cut out for the toughest situations.
