Alpiner 4 Manufacture Flyback Chronograph

Alpiner 4 Manufacture Flyback Chronograph
 
 

An acknowledged specialist in pilot’s watches, Alpina is pursuing its quest for performance with this flyback chronograph entirely in line with its technical and sporty collections. Invented in the 1930s to facilitate pilots’ use of their watch, the flyback function is now much appreciated for its functionality and reliability. Three years of development were needed to equip this model with the Manufacture AL-760 calibre and its flyback chronograph module. Easy to handle via its two pushers, this timepiece also ensures perfect readability of the indications, even in dim light. With its sophisticated look, taut lines and high-tech dial, the “Black Edition” Alpiner 4 Manufacture Flyback Chronograph pushes the boundaries of sporty watchmaking and expresses its strength with style and efficiency.
