The ALPINA Sailing Yachttimer Countdown
Alpina is developing a lot its sailing collection with the arrival of the new Yachttimer Countdown. Alpina is a big reference in the world of luxury boats and yachts with Corum.
To recognize the sign that this timepiece is a very serious sailing watch, you can simply have a look at the countdown window, which special features from 0 to 4. As you can see it runs into a fluorescent START indicator for a better precision and readability after the action begins.
As it is the seconds that count when participating to a yacht race, the triangular seconds hand is in fluorescent orange.
The hour and minute hands make their mark too in luminescent white. (See pictures in the gallery)
The unidirectional sapphire compass bezel is graduated over 360°.
The transparent back allows an amazing view of the complex AL-880 calibre while the rubber strap is made to withstand the elements.
The Yachttimer Countdown is as much at home skimming the waves as down at the yacht club.
Price range : 2500 to 4000 Euros
