Dramatic? You bet. Such was my excitement at wearing the “new” Alsta for the first time, I couldn’t contain my disappointment when I realized — after years of believing to the contrary — that this was not a watch for me. That sadness quickly became anger when I started to pick apart what I didn’t like about the design and how it could — so easily — have been a different story. I always try and look on the bright side when it comes to watch reviewing. I am keen to hold back my own negativity at times, as I am aware I am just one man, and my feelings towards a watch are, while appreciated by many readers, not always the reason people visit Fratello or any other watch site.
