My first Alpina

Post by svaglic » February 15th 2023, 3:50pm

I wasn’t expecting it to be so nice, I really wasn’t. This thing feels great in the hand and it’s hard to find fault with it.
The listing said these were refurbs and the box would have a sticker, but mine doesn’t have anything anywhere to indicate it is a refurb.

Brand. Alpina
Model Number AL-525NN3S6
Item Shape Round
Dial window material type Sapphire Crystal
Display Type Analog
Clasp Buckle
Case material Stainless Steel
Case diameter 40mm
Band Material Leather
Band Color Black
Dial color Black

The band is very comfortable, it blends like butter onto the wrist, but I will change it out and put this one up. I am not crazy about leather bands, but this one really is comfortable.
I’ll set it tonight and see how it does during the night and wear it tomorrow and see how it goes.

I am happy I got this, I hesitated and told myself no, but I couldn’t get it and the stupid crazy price out of my mind. Glad I got this and gave into the voices in my head, it fits the wrist real nice, zero overhang and it sits comfortable so far.

My second watch that came in today.
I’m still waiting on the Second Hour to come in. Maybe in a few days.
