The Alpina Heritage Pilot is a large, classic aviation style watch, which replicates Alpina’s own 1926 pilot watch. It is a limited edition of 1883 pieces, 1883 being the year the Alpina brand was created. But let’s not concentrate on the past, and let’s talk about the present and this beautiful new Alpina Pilot.
