    Alpina Alpiner 4 GMT

      Basic Information

      Make and Model: Alpina Alpiner 4 GMT

      Model number(s): AL-550G5AQ6

      Status: Sold or traded

      Description

    Alpina is a brand that provides a lot of value in their watches and the Alpiner GMT is no exception. I purchased one and sold it later. After a few months, I regretted that decision and bought another one.

    Pros:

    • Really nice quality and feel
    • GMT hand is small but looks great
    • Nice dial with some sunray effect

    Cons:

    • a bit large and heavy
    • date wheel is sunken quite a bit below the dial so date can can be difficult to read
    • Compass bezel looks nice but probably wont be used by many. A countdown or 12 hour dial would be more useful
    • Stock leather strap is very stiff and feels cheap
