Just ordered this Alpina startimer. It's just like the black PVD model that a few other people recently picked up. This one has a different colored dial and strap. Gemnation had it as a daily special. Thought it looked kind of nice. I'll post about it when it comes in. I'm having a new roof installed today. Thought I'd blow some more cash.

+1 on what #four said. The dial color blends well with the strap and the case colors. Congrats!

I like it! How is Alpina? I've always been iffy on them because I see them a lot on MyHabit along with Raymond Weil and Fortis. I like some of their designs but wonder about them...

They're very nice watches.

You'll love it. I have the PVD version on orange zulu strap.

Mine's quickly becoming my favorite grab-n-go watch. I went hiking with my kids this morning and wore it (instead of my Suunto)....went thru mud/rocks/mud etc and really one heck of a solid watch. I have 3 straps for it alone ..a black pilot riveted strap, orange zulu and a tan strap. Just ordered a 22mm orange Obris rubber strap (the cheap man's isofrane).

I picked up one of those last night, too. The flash sale was a fantastic deal and the discount code made it even better. This will be my only quartz watch.
