Alpina AL-860 Caliber

Inside the Startimer “Black Star“ we’ll find the Alpina AL-860 Automatic Chronograph movement, the same as we saw in the StarTimer Pilot “Sunray”. It has a “Bi-Compax” 60 seconds and 30 minutes small counter layout, which is ideal for time readability, a must for professional pilot watches.

The 30 jewels Alpina AL-860 is beating at 28,800 vph, offering a very useful 46 hours of power reserve.
