The case, 44 mm in diameter, is rendered in stainless steel. The case incorporates a sapphire compass bezel turning in just one direction, eliminating any mistakes that might be caused with a bezel turning in both directions. You can drop a glance at the mechanical heart of the timepiece, the sophisticated AL-880 caliber, via the sapphire crystal case-back.
The impressive black face features the time with help of luminous white hour and minute hands. Keeping in mind that in yacht racing the seconds are of all importance, the triangular seconds hand of the new Alpina watch is really easy to read as it stands out in fluorescent orange.
Those fond of yacht racing are aware that the countdown to the start of any yacht race is a very emotional moment. The Sailing Yachttimer Countdown watch features countdown windows from 10 to 1, finishing with the fluorescent START indicator which signals that the action really begins.
The new Alpina watch boasts 300-meter water-resistance (equal to a depth of 30 atmospheres).
The novelty is teamed with a black rubber strap that can be easily replaced by metal and metal mesh bracelets.
The new Alpina Sailing Yachttimer Countdown watch is a limited edition of 8,888 pieces. It is delivered in a specially designed gift box, which houses a stunning, miniature Extreme 40 yacht.
