Alpina Watches Jet Set to Martha’s Vineyard to Launch Pilot Collection To unveil the new Startimer Pilot Collection, Alpina watches flew a small group of timepiece-enthusiast journalists to Martha’s Vineyard this week for a day of sightseeing and New England cuisine.  Fittingly, guests were flown to the island and back to New York City in private chartered Cessna Jets.Lunch was enjoyed at Henry’s, in the historic Harbor View Hotel & Resort, where traditional New England clam chowder and lobster rolls were served.  The afternoon also consisted of a presentation of the new Startimer Pilot models given by Alpina CEO Peter Staas.  First was Staas’ own Manufacture Startimer Pilot, built with an in-house movement and automatic caliber featuring minute, hour and date indicators.  Next was was the Manufacture Startimer Pilot Regulator, which was very well received thanks to its historic pilot watch design features and modern regulator layout.  Finally, Staas introduced the chronograph version and the news that the collection was limited to 8,888 pieces.
