Alpha mechanical chronograph watch
Excellent time piece. Just the right size , keeps excellent time . This is the 3rd Alpha i have purchased from ALHA EUROPE and i'm completely satisfied.
This watch is absolutely lovely, and it's even better in person than on photos and videos. What's good on this is that the hour indices (which are stainless steel) catch the light and flash a lot. The same is true of the hands and the dials. The lume is also better than I had expected. It's mostly on the hands, but there is also lume under the indices. The watch is light, and the bracelet very comfortable. It has 6 micro-adjust holes, as well as screw-links. It's therefore very easy to get a good fit. Yes, the clasp is not milled, but it doesn't come undone and it works well. It's also the kind of clasp that would have been used.
The chronograph works well and it's beautiful. The crown and pushers work well, and it doesn't take much winding each day to get it to full charge. No power reserve marker here, but the crown just won't screw anymore when it has reached its limit.
One big reason why I chose Alpha was that they explicitly guarantee their watches for a year. Other people offer this movement, but won't guarantee it.
I cannot think of any way to improve this at the price. The acrylic crystal is a weakness, but it's what was used then. No issue if you work in an office, but it might be if you work manually. Still, polywatch can be used to buff out scratches.
Well done Alpha.
Happy with watch. I have thin wrist so only had to micro adjust but say not fit big wrist
