Alpina is a Swiss watch brand with a penchant for making accessibly priced, vintage-styled tool watches, and a campaign on Massdrop has one of the brand’s most basic watches, the Alpiner Automatic, at a massive discount: about 65 percent off. So, for just $500, you can get a well-rounded watch that features an automatic movement (basically a Swiss Sellita SW200), a handsome dial and a stainless steel bracelet. If you’ve been looking for a simple, reasonably priced piece to dip your toes into mechanical watches, you can’t do much better than this.
A note on Massdrop:
Massdrop is not like other online retailers. It’s a members-only site that requires signing up (all it takes is an email address). If you’re not a member, you can sign up here. When you place an order from Massdrop at a discounted price, you’re not buying from them directly. The site works by taking orders from consumers, then bulk ordering product at a discount directly from brands and other wholesalers. For more information on how Massdrop works, click here.
