    Older Alpinas are appealing to me. I like seeing them. The brand isn't familiar to me down here in the hinterlands of Texas, but is an intriguing one. Your watch is nice to see here in this thread.

    There's a 1940s/1950s (?) Alpina Rensie in its 33mm case with a black(?), slate gray(?), faded(?), "tropical" (?) dial in the menagerie here. It runs when wound and keeps indifferent (meaning bad) time. I have never used it because it's never been serviced since acquisition. Perhaps if I'd take the trouble to photograph it and stick it up on the Forum something could be learned about it.

    I think Rensie was the US named ones in the 40s when first shipped there.
    Square one ?

    I do not know why I keep looking at this thread. It only makes me feel inadequate.
