Marine Watch By Alpina: The New KM-710

The Swiss watch manufacturer Alpina has reinvented its historic service watch of the Navy. In 1934, the massive buildup of the military required several new, high-performance timer; among other things, service watches with clearly perceptible dials and hands. These watches are very popular in collector circles. The offer is very limited on well-preserved and still functional watches.
Alpina has now reinterpreted these wrist watches and increases among other things the former diameter from 32 to 35 mm to 41.5 mm. In the fundamental design of casing, dial and hands, the product designers have however consistently related to the coveted originals.

The housing of the KM-710 are made of stainless steel and have, as already mentioned, with 41.5 mm, a new, larger diameter. The floor is screwed, so that the watch can withstand a pressure up to 5 bar.

Three central pointer on the dial display hours, minutes, and seconds. Alpina also promotes the nostalgia-heavy look by the pointer date at 6 o’clock. Hour and minute hands and the hour markers are equipped with Super-LumiNova in order to guarantee good readability even under difficult lighting conditions. The dial is protected by a “Glass Box”-Sapphire glass, which further adds to the vintage look. The watch is available in two different versions – once with cream-coloured dial, once with silver dial and Superluminova in «chemin de fer».

The Alpina KM-710 is powered by in-house automatic calibre AL-710. The shape of the double-acting bearing rotor clearly recalls the significant
Hammer of the 1949 featured Manufactory calibre Alpina 582.The work is Strip with Geneva and a perlage decorated, all the bridges and clamp are beveled and rhodium plated. When fully wound, the caliber provides a power reserve of 42 hours. The balance works with 28,800 vibrations per hour.

The watch and also the retro look is rounded off by a brown leather strap with stitching matching color to the dial.
