Alpina Startimer “201st Squadron” LE Watch

Postby koimaster » December 3rd 2015, 1:30pm

Wednesday November 18 2015 at 2 pm at Mexico’s Air Base No.1 in Santa Lucía, Pachuca, saw the 70th Anniversary of the Return of the Pilots of the Mexican Expeditionary Air Force’s 201st Squadron, known and recognized worldwide as “The Aztec Eagles” thanks to their participation in the Second World War.

In 1945, the 290 volunteer soldiers who traveled to the Pacific War Combat Zone were between 20 and 22 years old. Today they are aged 90 to 94 years old and describe themselves as happy to have served their country.

The Second World War Veterans came together to receive a well-deserved tribute from the Mexican Air Force and also to commemorate their companions who died in the performance of their duty.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

Alpina is like the only brand on the planet right now where I actually like about 3/4 of their product line, style wise.

Yup. I like their stuff; attractive, well made, no-bullshit.

It's a blatant copy of the IWC Flieger Chrono, no?
