Editor’s Note: In this edition of the Three Watch Collection for $5,000, reader Bill B. gives us three often overlooked and perhaps underappreciated watches from Alpina, and manages to come in under budget in the process. I love the everyday practical considerations made by Bill, and salute his dedication to a single brand trio.

All in, at retail and sourced with additional bracelets, low to mid 4’s. But the world we live in, the options on the gray and used marketplace; this 3 watch entry level Swiss made collection can be had for far less. With money left over to buy additional strap options, or a weekend G-Shock or Ironman beater, tough to go wrong, as long as you are ok with a larger 44mm watch. If you have old eyes like me, maybe it’s worth a second look.
