MassDrop offers Victorinox Alpnach Auto Chrono Watch for $499.99 (reg. $1,795) plus $14.25 shipping.
A tribute to the Swiss Army’s famous Cougar AS 532 helicopters, which are headquartered in the town of Alpnach, this automatic chronograph offers a handful of pilot-focused functions and designs. The first thing you’ll notice is the running seconds subdial at 9 o’clock, the hands of which are designed to look like a helicopter’s propellers. The Alpnach is also fitted with a unidirectional 120-click bezel for countdown purposes, as well as an internal tachymeter scale. And the build quality? With PVD coating on the crown, pushers, and heavily knurled bezel, plus a slightly domed sapphire crystal, it’s every bit as tough as the Swiss Army itself.
