A 1930 Alpina chronograph with stainless steel, cushion-shaped case design, a single-push chronograph with a rare Valjoux VZ movement. Powered by the rare one-push caliber GHT,  the basis for the famous Valjoux 22. The case is also a rare cushioned stay-bright case. The dial is simple with bar indexes, but with a touch of charm. Overall, the cushion-shaped case shows a wonderful taste for this period of time.
