Alpina innovates with two new automatic watches inspired by the model of the 50s: the Automatic Alpiner and Automatic Chronograph Alpiner. This new line symbolizes well the concept of the Swiss mechanical offering a very sporty and elegant style. These two new timepieces feature refined lines, a dial with contemporary design and finishes that made the success of the Swiss Manufacture for over 130 years.
It should be remembered that Alpina was one of the first manufactures to launched, a modern sports watch in 1938.
The Alpiner line is an ideal collection for mountaineering fans and athletes. This new collection combines a sapphire crystal with domed dial with sunray finishes, a 41.5 mm case and refined horns. All these finishes give the Alpiner shows a style that is both classic and contemporary. On the back of the case figure the three peaks of the Alpina brand: the Jungfrau, Monch and Eiger. This symbol embodies the Swiss watchmaker since 1883.
Two models faithful to the Swiss style

Its sunny dial comes in three different versions: silver, black or gray, with hour markers and rose gold numerals. The sapphire glass of the dial features an antiglare treatment, and SuperLuminova on the numerals and index.

The second model is designed according to the same process as the Automatic model.

Four dial versions are available for this model: silver, silver with “eyes”, black or gray. This is complemented by index and rose gold numerals.
