Inspired by an Alpiner automatic model from the 1950's, the contemporary Alpiner line embodies the concept of Swissness to the fullest. It features the clean lines, essential dial design, and the intrinsic quality, reliability and finishes that distinguish the Swiss Manufacture - which invented the modern sports watch in 1938 - since more than 130 years.
The Alpiner line is the essential timepiece for the gentleman "alpinist" who values understated elegance but does not want to compromise on intrinsic watchmaking content. The combination of the "glass box" sapphire crystal, which today substitutes the hesalite version of the past century, and the dome shaped sunray finish dial with a clear cut case and lugs, give the Alpiner watches their unique classic, yet contemporary look. The 3-link bracelet contributes further to this unique combination of elegance and performance. The back of the 41.5mm case features the engraving of the iconic Alpina "3 summits" symbol, representing the Jungfrau, the Monch and the Eiger. The Alpine brand signature since 1883.
The Alpiner Automatic encases the AL-525 automatic 3 hands date movement. It has a diameter of 41.5 mm and comes in 3 sunray finished dial colours: silvered, black and grey with rose gold coloured indexes and numerals. The dome shaped dial under the antireflective treated "Glass Box" sapphire crystal, features applied indexes and numerals as well as thirteen superluminova dots. The Alpiner Automatic comes in stainless steel and offers a choice between in genuine leather or stainless steel bracelet.
