* Inspired by an Alpiner automatic model from the 1950s, 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.
* The Alpiner Automatic encases the AL-525 automatic 3 hands date movement. It has a diameter of 41.5mm and comes in a stunning sunray finished anthracite dial colour with gold applied indexes and numerals. The combination of the dome shaped 'glass box' sapphire crystal, which today substitutes the hesalite version of the past century and the sunray finish dial with a clear cut case and lugs give the Alpiner watches their unique, classic yet contemporary look. The back of the 41.5mm case features the engraving of the iconic Alpina '3 summits' symbol, the Alpine brand signature since 1883.

Alpina Watches can trace its roots back to 1883, when Gottlieb Hauser founded the 'Alpina Swiss Watchmakers Corporation'. The watchmaker’s corporation was developed to optimise the manufacturing of movements and timepieces by forming a federation of cooperating watch manufacturers and suppliers.
However, Alpina Watches soon started developing and producing in-house watch calibres and chronometers. In 1901, the trademark "Alpina" was registered and appeared for the first time on high-end calibres and watches produced by Gottlieb Hauser.
By the 1920s, Alpina Watches were already being sold in over 2,000 outlets worldwide, an exceptional figure for that time. It is no exaggeration to say that Alpina was one of the first leading manufacturers of Swiss watches.
Today, the ideals and innovation upon which Alpina was founded are still alive in their Geneva watch manufacture, where they make professional sport watches to the most exacting horological standards.
