Victor Muffat-Jeandet and Alpina are united by their love for Alpine sports and the Alpine universe and identify with the same "Alpinist" values which both believe are the foundations for any sports, professional and personal success. These values are:
Victor: I always go my own way to achieve the best results. Maybe it's not the most conventional, expected or recommended one, but it works for me.
Alpina: Alpina is a proudly independent watch brand, producing its own movements since 1883 and going its own way in marketing and design solutions.
Victor: with an incredible resolve and relentless training, Victor has become one of the best men skiers. Everything was earned with hard work and sweat.
Alpina: Outstanding watch and movement innovations, amongst which the invention of the modern sports watch in 1938, have been achieved by Alpina in its more than 130 years history by applying the greatest perseverance and focus on innovation and in business.
Victor: Very attached to his roots and origins. Victor comes from a city skiing's process, he was not born in the mountains and has had less facilities than some other skiers. He is today inspiring a lot of younger athletes and he shows to all of them that with perseverance and high level of training, the dream may become true.
Alpina: Embodies the Swiss watchmaking culture since more than a century and respects the Swiss way of working based on high intrinsic quality through handcraft, ultimate precision in processes, and the time and attention to detail required to produce watches, which are simply well made.
Victor and Alpina have concluded a comprehensive partnership, which previews advertising, PR and social media activities, linked to the Alpiner Collection that embodies the Swiss Alpine style and luxury sports.
Victor about the partnership "I am very happy about this partnership. Ski and watches require a high level of technical skills and need to be highly precise. The Brand offers sports timepieces with technical specifications absolutely useful in my sport: shockproof, waterproof, and high precision on the time. I also need a watch for tracking my activity and sleep and am very enthusiast with my new Horological Smartwatch".
