MEET THE ALPINA WATCHES WINTER AMBASSADORS
All Alpina “family” members – the “Alpinists” – are united by a common aim. They seek performance and progress when facing a challenge in extremely demanding environments. They successfully accomplish their missions by applying the “Alpinist” principles:
TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS
DON’T FORGET YOUR ROOTS
We only associate with friends and partners that – like us – truly share, live and work according to these principles, and we hope that any person who adheres to them, and wishes to promote them, will one day decide to wear an Alpina watch, thereby becoming an “Alpinist”.
That our Ambassadors are Alpine skiers, snowboarders, free riders, ice-skaters, divers, adventurers, or skipper, they all share our values, care about the Outdoor environment and best represent the Alpinist attitude!
Take a moment to learn more about them and follow them along their different worldwide competitions, events or adventures.
Born on January 2nd, 1994, in Briançon in the Upper Alps in France, Nils Allegre began skiing at the age of two and a half with his parents at the French resort of Serre Chevalier. First, he joined the Briançon ski club – where his father was a coach at the time – and six years later, he joined that of Serre Chevalier. Nils Allegre soon realised that his destiny lay in competitive skiing. Quickly captivated by the discipline he had dreamed of from an early age, he still remembers watching reruns of ski world cups with his family, which back then were recorded on video. These recordings proved invaluable, enabling Nils and his father – his mentor – to watch every descent over and over, so as to analyse them down to the very last detail. Happy memories that continue to inspire him in the practise of this sport even today.
Nils Allegre has been part of the France Ski Team since 2011. Having started out as a member of the Young Talent (category C) team, his first European Cup competitions (category B) followed before he joined the Men's World Cup Speed (alpine skiing) team, where he has been progressing for three seasons already. In 2018, Nils was named French Double Champion of Super-G and combined, then in 2019, French Vice Champion of Super-G. He also took 14th place at the Are World Ski Championships (Sweden) in Super-G, as well as 6th place at the Bormio Ski World Cup (Italy) in combined. In 2020, the French skier took 7th place at the Hinterstoder World Cup (Austria) in Super-G and is 13th place in the global ranking for combined and 15th for Super-G.
