PROGRESS AND INDEPENDENCE
The history of watch making in Switzerland can be traced back hundreds of years, to when dairy farmers used their downtime in the winter months to assemble precision watches. While the legacy of these initial horological pioneers continues, in that we still manufacture the finest Swiss movements in-house, progress has opened many new technological opportunities. Nowadays, computers, laser-guided machines, nano technology and state-of-the-art microscopes are all part of the armoury of the truly modern watchmaker. Continuous investments in hi-tech equipment and the development of new and innovative processes are at the core of Alpina’s avant-garde professional sports watch manufacturing operations.
At Alpina, we fully embrace the progress made to date, and today we are leaders in technological development. We are determined to assure continued improvement in the performance, functionality and quality of our watches.our independence.
