the AL-950 Automatic Regulator, and the AL-710 Small Date all announced the reemergence of Alpina as a name to be reckoned with in the world of Swiss watchmaking.
In 2006, Alpina made one more important move in its journey into the future when it constructed and moved to a new, purpose-built manufacturing site in Geneva, one of the spiritual homes of luxury watch making, as well as being the ancestral home of the Alpina brand.
In 2013, we celebrated our 130th anniversary, persevering in our philosophy to produce the ideally manufactured watches for those brave enough to participate in the most demanding and extreme sporting activities.
In 2014, 76 years after having introduced the concept of the modern sports watch with the Alpina “4” in 1938, Alpina comes back with the concept of ‘4’ in it’s Alpiner collection. The Alpiner “4” is a professional sport watch, featuring the four sports properties: 1.Antimagnetic, 2.Antishock, 3.Water-resistant, 4.Stainless.
In 2015 Alpina invents the Horological Smartwatch, a Swiss made connected watch, with analogical time and quantified-self functionalities display, using watch hands. In the same year Alpina also presents a new in-house caliber, the AL-760 Automatic Flyback Chronograph. This caliber reinterprets the flyback mechanism through the patented “Direct Flyback” technology, invented by Alpina. This technology significantly increases the reliability and the robustness of the flyback mechanism.
