ABOUT ALPINA

OUR ALPINISTS

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:

We only associate with partners that – like us – truly share, live and work according to these principles, and we hope that any person who adheres to them, and whishes to promote them, will one day decide to wear an Alpina watch, thereby becoming an “Alpinist”.

THE BRAND

THE ORIGINAL SWISS SPORT WATCH
ALPINE SPORTS WATCH MANUFACTURING – SINCE 1883

Alpina, famous for its red triangle signature, is a fine watchmaking manufacture based in Geneva, Switzerland.

Founded in 1883, Alpina’s watchmaking history spans more than 130 years. A true pioneer of the Swiss watchmaking industry, Alpina has been the source of numerous patents and innovative calibers. Alpina invented the concept of the Swiss sport watch, as we know it today, with the birth of its legendary Alpina 4 in 1938. Today, Alpina is one of the very few Swiss watch companies, which develops, produces and assembles its movements entirely in-house. Alpina proposes five in-house calibers: the AL-980 Tourbillon; the AL-718 World Timer; the AL-950 Automatic Regulator; the AL-710 Automatic Small Date, and, most recently, the AL-760 Flyback Chronograph, featuring the patented “Direct Flyback” technology.

Faithful to its long tradition of innovation, in 2015 Alpina introduced the first connected Swiss Made Horological Smartwatch, thereby creating a new watch category in the Swiss watch industry. Alpina’s mission is to design and engineer luxury sport watches that operate with the greatest precision and reliability possible in the most demanding sporting environments, like the Alps.
