ALPINA – ALPINER AUTOMATIC 4
Introducing the Alpina Alpiner Automatic 4
Alpina invented the concept of “4” in 1938. The brand’s founder, Gottlieb Hauser, believed the perfect watch for athletes, divers, mountaineers and other extreme adventurers should have four features (anti-magnetic, anti-shock, water-resistant and made of steel). These “standards” became part of the Alpiner watch collection in 2014 and appear in the Alpiner Automatic 4 unveiled today.
Its 44mm steel case is watertight to depths of 100m and topped by a bezel engraved with a minute scale and triangular marker. It houses the self-winding AL-525 movement that fuels the time and date functions and the 36-hour power reserve.
The hours, minutes and seconds appear in the centre of the petrol blue sunburst dial (also available in black or silver) and the white-on-black date display lies at 3.
Price: 1,250 CHF
