Alpina Alpiner Quartz GMT

The existing Alpiner Quartz range, launched in 2019, has been updated to include three new models, each featuring a GMT function in the form of a central hand alongside the hour, minutes, seconds and date displays. With two choices of dial colour and bracelet, the Alpiner Quartz GMT is available to purchase from 895 Euros.

In 1933, exactly 50 years after Alpina was founded, the fledgling Swiss company launched its now legendary design, the “Block Uhr”. With its anti-magnetic, anti-shock and water-resistant qualities and stainless steel case, it was more than a simple watch. Indeed, it established the basic principles of the sports watch. The Alpina 4 collection, created in 1938, incorporated elements that are now globally recognised, some 80 years on, as the essential features of an “outdoor” watch.

Alpina Alpiner Quartz GMT

The latest Alpiner Quartz GMT follows in the footsteps of its sporting predecessors. Its quartz technology gives it almost 4 years of precision time-keeping and also ensures that Alpina’s authentic Swiss-made timepieces are highly affordable without sacrificing the technology or finishes for which the brand is famous.

The introduction of these three new models with GMT function further enhances the value of the Alpiner Quartz collection.

Like all authentic sports watches, the new Alpiner Quartz GMT has a firm focus on legibility and performance. The large central red pointer keeps track of the domestic time by means of the 24-hour increments engraved on the bezel. The pointer can be moved forwards or backwards, allowing you to adjust to local time in just a few seconds.

The Alpiner Quartz GMT’s colour-coded bezel provides a simple and intuitive way to distinguish between day and night, removing the need for a separate day/night display which would impair the clean lines of the dial.

The date display has also moved from 6 o’clock to 3 o’clock, thus ensuring that the Alpiner Quartz GMT retains the aesthetic balance and legibility of its predecessors. By tweaking these elements, the dial now has space for the Alpiner Quartz GMT’s 100-metre water resistance guarantee, a feature which makes the watch ideally suited to nautical and marine activities.

In respect of the casing, the new Alpiner Quartz GMT upholds the Swiss-made quality that has been synonymous with Alpina for more than 135 years. The elegant 42-mm stainless steel case is available in a satin or polished finish with a bevelled body, screw-retained crown, sapphire crystal and a full back engraved with a depiction of the Alps, recalling the company’s origins. There are two different dial options: anthracite grey (with steel bracelet) or navy blue (with perforated leather strap or steel bracelet).
