Alpina Alpiner Quartz Chronograph

Swiss watch brand Alpina presents a two-pusher compax chronograph with a quartz caliber. This is a new line for Alpina. Never, until now, had the Geneva-based company offered a Quartz Chronograph version of its famous Alpiner. It is a new offering that follows in the footsteps of the legendary Alpiner4, born in 1938 – a watch that is antimagnetic, shock-resistant, water-resistant and made of stainless steel.

Strengthened by this heritage, the three new Alpiner Quartz Chronograph timepieces feature a large 42 mm steel case, luminescent hour and minute hands (central as well as for the chronograph), and a seconds counter at 3 o’clock with a red hand, recalling the sporty vocation of the piece.

As always, the discreet Alpina logo, symbol of the Alpine summits, stands out in the form of a red triangle as a counterweight to the central chronograph hand.

As for the movement, the choice of a quartz calibre offers the new Alpiner Quartz Chronograph some exclusive advantages. The first: an exceptional longevity, with an autonomy of four and a half years, depending on its usage.

Secondly, quartz offers almost total resistance to shocks. The AL-373 calibre is the latest quartz movement to be integrated into Alpina’s collections. As such, it benefits from the company’s long experience in this field, guaranteeing a chronometric precision far superior to that of a mechanical movement, for a fraction of its price. Finally, this movement offers a date at 6 o’clock.
