Alpina AlpinerX Alive Limited Edition Watch in Collaboration with Freeride Champion Markus Eder

Alpina has released a limited edition AlpinerX Alive designed by freeride champion Markus Eder.

An extreme freerider and world champion of the Freeride World Tour 2019, Markus Eder has also been named among the watch brand’s team of ‘Alpinists’ for almost two years. This year, to kick off the season much anticipated by winter sports enthusiasts, the Italian athlete has designed a limited edition of 100 of the famous Alpina smart watch, the AlpinerX Alive.

Thirty-year-old skier Markus Eder hails from South Tyrol in Italy and is regarded as a role model in the freeriding world.

To celebrate their collaboration and kick off the 2021/22 ski season, Alpina and Markus Eder have designed an exclusive 100-piece AlpinerX Alive limited edition, to the delight of watch collectors and freeriding fans.

Appreciative of the exceptional and almost infinite playground the mountains provided him with from an early age, Markus now pays a very special tribute to them, while conveying a powerful message.

Adorned with a logo representing three Alpine peaks at 12 o’clock, an elegant grey dial reveals a map of the world filled with red and raised designs, denouncing the danger currently facing the planet – this rich and bountiful Mother Earth – now caught in the stranglehold of global warming.

To reinforce its eco-responsible approach, the timepiece has been mounted on a vegetable leather strap, one of the first of its kind in the world of watchmaking, made from recycled apple waste. It also draws on the athlete and friend of the brand’s own ‘logo’.

As a little extra personal touch, the water-resistance mark has been signed by the Italian freerider. Characterised by subtle contrasts and shades of grey, luminescent silver-tone hands echoing the hour markers complete the dial, which is housed in a 44 mm steel case topped with a bidirectional bezel.
