In 2022, Alpina is renewing its partnership with the Freeride World Tour for the 5th consecutive year. To celebrate this collaboration Alpina is revealing an exclusive limited edition, the Alpiner Quartz Chronograph Freeride World Tour 2022, produced in 100 pieces, to the delight of aficionados of mountain slopes and snow sports.
Now the most demanding freeride skiing and snowboarding competition ever known, and attracting the best athletes from across the world, the Freeride World Tour will be celebrating its fifteenth anniversary in 2022.
After fifteen seasons of challenges, lines to create with ever-increasing inventiveness and technical mastery, and snow-covered mountain slopes which are more impressive with each descent, this time, the Freeride World Tour boasts a new stage in Spain, as well as a new format for the Qualifier Tour.
As is customary and to celebrate the renewal of its collaboration with the Freeride World Tour, Alpina is presenting a dedicated limited edition, which this year is called the Alpiner Quartz Chronograph and which will be produced in only 100 pieces.
A descendent of the famous Alpiner4, created by Alpina in 1938 and bringing together for the first time the 4 key features of a sports watch – anti-magnetic, shock resistant, waterproof and made of stainless steel – the Alpiner Quartz Chronograph Freeride World Tour 2022 proudly pays tribute to it by reproducing these fundamental principles, to which it has added a chronograph.
A sporting complication par excellence, it is differentiated on the black dial by three counters enhanced by a silver circle, in whose centre the hands turn, covered in a luminescent material, echoing the hour and minute hands.
At 12 o’clock, instead of the famous Alpina red triangle – which finishes the seconds hand here – the Freeride World Tour logo sits proudly. Representing decidedly and obviously alpine peaks, its natural place is assuredly on this time piece, the Alpiner collection being, since Alpina began, dedicated to the alpine world.
A 42 mm steel case houses everything, fitted to a three-link alternation of satin and polished links, echoing it. On the back of the watch, freeride fans can admire the legendary Bec des Rosses engraving, alongside the Freeride World Tour logo and the limited edition number X/100.
The Alpiner Quartz Chronograph Freeride World Tour 2022 is driven by a quartz movement with autonomy of four and a half years, depending on use. This calibre is nearly totally shock resistant and guarantees chronometric accuracy far greater than that of a mechanical movement, for a fraction of its price. This movement also offers a date, a functional additional and useful for everyday use.
