Baselworld 2019: Alpina Introduces A New Quartz Range to its Alpiner CollectionFlavio Salvador
Sports watch inventors Alpina has introduced a new quartz model taking inspiration from an automatic 1950’s model and bringing it right up to date within the contemporary Alpiner line.
The new watch features the clean lines, essential dial design, and the intrinsic quality, reliability and finishes that distinguish the Swiss Manufacture.
Following on from the success of its first sports watch called the “Block Uhr” in 1933, featuring a rigid and reliable steel case and a patented new type of crown, Alpina launched the concept of ‘4’ giving birth to the first Swiss sports watch in 1938, a combination of four key characteristics that Alpina deems essential to create a sports watch: anti-magnetic, anti-shock, water-resistant and stainless.
The Alpiner Quartz fills the need for a classical sporty watch at an entry-level price within the Alpiner collection. The AL-240 quartz movement features hours, minutes, seconds and a date window at 6 o’clock all protected by a scratch-resistant convex sapphire crystal fixed in a 42mm diameter case and water resistance up to 100m/330ft.
