Alpina has been creating gent’s watches since the company was founded in 1883. Since then, technological advantages and methods of manufacture have evolved with the growth of the brand, allowing for limitless innovations when it comes to creating the perfect wrist companion for professionals or individuals with an interest in extreme sports. Moving with styles of the 21st century, Alpina watches for men always manage to remain at the very forefront of haute horology, whilst boasting ultimate style.
No matter what the man's need for a sporty, powerful wristwatch are – what will always be a welcomed design feature in any Alpina watch is the iconic brand logo which comes stamped to the centre of every dial and also to some straps like the smooth black rubber band seen in some of the diver’s models. The red triangle emblem was born just after the company began putting their name onto their independently developed mechanical movements. This motif is often found on the base of the central seconds hands in many gent’s Alpina watches.
In 1938 Alpina introduced the legendary sports watch with the announcement of the Alpina 4. The Swiss watch manufacture deemed 4 key features necessary in the creation of every gent’s sports watch. It needed to be waterproof, anti magnetic, anti shock, and made from stainless steel. In 1959 the company created the Alpina 4 Chronograph with telemeter feature.
Alpina pilots watches are built for professional flyers as well as those gentlemen who just prefer the look of a vintage inspired aviation timepiece. Take for example, the Alpina Startimer Pilot Chronograph watch, with its sleek stainless steel bezel and smart black leather strap. The chronograph dials are easy to operate thanks to a pair of beautifully refined pushers at 2 and 4 o'clock on the bezel. As a gent’s watch, this design combines legibility with profound reliability. Fitted with an in-house manufactured movement, the wearer is promised round the clock accuracy, thanks to a precision-assembled set of components which make up the beating heart of the timepiece.
For those gentlemen who like to take to the water whilst on vacation, a sleek wristwatch with a 300 metre water resistance would be a fine thing. Alpina created just the wristwatch – with a coloured unidirectional rotating bezel and large printed scale for easy referencing. Comfort is paramount in any gentleman’s timekeeping tool, so Alpina have equipped this timepiece with a supple black rubber strap, embossed with the iconic Alpina logo etched across its surface, along with stainless steel fastenings to finish with.
