Alpina Limited Edition Chronograph Hits the Slopes

Alpina re-affirms its deep connections to the sporting world by introducing an eye-catching, affordably priced quartz chronograph in partnership with the snow sport Freeride World Tour. 

The new limited edition Alpiner Quartz Chronograph Freeride World Tour 2022 commemorates Alpina’s fifth year as a partner of the ski and snowboarding competition series. 

To be produced as a limited edition of 100 pieces, the 42mm steel watch is designed to recall the original 1938 Alpiner4, complete with Alpina’s red triangle logo at the base of the seconds hand. Like the original Alpiner4, this new model also combines the four primary features that typically define a sports watch: anti-magnetism, shock resistance, water resistance and a steel case.   

This limited model, however, incorporates the Freeride World Tour ‘alpine peaks’ logo at 12 o’clock and on its solid caseback (atop an engraving of the Swiss extreme skiing mountain Bec De Rosses). The watch also adds a chronograph, which is displayed here on the black dial via three counters, each framed by a silver circle. 

Alpina touts an impressive four-and-a-half-year battery life for its quartz movement. 

Price: $1,295.
