    Alpina Watches presents its new additions to the popular Alpiner 4 Collection

    After successfully developing the “Block Uhr” in 1933, in 1938, Alpina Watches put forth the concept of 4 which in turn gave birth to the first Swiss sports watch, the Alpiner 4. This concept is based on the combination of four key characteristics that Alpina deems essential to create a sports watch; anti-magnetic, anti-shock, water-resistant and stainless.

    The Concept of 4

    These features are vital to the adventurous Alpina watch user, they allow for a free use of the watch without worrying about its continuous performance. This concept was in fact the vision of Alpina founder Gottlieb Hauser, allowing the Alpiner 4 to tackle the entire Alpina sports’ universe, from mountain climbing and skiing to alpine lake diving.

    The new Alpiner 4 Automatic

    Following the 2016 launch of the automatic line, Alpina introduces three new versions. The watches come in two sets: all stainless steel or stainless steel on leather bracelet. The iconic “glacier blue” dial welcomes a new variation, a contemporary mix of black with red on the outer rim, accompanied by the matching black leather strap with red lining.

    The famous red triangle adorns the seconds hand and the 12 o’clock mark on the bi-directional turning bezel, while the Alpina 1883 logo is engraved in the 44mm back case of the watch. The date window is displayed at 3 o’clock and the luminova-treated indexes are delicately placed over the sunray-finished dial. The AL-525 automatic caliber offers a 38-hour power-reserve, the stainless steel case allows for a 10 ATM water-resistance as well as the other three main features of the Concept 4 anti-magnetic, anti-shock, and stainless.

    This new model enriches the Automatic line of the Alpiner 4 Collection, giving Alpina enthusiasts more options all the while ensuring a fully operational and performant watch under any weather or terrain conditions.

    Looks absolutely perfect but I'd prefer smaller 40-42 mm size...

    Completely agree with this. I have an Alpiner 4 chronograph and love everything about it, but really wish it was 40-42... Especially with the white dial.

    Either way looks like another great piece from Alpina!

    Same here - I tried one and it was just too big for me - which is a shame as I love the design.

    It's a bigger watch but wears a bit smaller and lighter than the GMT 4. I never liked SS bezels before but that completely changed with this Alpiner 4. The bracelet with butterfly clasp tapers to about 18mm so comfortable to wear.

    I am really liking the SS bezel.
    I've handled it a few times and will probably add it to my collection. That blue dial is really something.
