About Alpina watches

  • Rare vintage Alpina from the same period and with calibre 586 which Alpina also used to their Gernam military Kriegsmarine – that watch was named ALPINA KM 586. This edition is a nice example of a German military made by Alpina and from the very exact period as Alpina had a innovative relationship with the watch company called Rolex.
  • This watch is considered a rare collectable watch both in KM and standard edition.
  • All the work on this watch was done in-house at Geneva the watch making capital of the world.
  • The watch can be worn every day or just added to a collection. This watch offers great value for the money. 100% all round original
  • In 1938 Alpina introduces the legendary “alpina 4“.The number “4” alluded to the four essential qualities of a sports watch:
  1. Antimagnetic
  2. Water-resistant ,
  3. Anti-shock and
  4. A stainless steel highly robust case.

 

  • The alpina “4“ philosphy revolutionised the sports watch, and the robust-to-the-extreme “alpina 4“ became the watch of choiche for sport and professional activites in unnatural, and potentially dangerous, environments for Man: the mountain, the air and the sea. The alpina ”4“ was equipped with one of the sturdiest watch “engines“ of its generation, the hand-wound alpina 592 calibre.
  • In 1948 the school of watchmaking at the cantonal polytechnic in Biel chooses the 12-ligne hand-wound alpina caliber 592 to serve as the school’s didactic caliber. This choice underscores the fact that this movement was especially precise, reliable and robust.
  • In 1953 Alpina celebrates its 70th anniversary with the introduction of the “alpina 70” sport watch, encasing the 592 and 598 calibers. The “alpina 70” boasted the 4 alpina sport features (anti-shock, anti-magnetic, water resistant, stainless-steel case), and a beautiful faceted golden “Alpiner” adorned its dial.
