Since its inception in 1883, Alpina has been a brand known for its horological innovation and the desire to constantly exceed the standards in the watch-making world, in both their in-house manufactured automatic movements, and ever-evolving horological smart watches. Standing as leaders in technological development, and determined to remain at the forefront of horological advancements, Alpina has released five in house manufactured movements with the Tourbillion, Regulator, World Timer, Small Date Automatic and the Flyback Chronograph Manufacture since 2002. This makes Alpina one of a few select independent Swiss watch brands that completely develops and produces their own in-house calibers.
Within Australia, Alpina is an increasingly popular amongst professionals and watch enthusiasts alike as the brands reputation for functionality and reliability continues to gain traction. Committed to manufacturing robust timepieces that perform to the highest precision in the most demanding of situations, Alpina watches have been specifically engineered to withstand the most extreme of conditions. With the exceptional watches for pilots and divers, Alpina has purposely designed and hand assembled each timepiece to ensure that they function from the deepest depths of the ocean to the highest mountain peaks. This is a testament to Alpina’s mission—to create extremely reliable professional sports watches, a legacy very much inspired by Alpina’s founder, Gottlieb Hauser. Alpina has become the watch of choice amongst many of the 8th Avenue Watch Co team members, a testament to the brands reputation. You can find Alpina watches across all 8th Avenue Watch Co retail stores, and right here at our online store.
