The watchmaker symbolized by a red triangle with an openworked central dot offers a watch with a sporty, robust and ergonomic identity, which displays time split into sectors for information that is as fast too read as it is precise.

To design a versatile watch with a personality strongly anchored in the world of sports, the ideal companion for everyday adventurers, Alpina drew inspiration from its own heritage. Indeed, the Geneva-based brand, symbolized by a red “pierced” triangle, has chosen to take up the spirit of the 2005 Avalanche Extreme Regulator model and redesign it according to contemporary codes. Called the Alpiner Extreme Regulator, this limited edition of 888 pieces presented at Geneva Watch Days is a great success.

Flanked by a round bezel fitted with six triangular-headed screws and water-resistant to 200 meters, the cushion-shaped brushed steel case is now offered in a diameter of 41mm (compared to 48 previously) for a thickness of 12mm, dimensions that appeal to a wider public. It houses the AL-650 automatic caliber, a 4hz motor that is partially visible through the transparent caseback and provides 38 hours of power reserve.

The dial plays with contrasts and reliefs, between the different finishes and colors, between the disk covered with a dark gray triangle pattern and the azure slate blue counters. Curved by a matching flange and luminescent baton hour markers, the hours are indicated at 10 o’clock and the seconds at 6 o’clock, while the minutes, as a regulator, are placed at the center. This particular display allows for a precise and easy reading of the time, in all circumstances. For maximum comfort on the wrist, the integrated strap of the Alpiner Extreme Regulator is made of textured rubber in a checkerboard pattern and fitted with a steel folding clasp.
