The launch of the Alpina Alpiner Manufacture

Clean lines, distinctive hands and unmistakable Swiss quality. Reliability and perfect finishing are combined in the new Alpina Alpiner Manufacture AL-710. The watch may be inspired by an automatic Alpiner model from the fifties with its vintage-looking creamy dial, but the clear design gives the watch a contemporary look.

The transparent case-back contains the AL-170 Alpiner Manufacture movement. The shape of the black coated rotor that oscillates back and forth, is a reminder from the in 1949 introduced rotor found in the Alpine 582 Manufacture caliber. The automatic movement, decorated with Côtes de Genève motif and round granulation, has a power reserve of 42 hours.

Only 134 components (that’s really not that much for an automatic watch with date display) were used to create the Alpine Alpiner Manufacture AL-710, which houses in a 41,5 mm steel case. A vintage-looking, creamy colored dial with black pearl numerals covers the in-house movement. Three central hands indicate the hours, minutes and seconds. The date is presented in a display at 6 o’clock. Selling price starts at 4,195.00 euro.
