Inspired by an Alpiner automatic model from the 1950’s, the new Alpiner Manufacture from Alpina Watches is proposed with a stainless steel case of 41.5mm diameter, and a vintage looking cream dial with applied pearl black numerals.
It features also luminous hours and minutes hands and hours markers. The “Glass box” sapphire crystal is scratch resistant and you will be able to admire the beauty of the manufacture movement through the transparent case-back. 5 ATM/50m/150ft water-resistant, the new Alpiner Manufacture is delivered with a dark brown genuine leather strap.
The transparent case-back of the 41.5mm case features the highly decorated AL-710 caliber. The in-house AL-710 automatic caliber can be considered as a particular refinement. The form of the black-coated ball bearing rotor that oscillates back and forth is an unmistakable reminder of the significant pendulum rotor of the Alpina 582 Manufacture caliber introduced in 1949.
Beautifully decorated with Côtes de Genève and circular graining, the piece has a diameter of 30.5 millimeters. All the bridges and cocks are beveled and rhodium-finished. When the watch has been fully wound, 42 hours of power reserve are available. The large glucydur balance has a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour.
