In 1938 Alpina presented the Alpina 4, one of the first modern Swiss sport watch. The 4 in the name was used to remark the 4 distinctive features of a sport watch: 1) Antimagnetic, 2) Antishock, 3) Water-resistant and 4) made of Stainless Steel.
In 2014, Alpina revives the Alpina 4 concept with its new Alpiner 4 collection comprising a bi-compax Chronograph and a GMT/24H model.
The Alpina Alpiner 4 Chronograph promises resistance and performance.
Engineered with the same principles and designed with the same codes as the Chronograph version, the Alpiner 4 GMT/24H features a new and easy-to-use GMT functionality allowing the user to set the local time by independently moving the hour hand from hour to hour.
The 24H hand displays the home time and indicates if it is day or night.
Both the Alpiner 4 Chronograph and the Alpiner 4 GMT come with two dial variants, black or silver, and can be fitted with a stainless steel bracelet or an alligator strap. The automatic movements, the AL-860 for the Chronograph and the AL-550 for the GMT/24H, beat at 28,800 vibrations per hours with a power reserve of 38 hours.
