Alpina Goes on Tour

From JustLuxe content partner iW Magazine

Alpina’s new Alpiner Extreme Automatic Freeride World Tour 2023 is the official tour watch of the Freeride World Tour (FWT), a five-stage skiing and snowboarding competition.

Alpina’s new Alpiner Extreme Automatic Freeride World Tour 2023.

Available this year within Alpina’s full collection, the 41mm by 42.5mm cushion-case watch (with a round bezel) proudly displays the Tour’s logo on the existing Alpiner Extreme patterned dial.

The pattern itself mimics Alpina’s own triangle logo, a natural tie-in to the Freeride World Tour and one that echoes the Alpine summits for which the brand is named. Alpina’s long-standing red triangle seconds-hand counterweight just underscores the Alpina-FWT partnership.

Alpina sun brushes the steel case and attaches it to the wrist with a black rubber strap. The crown is located at 3 o’clock and has been fitted with a rubber grip for ease of use even if the owner is wearing ski gloves. Inside, Alpina places its automatic caliber AL-525, a Sellita-based movement beating at 4Hz (28,800 vph), which is visible through the sapphire case back. 

Price: $1,895
