Alpina, famous for its red triangle signature, is an independent, family-owned fine watchmaking manufacture based in Geneva, Switzerland. Founded in 1883, Alpina's watchmaking history spans more than 130 years. A true pioneer of the Swiss fine watchmaking industry, Alpina has been the source of numerous innovations, patents, calibers and chronometers. Alpina invented the concept of the sport watch as we know it today, with the birth of its legendary Alpina 4 in 1938. Alpina's mission is to conceive and create watches that are not just sporty but elegant, that operate with the greatest precision and reliability possible, in the most demanding environments, like the Alps.
