Thriving in the wild embrace of alpine extremes, the Alpina Alpiner Extreme Automatic Freeride World Tour is a rugged companion forged in the spirit of daring adventure. As the official timekeeper of the Freeride World Tour (FWT) for six consecutive years, Alpina understands the demands of these exceptional athletes who push the limits of what’s possible on snow and skis.
The 2024 FWT season will see 53 riders in four categories embark on a global competition, conquering challenging slopes in Andorra, Canada, the newly added Georgia, Austria, and culminating in the legendary Bec des Rosses in Verbier, Switzerland. Sharing this passion for adventure, Alpina unveils the Alpiner Extreme Automatic Freeride World Tour, a timepiece built to withstand the rigors of competition and resonate with the adventurous spirit.
Reduced to the essentials, this automatic watch prioritizes functionality. A sturdy 41 x 42.5 mm stainless steel case houses a reliable Swiss caliber that beats at a steady 4 Hz (28,800 vph). The black dial offers exceptional legibility with luminescent hands and markers for clarity in challenging lighting conditions. The iconic Freeride World Tour logo sits proudly at 6 o’clock, a subtle nod to the partnership and the athletes it supports.
Built for the untamed, the Alpiner Extreme Automatic Freeride World Tour prioritizes durability. The sunbrushed steel case resists scratches and dents, while the durable rubber strap withstands temperature extremes and unexpected encounters. The strategically placed crown protector ensures easy adjustment even with gloved hands-a critical feature for athletes navigating harsh environments.
A touch of heritage, discreetly woven into the design, is the Alpina logo. The dial and counterweight of the seconds hand subtly echo the brand’s signature triangle, symbolizing the alpine peaks that inspire its creations.
The Alpina Alpiner Extreme Automatic Freeride World Tour is a symbol of pushing boundaries, embracing challenges and thriving in the face of extremes. It’s a testament to the shared spirit of adventure between Alpina and the FWT athletes, a timepiece built to accompany them on their extraordinary journeys.
