In 1883 Goltlieb Hauser founded the Swiss watch brand “Alpina” Union Horologere in Bienne Switzerland. He wanted to create a brand known for its high quality calibre movements and technical innovations in manufacturing.To this day Alpina watches have continued with its founders philosophy to produce high quality calibre timepieces of innovative design.
In 2006 Alpina watches moved its manufacturing facility to purpose built facility in Plan-les-Ouates, Geneva where all of their watches either automatic or quartz are assembled by hand. Each watch is put together, one at a time,carefully and in a dust-free climate-controlled enviroment where it goes through strict quality control checks throughout its manufacture, assuring you of the highest quality.
Aviation has been part of Alpina’s DNA for almost a century. In 1921, Alpina became a renowned supplier of time instruments for military pilots and air forces so it’s only natural that they are sponsers of the famous
“Red Bull Air Race World Championship”.
