In 2014, Alpina launched its Alpiner 4 collection, according to a traditional version from 1938 and integrating the “four fundamental characteristics” that specify a sports watch: anti-magnetism, shock resistance, water-resistance, and stain-resistance. This season, the newest adds two new associates to the Alpina 4 household, the Alpiner 4 Automatic and also the The Alpiner 4 Automatic, the initial simple, three-hand date model in the group, includes a 44-mm stainless steel case plus a bidirectional rotating bezel that can be used for timing events. The opinion has a convex, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, a threaded crown, and a solid, engraved caseback.Its sunray-finished dial has implemented luminous indices, luminous hands, plus a 3 o’clock date window. The movement is Alpina’s automatic Caliber AL-525, with 26 jewels, a 28,800-vph frequency and 38-hour power book. Three dial colours are accessible — silvered, black, and Alpina’s trademark “glacier blue,” which was reintroduced with this model. All of these Automatics come on stitched leather straps, black or brown, with red lining.Like the first Alpiner 4 GMT from 2014, the new GMT Alpiner 4 GMT “Business Timer” is powered by the Sellita-based Alpina Caliber AL-550, that includes automatic winding and also the same number of jewels, frequency, and power book as the movement at the automatic. This movement controls a GMT (second-time-zone) function which enables the user to set the local time by independently moving the hour hand in one-hour increments while the red, arrow-tipped 24-hour hand consistently displays the home time. The view gets its nickname from the red-and-blue “Pepsi” GMT scale round the dial, whose colour scheme reflects business-opening hours round the Earth, allowing a traveler to test at a glance if his home time zone is open for business. The steel case is 44 millimeters in diameter and contains a bidirectional turning bezel; the dials — available here in black or silver — are sunray-finished with applied luminous indices and luminous-coated nickel hands.
