Like you will find with a number of the established Swiss watch brands, Alpina has been around since what pretty much feels like the beginning of time. Their innovation starts in their workspace and filters down to all of their timepieces. Alpina has, for a long time, been the watch of choice for air force pilots, divers, the navy, the military, and of course, mountaineers, otherwise known as alpinists. The four characteristics of any reliable sports watch that shaped the style and quality of the Alpina watches were that they should all be antimagnetic, anti-shock, water-resistant, and be made from stainless steel so that their durability and reliability would never be compromised.
