With the launch of its first in-house Manufacture Flyback Chronograph at Baselworld 2015, Alpina celebrated an important première in its 132 years history. With its AL-760 patented “Direct Flyback Technology” automatic flyback caliber, Alpina not only introduced its first in-house chronograph caliber, but also innovated and ingeniously simplified the flyback and return to zero mechanism. As a 2016 pre-Baselworld novelty, Alpina is now proud to present its new black AL-760 Alpiner 4 Manufacture Flyback Chronograph.
With its its striking appearance, the new “Full Black” Alpiner 4 Manufacture Flyback Chronograph remains true to its successful predecessor, but demonstrates a more aggressive and distinctive personality of its own. The new model features an intense black PVD coated case made out of stainless steel. The black dial with beige luminous pearl black applied indexes, matching the luminous beige hands, provides a unique and powerful design. This horological masterpiece exhibits the contemporary essence of the Alpina Flyback Chronograph design, and integrates the 4 features of the “Alpina 4” sport watch: antimagnetic, water-resistant, antishock and stainless.
Al this and much more goes to make up the new “Alpiner 4 Manufacture Flyback Chronograph”. Its new look evokes dynamism and clarity. Like all the Alpina watches, this one too was shaped into a precision instrument, which features ergonomically shaped chronograph push-pieces, screw-down winding and setting crown, and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. It can withstand a water pressure of up to 10 atmospheres, equivalent to a diving depth of 100 metres.
Following a long tradition, the screwed steel case back is decorated with the familiar Alpina logo.
Looking at the right-hand side of the case, connoisseurs will immediately notice that the crown and push-piece are positioned on a straight line, despite the calibre AL-760’s modular construction. To finish this watch, an elegant black genuine leather strap with beige stitching ensures safety and comfort on the wrist.
