The AlpinerX is a smartwatch combining an analog and a digital screen, staying faithful to Alpina's strong watchmaking heritage.
What we’ve done so far is to take our initial idea to the stage of a working prototype: the result is a strong and beautiful Swiss timepiece packed with a wide range of connected functions tailored to please passionate outdoors and urban explorers as well as watchmaking aficionados.Last updated:
The functions are split into 3 essential pillars (Environment, Body and Time and Notification).
They include the following:
Environment: Altitude, Barometer, Connected GPS, Compass, UV Indicator, Temperature
Body: Activity Tracking, Dynamic Coach, Sleep Monitoring, Smart Alarms (Get-Active Alerts, Sleep Alarm)
Time and Notification: Always On-Time and date (Hours, Minutes, Seconds, Date), Calls & Messages Notifications, Time Recorder (Stopwatch, Timer, Workouts), Worldtimer

The bezel is in stainless steel and scratch-resistant like other Alpina watches. Even if some scratches appear after a few years, it is possible to have the bezel polished in an After Sales Service Center during revision (i.e. after 3-4 years).Last updated:
Fiberglass is scratch-resistant and lighter than stainless steel.
The bezel and caseback on the other hand are in stainless steel.
The combination of fiberglass and stainless steel gives an optimal weight, a full stainless steel case would be much heavier.
We are studying Titanium, but lead-time will be long and there are technical issues to sort out. Fiberglass has already been featured on Alpina Seastrong watches and the response has been very good.
Another advantage of fiberglass is that it is solid, it's not coated, so the colour won't wear off.Last updated:
The AlpinerX will be delivered with our typical Alpina luxury box.
Please note that we always get positive reactions and many customers want to have a nice box to keep their watch. It is part of the experience.
At the same time, we will study a travel case option. The latter might be offered later as a stretch goal.Last updated:
