Alpina A Fine Watch Club Offer
Alpina opens the doors to its museum and offers Fine Watch Club members some rare, never-worn models.
Founded in 1883, Alpina has always been guided by its pioneer spirit and its initial goal to make luxury sports watches at affordable price point, notably since the Alpina 4 in 1983. The brand made headlines with the launch of the first Swiss Made connected watch, but also with the presentation of its own manufacture flyback chronograph movement, entirely developed in-house. This summer, Alpina and its sister brands Frédérique Constant and Atelier de Monaco have done it again, inaugurating an interactive museum located in a new wing of its manufacture. Open on reservation only, it will welcome in November members of the Fine Watch Club, the international club for watch owners.

In an effort to add a more educational and playful aspect to traditional manufacture visits, Alpina has staged different phases of the manufacturing process of a watch through varying interactive spaces. In this brand-new space, the decor is seamless and allows for a varied and fascinating visit. And it’s not only the creation process that’s explained and exhibited—the Manufacture Experience allows visitors to see the brand’s historic models, which counts a large number of fans around the world. The Alpina style is recognizable and has an avid following in search of a few models in particular—a following who will undoubtedly want to join the community of the Fine Watch Club.

Firmly planted in Geneva, the Fine Watch Club has great relationships with surrounding manufactures. In light of the Alpina museum and its models now rare and often sought-after, the Club’s management convinced Alpina to offer the possibility for Fine Watch Club members to acquire certain historic models, never worn, from the museum. Better for sports watch enthusiasts to enjoy these models rather than let them gather dust. These Alpina watches are evidently no longer available in stores. The Fine Watch Club has selected five references, of which only a few models remain. It’s a call to all collectors! Members also have the opportunity to acquire these rare models at extremely interesting prices—almost half off of what they used to be when sold in store. A lucky few will be able to obtain the automatic chronograph Sailing Yacht Timer, the Regulator Startimer Pilot Automatic, the WorldTimer Manufacture or the Extreme Diver 1000.
