Alpina Renewal of the partnership with the French Ski Federation
Official watch supplier of the FFS since 2016, Alpina re-enlists for another two years.
Born in the Swiss Alps, Alpina has always shared common values with skiing, a sport in which technical competence, precision, perseverance and respect for the mountains are essential. Official watch supplier of the French Ski Federation since 2016, the brand has shown its commitment and affirmed its support for the FFS and its athletes. Their excellent results in the World Cup and the most recent winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang only served to strengthen the decision to renew the partnership for the next two years.

Oliver Van Lanschot Hubrecht, Brand Manager: "We are proud of this partnership with the French Ski Federation, renowned for its sports results and for organizing World Class competitions and events. Through this partnership I would like to bring our contribution to promote this genuine and wonderful sport along with the FFS. Being ourselves an alpine brand, we consider our duty and responsibility to transmit the alpine sports values as well as the importance of respecting the mountain environment".
Michel Vion, President of the French Ski Federation: "Alpina, the Swiss watch brand born in the Alps, is synonym of precision and excellence, values shared by the French Ski teams which also promote the same universe of alpine mountains. This collaboration with the Swiss watchmaker Alpina confirms once again the attractiveness of the French Ski Federation and its teams".
