2012/12/11 - Alpina's All-new Racing Chrono Big Date Models


What are the things in life that make our hearts race faster? A beautiful moment, a look from that person on the other side of the room, a sudden and impetuous journey into the unknown...these are the things that make life exciting, fascinating and worth living.

It boils down to those things about which we are most passionate, and if there's one thing that makes the hair stand up on the back of a man's neck, it's speed. A fast car, a sleek, fast boat, even a fast horse; once speed is involved, passions are stirred.

Always bearing in mind the elements in life that stir the spirit, Alpina is delighted to present two new Racing Chrono Big Date models. Everything about these watches speaks of speed and calls out to their owners to indulge their passion for racing.

The three-part, round, 45 mm-wide stainless steel case with a fixed bezel sits comfortably on the wrist. The superior sapphire crystal gives a beautifully clear view of the striking matt black dial.

The sleek and stylish white luminous hands stand out against the dial, and the silver indexes are hand applied by the finest craftsmen in the industry. Alpina's signature red triangle is of course located at the base of the second hand. The designers at Alpina have also added red accents at the tip of the second hand and at 5-second intervals around the chrono counter, superbly integrated into the watch face at the 6 o'clock position.

In yet another departure from traditional watch designs, the extra-large date display has been set at 12 o'clock.

Do you feel like diving in? Go ahead. The new Alpina Racing Chrono Big Date is water resistant to 10 ATM (more than 300 feet), and whether you choose the model with the functional rubber strap or the striking metal bracelet, there's nothing about this watch that will dampen your impulses or discourage your passions.

When you find a watch this innovative, this technologically advanced and as inspirational as these new models, you expect to find a chunky price tag attached. Alpina is delighted to announce, therefore, that the new Alpina Racing Chrono Big Date with rubber strap will go on sale at just €795, and if you want the striking metal bracelet, the price still sits at a delightful €895. Now that's a great way to raise passions!
