Alpina TPT 408
In 1901, the name "Alpina" was registered as a trademark and from the beginning, it was decided that the Alpina Brand would only appear on the dials of high-end watches. A leap in time takes us to 1938, when Alpina unveiled the Alpina 4. The number “4” stood for four important quality criteria that were united in these watches: anti-magnetism, water-resistance, the incorporation of an Incabloc anti-shock system and a tough stainless steel case. Retrospectively, it can be said that sports watches were the main focus and biggest success of Alpina. Growth was sustained until the quartz crisis. The overwhelming emergence of electronic watches left only little room for the brand, which continued as best as it could to bring together the remaining “Alpinists” and keep alive the spirit of the golden age of the venerable brand. In 2002, Alpina was sold to Aletta and Peter Stas, co-founders of Frédérique Constant. A new collection was presented at Baselworld 2003, setting the stage for the brand’s revival and comeback to the forefront of the watch making scene.
