THE ALPINA COMTESSE LADY COLLECTION
In 1963 Alpina first launched its COMTESSE ladies collection with automatic movements and this year Alpina re-introduces this important line to mark its long tradition in the design of fine ladies sport watches, which began in the 1920’s.
The new range of Alpina COMTESSE watches is a delightful balance of sportiness and elegance. The COMTESSE line embodies the concept of Swiss Alpine Chic, which recalls the timeless Alpine glamour of the St. Moritz style to the fullest: Character, Luxury and Simplicity. Ladies will love the elegant yet strong presence of this watch. The new collection consists of 5 watches, which range from a stainless steel model to a yellow gold two-tone model with a diamonds bezel and 11 diamonds on the dial. All models feature a refined guilloche pattern of the Alpina triangle symbol on the dial and are 100M/330ft water-resistant.

It comes in three versions of dials, silver plain or with red triangle guilloché decoration and applied diamonds indexes, and comes also with or without 59 diamonds on the bezel. The stainless steel version comes with a choice of a grey or white genuine leather strap or a stainless steel bracelet.

ALPINA, THE ORIGINAL SWISS SPORT WATCH
ALPINE SPORTS WATCH MANUFACTURING – SINCE 1883
Alpina, famous for its red triangle signature, is an independent, family-owned fine watchmaking manufacture based in Geneva, Switzerland. Founded in 1883, Alpina’s watchmaking history spans more than 130 years. A true pioneer of the Swiss watchmaking industry, Alpina has been the source of numerous innovations, patents and calibers. Alpina invented the concept of the sport watch, as we know it today, with the birth of its legendary Alpina 4 in 1938. Faithful to its long tradition of creating mechanical calibers, Alpina manufactures, in its Geneva-based Manufacture, four in-house movements in-house: the Tourbillon AL-980, the World Timer AL-718, the Automatic Regulator AL-950 and the Small Date Automatic AL-710. Alpina’s mission is to design and engineer luxury sport watches that operate with the greatest precision and reliability possible in the most demanding sporting environments, like the Alps.
