What makes a good watch great? Think finesse, versatility, and durability — all of which happen to be the hallmarks of the Alpina Alpiner Extreme Automatic. A refreshed take on the classic timepiece, this model in green, exclusive to Huckberry, is considered the ultimate outdoor companion. Whether for hiking enthusiasts, frequent travelers, or anyone who can’t quite satisfy their wanderlust, this watch is made with sturdy stainless steel and features a triple-layered construction. It begins with a raised bezel, along with a rubber-wrapped crown on the right side and a smart steel accent on the left.
Powered by the Alpina AL-525 automatic caliber with a power reserve of approximately 38 hours, the Alpiner Extreme offers 200 meters of water resistance, should you venture into damp spots every now and then. The handsome green dial is positively striking with its triangle pattern that brings to mind alpine peaks. The indexes, hour, and minute hands are filled with Super-LumiNova for visibility at night. A polished silver second hand boasts Alpina’s signature red triangle.
Alpina’s Alpiner Extreme Automatic watch features a green textured rubber strap that matches the dial color, conveying a sleek and streamlined look. The end result is a timepiece that is at once sharp, refined, sporty, and sophisticated. As suitable for a walk in the woods as a stroll downtown, it offers the clear benefit of enduring versatility.
