Sailing Regatta Chrono
Alpina Sailing Collection
As part of a strong range of new introductions, Swiss Watch Manufacturer Alpina Genève is proud to launch the new Sailing Collection, inspired by the close collaboration with the Italian Extreme 40 Catamaran team Niceforyou.
Emphasizing on its strong commitment to the spectacular Extreme Sailing Series, Alpina Geneve developed the automatic Yacht Timer caliber AL-880 in-house, based on a modified SW500 automatic movement that is Sellita's take on the ETA Valjoux 7750. The caliber is encapsulated in a new, stainless steel 30 ATM water-resistant case, of which the shape resembles Alpina case designs from the past. This new model with sailing countdown function is available either with a white or a black dial. In addition to the new Yacht Timer version, Alpina introduces another attractively priced version the Alpina Sailing Automatic with 3 hands and a date window, with similar case and dial design. All Alpina Sailing timepieces are available on rubber strap, metal bracelet or metal mesh bracelet, for absolute comfort and security in the most extreme situations.
The Yacht timer takes the form of little circles that move from one color to another as time goes down. racing Sailors don't have time to look at little hands, so the circle and color system makes seeing how much time you have left at a glance fairly simple. It also leaves the dial open.
Coming in two dial colors (black or white), the Sailing Collection Chronograph will come with your choice of either a metal Milanese (mesh) bracelet or a rubber strap.
