October 2009 – Geneva – ALPINA, Swiss manufacturer of high quality sports watches based in Planles-Ouates, Geneva, is honored to present one of its most discrete creations so far: the impressive Extreme Chrono Double Digit. This new automatic chronograph features a discrete yet outstanding design and a perfectly balanced dial with a bi-compax configuration.
The specific and technical design of this new Extreme Chrono Double Digit capitalizes on the strong brand philosophy of ALPINA: highest level of accuracy, extremely high readability, shock resistance, sturdiness and reliability.
The timepiece, with a bold but comfortable case diameter of 46 mm, is featured in two different case versions: one in stainless steel, and one “Full Black” made out of black PVD steel, both surrounded by a PVD black coated bezel and connected by six ALPINA screws. Two options for the dial finishing, one with red counters for a perfect readability, and a second one with a full mat black dial for the perfect styling. It features clear, finely brushed steel ALPINA Double Digit-indexes. The iconic ‘Extreme’ design elements remain – along with an even bolder and more elaborate dial design. The chrono counters, perfectly balanced in the center of the dial, surround a clear-cut, centralized date indicator. The automatic chronograph caliber AL-850 features a black PVD signature ALPINA oscillating weight, which is visible through the exhibition case back. Both front and reverse sides are equipped with sapphire crystals.
Altogether, the new ALPINA Extreme Chrono Double Digit forms a highly sophisticated and long-awaited addition to the stunning ALPINA Extreme series, and will delight those who are fond of fierce sensations …
