Alpina’s new Alpina Extreme Automatic Freeride World Tour 2023 is the official Tour watch of the Freeride World Tour (FWT), a five-stage skiing and snowboarding competition.
Alpina’s new Alpina Extreme Automatic Freeride World Tour 2023.
Available within Alpina’s entire collection this year, the 41mm by 42.5mm cushion-case watch (with a circular bezel) proudly displays the Tour logo on the existing Alpina Extreme patterned dial.
The pattern itself mimics Alpina’s own triangle logo, a natural tie-in with the Freeride World Tour and which echoes the Alpine summit for which the brand is named. Alpina’s enduring red triangle second-hand counterweight only underscores the Alpina-FWT partnership.
The Alpina Sun has a brushed steel case and attaches to the wrist with a black rubber strap. The crown is located at 3 o’clock and is fitted with a rubber grip for ease of use even when the owner is wearing ski gloves. Inside, Alpina houses its automatic caliber AL-525, a Selita-based movement beating at 4Hz (28,800 vph), visible through the sapphire case back.
