LIMITED EDITION. As part of the “Reach your Summit” campaign, Alpina is proud to announce the successful launch of an AlpinerX watch into space, reaching an altitude of 33’793 meters going higher than the planet earth's top summit: the Mount Everest at 8’848 meters. Once again Alpina pushed the limits and maxed the use of the altimeter function on the watch.
In partnership with “Sent into space", a start-up company specialized in Space photography, based in the region of Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England, a video of the launch presents the project as the watch was filmed on its way up to space and down again to planet earth after a 3 hour flight. The film offers breathtaking images of the AlpinerX with planet earth as a backdrop. The watch was then recovered by “Sent into space” 60KM away from the launch location. It is now visible in the Alpina museum of Plan-les-Ouates, Geneva, Switzerland.
On this occasion and to mark 2019 as the 50th anniversary of Man’s landing on the moon, Alpina created a special edition of 299 pieces in a deep blue color. The backcase presents a special engraving, with the moon appearing at the center of Alpina’s famous triangle logo, inspired by the Matterhorn in 1900.
This limited-edition "Space" watch features 5 sensors on the dial and case that track the altitude, barometer, compass, connected GPS, UV indicator and temperature in any atmosphere. Along with connected functions such as activity and sleep tracking, calls and message notifications and a worldtimer. This model features a navy fiber glass and stainless steel case, digital screen and navy leather strap with blue hands, black luminous treatment, and luminous silver indexes. With this watch you are ready to conquer anything!
