Alpina Supports Our National Parks With A Limited-Edition Swiss Quartz Watch

Alpina’s Swiss watches have always been respected within the world of wristwear, and the company’s support of the United States’ National Park Foundation has made it all-the-more transparent that devotion to the cultivation of culture (and the outdoors) will serve as a solid foundation for its latest project. Now, the company has revealed the Alpiner Quartz — a limited-edition watch benefitting the National Park Service and its initiatives.

The Alpina NPF Alpiner Quartz is an aesthetically-pleasing variant that focuses on the clean linework, qualities, and designs of traditional Swiss watchmaking, while still promoting a more sporty persona, overall. To elaborate on the wristwear’s sleek architecture, the example has been imbued with anti-shock, anti-magnetic, and water-resistant properties, complementing its durable stainless steel body. Beneath its 42mm, scratch-resistant convex sapphire crystal, the watch’s accurate AL-240 quartz movement keeps things accurate and precise. But to set the limited-edition timepiece apart from Alpina’s other offerings, it’s been gifted with an NPF-embossed brown strap, NPF and Alpina logos, and a numbered case back denoting its identity as one of 300 pieces within the collection. A portion of each $795 purchase will benefit various National Park initiatives, including trail and river sustainability. Head to Alpina’s website to learn more.
