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.
