She is pretty, sporty, and always ready for adventure, who is she? She, the Comtesse, is the feminine version of Alpina sports watches. A young woman of her time, lively and modern, in the vanguard of her era and its trends.
This year, Alpina is widening its Alpiner Comtesse line, dedicated to conquering the Alpine peaks, with a colorful nickname expressing its mischievous and playful side: Alpiner Comtesse Sport Quartz Rainbow. A fun, sexy and summer version produced in 288 pieces only, for women seeking an original, vibrant and colorful look, while maintaining quality and accuracy for everyday use.
Code name: Rainbow
“Rainbow” is the adjective used to describe a dial with indexes featuring the hues of a rainbow. Known for bringing good luck, its particular light and its luminous bands brighten people’s faces and bring happiness and vivacity to everyone who sees them.
To begin the summer season and the challenges that go with its energy and optimism, the new Alpiner Comtesse Sport Quartz Rainbow features these colors in twelve different shades; gradually passing through the variations of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet and pink with all the intermediate hues. To obtain this effect, each index benefited from a color treatment. This rainbow is deployed on a sunray blue dial which perfectly diffuses the light, over which two wide hands impressed with a luminous material – like the indexes – guarantee perfect legibility.
The layout of the colors has been designed with care: the "12", colored in a very feminine pink shade is followed at 1 o'clock by a red index, Alpina’s main color and the starting point of the "rainbow" from which all the other colors originate. It is discreetly featured on the counterweight of the second hand, with the red triangle symbolizing an Alpine peak, Alpina’s iconic emblem since 1883.
Sporty, reliable and ready for any adventure
Completed with a blue bezel punctuated by white markers and waterproof to a depth of 60 meters, its 36.5 mm stainless steel case is on a three links bracelet, which alternates polished and satin-finish surfaces. Known for withstanding the most extreme conditions, the steel not only guarantees the toughness of this timepiece, but also gives its sporting design the perfect aesthetic harmony.
Alpina included the AL-235 caliber quartz in its new Comtesse Sport Quartz Rainbow, guaranteeing 45 months of autonomy. Ideal for outdoor sporting activities, quartz technology has two major benefits. Firstly, its longevity in a class of its own, with autonomy of more than three years, depending on use. Always perfectly operational, it will allow Alpine routes to be explored for many hours. Secondly, its nearly total shock resistance and its guarantee of chronometric accuracy, greater than that of a mechanical movement, for a fraction of its price.
With this new version, Alpina remains faithful to its affordable and all-terrain Swiss Made spirit, offering watches designed to be true “tool watches”, able to adapt to all environments to define their own path – as do climbers who open up their "path" on the mountain.
