The big comeback of the Alpiner Extreme Regulator Automatic by Alpina

A flagship model launched in 2005, the Alpiner Extreme Regulator Automatic is making its comeback today in the Alpina collection, in a new light.  A powerful creation with separate display of the hours, minutes and seconds, it is set inside a heavy-duty case able to withstand the most extreme conditions, as its name indicates, illustrating the brand’s mission par excellence. In 2022, the Alpiner Extreme Regulator Automatic has new lines and for the first time comes in an ultra-compact 41 mm size. Its finely sculpted dial gives it a more assertive look, with as many watchmaking thrills as emotions.

Founded in 1883 but fallen in disuse due to the quartz crisis, it was especially through the Alpiner Extreme Regulator - at that time called the Avalanche Extreme Regulator - that Alpina found its way back to the summits in the early 2000s. A passion-inducing timepiece for enthusiasts presented in 2005. An atypical creation with distinctive, powerful and modern lines, ready to meet all challenges, in all environments and in all weathers, faithful to Alpina’s mission to create luxury sports watches able to withstand the most extreme conditions – hence its name.  

The Alpiner Extreme Regulator, is a timepiece which has accompanied the brand’s revival and which still today is helping it attain a new milestone thanks to its unique look: a new more compact and more vigorous case and a dial whose color and pattern make it unique. And especially, the return of its AL-650 caliber which drove its initial beats nearly 20 years ago.

A contemporary size

In 2022, the Alpiner Extreme Regulator Automatic is primarily continuing the movement with a resizing of its case. The watch is now offered in a 41 mm diameter – compared to 48 mm previously. For the first time, it is perfectly conceivable for both men and women to wear their Alpiner Extreme Regulator Automatic in all situations. This 41 diameter opens up new horizons for it: all terrain and everyone!
