Alpina presents the Alpiner Comtesse Quartz in three fresh variations, featuring appealing brown, peppermint green, and lilac dials. Housed in a sturdy steel case with an elegant 34-millimeter diameter, these quartz-powered watches are a perfect fit for women seeking an active and thrilling summer, whether immersed in city life, tackling work challenges, engaging in sports, or enjoying a vacation.
Since its establishment in 1883, Alpina has been dedicated to designing watches that accompany adventurous mountaineers on their expeditions, ensuring they are waterproof, anti-magnetic, and impact-resistant. In 1963, Alpina expanded its repertoire by introducing the Comtesse, the brand’s inaugural women’s sports watch, which became an integral part of the Alpina collection. Distinguished by the smallest and strongest automatic movement of its time, the Caliber 362, equipped with a bidirectional rotor, the Comtesse made its mark.
This year, the Alpiner Comtesse Quartz, previously known as the Comtesse, proudly celebrates its sixtieth anniversary. In honor of this milestone, the watch is being released in three captivating new shades that symbolize a summer dedicated to sports and elegance.
Thanks to its new light brown finish, the first dial boasts a timeless and distinguished presence. The subtly sparkling peppermint green version adds a natural, lively, and distinctive touch to the Alpiner Comtesse Quartz. The third option combines lilac with a hint of pink, evoking a feminine, flowery ambiance reminiscent of early mornings. All three dials feature a sun-brushed finish that radiates when kissed by sunlight.
Unifying the trio of Alpiner Comtesse Quartz models is their shared DNA and price point, offering exceptional value for money due to their outstanding technical and stylistic qualities. Each watch embraces a steel case that ensures superior impact resistance while exuding a graceful aura with its petite 34-millimeter diameter. The case is meticulously crafted with alternating matte and polished surfaces, extending to the three-link steel strap, which shines brilliantly in the light. These timepieces are crafted to withstand the rigors of everyday use, with a screw-down crown ensuring water resistance up to 100 meters, a non-reflective sapphire crystal, and a robust double-clasp buckle equipped with two pushers to firmly secure the watch during sports and urban activities.
The dial of each watch proudly displays three central hands and a convenient date window positioned at 6 o’clock. Time can be effortlessly read at any hour, as the luminous hour and minute hands, along with the applique hour markers, provide excellent visibility. Enthusiasts familiar with Alpina will immediately recognize the triangular counterweight on the seconds hand, serving as a subtle reminder of the alpine summits that inspired the brand’s name. Additionally, a discreet minute circle with Arabic numerals encircling the flange pays homage to the sporting heritage of the Alpiner Comtesse Quartz.
In terms of precision, these three new watches exceed expectations with legendary Swiss accuracy, being Swiss Made. Their quartz movements power the hours, minutes, seconds, and date functions with utmost precision, accompanied by an impressive battery life of nearly four years (45 months). This longevity ensures that the Alpiner Comtesse Quartz remains a reliable companion even during the longest and most adventurous escapades.
