Ice Legacy – Believe – Preserve – Transmit.” Behold, a worthy contender for the Most Random Selection Of Words On A Watch Dial 2016 Award, as featured on the Alpina Alpiner 4 GMT Business Timer. Beyond the at first baffling dial text, there actually is an interesting and competitive, if not entirely new offering released today by Alpina, so let us take a closer look.Alpina Alpiner 4 GMT Business Timer Watch Watch Releases Alpina, if you didn’t know, is Frédérique Constant’s sister brand, purchased and revived under FC in an effort to offer the parent brand’s strong points – competitive pricing, design, and quality – in a sportier package since the more elegant styling of Frédérique Constant would not have taken well to a sporty new direction. The Alpiner 4 collection has been around for a while, and our James Stacey has gone hands-on with (and understandably liked) the handsome-looking, original Alpiner 4 GMT here.Alpina Alpiner 4 GMT Business Timer Watch Watch Releases In a nutshell, the Alpina Alpiner 4 GMT Business Timer features a 44-millimeter-wide stainless steel case, with a most welcome water resistance rating of 100 meters, and is powered by the AL-550 “Jumping Hour” GMT movement. The “4” in the Alpiner 4 collection name refers to a 1938 collection from Alpina, with the number 4 calling to: Stainless Steel, Water Resistant, Anti-Magnetic, and Anti-Shock. Because of this, the Alpina Alpiner 4 GMT Business Timer is ISO764 compliant and is certified to withstand magnetic fields of up to 4,800 A/m. Last, as for anti-shock properties, the watches are certified to the ISO1413 standard.Alpina Alpiner 4 GMT Business Timer Watch Watch Releases

The movement, which likely remains unchanged from the original piece from two years ago and hence will likely remain hidden behind a solid steel case-back, is a Sellita SW-200 automatic base movement that provides a rather brief 38-hour-long power reserve. Alpina has added to it what will most likely remain an in-house-made module, that allows for the jumping hour setting of the local time, independent from the GMT and minutes indication. This way, when you’re traveling, you can adjust just the hour hand in one-hour increments, without messing up all other indications.Alpina Alpiner 4 GMT Business Timer Watch Watch Releases What’s new for the Alpina Alpiner 4 GMT Business Timer is what Alpina officially refers to as a Pepsi colorway – a term generally used for watches with a red-blue colored bezel or flange ring, but most often linked to the Rolex GMT-Master II (hands-on here). Interestingly, Alpina has painted red the 9-17 section, to highlight generally accepted business hours – which are proudly not at all adhered to by anyone on the aBlogtoWatch team, that I can promise you.Alpina Alpiner 4 GMT Business Timer Watch Watch Releases
