About Alpina Watches
"Not this time," you say, bypassing a generic plastic timepiece for an Alpina watch. These watches come in modern styles featuring bold, elegant faces with Roman numeral displays. Contrasting color hands marking minutes, hours, and seconds make these watches easy to read. You can find them with leather bands and elegant cuffs deriving from silver, gold, and metal alloys. The Alpina watch features a timeless look, but dates back many years to the late 1800s. Its origins begin in Switzerland with a group of elite watchmakers called Alpinists. These experts produce sophisticated timepieces for men and women, combining innovative designs with high-quality materials and durable components, catering to active lifestyles. The large inventory on eBay lets you explore the watches in this collection, including vintage Alpina watches. These timepieces feature round or square faces, which come in sterling silver or gold, and have surrounding cases of protective glass. Small dials on the side let you adjust the watches manually for the precise time. Soft leather bands attach to the faces and ensure a precise fit around your wrist with adjustable buckles. In addition to wristwatches, you can look for Alpina pocket watches, which feature a round face under a protective lid that attaches to a link chain.
