The name Alpina originates from the Alps and the men that conquered those mountains: the Alpinists. These men had five great principles: they were perseverant, thought independently, trusted their instincts, looked for their limits and last but not least forgot about their "Swiss" roots. These five principles are what Gottlieb Hauser had in mind when he started Alpina, and these five principles are still passed forward with every Alpina watch.
Alpina is a Swiss brand established by Gottlieb Hauser. In 1883, he united independent Swiss watchmakers and under his leadership, they achieved the highest quality and innovated at a rapid pace. In a few years, they were already producing their own movements.
