Precision, tenacity, time. You can’t rule the wind, the sea and the love for sailing. This year the Swiss fine watch manufacturer Alpina took part in the 34th edition of the sailing regatta “Heineken Regatta”, that took place in St. Martin from March 7th to 9th.

With a Super Yacht Swan 82 Feet FD, thanks to the teamwork, the right time control and the mechanism of the Swiss brand that didn’t miss a moment and moved precisely in this dangerous waters, Alpina and its team won the competition against more than 200 competitors coming from 160 different Countries.

This is how Alpina created the mechanism that became a simple way to test its Sailing Watches’s precision and tell about its soul, where a little mistake can turn into a crucial error when winds blow at 20-25 knots in hundreds square meters sailing area.

The Alpina Sailing Collection is a collection of automatic watches designed specifically for sailing regattas. The top of the range is the Countdown Regatta Timer, indicating the remaining minutes before the start of a regatta with bright blue and orange colors. Instantly, it is clear how many minutes remain before a yacht can cross the starting line. Alpina developed the countdown function on the automatic Sellita SW500 Chronograph Caliber. The beautifully decorated mechanical movement can be seen through the caseback glass.

Founded in 1883, Alpina is a combination of precision and style, love for haute horlogerie and competitive spirit. And the palmarès of the sport and professional successes is the best way to tell about this story made of success and high handcrafted products.
