To celebrate the last edition of the Red Bull Air Race World Championship which took place in Chiba, Japan on the 7th and 8th of September 2019 Alpina and Michael Goulian launched a new AlpinerX watch limited to just 250 pieces, the AlpinerX Red Bull Air Race Team 99 Limited Edition Watch.
Since 2003 the Red Bull Air race has been taking place all around the world, bringing excitement to aviators and racing fans alike with more than 90 races in total.
Michael Goulian designed the watch himself using the AlpinerX configurator from the Kickstarter project, finetuning it to match the new colours of his U.S. based air show plane. You can see a yellow inner ring and a matching strap with the Team 99 logo at 2 o’clock on this one-of-a-kind AlpinerX smartwatch.
The connected timepiece uses advanced measurement functions benefiting from environmental sensors such as the new heart rate monitoring over BLE connection, UV, temperature, altitude, pressure, north direction.
Conceived for outdoor enthusiasts, the watch uses the dedicated Alpina companion application, available for iPhone or Android: it tracks your heart rate while exercising, records and analyses your sleep patterns and notifies missed calls and messages and enables you to easily configure the parameters of your watch. The new companion app has been revisited in order to have an easier overview of all your data via a dedicated dashboard.
Each function is measured in real time by the watch and streams data to the user’s smartphone to analyze activity and identify areas for improvement while allowing the AlpinerX to receive smartphone notifications on its digital screen.
The AlpinerX has been carefully conceived and designed in our manufacture in Plan-Les-Ouates, Geneva. With its sporty and powerful look, its quality materials and refined details, the AlpinerX makes a strong statement and quite simply, a cool timepiece to wear.
The case is made from glass fiber with a steel back case engraved with the Team 99 logo.
THE ORIGINAL SWISS ALPINE SPORTS WATCH MANUFACTURING SINCE 1883
Alpina, famous for its red triangle signature representing the renowned Matterhorn mountain, is a fine Swiss watchmaking manufacture based in Geneva, Switzerland that has been founded in 1883 by a group of passionate watchmakers.
A true pioneer of the Swiss watchmaking industry, Alpina has been the source of numerous patents and innovative calibers inventing the concept of the Swiss sports watch as we know it today, with the birth of its legendary Alpina 4 in 1938.
Faithful to its long tradition of innovation, in 2015 Alpina introduced the first connected Swiss Made Horological Smartwatch, thereby creating a new watch category in the Swiss luxury sports watch industry operating with the greatest precision and reliability in the most demanding sporting environments, like the Alps.
Since 2016 Alpina has been the official watch Supplier of the French Ski Federation and has announced a renewal of its partnership until 2020.
