Alpiner Comtesse Sport Quartz Rainbow: The new strikingly colourful feminine watch by Alpina
In 2022, Alpina is offering its feminine sports watch dedicated to the Alpine world a new dress code, with the Alpiner Comtesse Sport Quartz Rainbow. Radiant, sassy full of life and heralding the start of the eagerly-awaited summer season, only 288 pieces of this limited edition were produced. The 36.5 mm steel case features a midnight blue sunray dial, with indexes in twelve different colours. Fun, vibrant, reliable and strong, this rainbow-coloured creation will be the perfect sporting friend for the summer of 2022, ready to climb all the peaks!
She is pretty, sporty, and always ready for adventure, who is she? She, the Comtesse, is the feminine version of Alpina sports watches. A young woman of her time, lively and modern, in the vanguard of her era and its trends.
This year, Alpina is widening its Alpiner Comtesse line, dedicated to conquering the Alpine peaks, and has come up with a colourful nickname which expresses its mischievous and playful side: Alpiner Comtesse Sport Quartz Rainbow. A fun, sexy and summer version produced in 288 pieces only, for women seeking an original, vibrant and colourful look, while keeping the quality and accuracy of their watch for everyday use.
“Rainbow” is the adjective used to describe a dial whose indexes reproduce the hues of a rainbow. Known for bringing good luck, its particular light and its luminous bands brighten people’s faces and bring happiness and vivacity to everyone who sees them.
To begin the summer season and the challenges that go with its energy and optimism, the new Alpiner Comtesse Sport Quartz Rainbow features these colours in twelve different shades; gradually passing through the variations of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet and pink with all the intermediate hues. To obtain this effect, each index benefited from colour treatment.
This rainbow is deployed on a sunray blue dial which perfectly diffuses the light, over which two wide hands impressed with luminous material – like the indexes – guarantee perfect legibility.
The layout of the colours has been designed with care: the “12”, coloured in a very feminine pink shade is followed at 1 o’clock by a red index, which recalls the fact that it is Alpina’s main colour, the starting point of the “rainbow” from which all the other colours originate. It is discreetly featured on the counterweight of the second hand, with the red triangle symbolising an Alpine peak, Alpina’s iconic emblem since 1883.
Sporty, reliable and ready for any adventure
Completed with a blue bezel punctuated by white markers and waterproof to a depth of 60 metres, its 36.5 mm steel case echoes the strap made of the same material, with three links, an alternation of polished and satin-finish surfaces. Known for withstanding the most extreme conditions, the steel not only guarantees the solidity of this timepiece but also gives its sporting design the perfect aesthetic harmony.
Alpina chose to include the AL-235 calibre quartz in its new Comtesse Sport Quartz Rainbow, guaranteeing 45 months of autonomy. Ideal for outdoor sporting activities, quartz technology has two major benefits. Firstly, its longevity is in a class of its own, with the autonomy of more than three years, depending on use. Always perfectly operational, it will allow Alpine routes to be explored for many hours. Secondly, its nearly total shock resistance and its guarantee of chronometric accuracy, far greater than that of a mechanical movement, for a fraction of its price.
With this new version, Alpina remains faithful to its affordable and all-terrain Swiss Made spirit, offering watches designed to be true “tool watches”, able to adapt to all environments to define their own path – as do climbers who open up their “path” on the mountain.
