Where Are Alpina Watches Manufactured?
Alpina watches as of now are manufactuerd in Geneva, Switzerland, and they are being manufactured there since 2006. This is the place where these watches are put into a blueprint, designed, actually made in the care of many watch especialists, and asembled for being shipped all over the world
Tests That Alpina Watches Go Through
Before Alpina watches actually reach the market, they do have to go through a process of tests so that the makers can make sure that Alpina watches are actually par to the standard of their name and repute. These tests test different things like appearance, precision, durability, comfortability, so that the makers can be absolutely sure that these watches will be able to cope with the harsh conditions that they might get exposed to.
Quality Of Alpina Watches
Each and every single one of Alpina watches have to go through an intriciate testing process like mentioned above, and even the movement used in the watch are very delicately dealt with.
So, this basically means that each and every single one of Alpina watch takes time and dedication to be made before it comes out to the public eye.
Done By Hand
Though, there are quite a few tech-y machines that are used for the production of Alpina watches, like laser-guided machines, and machines for nanotechonology, but the work of assembling the watch together is sitll done by hand by actual Alpina watch experts. And this goes for all of Alpina’s watches
Alpina watches also put their watches on a test for water-resistence, especially watches that are labelled, “Water-resistant”, this is done using Hormec machines to make sure that Alpina watches don’t easily get damaged by water. If you want to know more about this, Alpina has itself published a manual, you can take a look at that “Here“
Alpina watches have a reasonably good reputation in the watch-universe. And one of the biggest reasons for it is the way these watches are manufactured. Moreover, like we mentioned Alpina watches are highly focused on using their own movement, which is also something that is highly appreciated in the watch world.
Despite that, Alpina watches also have a very rich history and a swiss manufacturing background. The watch brand has been making watches for over a century now.
But unfortunately, Alpina watches aren’t nearly as well-known as other watch brands like Rolex which are younger then this swiss watch-making brand
Alpina International Warranty
Alpina watches come with a 2 year warranty, and this warranty includes any problem that might rise from the daily use of any Alpina watch.
Moreover, Alpina is entirely dedicated to stand by the warranty it makes and if need be would change entire parts of the watch, if there is a defect (a manufacturing error of some sort).
But this does mean that the customer needs to have the warranty certificate with them when they come to claim for repair through the warranty. So, if you are planning on buying an Alpina watch, make sure to place the warranty card, somewhere safe, so you would be able to get your watch reparied if need be, or get it checked without having to worrying about incurring a cost
