A short history of Alpina

In 1883, Alpina Swiss Watchmakers Corporation was established by Gottlieb Hauser. The original name of the brand was “Alpina Union Horlogère S.A. (UH)/ Schweizerische Uhrmacher-Genossenschaft”. In 2002, the watch manufacturer was purchased by Frédérique Constant SA – owned by Peter and Aletta Stas. Alpina’s headquarters are located in Geneva, Switzerland.

Gottlieb Hauser united independent Swiss watchmakers who were later on referred to as “Alpinists” – thereby giving the brand its name – Alpina.

Originally, Hauser intended for the brand to optimize the production of timepieces and movements, but the brand ultimately ended up developing and producing its very own chronometers and in-house movements – also referred to as “calibers”.
