Alpina is putting its weight and its watches behind the IceLegacy project.

The Chopard brand, run for over 50 years by the canny Scheufele family, is perhaps best known for its range of high-end jewellery and evening wear timepieces, but they also happen to produce some of the sexiest motor inspired watches of all the brands, and this new collection is no exception
When Felix Baumgartner jumped from the stratosphere with his Zenith on the wrist, at Mach 1.1, the manufacture said the watch could resist pretty much anything. That’s a statement. Not a fact. That’s why we decided to take the piece, the Zenith El Primero Striking 10th « Stratos », up North. Precisely at almost 300 kilometers North from the Arctic circle.
