Alpina: Introducing the Alpiner Comtesse Sport Quartz Rainbow

In 2022, Alpina is offering its feminine sports watch a new look with the Alpiner Comtesse Sport Quartz Rainbow, limited to 288 pieces. The 36.5 mm steel case features a midnight blue sunray dial, with indexes in twelve different colours.


he Comtesse is the feminine version of Alpina sports watches. This year, the brand is widening this collection with the introduction of the Alpiner Comtesse Sport Quartz Rainbow, produced in 288 pieces only.

“Rainbow” is the adjective used to describe a dial whose indexes reproduce the hues of a rainbow. The new model 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 a colour treatment.

This rainbow is deployed on a sunray blue dial which perfectly diffuses the light, over which two wide hands impressed with a 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 seconds hand, with the red triangle symbolising an Alpine peak, Alpina’s iconic emblem since 1883.

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 in a class of its own, with 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.
