“We’re thrilled to announce that our partnership with the Freeride World Tour has been renewed for the third year running, with Alpina Watches serving as the official timekeeper for the 2020 season. 2020 is set to be a very special year indeed, as this March marks the 25th anniversary of the Xtreme de Verbier. And to celebrate, we’ll be releasing a limited edition of our AlpinerX. We also have the pleasure of welcoming in new ambassadors to the Mountain Team, some of whom will be attending the FWT. We’d like to wish them the very best of luck ahead of time, and extend these wishes to all the athletes competing in this incredible event!”

AlpinerX – Freeride World Tour Limited Edition
In celebration of this partnership, Alpina is proud to present an AlpinerX edition with a very special design, developed in partnership with the Freeride World Tour. To mark the Xtreme de Verbier’s 25th anniversary, just 150 watches will be produced, 25 of which will be released as part of a safety set to include a Black Diamond Safety Beacon.
Designed especially for lovers of the great outdoors, this watch is linked up to the AlpinerX app (available for iPhone and Android) that monitors your heart rate via a belt, measures altitude and pressure, comes equipped with a GPS location tracker and sends data to your watch in real time to help take performance to the next level.
This special edition stands out through the official Freeride World Tour logo featured at two o’clock, and will be sold in a sleek case with a commemorative engraved plate numbered one through 150 to mark the Xtreme de Verbier’s 25th anniversary, along with a RECCO helmet rescue reflector.
