Shadow is the English word for shadow and indeed the Alpina Alpiner 4 Shadow is a shadow like watch. The robust stainless steel case, the bracelet, the dial, the bezel, the hour and minute hands and also the date display are all in elegant black. Inscriptions and markings stand out in dark grey just enough from the background to be visible. Thus the watch always recedes discreetly into the background and does not impose itself on the observer in a screaming manner, but nevertheless catches his or her attention with its unusual and impressive colour scheme. The colour black is masculine and cool. As a neutral tone, it fits perfectly into any wardrobe and is appropriate for any occasion and in any environment.
A touch of red
Red is the normal color of the Alpina logo, but the Alpina Alpiner 4 Shadow was also made without it and the logo was kept uniformly with the rest of the watch in shadow gray. Nevertheless, the designers obviously didn't want to do without the typical Alpina colour completely. In two places, it emerges from the shadows unexpectedly and yet quite appropriately. In bright, clear red, yet thin and therefore not disturbing, the second hand stands out against the black dial. Even thinner and therefore less noticeable, the colour is also found on the circled 4, which identifies the Alpina Alpiner 4 Shadow model above the six o'clock marker. Two inconspicuous contrasting dots thus give the design of the Alpina Alpiner 4 Shadow the final, elegant touch.
