Waterproof Swiss quality work
It is possible that the shortening of the six o'clock line would not have been necessary if there had not been further inscriptions above the date display. But we have to forgive Alpina for this, because it is the model name Alpiner and the information "100m/330FT". If the latter doesn't tell you anything, it's an indication of the depth to which the watch is water-resistant, a piece of information that Alpina is rightly proud of and which may also be useful for the wearer if he spontaneously decides to go swimming. To the left and right of the six o'clock line there is the inscription "SWISS MADE" to confirm to us - and to you - that this is a genuine Swiss watch.
Like Switzerland itself, Alpina Alpiner Quarz seems to speak several languages. In German-speaking countries, for example, the model name Alpine Quartz is immediately understandable. The inscription Swiss made, on the other hand, is clearly in English. It announces to the whole world that the watch was produced in Switzerland. Geneve, however, is neither German nor English. It is the French name of the city of Geneva, which would be called Geneva in English. This is probably because Geneva is located in the French-speaking part of Switzerland and is therefore the correct name of Alpina's home town.
