A new take on its most recent predecessor, the Alpine Challenge, Stuhrling Original brings you a brand new timepiece that redefines the way everyone looks at style and elegance. This watch combines the dressy look of a skeleton watch with the blazing personality of a sport watch. Welcome the Alpine Slalom. Just at first glance you can tell this is a timepiece made to impress, if not with its intricate dial work, then through its sheer size. The Slalom measures in at a very impressive 52mm. Like the other watches in the Alpine Series, this watch features all the signature designs: the scalloped edges on the case, the bulbous crown with rubber ring, and that beautiful domed crystal that gives the Alpine an entirely different level of three-dimensionality. As much as the Slalom is similar to the classic Alpines, this timepiece was designed with features that make it entirely unique in its own right. Rather than the normal Alpine faceplate, the Slalom is outfitted with a skeletonized faceplate instead, which reveals even more of the movement. This mechanical automatic holds nothing back when it comes to aesthetic quality; the Roman numeral markers for 12, 4, ad 8, along with the cigar-style hands have been treated with Luminova for unbelievable luminescence. The Alpine Slalom comes with a beautiful mesh bracelet, stainless steel, flexible, and extremely comfortable in how it conforms to the wrist.
Krysterna is proprietary to Stührling Original and refers to the crystals that are used in its timepieces. Krysterna stems from the eyewear industry and has more strength over a spread surface area than sapphire. Krysterna crystals are more scratch resistant than mineral crystals and more shatter resistant than sapphire crystals.
The Alpine Family is part of the Champion Collection, a select group of timepieces designed to fit your personal sense of style. These iconic Stuhrling Original timepieces are unique in that they feature propeller style faceplates and cigar hands. They are sporty, stylish, and an incredibly bold presence on the wrist.
Summary of Features
• Movement: Manual/Self-Winding Mechanical Movement
The hand-wound mechanical movement is perhaps the most classical of movements. It operates exclusively by the daily (or sometimes more often) winding of the crown to power the mainspring (the “heart” of the movement). Unlike its automatic mechanical counterpart, this type of movement does not feature a rotor. The energy source is the mainspring (a spring coiled into a tight spiral) which is wound manually by the wearer twisting the crown, usually in a clockwise direction. As time progresses, the spring begins to uncoil, releasing the energy needed to activate the various wheels and make the movement tick. Without routine winding of the crown, the hand-wound mechanical movement will eventually lose power. Thus, mechanical hand-wound movements usually require daily winding. A hand-wound movement requires greater care than almost all other types of movements because once the mainspring is fully wound, additional tension may cause it to break.
