During the three-day event, the finest international field of road racing cars and drivers will converge at Sebring to compete in the most gruelling endurance race in North America. Traditionally witnessed by a passionate crowd of no less than 170,000 race fans, this is definately one of the most challenging and demading motor races of the year, where speed and endurance are combined for added excitement and skill - on the part of both the drivers and the equipment.
12 Hours of Sebring
To celebrate the partnership between alpina and Sebring International Raceway, we have introduced a new limited edition: the alpina 12 Hours of Sebring Automatic Chrono GMT. With this new addition to the collection, the brand reinforces its connection to the world of motor sports.
At the same time, this ‘timekeeper’ is the first edition within the new alpina Racing Collection. The rounded and smooth case shape ensures a perfect fit on the wrist of the drivers, while simultaneously meeting their tough requirements: the highest level of accuracy, readability, shock resistance, sturdiness and reliability.
With a generous diameter of 47mm, the matt black stainless steel watch features a black dial with red and silver elements. The raised white and luminous indexes ensure visibility, also during the nightly hours of the race. Under the ‘hood’, a highly complex and durable Swiss automatic movement offers the ability to keep track of the exact 12 Hours of Sebring, through a sophisticated chronograph functionality with a 12-hour counter in the lower half of the dial. To highlight this feature, a subtle red ‘12’ symbolizes the finish line.
Furthermore, the watch shows time and date, and offers a GMT function. Both front and reverse sides of the timepiece are equipped with ultra resistant sapphire crystals.
To commemorate the 58th race, the alpina 12 Hours of Sebring Automatic Chrono GMT will be issued in a highly exclusive limited and numbered run of just 158 pieces worldwide.
