The National Park Services says most of its facilities and events are closed or canceled, but outdoor spaces in some parks remain accessible to the public.
All the more important, then, for the launch by Alpina of a limited edition National Park Foundation Alpiner Quartz. NPF is the official non-profit partner of the National Parks Service, and helps fund the protection of the spaces and their unique visitor experiences.
The latest Alpiner Quartz draws inspiration from the national parks with its forest green dial and brown leather strap embossed with the foundation’s logo.
“This timepiece is the next step in our partnership with the National Park Foundation, and the perfect opportunity for the wearer to show their support of the national parks,” said Alpina’s managing director, Fernando Sanchez.
“Alpina was founded by a group of Alpinist who loved the outdoors and through this partnership we expand the brand’s support of the great outdoors from the Swiss Alps to the US national parks. We can’t wait to see the adventures people encounter in the National Park System.”
The watch houses an AL-240 quartz movement, driving hours, minutes, seconds and date, in a 42mm steel case.
It is being made in a limited run of 300, which are on sale for $795.
“Alpina’s generous support helps us fulfill our mission to protect and enhance America’s national parks for present and future generations,” said Stefanie Mathew, senior vice president of corporate partnerships at the National Park Foundation. “The National Park Foundation is proud to partner with a brand that encourages its consumers to experience the beauty and history of these national treasures.”
