Alpina Geneve has been named Official Timekeeper of the 57th edition of the 12 Hours of Sebring endurance race to be held March 18-21, 2009 on Sebring International Raceway in Florida. In honor of this event, Alpina has developed a special limited edition timepiece: the Alpina Extreme ’12 Hours of Sebring’. An example of this watch will be presented to the winner following the race.
The watch is made of black steel and rubber and has a matte black dial with the design of the tarmac of the track. It features clear indexes with a red ’12’, commemorating the twelve hours of the race. The Swiss automatic movement is visible through the exhibition case back.
To honor the 57th race, the watch will be presented in an exclusive limited and numbered edition of only 257 pieces worldwide.
