The Alpina 12 Hours of Sebring Automatic Chrono GMT
After an extremely successful venture, Alpina Genève and Sebring International Raceway have again united for the 58th annual edition of the legendary 12 Hours of Sebring. As a result, Alpina was named the Official Timekeeper of the event on Sebring International Raceway in Florida, USA. In the racing world, the 12 Hours of Sebring are considered among the main events on the international calendar, not solely because it is the opening race of the American Le Mans Series (ALMS).

During the three-day event, the finest international field of road racing cars and drivers came together at Sebring to compete in the most grueling endurance race in North America. Traditionally witnessed by a passionate crowd of nothing less than 170,000 race fans.
 
Alpina 12 Hours of Sebring Timepiece
 
To celebrate the partnership between Alpina and Sebring International Raceway, the luxury sports watch brand from Geneva 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. 

With a generous diameter of 47mm, the matt black stainless steel watch features a black dial with red and silver elements. 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 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. Both front and reverse sides of the timepiece are equipped with ultra resistant sapphire crystals.

Produced in a limited edition of only 158 timepieces, this Alpina edition is available at a great value for money price of USD 3,000.
