Alpina Photo Contest ¶
The Swiss watchmaking brand Alpina recently organized a photo contest on the theme, Outdoors, in order to illustrate the spirit of the brand.
Alpina watches are particularly dedicated to the amateurs of extreme sports, nearly linked to the Mountain environment, but also linked to the pleasures of the effort and discovery.
Not less than 1300 photos were submitted to a jury composed of specialists who studied each picture before rewarding the one of Mr Tilo Grapenthin. His picture illustrates a sailor on a 3 masts boat into the heart of the Antarctic, see the picture below.
The happy winner of the competition, Mr Grapenthin, received an Alpina Ortovox Patroller set, combining a Alpina Extreme Regulator model, to a small equipment (Ortovox) destined to localize victims under avalanche into a rescue pack.
