Beginning as Alpina Germany

The name "Dugena" is one of Germany's most famous watch brands. The roots of the company lie in Switzerland, namely with the Swiss watchmaker association Corporation d'Horlogers Suisse, which was founded in 1883 by Gottlieb Hauser. This was called Union Horlogère from 1901 and presented itself at this time with the brand name Alpina, which was first used as the name of a proprietary caliber.

Thank god--what the world needed, more than anything, was another Bauhaus styled watch.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

Zombie or not a zombie, that is the question...

Seen a fair share of vintage Dugenas, and looking at the new ones, I really think they could put a wee bit more effort into trying to live up to the reputation that Dugena had in the 1950s, 1960s and the 1970s.
