The Alpina Seastrong Collection

Some time ago, we took a look at the Alpina Startimer collection of watches, which is merely one of the many assemblages that forms the portfolio of one of newest horological brands, Alpina. With that in mind, it seems only fair that we should devote a similar feature to an equally popular Alpina range; namely the Seastrong family. Indeed, one might almost think of the Seastrong collection as the opposite side of the Startimer coin, for just as the latter includes timepieces that are optimised for use by pilots, so the former instead chooses to focus upon the world of professional diving.

Alpina have been creating water-resistant wristwatches for some years now, and a distinctly Alpina crown design was actually leading the field of maritime watchmaking some 100 years ago. Fully certified according to the most robust standards of the ISO 6425 – the benchmark for diving timepieces – the Seastrong family also incorporates watches that are suited for sailing and yachting, so their use is by no means limited to practising divers. The Seastrong collection is extremely varied in scope, but, by way of an overview, here are a few of our favourite timepieces:

Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 Orange

There were numerous options that we could have chosen to showcase the Seastrong Diver 300 assemblage, but we decided upon this model for a number of reasons. Firstly, the use of orange is significant, as orange is actually the most visible colour in all types of water, so it’s a practical augmentation in terms of visibility, as well as serving as an attractive visual embellishment.

Secondly, the mesh bracelet of this watch is rather different to many other diving wristwatches, which tend to favour rubber straps. Boasting luminous details, a 300 metre water resistance and a 38 hour power reserve, this Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 Orange watch is a painstakingly honed instrument for those who require technical precision of the greatest calibre. Available for £1,130, it can be yours on 0% finance today for 36 monthly payments of £25.11 and a 20% deposit.

Alpina Lady Diver 300 Diamonds

In the modern world, a divers’ timepiece is not purely a functional instrument, but is something of a status symbol too, and this delightful Lady Diver from Alpina proves that such a watch can also be a piece of statement-making jewellery. Possessing a precision quartz movement and a 300 water resistance, this Seastrong nevertheless finds time to exude feminine class by way of a gorgeous mother-of-pearl dial, so it’s not lacking in terms of aesthetics.

Furthermore, a light and airy appearance in clean white is accentuated by a dial that’s studded with 8 diamonds, so this really is a stunning blend of form and function. Equally at home when fully immersed or when catching the eye at a dress-occasion, this Alpina Lady Diver 300 Diamonds watch is priced at just £720, but is also brought to you on 0% finance for 24 monthly payments of £27.00 alongside a 10% deposit.

Alpina Yacht Timer Regatta Countdown

The yacht is, in Alpina’s own words, ‘the crown prince of the nautical world’, and for anyone who participates in such open water sailing, this watch is undoubtedly a superb choice. With a generous 44mm case, this Seastrong takes into account the particular yachting focus upon the passage of seconds, rather than minutes, by outlining the seconds hand in a fluorescent orange. The dial also displays countdown windows numbered from 10 to 1 in order to keep track of the start of a race, whilst the bezel is unidirectional to minimise the chances of calculation mistakes occurring.

Tested in 30 atmospheres and water resistant to 300 metres, this Alpina Yacht Timer Regatta Countdown watch is available now from Banks Lyon Jewellers, and if you’d like to enquire further about this timepiece, learn more about our expansive range of Alpina Seastrong watches, or have an interest in Alpina watches in a more general sense, then please don’t hesitate to contact our friendly team today.
