For some years Alpina have been creating masterpieces for equipping the diver with a companion that he can explore the deep dark depths of the ocean with. The Swiss watch manufacturer's heritage is deeply anchored within the divers watch industry as well as the aviation industry, and what keeps the company’s designers enthusiastic and bursting with new innovative ideas, is their drive for breaking boundaries in technology. Alpina divers watches are crafted from a selection of the very highest quality materials. It is this unique blend of materials along with their cutting edge features that have led Alpina to achieve ultimate success in becoming one of the world's most widely recognised sports watch manufacturers for deep sea diving. Their 300 metre water resistant watch – the Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 watch, seamlessly combines form and function with a professional divers spec and highly readable dial encased within a broad 44mm stainless steel case. A unidirectional rotating bezel, screw-in crown and screw-down caseback are among some of the fundamental features often seen in an Alpina Seastrong divers watch. Perfectly equipped to see the wearer through some of the most challenging conditions out on the water, yet equally as wearable as a statement piece for the wrist on a day-to-day basis, the watch is a strong contender amongst others from the iconic collection.
The watches from the Alpina Seastrong collection are fully certified to the highest standards of robustness according to the ISO 6425 – the benchmark for diver's wristwatches. The collection is in no way restricted to just divers alone though. It also houses timepieces for the yachting and sailing industry, making it a family that is extremely varied in scope and versatility. Some of the Alpina divers watches from decades ago featured the distinct Alpina crown design which led the field of maritime watchmaking for a great many years.
The Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 Chronograph Big Date is an affordable divers companion powered by a reliable and accurate quartz movement inside its robust stainless steel case. The watch which features in our Seastrong collection here at Berry’s, is in a niche of its own, with its broad shaped central hands coated in a luminescent treatment to enhance readability. The high contrast black and white dial with a zesty vibrant orange coloured unidirectional rotating bezel, makes for a breath-taking look on the wrist. The glowing appliques on the dial are incredibly bright in light-competing conditions, not to mention total darkness. The trim on the minute hand and the small seconds hand have both been finished in a matching orange hue to keep the sporty aesthetics running strong throughout the design. The signature triangular counterweight on the chronograph seconds hand is a true giveaway of a bone afide Alpina divers watch. Of course an anti-glare and scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass sheet has been fitted to the front of the dial to provide an opportunity to admire all of the watch's finest features.
