Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 Automatic

Postby koimaster » June 1st 2017, 9:13am

Venerable Swiss watchmaker Alpina is no stranger to tool watches. They supplied watches for military pilots in the 1920's, developed water resistant models in the 1930's, and launched the first Seastrong diver in 1969. The Seastrong has seen several incarnations since then. The current line consists of the Horological Smartwatch, the Big Date Chronograph, the Heritage reissue, and the Diver 300 Automatic that Alpina loaned me for this review.

Either the Time Bum's coming up in the world, or Alpina's coming down.

Ready for Joma to offer up the Seastrong at a discount. That one gives me a major stiffie.

Those photos are awful. That watch looks way than that.

Iguana Sell will have the bracelet model with blue bezel in within a couple of weeks.

I really need to hold off and see if I can get one used in a few months.

May have to satisfy the urge with the Certina DS Action green HAQ diver. $379 is a good price on the Certina and I really don't want to get the Alpina at MSRP.

I love the bezel on this watch. I would like to get one, but 44mm is just too large for me.
This guy says he was afraid he couldn't pull it off, but is happy he was able to. Not in the picture he showed, that watch swallows his wrist.
