I would rather not unveil the level of vintage Alpinas in my watch assortment. However the as of late delivered update of the Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 is the principal current Alpina I have the joy to review.

Reaching new profundities: the Alpina Seastrong Diver 300

It was a significant enormous sprinkle when Alpina tossed in their re-planned jumper into the jam-packed 2016 Basel lake. Toning it down would be ideal. Alpina made a stride back and by that shockingly gotten itself three strides ahead. Past Alpina submerged creation helped me to remember notorious Breitling pieces. You sort of felt there was a lot going on and didn’t know where the watch came from or where it should go. Those occasions are failed to remember as Alpina jumpers disposed of the relative multitude of pointlessly fun loving components like the triple vertical date opening. The current Alpina jumpers range addresses the best coming from their workbenches. Today we take more critical glance at one of the four new refreshed releases.

Mature colors

The Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 that arrived around my work area accompanied a dark bezel and dim dial. Both bezel radiant markers and lists are beige,  acolor that helps me to remember vintage patina. I’m shocked to peruse what I am going to say, however from the four curiosities, the model in bronze PVD covered case with dark dial and earthy colored bezel would be my own decision. To summarize the new shading choice of bezels, dials and cases with a binding together topic – I would say that the unobtrusive desaturated colors pleasantly move from the already rich, striking and strong Seastrong bezels.

More balance

All dial and bezel shading consummately coordinate the titanium or bronze PVD covered cases. In comparison to previous pieces, the new Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 models likewise look more develop and more tasteful. You will not recognize any emotional contrasts among old and new, however take one brief gander at the new model and the more established Seastrong Diver looks somewhat level in comparison.

Priorities well executed

My promoting foundation instructed me to understand visuals. To be capable not exclusively to see, yet definitely name which plan component is driving where individuals should look first. The new Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 ref AL-525LGG4TV6 is a decent illustration of this guideline. The vertical area lines acquired from GMT renditions give the watch a compact inclination, holding it together firmly. Slender moment markers add a sportier look and fill in the holes between the extensive grasslands and oval hour markers. What’s more, presently, the component we have all been sitting tight for. There is no punch in the face from a sparkly bezel, as it is the red edge on the moment hand that first gets your attention. Effectively. Functionally.

Successful breeding

Speaking about needs professional, I need to let it out. Each time I take a gander at the Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 dim jumper with the red outlined half hour hand, I see Ploprof. What one idealist may never have gulped, from my perspective it isn’t really something terrible. The moment markers and Nautilus block like “pivots” on the sides of the case enhance this much more. In the event that you subliminally imagine Panerai shapes, you get an extraordinarily blended square jumper shape. Each sold Seastrong cements it as Alpina’s mark. Also, with Alpina, remember we are in a value range where potential clients may botch the word “Panerai” for engine oils or a travel service! No offense, I’m simply explaining for all to hear on the genuine market playground.


There’s nothing exceptional to report about the programmed development AL-525 as it is the solid Sellita SW-200. With 26 gems and 38 hours of force hold, there’s nothing unexpected on the straightforward case back and dark mark rotor. The Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 has a case distance across of 44 mm that asks for an additional 20 cm of my tallness and 20 kg of my weight. However, that is my problem.

Shotgun notes on the Alpina Seastrong Diver 300

To keep this quick and painless I chose to add a lot of subtleties without elaboration on the Alpina Seastrong Diver 300. I trust you appreciate them in their straightforwardness. The vintage calfskin lash looks tough yet is very delicate. The bezel triangle at 12 is entrancing under an amplifying glass. The oval shape and length of lists are near awesome, despite the fact that I am as yet not OK with the Alpina logo style – separating appears to be off, size and extent imbalanced. I don’t live previously, yet unquestionably like the more established logos more. The unidirectional bezel exactness: the clicking and counter pressing factor it gives your fingers is addictive. Try not to be astonished in the event that you have the desire to press the left “pivot” that resembles a catch. Time comprehensibility is perfect.

Superficial duplicate for showcasing

If I was going to contend one explanation from the authority public statements or the web introduction, it would be the strange assertion directly at the top saying that the new Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 is “in the ideal coherence of Alpina’s only remaining century watches, to be specific the 1960s Seastrong “10”.” Ehm, the reason and name would be the solitary progression with the Seastrong 10.

For me the Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 is quite a trademark watch and presenting it with a particularly nonexclusive case is off. Considerably more so in the event that we as a whole know there is a Alpina Seastrong Diver Heritage with an inside bezel worked continuously crown as a full re-version of the genuine unique. I can’t help myself, yet a brand should focus closer on how they present their watches. Particularly taught clients that know the Alpina portfolio may then feel unsure or like there isn’t anything genuine to say, which isn’t true.


Final thoughts

My proposal for another portrayal: New Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 is the following thoroughly considered emphasis on the generally unquestionably unmistakable jumper watch. The new Alpina Seastrong 300 is an instance of advancement instead of transformation and features the line’s solid highlights and kills its previous shaky areas. It would makes for the ideal blessing to a companion or associate who wants to swim and jumping may be the following running. It has a strong case, exquisite style, quality completing and a dependable motor behind a piece case back. All that comes alongside the unquestionable enchant of a brand with 130+ long periods of watchmaking history for under 1300 euros.
