Following the 2016 launch of the automatic line, Alpina introduces three new versions, with various sunray-finished dials: “glacier blue”, black, or black with red on the outer rim. The watches come in two sets: all stainless steel or stainless steel on leather bracelet.

I normally like my divers to have strong casebacks (I had been one of the few who enjoyed Alpina’s scuba tank motif on the back of the quartz version of the Extreme Diver), especially when they’re powered by relatively fundamental motions — but the Alpina Watches Limited Edition Replica Seastrong Diver 300 Automatic does not skimp using its Al-525 movement visible via an exhibition caseback. Basically a top-grade Sellita SW-200, the Al-525 is very well equipped with incabloc shock protection, perlage-like Geneva stripes, blued screws, and is completed with a brushed black custom rotor — an Alpina signature on all the brand’s automatic watches. The movement itself winds smoothly, has kept impressive time, and is protected by an oversize screw-down crown that is grippy, and easy to participate with the easily machined threads.One of the interesting design options on the earliest iterations of the Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 has been the rubberized nubuck leather strap, which included to the watch’s style quotient without betraying its proclivities for water. But by the time that the Seastrong made its way to market this fall, Alpina did away with the vintage-style strap, reverting to its embossed, incorporated rubber strap. Granted, it’s not the most inspired design element of the whole bundle (especially considering it’s been recycled out of the previous generation Seastrong), but it works well enough for the task at hand, and keeps the Seastrong’s purpose as a capable dive watch.Bracelet fans take note — Alpina will be supplying the Seastrong on a new bracelet beginning next year, but if you can not wait till then, take solace in the fact that the watch appears stellar on a vast array of third-party straps, including my personal favorite: shark mesh.Build quality of Alpina watches is still quite good, with water resistance to 300 meters on some versions.
