Gone would be the derived mashup of tool and dress diver elements located on the outgoing Alpina Extreme Diver (reviewed here) version, in favor of a fresh, timeless, and certain aesthetic that gently lends priority to form over function — but barely at the cost of the latter, since the Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 Automatic remains a 300-meter dive watch, after all.In fact, I would also argue that the most striking design element is truly the lack thereof. Take, by way of instance, the way the Alpina Extreme Diver’s sword hands are replaced by a skeletonized handset, whose reduced surface area results in a cleaner, more unobtrusive view of the dial. Yes, these palms tear a comparatively familiar page out of the Panerai Luminor Submersible publication, but the signature isn’t exclusive to Panerai, and it works well in complementing the minimalist aesthetic.Then there’s not having a totally graduated minute track on the sloped chapter ring, which preserves the dial’s thickness while further opening the dial up and gives the rounded baton indices plenty of space to shine. And shine they do as the applied polished surrounds play with any available light, while the luminous centers shine reassuringly back from the dark. Granted, there’s not a ton of luminous paint them — but a 1000-lumen burst in the LED flashlight was enough to keep the dial legible into the wee hours of the afternoon. Conversely, the omission of lots of the dial’s perceptible details such as a luminous second hand or a minute track causes a distinct lack of accuracy, which may disturb those who favor their sailors with much more purposeful visual cues.However, this is not an ISO-rated diver, nor does it expect to be one — a mindset that I was surprised to find extremely refreshing on the wrist. Rather, Alpina lets its confidence-inspiring construct quality do the speaking, resulting in its very own distinct aesthetic that felt just as at home in an alpine lake, as it did around the conference table at the marina.
