It’s no secret to our regular readers that we here at worn&wound love vintage designs. The retro comeback over the past few years has been wonderful, producing stunning pieces with a variety of inspirations. But perhaps some of the best work has come from the resurgence of the gentleman’s sporting watch. Not too sporty, but not too dressy either, these hybrids strike a sweet spot that works for almost any occasion. Super Compressor-style divers are a perfect example of this, and Alpina’s entry into the category looks to be a serious contender in a hotly contested space.
Today, we’re taking a look at the vintage-inspired Alpina Seastrong Diver Heritage, a watch that we first had a chance to play with at Basel last year. With its strong roots and Alpina’s reputation for quality production, does the Seastrong Diver Heritage live up to expectations? Let’s take a closer look.
