The Seastrong Diver has been a staple of Alpina’s lineup since the 1960s. It’s always been a solid tool watch, and in recent years has been the canvas onto which Alpina has drawn many of their newest dive watch designs. The newest edition to the Seastrong line is the 44mm Seastrong Diver 300, available in stainless steel with both titanium and bronze PVD coating. Its design takes cues from the Seastrong 10, Alpina’s classic ’60s diver, which was rated to an extremely impressive-for-the-time depth of 200 meters. With 300 meters of water resistance, this modern version is upsized not just in dimensions, but technical specs as well. Let’s take a closer look at some of the details.

First and foremost, this watch has options galore. In addition to the two distinct case finishes, Alpina is offering the Seastrong in grey, blue, and beige dial/bezel combinations. There would seem to be something for everyone’s taste, but I would think the bronze PVD coated case with a brown bezel and black dial is the most in tune with the general vibe the watch is putting out. I like the idea and (on a serious budget) this could be a fun summer look.
