Seastrong Monday!

 

This butch and mighty Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 automatic is undoubtedly a large watch, like Alpina's most others, but its super comfortable to wear with great balance.

On paper, it compares to a Samurai, but is equally comfortable though it presents much larger than the Samurai on the wrist.

I love the overall simplicity and return to roots designs of Alpina in general, and this watch is no exception. Matte black dial, partially skeletonized but very legible hands set, the Red accents in the seconds hand counterbalance and the lume pip, and finally the lumed bezel, all come together for a very high end industrial design and feel.

This watch worn on a very comfortable stock tropical strap with signed buckle.
