How much does an Alpina Seastrong watch cost?

As far as Swiss watchmakers go, Alpina has been steadily producing luxury watches that have evolved since the company started. Alpina has been closely observing the way the horological industry progresses. This allowed them to produce groundbreaking results, leading to the creation of several iconic watches throughout the years. Alpina’s innovative approach towards sports watches became the global standard that a lot of companies follow. 

Prices for the Alpina Seastrong Diver Gyre Gents and Ladies Models

The Alpina Seastrong Diver Gyre is the latest addition to the Seastrong collection. Coming in with a mission towards marine conservation, this watch brandishes a lightweight exterior that is made with recycled PA 6 (Polyamide 6/Nylon). These are the types of plastic that are usually used in creating fishing nets and rods. This means that small particles tend to fall off after every use, leaving a negative impact on marine life. 

The Seastrong Diver Gyre has a fairly simple and minimalistic design that a lot of enthusiasts may turn away. But that does not mean that it lacks the features and functionalities of a diver’s watch.

The Seastrong Diver Gyre has two versions: The Seastrong Diver Gyre Gents and the Seastrong Diver Gyre Ladies. Each is modified for maximum compatibility with its respective targets. The Gents version has a 44mm diameter case that is made entirely with recycled PA 6. Despite its lightweight design, this model comes with an AL-525 caliber and is equipped with automatic winding. The hour markings and 60min unidirectional bezel are both coated with luminous markers, providing more readability underwater.

The Seastrong Diver Gyre Ladies, on the other hand, has the same features and functionalities. The only difference is the 36mm diameter of the case and a slimmer strap to fit the average wrists of women.

The Seastrong Diver Gyre Gents is currently priced at $1,595 USD, while the Ladies version is $1,495 USD. Though the prices are higher than expected, it is worth knowing that $100 USD of every purchase goes to the National Park Foundation. Plus, it is a product of recycled materials gathered from the ocean.

Prices for the Alpina Seastrong Diver Heritage Models

The Seastrong Diver Heritage is the Super Compressor’s direct descendant, giving it the name Seastrong Diver Heritage. It perfectly copies the design and structure of the Super Compressor, making it a favorite among vintage collectors. 

As mentioned before, the Seastrong Diver Heritage is a tribute model for the Super Compressor or the Alpina 10. This means that it maintained the same design with a few minor tweaks to improve wearability and functionality. Its 42mm diameter stainless steel case gives it a polished look and the rounder bezel complements the whole design perfectly well. The one thing that sets aside this model from the Seastrong collection is its two screw-down crowns. The crown with the Alpina emblem controls the time, date, and winding; while the second crown controls the internal dive bezel. 

The Seastrong Diver Heritage is equipped with the AL-525 caliber movement that allows automatic winding and precision. This caliber is engineered to work similarly with the SW200, but with a few improvements in the rotor assembly. This diver’s watch can reach up to 30 bar underwater, which is roughly 300 meters deep.

The Seastrong Diver Heritage is a simple yet robust wristwatch that offers a lot more than its size. The price for this vintage model starts at $1,695 USD. The price is fairly reasonable due to its heritage and the design offers flexibility with matching outfits.

Prices for the Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 Models

The Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 is created using Alpina’s main principles for sports watches. According to Alpina, sports watches should be robust and maintain an accurate reading of the time no matter how harsh the environment is. For diving watches, it is crucial to have these four characteristics to provide the utmost functionality to avoid damaging effects during any recreational activity. These four characteristics are: antimagnetic, shock resistant, water resistant, and must come in a stainless steel case.

With these in mind, Alpina has consistently produced solid sports watches throughout the years. The Seastrong Diver 300 is a prime example of a robust diver’s watch that gained the approval of many recreational divers around the world. Equipped with a 44mm bulky stainless steel case and a readable dial, the Seastrong Diver 300 proved to be an improved version of the Alpina 10 as well as the aforementioned Seastrong Diver Heritage. Though it is not the ideal watch for those with smaller wrists, it still delivers with its durability and the weight would not be a problem underwater.

The AL-525 caliber movement is also used in the Seastrong Diver 300 to add consistency to the whole collection. Much like its predecessors and its fellow Seastrong models, the Seastrong Diver 300 can reach up to 300 meters of water resistance; hence the name, Diver 300. 

The Seastrong Diver 300 is currently priced at $1,395 USD. It is cheaper than the previous models, but the functionalities remain the same. It is a great choice for both recreational divers and casual wearers alike.

Prices for the Alpina Seastrong Diver GMT Watches

Alpina has been producing Seastrong watches with such variety and, at the same time, each is similar in some aspects. With the Alpina Seastrong Diver GMT, Alpina introduced a unique take on the Seastrong series. 

For the most part, the design of the dial and the case are similar to the Seastrong Diver series. It has a 44mm stainless steel case that is coated with titanium PVD. The case is quite bulky, but its rubber strap complements the size and balances its overall proportion. Unlike the other models in the Seastrong collection, the Seastrong Diver GMT has an AL-247 quartz caliber. It may not have an automatic winding, but its battery life can last up to 25 months. It is more than enough time for an average non-mechanical watch. 

The bezel of the Seastrong Diver GMT is the main selling point when it comes to design. It has a 60min unidirectional bezel with white color luminous markers. The Seastrong Diver GMT comes with three color variations: blue, grey, and orange. The blue and grey variants exude a formality, while the orange one is mainly for flexibility in style. Alpina wanted to create sports or diver’s watches that are versatile in both design and functionality. 

The Seastrong Diver GMT is a solid diver’s watch that is affordable at best and a precise movement. It is currently marketed at the price of $795 USD, which is a great choice as a starter luxury watch.

Prices for the Alpina Seastrong Diver Comtesse Series

The Alpina Seastrong Diver Comtesse is another great addition to the Seastrong collection. It is a minimalist sports watch that offers flexibility in style. 

As a sports watch, the Seastrong Diver Comtesse provides a variety of colors and straps to choose from, providing a good balance between divers and a vanity watch that people can wear anywhere. Aside from a rubber strap, it also comes with a stainless steel bracelet to give it more of a formal style rather than its usual sporty look. The Seastrong Diver Comtesse also has the smallest case in the whole collection. Sporting a 34mm stainless steel case, the weight would not pose a problem regardless of the wearer. It has a mother-of-pearl dial that gives the Comtesse a sleek overall design while providing accurate readability either on land or underwater.

This model comes with the Alpina AL-247 quartz movement with a battery life that can last up to 45 months of usage without the need of changing batteries from time to time. The price of the Seastrong Diver Comtesse is a bit higher than the Diver GMT. For $1,050 USD, the Seastrong Comtesse brings with it the essential functions that a divers watch should have.

Vintage Alpina Seastrong — Is it a good investment?

The Seastrong collection is made out of watches that took inspiration from the Alpina 10 Super Compressor. This means that opting for their predecessor may not be a great investment in the long run, given that the Seastrong Diver Heritage is a piece-by-piece rendition of the Super Compressor. It may be perfect for hardcore vintage collectors, but the same cannot be said for beginner collectors.

History Behind the Alpina Seastrong

Alpina has been passionate about creating top-notch sports watches throughout their watchmaking years. Instilling their four main principles in sports watches, the Swiss company successfully built the iconic Alpina 4 and Alpina 10 Super Compressor in the 1970s. These two pioneer models, specifically the Super Compressor, laid the foundation to create the Alpina Seastrong collection. The dials and case designs did not go through any change to keep their authenticity as both descendants and tribute watches.

The Seastrong collection embodies Alpina’s passion for producing sports watches that transcend beyond land. With more than a hundred years of watchmaking expertise, Alpina never failed to deliver high-utility watches that are suitable for everyone.

Reasons to Buy an Alpina Seastrong Watch

The reasons for buying Alpina Seastrong watches can be summed up in two main points. This is mainly because of how it targets a wide spectrum of patrons due to its versatility in style and functionality.

1. The Seastrong collection is not entirely for diving.

It does not matter whether it is for diving or fashion purposes, the Alpina Seastrong offers a variety of choices in which patrons can mix and match their favored designs. That is why it is not exclusively made for divers.

2. The prices are not as expensive as most luxury brands.

The prices of all the Alpina Seastrong watches are not as expensive as one might think. Even though Alpina is considered a luxury watch brand, the prices are considerably low and are at a fairly reasonable range. 

Alpina Seastrong: An All-Around Durable Dive Watch

Despite the simplistic design present in the Seastrong collection, the heritage of each watch model is something to behold. Instead of scrapping and reinventing a newer version of its predecessors, Alpina decided to hold its ground and retain most of the structural design. Going for minor tweaks is what made the Seastrong a solid collection that exudes subtle elegance and freshness in each model. The Alpina Seastrong collection truly shines as a sports watch that is both reliable and prioritizes durability, making it an all-around watch suitable for everyone.
