Replica Guide Trusted Dealers Alpina Startimer Pilot Black Dial Black Fabric Strap Men’s Watch AL372B4FBS6 Item No. AL-372B4FBS6
Now, as divorced from reality as the theory may seem, the basic spirit of this Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 and these adventuresome aspirations feel somewhat warranted through its broad-shouldered case, tasteful applications of color, and clean, minimalist design language. It’s rare when a watch with a base-level automated movement comes along that really turns heads, especially in one of the most hotly contested segments in all watchmaking. Nonetheless, it’s even sexier when such a watch goes on to become one of the year’s most under-the-radar surprises, all from what boils down to some simple dial and bezel swap that ultimately breathes new life to the Alpina Seastrong collection.Rather than concentrate on what’s different about the new Alpina Seastrong Diver 300, what’s the same is almost as interesting — especially when you consider that its striking new identity is constructed atop the specific same 44mm situation and oversize crown of its predecessor. This time round, but the curved, ellipse-shaped indices on the dial and bezel provide a more pronounced comparison to the unique, angular form of this semi-square case, yielding a symmetry and purpose-built minimalism which seems to draw inspiration from aquatic icons like Panerai’s PAM 389, or even the Nautilus 5711 from Patek Philippe.Intentional or not, even the 5711’s signature “ears” at 3 and 9 o’clock show up here, giving the Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 Automatic an air of Gerald Genta’s porthole-shaped masterpiece — easily among the coolest silhouettes in watchmaking. What’s especially nice, however, is that despite a few subtle similarities between the aforementioned, not one of the new elements feel derivative — almost as though homage has been paid in fleeting glimpses, re-drawn out of memory.
