With this 2017 Baselworld novelty, Alpina continues to break barriers all the while preserving its design spirit and traditional Swiss excellence

Alpina has been a reference with its diving watch collection since the 1960s when the Seastrong “10” was already capable of reaching 200m/660 ft. In 2015 and 2016, the brand introduced two sports smartwatches for women and men. This year Alpina achieves new heights with its brand new diving horological smartwatch.

With the AL-282 module technology created in collaboration with MMT, you can easily pair your Seastrong Horological Smartwatch to your iOS or Android phone through the MMT-365 app and immediately start using the multiple functions. You will be able to receive Call & Email Notifications, track your Activity throughout the day, monitor your Sleep Patterns during the night, set up Sleep Cycle Alarms to wake up fully energized, set Get-Active Alerts to have a more active lifestyle, automatically update your watch’s Time & Date, receive health tip, via the Dynamic Coaching, the Worldtimer keeps track of your hometown’s time, store your data on a Cloud & restore it if you loose your phone or watch.

The Seastrong Horological Smartwatch is faithful to the traditional Swiss watchmaking codes. The design was inspired by the historical Alpina diving watches featuring a black or blue analogical dial with the iconic Alpina logo at 12 o’clock. A 44m fiberglass case featuring a 60 minute uni-directional turning bezel; an important “fail-safe” feature in all diver watches which prevents the number of elapsed minutes to be accidentally decreased. The watch holds a 100m/330ft water-resistance and the luminous hands, indexes and markers which allow for perfect visibility under challenging circumstances. The all-purpose rubber strap perfect for the casual wearer as well as the recreational diver. The collection presents 4 models, each sporting a different bezel color: black, green, orange and navy blue. This new model carries on the tradition by truly representing the outdoor, adventure-seeking brand that is Alpina.
