Back from the depths of the ocean, and the depths of time, the Seastrong Diver Comtesse Quartz range is the worthy successor of the first water sports watches designed for women, created by Alpina nearly 60 years ago. But this is no revival, vintage style or backward-looking conservatism; the new Seastrong Diver Comtesse has well and truly dropped anchor in the 21st century!
A Real First
The Seastrong Diver Comtesse Quartz was born out of a fruitful union between the Seastrong Diver collections and the feminine yet sporty chic Comtesse range, whose ladies’ models already feature in the Maison’s Alpiner collection. Their union has given rise to these brand new diving watches exclusively for women.
For Women Who Dive
Designed to be used by those for whom the seas and oceans represent ground for exploration, the Seastrong Diver Comtesse Quartz is made for diving. It therefore has all the requisite features: guaranteed 300 m water resistance, graduated unidirectional bezel, screw-down caseback and crown and broad luminescent hands to ensure one’s immersion time in the depths is easy to see.
The Alpina Signature
The new Seastrong Diver Comtesse Quartz may be sporty at heart, but it has its glamorous side too. Alpina is offering four different variations, three steel or rubber straps and, even more excitingly, mother-of-pearl dials (blue or white) revealing iridescent reflections reminiscent of the surface of the ocean. Each piece displays its Alpina DNA through the Maison’s iconic red triangle on the seconds hand counterbalance, as well as at 12 o’clock on the unidirectional bezel and on the dial. On the caseback, you’ll find an engraving specific to Alpina diving watches, incorporating Alpine peaks and the trident of the deep sea.
The AL-240 quartz calibre will ensure the watch keeps perfectly accurate time (for nearly four years) and also shows the date, revealed through a window at 3 o’clock. As discreet as it is resilient and versatile, the new Seastrong Diver Comtesse Quartz features an impressively slim 34 mm steel case and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.
