My partner James Bond recently shared the press release and some looks at the new 2012 Alpina Extreme diver, but because it is such a solid looking watch, I wanted to come back with a few more details. Actually, there are a three variations of the Extreme Diver — in fact the entire collection is brand new for 2012. To support the launch of the collection, Alpina secured a high profile Ambassador in actor/producer/writer William Baldwin. Baldwin will be the “face” of Alpina’s 2012 advertising campaign for its Extreme Diver watches– you can read all about it here. As Baldwin said, there is a definitely a “bold, athletic, cool-factor” to these watches…the watch looks great in all three variations — rubber, bracelet and mesh bracelet. Perhaps the best part about these watches—the price: $1,250 on rubber strap, $1,450 on full steel or steel mesh bracelet.
