Closer Look: 2012 Alpina Extreme Dive Watch Collection
by Kyle Stults on March 13, 2012

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.
