About Alpina

In 1883, Alpina Swiss Watchmakers Corporation was established by Gottlieb Hauser. The original name of the brand was “Alpina Union Horlogère S.A. (UH)/ Schweizerische Uhrmacher-Genossenschaft”. In 2002, Alpina was purchased by Frédérique Constant SA – owned by Peter and Aletta Stas. Alpina’s headquarters are located in Geneva, Switzerland.

Gottlieb Hauser united independent Swiss watchmakers who were later on referred to as “Alpinists” – thereby giving the brand its name – Alpina.

Originally, Hauser intended for Alpina to optimize the production of timepieces and movements, but the brand ultimately ended up developing and producing its very own chronometers and in-house movements – also referred to as “calibers”.

About Alpina Seastrong

The Alpina Seastrong Divers Watch Collection was released by Alpina in 1969.

The Alpina Seastrong Collection consists of divers watches and sailing watches. These are typical sporty looking tool watches with a robust feel to them and a technical and professional look to them. Even though Alpina may not be a very famous brand, it offers you very good watches considering the money you spend on them As far as movements and price range are concerned, Alpina probably belongs in the same category of watch brands and manufacturers such as TAG Heuer, Longines and Oris. Alpina’s divers watches are somewhat similar in design to the Omega Seamaster Collection.

The fact that Alpina is a less common and less famous brand may actually be an advantage since it probably would make the brand more interesting. This very unusual brand could become an interesting topic among watch lovers, friends and acquaintances.
