Alpina Unveils A Dive Watch Made Out Of Recycled Bottles & Fishing Nets

Jun 8, 2020

Category: Style

Our oceans have become increasingly polluted over the last century, with years of dumping culminating in an accumulated floating body of trash and ocean plastic that covers 1.6M square-kilometers, known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. And it was ongoing environmental marine issues like this that recently prompted the release of Alpina’s Limited Edition Seastrong Diver Gyre Automatic Watch.

Launched to support World Ocean Day (June 8th, 2020), the limited-edition Alpina features a 44mm case constructed from a special composite derived from 70% recycled ocean plastics from abandoned fishing nets (and 30% fiberglass). The watch is also sold with a two-tone NATO-style strap made from recycled bottles, and a black vegetable leather strap from recycled apple waste. Water-resistant to 300m, the Limited Edition Seastrong Diver Gyre is powered by an AL-525 automatic movement and boasts a unidirectional bezel. Available in regular or smoked blue, each watch is also sold in a special presentation box that’s also entirely composed of various recycled materials. Limited to 1,883 units — a nod to the year the German brand was founded — each, the Alpina Limited Edition Seastrong Diver Gyre Automatic Watch is available now, with pricing set at $1,395.

Purchase: $1,395
