Last year Alpina launched its Extreme Diver 1000 Meters. For Spring/Summer 2009, Alpina introduces four new dials: Yellowtail, Orange Sunset, Côte d’Azur and Black Ocean. The Extreme Diver 1000 Meters has a 48mm black PVD steel case with a unidirectional rotating bezel displaying a luminous minute indication. The bezel measures elapsed time in minutes for the first fifteen minutes and then in ten minute segments after that. A luminous triangle marker highlights the 12 o’clock position.
The watch also features an automatic helium escape value at 10 o’clock. The black dials offer optimized readability: Arabic figures, hands and applied indexes are coated with colored SuperLuminova. The date at 3 o’clock is displayed in a half-moon shaped aperture. Under the dial, the Alpina Extreme Diver 1000 Meters features an automatic movement with a power reserve of 42 hours. The movement, with its black rotor, can be viewed through a sapphire case back.
