Launched in 2008, the Alpina Extreme Diver 1000 Meters watch follows the footsteps of its predecessors from same line – the Alpina Extreme Regulator, Alpina Extreme Automatic and the Alpina Manufacture Regulator – all made to explore the summits.
Featuring an angular and sophisticated design, the newly-released Alpina Extreme Diver 1000 Meters comes equipped with a unidirectional rotating bezel that measures elapsed time in minutes for the first fifteen minutes and then in ten minute segments after that. The luminous triangle marker highlights the 12 o’clock position.
The black watch dial displays the date within a half-moon shaped display positioned at 3 o’clock. The day of the week is also displayed within the brand’s famous red triangle. Alpina have kept this red triangle as a form of decoration in the centre of the watch face.

Dressed in a 48 mm diameter case in steel, the Alpina Extreme Diver 1000 Meters offers great visibility for time reading even in darkness of the ocean-depths, thanks to luminescent watch hands, Arabic numerals and luminous index markers.
This diving watch houses the automatic winding mechanical calibre AL-525, like the Alpina Extreme Automatic model. This movement ensures a 42-hour power reserve, a blue-stained face decorated with mother of pearl and can be viewed through a sapphire glass window.
The helium escape valve located on the edge at the 10 o’clock position is an essential feature of a diving watch. This escape valve, which is used during the decompression stop, allows the Alpina Extreme Diver 1000 Meters mechanism to remain intact.
The Alpina Extreme Diver 1000 Meters is available in two versions; one is made of surgical grade stainless steel with a black dial and the other is “Full Black”, i.e. has a PVD case and a black dial.
