Alpina, a Swiss watch manufacturer that was in 1883, has just unveiled their new Seastrong Diver Gyre Automatic line. The word “Gyre” is a reference to the start-up Gyre Watch who sources recycled material and gyres, circular ocean currents where a vast majority of the plastic waste in the ocean can be found. With this partnership, they have made the new Seastrong Diver Gyre Automatic’s case out of fishing nets that have been recycled. Alpina has created the new Seastrong Diver Gyre Automatic range in five different variations, including three men’s models and two ladies’ models. Each of these watches is powered by the AL-525 automatic movement that includes hours, minutes, seconds hands and it also tells the date. Each of the editions will be limited to just 1,883 pieces, a reference to the year that Alpina was founded. Each will come with an eco-friendly box that includes recycled material. Alpina will be launching this new line on June 8th, 2020, which happens to be World Oceans Day. A coincidence? Absolutely not. Alpina is aiming to draw attention to the major ocean cleanups that need to take place if we want to preserve our oceans. Additionally, Alpina is supporting the Surfrider Foundation Europe with the launch of this new watch. To learn more, be sure to click the button below.
