What makes a watch successful? Sometimes it is advertising, sometimes it is the brand name, but sometimes it is because the watch is a great timepiece and offers great value. The Alpina Extreme Diver models have made many watch buyers very happy since their release a little over a year ago. Despite being amongst the most expensive, non-manufacture models in the collection, you are getting a lot of quality and style for the money. Early in 2010 several new variations have been added in the collection. I was invited to play with them at Alpina headquarters in Geneva, where I shot a video review for MattBaily.ca.

The Club Automatic is the first of the watches to be presented. I introduced the Club Collections in a previous post on the Baily Blog. It essentially represents Alpina's take on elegant styles. It does not veer too far away from the company's distinctive character and the watches are far from plain or traditional. In the following video you will see three versions of the three-hand Club Automatic and how it looks on the wrist. Make sure you watch it in 1080p HD to enjoy these fine pieces in all detail.

Being invited to visit Frédérique Constant and Alpina' headquarters in Geneva, I packed my G11 and HD camcorder and made my way to Plan-les-Ouates. This neighbourhood, as I found out, is home to some of the most prestigious watch companies in the world. Since I had never visited this area before, I opted for the roughly thirty minute walk from the train station to discover it. On the way I encountered manufacturing facilities for Rolex, Patek Philippe, and several other watchmaking giants.
