The high visibility of the color orange

It is already for a long time confessed that the color orange is the most visible color. The same can be considered for the visibility under water, because the brightness always becomes less and more colors will be absorbed, especially orange. This was taken into consideration by the luxury watch company Alpina and has provided the new diver’s watch with orange numbers on the bezel. Due to the fact that under water the exact time is very important to survive Alpina created these unique watches to prevent the not readability of how many minutes are left still the oxygen is empty.

Indispensable to dive

The new Alpina 300 Extreme Diver 300 Orange has special complications that have to be integrated in a diver’s watch. The Aplina watch is water-resistant up to 300 meters; moreover it has a screwed-in crown, as well as a screwed-down case back. In order to dive it is also very important to have a unidirectional rotating 60 minutes bezel which was taken into consideration when designing the watch. Besides, the indexes on the bezel are luminescent and Alpina has used a special kind of sapphire glass to avoid reflections.
