Another rugged outdoors timepiece that was inspired by the original Surf n Ski. This was targeted at the wrists of the glamorous ski crowds of Aspen and St Moritz and the Californian surf scene. Alsta attention to detail in recreating the Surf n Ski as close to the original as possible was uncompromising. The Alsta Surf n Ski is an outdoor watch that is styled to be worn on any occasion. It is even made to be used as a dive watch and therefore has a unidirectional bezel which removes the risk of it being accidentally turned while underwater which could result in a fatal miscalculation of dive time. The original Surf n Ski was made waterproof to 666ft however, tempting as it was to recreate that wonderfully eccentric 666ft, Alsta decided to manufacture and test the new Surf n Ski to withstand the pressure of depths of 999ft which is 300m or 29 atm, the same as the Nautoscaph. The Surf n Ski is manufactured and tested to be anti-magnetic to a field strength of 4,800 A/m (ISO 764 compliant) and shock-resistant to ISO 1413 standard which should be sufficient for knocks endured on the snow, the ice, or the waves

Description

Alsta – A Classic Watch Brand Reborn

Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, Alsta made beautifully-engineered wristwatches for stylish men and women of intellectual and creative substance. People who required precision and robustness; scientists, engineers, and industrialists as well as style-setters and the self-made. It succumbed in the late 1970s, along with many independent watchmakers, to the “quartz crisis”. Hundreds of watch manufacturers went out of business as the world feared the end for mechanical watches. Sadly, before this vision was seen to be unfounded, many respected names, including Alsta, disappeared.

Alsta was resurrected in 2014 and after two years in the making, our first wristwatch for over 40 years was released in 2017. Alsta was inspired by the Nautoscaph dive watch as worn by Richard Dreyfuss as Matt Hooper in the classic movie, Jaws and we chose the Nautoscaph II to revive and lead the resurrection of Alsta in the 21st Century. Alsta is thrilled that the Nautoscaph II has been so well received by Alsta enthusiasts and by new discoverers of the brand.

In 2018, Alsta presented to you the next two timepieces; the Nautoscaph III and the Surf n Ski which were equally well received.

Now, in 2019, Alsta is thrilled to present the watch that Alsta enthusiasts have been asking for since day one; the Nautoscaph Superautomatic. This is the 21st-century iteration of the classic which Matt Hooper chose as his dive companion.
