    Alpina Extreme Sailing

    Has anyone had any experience with this watch? Has it stood up well? Does it wear large or smaller than the 44mm size. I have a 7 3/8" wrist.

    Very stout watch, wears at least as big as it's size, so with your wrist it should fit fine.

    I have a Seastrong 300 Auto, and it uses the same 44mm case – fits great on my 6.75" wrist, though it is clearly a 44mm watch. Doesn't have super long lugs though, which helps it wear within proportion.

    Recently purchased this watch on bracelet. Anyone know if or how to get half links for it?

    Sadly being in the same boat there are no half links for the bracelet I've been told. Mine is either too tight or loose. I may keep my Sailing on a isofrane or get a strapcode bracelet.

    Really like the watch however I need to be comfortable while wearing it. And it is either WAY too tight or WAY too loose. I refer bracelets over anything else, especially on a diver (ish? yes its a sailing watch) Real shame they did not include at least one half link. Decided to send it on to a new home where it can hopefully be loved.
