If you really, and I mean really sail and race boats, which watches would you pick for your top ten! I was trolling the internet and came across what I thought was a cool run down of the top ten boating watches at Gear Patrol. They laid the list out pretty well and I picked my favorite from the bunch – the Alpina Regatta Yachtimer (number 2 on the list).
Don’t get me wrong, I would love the Rolex offering, but can just picture myself sipping drinks from the dock with that piece for fear of a sailing scratch. The Yachty is up to the task and more, but who wants to mess it up.
This Alpina comes in at $3,995.00 and can be worn hard on the open seas. It has a less flashy appeal that seems synonymous with the sea/ocean. What would be your pick?
The watch shown is an Alpina Adventure Extreme Regatta Yachtimer (Ref: AL-880LB4V6)
