THE SUPERAUTOMATIC 1975

THE WATCH

Alsta seeks to remind people to be purposeful, sophisticated and authentic by creating timepieces which embody those same qualities; purposeful in their ruggedness and waterproofness, sophisticated in their elegance despite being tough sports watches, and authentic in the fact that customers and enthusiasts of the brand are its key ambassadors, and the ownership journey is frictionless.

Throughout the 1950s, 60s and 70s, Alsta produced beautiful chronographs with numerous movements including Landeron and Valjoux units. These were both dress and sports models and are now extremely rare. The chronographs from the 50s are dressier and smaller and more robust sports pieces appeared in the 1960s and 70s.

The Alsta Superautomatic was first released in 1970 and was immortalised by the 1975 blockbuster movie 'JAWS'.

Alsta is proud to announce a faithful re-edition of the watch worn by Oceanographer Matt Hooper, played by Richard Dreyfuss, in the movie. It was the perfect choice for Hooper as, despite being from an affluent background, he eschewed the newest and shiniest things and chose craftmanship and quality over prestige.

The Superautomatic 1975 will be limited to 1975 pieces. It is manufactured and assembled in Switzerland and the UK and the movement is supplied by Seiko of Japan.
