It's a craps-shoot, and I don't play craps. At least not with businesses I'm totally unfamiliar with!
Neither one has a feedback score that instills confidence in me- especially when I'm sending my hard-earned money to someone I don't know.
Also your watch isn't shown on the Alpina website, which probably indicates it is a discontinued model. And considering Alpina's 2022 stock is over $1000 CHEAPER, I'd definitely shop elsewhere!

There is probably no difference since both links are file photos. If you look close you will see that there are two different shippers. Amazon is one and a third party is the second. I would bet Amazon has a lot more pricing power than a third party plus there doesn't appear to be any interest in those models (no feedback on either link). So you can have a big difference in pricing depending on who's selling/supplying the items.

If you are looking for legit deals, there are FleaBay authorized sellers with a track record. Oftentimes unsold inventory at reduced prices. I'd avoid any seller anywhere that does not post a real picture of an actual watch.
