It is a classic 500 meter professional diver the with the characteristic and famous “von Büren” case. This case was part of lots of famous dive watches over decades, as Squale supplied these also to other big and small Swiss brands.
This unique and highly recognizable shape features a signe screw-down crown on the 4 o’clock position which is recessed and well protected against unwanted impact. Due to the recessed crown and the elegant flowing design of the polished case the watch is exceptionally comfortable to wear, even on a smaller wrist. Although the case has a diameter of 42 mm and a hight of 13 mm.
The smooth, coin-shaped 60 clicks uni-directional bezel partners very well with the orange minute hand providing crucial information on remaining or elapsed dive-time. The dial provides that at a glance. The scratch-resistant sapphire crystal is enhanced with anti-reflective treatment on both sides and protects the Squale Ocean blasted up to 500 meters below sea-level or 50 atmosphere of pressure.
The hand-painted blue sunburst dial with the distinctly designed luminescent markers of Super LumiNova provides excellent legibility in every low-light situation.
The great attention to detail give this iconic timepiece a contemporary look and feel but still paying respect to its classic, unique design and brand philosophy.
The Swiss Made ETA 2824 automatic movement gives the Squale 50 Atmos Ocean blasted 1521-026 its mechanical reliability and accuracy under the toughest circumstances. It also provides a power reserve of approximately 38 hours.
The Squale 50 Atmos Ocean blasted 1521-026 is a purpose built tool-watch which is elegant and reliable and therefore a perfect companion for every day adventures. It can be purchased with different straps – with a stainless steel bracelet, rubber straps in different colors (all matching the dial of course) or vintage leather straps. While the latter are definitely highly attractive may a rubber strap be the better choice for the regular diver because of its high resistance to saltwater.
