The Squale Special Edition dive watch is inspired by the first model that Charles von Büren created in Neuchâtel, Switzerland with the Squale logo and celebrates the 60th anniversary of the brand. It also symbolizes the profound bond of friendship between the two families who are behind Squale's history of success - the founding Von Büren family and the current driving force - the Maggi family. This iconic watch is a blend of tradition and innovation and once again highlights Squale's true soul - the professional dive watch.
An elegant and classic vintage styled 300 meter dive watch with the characteristic and famous "von Büren" case. A watch case that was part of many famous dive-watches over the decades, as Squale also supplied these to other big and small Swiss brands. A recognition of the sheer quality of engineering and timeless design by Squale founder: Charles von Büren.
This classic diver has a screw-in case back, and a 316L stainless steel case with dimesions of 39mm x 13mm. The short lug to lug dimension of 48.5mm as well as curved down lug ends ensures a comfortable fit on your wrist. Despite the high water resistance rating of 300 meters the case has been kept to a slim 12mm thanks to the unique case construction.
This highly recognizable shape features a large signed screw-down crown at the 3 o´clock position which is easy to grip and screws in and out very smoothly. The hand-painted matt black dial with the distinctly designed luminescent markers of old radium Superluminova provides excellent legibility in all lighting conditions.
The uni-directional bezel features a distinctive crystal glass insert for a true vintage look. Whilst the scratch-resistant box shaped sapphire crystal is enhanced with anti-reflective treatment and protects this timepiece up to 300 meters below sea-level or 30 atmosphere of pressure.
The Squale Special Edition is powered by a Swiss made Sellita SW 200 automatic movement which provides mechanical reliability and accuracy under the toughest circumstances. It has a quickset date funcion and displays the date at the 6 o'clock position.
Despite big groups prevailing today in the watch industry this special edition model demonstrates that Squale has not lost its identity and continues on with its core values - to produce reliable, superbly designed and elegant professional dive watches for users with the highest demands.
