Renowned Italian dive watch brands have been leading the pack when it comes to the application of marine grade bronze for their watch cases. Squale, who began making dive watch cases way back in 1946, have recently released their latest impressive model in bronze - the Squale 50 atmos Bronze. It features a unique bronze case, manufactured in Italy of course, and has a beautiful sunburst dial with a recessed guilloché ring. Production is limited to just 100 pieces.
The distinctive bronze case with its large broad lugs boasts an outstanding two piece bronze bezel. The bezel's inlay is bronze blasted to a dark satin finish with engraved markers giving it an impressive three dimensional look. In total, four different finishes are used on the case to convey a remarkable appearance which varies under different lighting conditions.
This classic bronze diver, with a screw-in case back, has dimensions of 42mm x 14mm (16mm with crystal) for a comfortable presence on your wrist. Despite the high water resistance rating of 500 meters the case has been kept to a slim 14mm thanks to the unique case construction.
This highly recognizable shape features a 'VON' signed screw-down crown at the 2 o´clock position which is recessed and well protected against unwanted impact. Due to the recessed crown and the elegant flowing design of the case the watch is exceptionally comfortable to wear even on a smaller wrist. The hand-painted dial with the distinctly designed thick luminescent markers of Superluminova C3 provides excellent legibility in all lighting conditions.
The thick 120 click uni-directional bezel partners well with the satin bronze hands providing crucial, at a glance, information on remaining or elapsed dive-time. The scratch-resistant flat sapphire crystal is enhanced with anti-reflective treatment on the inside and protects this timepiece up to 500 meters below sea-level or 50 atmosphere of pressure.
The Squale 50 atmos Bronze is powered by one of the most reliable movements available, a Swiss made ETA 2824-2 automatic movement which provides mechanical reliability and accuracy under the toughest circumstances.
A purpose build tool-watch which is elegant and reliable, a perfect companion for every day adventures!
