    Yes I was using the case removal tool with the 3 adjustable pins but it still would not unscrew. I suspect one would need a case vise clamp of some sort for the job...

    Cool. A vice with appropriate protection for the case would probably be needed but if the watch is new and doesn't need regulation or a service personally I'd avoid opening up the back because you'll be breaking the seal that was made when it was originally built. With older watches where I don't know their history I'm not so picky but with brand new watches I tend to leave alone if everything is working as it should be :)

    These are 1521 movements before they are assembled. I hope that saves you a job.

    Well, I just received MY new 20 Atmos Maxi (still trying to get used to that name - it must sound different in Italian ) that I picked up from Nick on the WUS sales forum.

    All I can say is that the photos and description that Nick posted didn't do this baby justice. Besides there being no visible sign anywhere that this thing has ever been worn, the watch itself looks much more "alive" in person than in photos. It isn't gaudy, though, so it suits me perfectly and the shape fits my 6-3/8" wrist really well.

    The only two drawbacks I see so far (and I'm admittedly still in the "have a new girlfriend" stage) are that the lume is very meagre, especially on the indices, and to my eye the cyclops really distracts and detracts from an otherwise beautiful and classy face. At least I have the option to remove that, which I will at my earliest opportunity.

    Overall I'm very happy to have this new addition!

    Nice.

    If you're wondering about the name: "Maxi" it actually comes from Rolex and it means that the dial has the largest markers available for the Submariner style. If you want to say it without it sounding like something else I just pronounce it as: "Max-ih" instead of "Max-ee".

    Congrats on the pickup, I've got one myself and it's definitely a high-quality piece. I love the way the tolerances and the machining is so precise on the Squales.

    Been back and forth on watches... skx series to raven to steinhart and settled on the squale atmos 20 maxi that I just ordered. Looking forward to wearing my first dive watch! Also I bought from gnomon... do they still include a free nato and if so is there any way to request a specific color? Thanks!

    Congratulations, you definitely made the right choice!

    Yes, they still include a free NATO; I think you can request a specific color, although I'm not 100% sure. Mine came with a black NATO with a white stripe down the center.

    Congrats on your purchase. My strap he sent was straight up black. I recommend purchasing a extra thick zulu/NATO strap.
