    Re: Squale Owner's Club (Unofficial)

    you guys are a SERIOUSLY BAD influence on my wallet. but my Heritage says hello anyway. and i love it! the bezel distinguishes itself enough from just being another sub homage, and i love the dial. im a sucker for vintage looks. curiously though, when i unscrewed the crown to set the time and date, i noticed the time moved forward only when i turned the crown counter clockwise, which is opposite to what is normal. anyone else encountered this? I dont see this as a detriment in anyway, just strange as it goes against muscle memory.

    Congratulations on your new Squale!

    Also, I only know of watches having to turn the crown counter clockwise to set the time. You shouldn't be doing it clockwise as that might damage the movement and certainly wont help with the date function.

    Is this because you're in Australia like how the water in your toilets flush the opposite way as ours in the US?

    Seriously, I know my ETA and Seiko movements turn in opposite directions (forgot which way for each) to advance the time forward.

    I'm in the same boat as you -- can't wait to get the 50 in my hands!!!! Couple of more days and I'll be happy to report my experience. This watch seems to meet so many of my wants in a watch..

    Well after one too many beers on a saturday afternoon I ordered my first Squale! When I woke up this morning the wife asked me if I realized what I had ordered last night? I was instantly filled with excitement although the look on her face was not the same! Needless to say no regrets here can't wait to share some pictures!

    Congrats on your Heritage !

    This must be your first ETA 2824-2 powered watch, right ? The crown turns anti-clockwise to move the hands clockwise on an ETA 2824-2 as opposed to most other movements, like Seikos and such.

    No need to freak out !

    Enjoy your new baby.
