    What is so wrong about the Squale Master ltd edition?

    I recently fell in love with the Squale Master in black, but there is something I don't get: they are still available, which means in 2 years they did not manage to sell 300 off them!

    On on the outside, it seems great. Nice case, looks good, I love those hands, funcky brand, decent movement with an added complication (power reserve indication) added by reputable company, for about usd 2500. Why is there no love for them?
    - is it because it's too much money for a Squale? (Would be akin to buying a super expensive vw such as the phantom?)
    - is it because there are better watches in that price range (I'd be keen to see them)
    - is it because when you saved 2.5k you might as well save up for something more prestigious?

    im really curious to know all of your oppinions. As background, I loved the Master but started researching the brand and decided to go with the blue 50 atmos, as I thought it give me more of the experience of the brand for less then half the price. But as I am about to pull the trigger on the 50 ATM, I got in doubt. Should I go for the the cheaper option as the weekend / beach watch I have been looking for (and that, btw, I really loved) and keep saving for my grails, our should I get the more expensive one that caught my eye originally? Decisions, decisions, decisions...

    Personally, I dislike PR meters, and the price seems way out of line for what you are actually getting. If it were priced the same as or slightly higher than the 50amtos, I'd still take the 50 every time.

    I dont think its a limited edition. I might be wrong. If you like it go for it. The thing with squale is that their top watch is the 50 atmos imo.

    So most people get the 5o atmos cuz its a more appealing design it fit most wrists and wallets and its the famous case used by blanpain, heuer etc. But if you can afford/justify the master and like it better than the 50 atmos, go for it.

    as for me I grow out of squale, in the 50 atmos range I prefer the oris aquis, and the master range I prefer a tudor.

    As far as I know nothing ails the Master it's just a case of for that sort of money a buyer could get a more "prestigious" brand and for those of who are a bit more in the know it just seems rather a lot for what you're getting.

    Squale makes fantastic watches but at this price I would have to pass!

    Aside from calling it a Master Limited Edition, at that price it makes more sense to buy a Tudor or save a bit more for an Omega. It's a lot of money and I just can't see beyond the micro-brand at that price point.

    I do really like the Squale Pan Am.
