    Squale 1545 Militaire

    Hello everyone, I'm new to this whole watch forum thing; I hope you guys can help out with my question. I'm interested in the Squale 1545 Militaire and I'm curious what are the differences between the Militaire and the Classic other than the Cyclops in terms of case, dials, crown, threads, etc. It seems that the Militaire is a new offering that's why I ask.

    Thanks!

    Most likely the SuperLuminova GL old radium. Atte vs. shiny dial. Hands are different.

    And the Militaire looks better.

    According to Gnomon: The new improved 40mm case is now more masculine with a thicker bezel for a better grip which translate also to a smoother and easier bezel action. The crown system has also been improved from the previous generation with deeper grooves on the crown for a better grip and also a more substantial screw threads for a more positive screwdown action. I think that's probably it. Otherwise it's a pretty standard Mil-Sub homage. For $550 list though I'd probably get a Ginault instead, which aren't much more than that second hand.

    Basically same stuff. One is a knock-off of Rolex Submariner and the other of Rolex Milsub.

    Thanks everyone for your help; I think I will be pulling the trigger on the new militaire from gnomon; I found customer service much friendlier than squalewatches.com.
