Time to let another of my vintage divers go to a new home.
This is a fantastic automatic diver at a "Medium"size
Keeps good time and power reserve. Considering
its age, the watch is in great condition - especially the stunning
black sunburst dial. The signed crown winds nicely and is screw down.
Date sets and flips over correctly. The crystal has a few minor marks,
but nothing that detracts. The case has wear - commensurate with its age.
But again no nasty digs or scratches. The two tone Bezel sets this apart
from most other watches. Again in great condition and is fully functional
uni-directional. Nice and solid rotation. The hands are original and there
is a little lume loss on the minutes hand, does not detract and matches
the lume on the dial.
INFO ABOUT THE COMPANY:
In the 70's Squale introduced the first 1000 meters diver watch with sapphire crystal
and with a revolutionary bezel that will only move under elastic pressure, rotating in
Squale continued to produce for other brands and has begun providing watches in a
non official way to special corps of many armies including the paratroopers of the Folgore
Italian Sub The Carabinieri, and the division of the Italian Navy.
Squale for decades has become synonymous with quality and reference point of diving
watches worldwide.Super, Master, Medium, and 1000M cases, were sold to brands such as
Altanus Genève, Arlon, Potens Prima, Prima Flic, Jean Perret Geneva, Ocean Diver / Blandford,
Deman Watch, Margi, Berio, Eagle Star Genève, La Spirotechnique, Wertex, Carlson Tavernier
Geneva and Sinn.
500m Cases with crown at 4 were sold to brands like Airin, Dodane, Blancpain, Tag Heuer,
Doxa, Zeno and Auricoste. Just to to name a few. In particular TagHeuer, Doxa and Auricoste
in their Spirotechnique versions and Balncpain in the Bund 3H.
These gave Squale the international prestige in the early 70s. Thanks to the commercial success.
In 1974, Squale decided to market their own watches as an independent entity,
with their own cases, and now alone with Squale name on the dial.
The relaunch of The Squale brand in February 2010 and its new production
in Grenchen in the Swiss Jura valley portend an exciting future for the brand.
