    And... Resolve dissolved. A Squale 20 Atmos DLC is now astride my wrist.

    Perhaps a review of it when you have some time.

    Here's my micro review after 24hrs. This is an ideally sized 40mm Sub homage. The shape of the case is well executed and wrist hugging. The 120 click bezel is beautifully sloped with a tasteful, yet grippable coin edge.



    The ETA 2824 is running just +4 sec. Check!



    Cyclops successfully removed. Check!



    Engraved Squale caseback



    The prominent and smooth operating crown is signed with the Squale crown logo. In tribute to the Stealth Submariner mod created by Project X Designs, I removed the cyclops, added the NATO (same one they use) from The Strap Shop, and decided to install shoulderless springbars (only removable by cutting).



    I should hasten to add that the stock bracelet is of outstanding construction. Solid links and end links with screw pins and a scissor deployant locking clasp. I have kept it in the box since I don't intend to use it.

    The lume is neither better nor much worse than my old Rolex 14060M. Tolerable.



    All in all, with the feature set, price point, and Squale's more than credible history in the dive watch industry, these are the best Sub homages in existence for under $800. In my opinion the Squale 20 Atmos line beats both Steinhart and Christopher Ward.

    Thanks a lot Fullers, was that really necessary! =P

    Now I have been bitten by the DLC bug!
    I was supposed to lay low for a while... I am leaning towards Steinhart though, not only because I have two other oceans already, but because their ocean DLC has a domed crystal. Really like that feature!

    Great piece you have here.
