I took a break from WUS for the last 6 months because I wanted to avoid the temptation of getting shiny new timepieces, and so far, it had worked, as I didn't pick up anything new. So last week, I thought, hmm, maybe I should just check in for a little bit and see what's going on in the world of horology.
Boy was that a big mistake, because I stumbled onto this new sub homage from Squale, and next thing I know, I've ordered one.
Wrist shot - I think the 40mm size is a better fit for my small wrists.
I must say that I am very pleased with the Squale. The build quality is excellent and feels very comfortable on my wrist. I dare say that I like it better than my Steinhart OVM. Although the OVM has a better clasp on the bracelet, I think the overall size, build, look and feel, etc. of the Squale puts it over the top for me.
Don't get me wrong, I still love the OVM, but the Squale edges it just slightly.
Side by side, Steinhart OVM and Squale Y1545

I like the "military sub" posted, however the 3, 6, and 9 hour markers are so chunky they throw everything off for me.
Thank you for the suggestions though! If only there were a cheaper alternative to the Helenarou...
Yes he is, and it's a really nice watch, but if you want that watch lot cheaper check uit my post at the sales forum FS: Military Submariner No Date MilSub
