    Since as early as the 1950s and 1960s, SQUALE has been producing its own range of professional dive watches, trusted with one of the most vital tasks when under water: keeping time accurately and reliably. The SQUALE 1521 50 ATM Professional watch is the classic SQUALE dive watch in its most elegant form. The design is by Charles von Büren, SQUALE’s founder, whose priority was to create a great-looking, yet robust timepiece. A real diving watch that offers 500 meters of water resistance in a compact, 42mm-wide and 13mm-thick package for ultimate comfort in wearability. Neat details include how the shape of the case protects the recessed crown at the 4:30 position, or how the orange minute hand makes reading the minutes super intuitive. The SQUALE 1521 50 ATM Professional will be available with three different finishes of the case: high-gloss polished steel, sandblasted steel, or matte PVD. There is also a wide range of lacquered dial colours available.

    Looks nice, but ... did it really need to have "SQUALE" printed twice on the dial? Redundant text is redundant. Would've been cleaner with just one, imo.

    Squale started it’s life as a case maker that co-branded dials on watches using their cases. When they moved to making their own watches they kept their co-branding and added their logo to their in-house watches as well. It seems counter intuitive, but the history explains it. Personally, I find it interesting given the reason.

    So are they co-branding their own watches now? Also, who makes this watch? -- I can't tell from the picture

    They do it on purpose. It’s part of their heritage.

    That would be cool to see something new. Maybe they'll do a chocolate like the 60 Atmos?? or something along those lines. I did see listed a "vintage" reissue for Europe that didn't have the orange second hand and a off white dial that was quite cool.
