By TLex SQUALE have released their own version of the vintage Submariner. The new Squale 20 ATMOS Vintage Ref. 1545 watch is made in Switzerland and powered by a Swiss made ETA 2824-2 automatic movement. Features include: a uni-directional 60 click rotational divers bezel, a screwdown crown (3 o'clock) and caseback and a flat Sapphire crystal with date magnifier.

The 316L Stainless steel case has been polished It measures 40mm in diameter, 44.5mm including crown, with a thickness of 12.1mm. Its NOS black dial is with gold index applied with off-white SuperLuminova for that desirable vintage look. It comes on a metal bracelet with push pins along with an additional G10 NATO Military Strap.

I love the these vintage Submariner interpretations. At 400USD this one's a good deal. But I feel that in order too have achieved a more authentic look the crown guards should have been removed. I wouldn't miss the cyclops or white date wheel either! The watch is available HERE from Gnomon Watches, who are an official Squale AD . . .
