SQUALE 30 Atmos Classic GMT CERAMICA

The Squale 30 ATMOS Black GMT Ceramica Ref. 1545CG-CER is the latest model introduced by Squale. Made in Switzerland and powered by a Swiss Made ETA 2893-2 automatic movement with quick-set GMT and date function.

This is the first black dial GMT model introduced by Squale in their 50 years of watchmaking history. Based on a vintage diver model produced by Squale in the 1960s with the added feature of a GMT function. Tastefully done for that ultimate nostalgia.



With its scratch resistant black ceramic bezel with black dial providing a refined yet sporty character that can transform from diving to dining instantly with a blend of vintage thrown into the mix. Truly worthy of Squale’s watchmaking philosophy.

The ceramic bezel is first cut into shape and than the numbers are carefully engraved by machines made specially for this purpose. Next, the engraved ceramic bezel is super heated to 1500 degrees to harden and purify the ceramic. The engraved numerals on the hardened bezel is than carefully filled with white enamel paint.

The excess paint on the surface of the bezel is than polished to a high gloss leaving only the numerals filled permanently. Virtually indestructible and impervious to scratches, the ceramic bezel will last for years to come.



Continuing on the characteristics of the 1545 series, these 1545 series keep getting better and better! Measuring at 42mm and 13mm thick, the watch is the highly popular 20 ATMOS on steroids. Featuring a bigger case, bolder design and better water resistance, the 30 ATMOS has yet again set a new standard in the price segment.

The short lugs to lugs length of 49mm are curved downwards for a very comfortable and wrap around fit.



Entirely designed and hand finished in Switzerland the watch is satin brushed on the top and high polished on the sides to a very high standard, synonymous with Squale.



The GMT function is the perfect travel companion for frequent travelers using it to keep track of their home time. Coupled with the 120 clicks bezel, the 30 ATMOS has the added function of keeping track of another timezone for a total of 3 timezones.



The black dial with the latest C1 SuperLuminova luminous glows brightly in the dark. With round markers surrounded by polished surround the white uminous probably sums it up. Top it up with a flat sapphire crystal with a 2.5 times magnifier.



The Squale 30 ATMOS comes with a satin brushed metal bracelet with solid end-links and screw-in links. It even comes with a diver extension when the occasion calls for it.





The Squale 30 ATMOS comes with a Squale leather watch pouch useful for travelers as well. Squale watches come with a 2 years Squale international warranty.
