By TLex This little beauty is the Squale Tiger Final Edition, limited to just 200 pieces it is the final and last variant of the Squale Tiger family that started life in 1987. For obvious reason, it was affectionately known by its nickname, Baby PLOPROF!
The Tiger Final Edition is a mix of modern and vintage style that gives what is a very recognizable and eye-catching dive watch a special character and little more attitude.
If for whatever reason, you didn’t get the Ploprof reference – look no further than the Tiger’s distinctive push–to-release button in bright red as well as the heavily texturized cashback.
The push- to-release button is a simple yet effective safety-feature that prevents the position of the bezel from being accidently knocked thus giving a false and potentially dangerous dive-time reading.
The bezel itself has been given a beautifully hand-finished brushed treatment while the position of the markers have been made for safe and easy reading of dive-time. They have been filled with a High-Luminescent Ceramic.
A scratch-resistant Sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective treatment furthers the Tiger’s excellent readability while protecting it up to 300 meters below sea-level, the equivalent of 30 atmosphere of pressure.
The Squale Tiger is powered by the tried and tested Swiss ETA 2892 automatic movement, which provides reliable and accurate timekeeping even under the toughest circumstances.
At the end of the day, the Tiger is a purpose-built diving instrument, something that Squale have been famous for, for several decades – Swiss made reliable, elegant, unique, affordable and easy to service.
The Tiger Final Edition is available in three dial colors: Black, Sunburst Blue and with a Luminova White dial that is fully luminescent in the dark.
