SQUALE 50atm Edition ANNIVERSAIRE

Squale are celebrating their 60th Anniversary with the launch of a special edition dive watch.

Known as the ‘’Anniversaire’’, this model is based on their classic 50atm case, the same one that made a name for Squale and Charles Von Büren.



Squale have only produced 60 watches, all of them with their individual serial number engraved on their case-back.
Housed inside the 500m water-resistant case is an ETA 2824-2 Élaboré automatic moment.

Special features include a black dial which has been hand-crafted with the sixtieth anniversary logo with ‘’Milano 60° ANNIVERSAIRE’’, above and 1959 Neuchâtel 2019, below.



This version is also said to have amore refined 120 click-type bezel rather than a simple 60 click version. MSRP is 860€.

Thoughts? Can’t say I’m blown away –seems a little restrained for a 60year watch. Most people won’t dig the massive dial logo either, but it's still a classic Squale.
