SQUALE 20 Atmos VINTAGE

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 . . .
