To celebrate 65 years in business, Squale has partnered again with the Italian Navy (Marina Militare) to commemorate a long and fruitful relationship that began 40 years ago when Squale supplied watches to the Navy for the first time.

The dominant element is the color orange, an important symbol for both the Navy and Squale. The official Navy logo is orange, as are the iconic minute hands of Squale diving watches, including the 1521 models. This remarkable timepiece features the Navy logo in orange at 6 o’clock, along with the minute track on the dial around the flange.

For this limited edition, the iconic minute hand comes in orange SuperLuminova with a white edge to perfectly match the shade of SuperLuminova features on the first quarter of the bezel.This is a sporty and classic diving watch from Squale with the famous and characteristic “von BĂĽren” case. An absolute classic from the 70s with beautiful details. Equipped with double-sided anti-reflective sapphire crystal for optimal readability under all circumstances and a strong and reliable Swiss automatic movement.

BRAND PHILOSOPHY

Integrity, professionalism, experience, and passion. To make unique, inimitable watches, elegant, minimalist design and high-tech materials are not enough… the secret of Squale watches lies within, in the way they are designed and constructed: friends of the sea, because they are immune to brine, and faithful companions of the most demanding divers, because they are reliable, always.

HISTORY

The great Swiss tradition of precision watchmaking, combined with a love of the sea and diving, were the two factors that led C. Von BĂĽren to work exclusively on the construction of professional divers watches from the early ’50s. Initially, the “Squale” mark appeared on the cases of Swiss watches of various makes, as a sign of fine production and a quality symbol. Then, in the ’60s, Von BĂĽren started to produce watches that also had the Squale mark on their dials, starting the brand?s institutional and commercial history. The first sporting successes, such as the world diving title won in Cuba in ’68, were linked to the names of products that had become as legendary as the medium, Master 50 atm. The ’70s saw the birth of the first “1000 meter” watch with glass on flexible mounting and snap-on lunette which could be turned in both directions. Squale continued to produce for other brands and started to supply the elite corps of a large number of armed forces, including the parachutists of Italy’s Folgore Brigade and the Italian Navy’s Diving Corps. All this has made Squale synonymous with quality and the benchmark brand for divers’ watches internationally, a status it has enjoyed for several decades.

HOW THE PRODUCT IS BUILT

The great Swiss tradition of precision watchmaking, combined with solidity and durability: as tradition demands, the case is made throughout from Swiss 316L steel. The components are all Swiss, too: winders, winder sleeves, and gaskets. These are essential parts of a watch that has to withstand high pressures and salt water. Watches are painstakingly assembled by master watchmakers, taking the greatest care over the fitting of the gaskets and ensuring that the case is airtight; this then undergoes strict checks, with regard to both resistance to water and timekeeping accuracy. Quality tests are performed on every single watch and not on a sampling basis.
