Squale has further enriched our Sub-39 collection with the introduction of a new GMT model offering all the essential functions of the evermore universal diver. The “Sub-39 GMT Vintage” is the ideal travel companion for divers who want to explore their passion for diving all over the planet. A practical tool watch at its core, it allows the wearer to enjoy two distinct functions—viewing multiple time zones and calculating immersion times on a dive—without ever having to switch watches. The “Sub-39 GMT Vintage” was born from a desire to expand a collection that boasts a strong connection with the brand’s history. Its case design is inspired by models produced by Squale in the 60s during the golden era of dive watches, and it has been updated with an impressive water resistance of up to 300 meters.

The “Vintage” is the first GMT in the Sub-39 series and it is a combination of past and present. All the essential elements of a diver watch are found in the details, from the simplicity of the dial that guarantees perfect readability even at depth, to the presence of SuperLuminova—vital features for diving, when visibility is reduced and it is crucial to keep track of immersion and decompression times. The red hand of the GMT was designed to allow the second time zone to be read easily in conjunction with the bi-directional rotating 24-hour bezel when not underwater. The box-shaped, scratch-
resistant sapphire crystal captures the charm typical of many Squale models from the 60s, while the conical crown has roots in the world of pilot watches and aviation instruments.

The “Sub-39 GMT Vintage” is powered by the Swiss made ETA 2893-2, an automatic movement renowned for its robustness and reliability. Regulated and tested by our expert watchmakers, it operates at
28,800 vibrations per hour and delivers a power reserve of approximately 50 hours. The retro aesthetic of the Vintage is a tribute to Squale’s rich and illustrious heritage, combined with its commitment to continuous innovation and dedication to serving emerging needs. A truly do-it-all tool watch, the Sub-39 GMT Vintage is both practical and stylish, and the ideal choice for any diver or world traveler embarking on their next adventure.

Description

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 Büren 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 Büren 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. Last but not least, the movement’s reliability is certified by the fact that Squale has always been a direct customer of the ETA Factory at Grenchen, guaranteeing that all movements are of prime quality.
