Squale was founded by Charles von Büren in Neuchâtel, Switzerland, in 1946 as a manufacturer of watch cases and other components for other watch brands.
This Limited Edition pays tribute to their dive heritage and specifically to their classic Charles von Büren designed Squale 1521. The watch is a collaboration with “Page & Cooper” of London created with their own specification and has a limited run of just 20 pieces. The 41.5mm 316L bead blasted stainless steel "von Büren" case has a lug to lug length of 48mm and a thickness of 12.5mm, giving the watch an impressive wrist presence. The flowing lines of the case make it very comfortable to wear. At 4 o’clock a screw-down crown recessed into the case to protect it against knocks. A 120 clicks uni-directional bead blasted stainless steel bezel has a matte black DLC coated dive insert with white numerals. The flat sapphire crystal has an AR coating on both sides for added visibility. A matte black dial with disc and baton indexes coated in SuperLuminova marking the hours. At 3 o’clock a date window. Broad sword hands are coated in SuperLuminova. An orange minute hand adds a splash of colour, complemented by a centre second hand with a lumed counterweight. Text on the dial is in their traditional font. The polished screw-down case back has Squale “Professional” acid-etched in the centre.
