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.
The Corallo is their sport utility watch, with a dive bezel and screw-down crown and case back give it 200m water resistance. The dial of deep blue with gold accents gives it an elegant appearance. The chronograph Valjoux 7750 continues the quality theme, beating at 28,800 beats per hour, 25 jewels it is a true Swiss workhorse movement known around the world by watch collectors. The chronograph incorporates a 30 min sub-dial at 12 o’clock, 60 secs sub-dial at 9 o’clock and 12-hour sub-dial at 6 o’clock. A large day/date sits at 3 o’clock, making it a very versatile watch for work and play. The 40mm case is made of 316l stainless steel with yellow gold plating. The Mercedes hands with lume make timekeeping clear and precise.
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as watch only and therefore comes with no original Squale box or original Squale paperwork. The watch has had a brand new crystal fitted and a nicely matching fitted rubber strap, this compliments the watch nicely and fits with the diver theme! The watch is running well and comes with a 3 warranty. This is a used and pre-owned watch, therefore signs of wear will be seen, refer to photos.
I can already see the emails coming in of why I would sell a “Homage” of Rolex… Sit down and relax! This watch offers great (yes borrowed) design but also offers incredible Swiss quality at an incredible price, especially for an automatic Chronograph with such a well-respected movement!
