The Watch

Here we have a Squale SUB-39 BLACK ARABIC BRACELET with a 40.5mm polished stainless steel case, the case shape is inspired by the watch designs by Charles von Büren in the 1950s which were also made for Doxa, Heuer, and Blancpain. The curve of the case leads to a lug-to-lug length of 48.5mm and a case thickness of 12mm ensuring a comfortable fit on your wrist. On the right side, we have a vintage-style signed screw-down crown. A unidirectional bezel has a black 60-minute insert made of K1 mineral crystal, resembling the bakelite inserts of the past, with large numerals and stick markers and the characteristic inverted triangle at 12 o’clock. The box-shaped sapphire crystal AR coated sits above a matt black dial, resembling the plexiglass crystals used in the past. An outer minute track is precisely executed with printed large Arabic numerals coated in Super-LumiNova C3 to mark the hours and at 3 o’clock a framed date window. A red Sword minute hand and white hour hand infilled with Super-LumiNova C3 are complemented with a square counterweighted second hand. At 12 o’clock we have the Squale motif and at 6 o’clock the smiley “Squale” completes this vintage-inspired divers timepiece. On the reverse, a screw-down case back with the Squale logo, inside an Automatic Sellita SW200–1 Elaborè movement, 26 jewels, 28,800 beats per hour, this Sellita Elaborè movement has hand winding and hacking for your convenience.  The watch comes fitted on a 22mm polished and brushed stainless steel bracelet with a signed folding clasp and comes with its Squale presentation box and paperwork. The watch comes with a 2-Year Manufacturer's Warranty.

The Brand

Squale was founded by Charles von Büren in Neuchâtel, Switzerland, in 1946 as a manufacturer of watchcases and other components for other watch brands. In 1950 von Buren began to produce professional dive watches under the Squale name. During the 1960s and 70s, Squale produced cases for many brands including Prima, Blandford, Deman Watch, Berio and Sinn. In 1974 Squale decided to enter the watch market in its own right. Unfortunately like many other watch brands during the “quartz crisis” they stopped production in 1989. Relaunching the brand in 2010 the Maggi family who were previously distributors of von Buren and Squale watches in Italy. Their headquarters can be found in Milan, with watch production in Grenchen in the Jura valley Switzerland.
