Squale Owners Club


Recommended Posts

Squale deserve their own thread.

Great heritage, but very much under the radar. Now owned by the Maggi family who used to be their original distributor when they were a case manufacturer for the likes of Blancpain. 

Hodinkee give a great potted history of the brand in this link...

I have owned a few but currently only have one. This one's case was made to the exact spec of the issued Bund case that they made/supplied to Blancpain.

It was made exclusively for Gnomon Watches as one of several different designs offered to them for their Limited Edition (of 10) Opaco. This particular configuration, with the polished case and standard dial, never actually made it into production, as Gnomon picked a different dial for the polished case, and did another Opaco limited edition with blasted case finish and orange accented dial. 

But this is a superbly made and, I think, stunning looking Dive watch in its own right.

Having said that, a blue 1521 wouldn't be a bad addition.... 

And as if by magic - that is to say the magic of a standard watch guy's lack of restraint, a mere 15 days after remarking the above, a blue 1521 arrived for me today...

What a looker...
