Congratulations, I would love to get the polished case version one day.

Any chance of some more photos close up please?

You know i love the watch (because i have one :laugh:)... But I must be honest though, I'm not too keen on the rubber strap. How does it wear for you?

I had a Squale 1553 and the Squale rubber strap with that was not great imo.

It only just fits,normally I can’t wear rubber or nylon straps but I quite like this one .Time will tell if it stays on the watch.

I've got a navy blue strap very similar to that one in my spares box, and I've never found a use for it.  Not sure if it's a Squale one though, as there doesn't seem to be any branding on it anywhere, and I'd assume there must be a Squale logo at least on the buckle?  Nice quality strap though, I just need to find a watch to match it up with :laughing2dw:

That's for a Squale 1553 mate. 

The exact same rubber strap I mentioned previously... Nasty bloody things!! :laugh:

The Squale leather strap which came on my 1521 is probably my favourite leather strap. And i've worn a lot of leather straps! :laugh:

Also think this model looks great on a mesh bracelet of some variety! :thumbs_up:

I’ve worn bracelets the last twenty years or so,it’s a nice change to wear a strap.

Your right,the rubber strap has to go.:bash: it’s a bit thin at the ends for my liking.
