This year at Baselworld 2016, Squale is introducing a pair of updated classic divers. Squale has a rich history of dive watches, and their vintage divers have become legendary amongst collectors. They are one of many brands who have capitalized on the popularity of their past by creating modern watches that borrow from their vintage classics.
The first new watch for them this year is the Squalematic 60 ATM. This is a brand new model for them, but it is inspired by the glorious vintage Squale Masters of the past. The Squalematic will have the same familiar “von Buren” case style that they also used on their very popular 1521 models, but now in an updated 44mm diameter. Big watches are still in, and the new Squale is a nice addition to that market, without being gigantic. The recessed screw down crown is still at 4 o’clock for comfort and protection.
