2019 is an important year for Squale as the brand celebrates its 60th anniversary. To commemorate this special occasion, the Swiss horology Maison established by Charles Von Buren in Neuchatel (Switzerland), has unveiled a new series called Sub-39.
Receivable in 5/10 working days.
The Sub-39 Sixty Years Special Edition, a limited edition of only 150 watches, marks this important anniversary and launches a collection designed to pay homage to the first iconic models created by Squale.
For fans of the brand that created the "Dive Watch", the Sub-39, inspired by the original case of a 1960s model, is now available in the catalog but in blue color. The most striking feature of this watch is its unique case. As many aficionados of this Neuchatel brand may know, Squale produced this case 60 years ago for some of the most famous brands in the watch industry.
The Sub-39 series pays homage to the brand's glorious past by introducing the same polished case with just a variation in size; instead of the original 34mm case, the Sub-39 features a 39mm case with a thickness of approximately 12mm including sapphire crystal. It boasts the same distinctive qualities of the brand that calls itself a manufacturer of professional diving watches, water resistance is guaranteed up to 30 atm (300 meters).
Polished 316L stainless steel case, 120 click unidirectional bezel with crystal insert designed to evoke Bakelite, a less resistant material used in the 1960s.
Another particular feature of that period are the indices which are marked in fifteenths. The lug to lug size is 48.5mm, a length that ensures a comfortable fit on any wrist. Another notable feature of the Sub-39 Intenso Blu, also inspired by the original case, is the crown at 3 o'clock. This is a departure from the watches currently produced by Squale, such as the iconic 1521 series, which have the crown at 4 o'clock.
The Sub-39 Intenso Blue dial features luminescent paste-coated indexes with a coloring inspired by aged radium and that glow green in the dark. The indices are alternately marked with Arabic numerals. The outstanding design element of the new Sub-39 is the "blue sunrise" color of the dial, which reflects different shades of blue depending on the angle of the light. The Sub-39 edition boasts the unmistakable Squale logo, along with the 30 ATMOS lettering at 6 o'clock, while the limited edition also includes the trademark registration date and a black dial. The Sub-39 Intenso Blu displays a date window at 3 o'clock.
The unique box-shaped sapphire crystal is one of the main characteristics of the Sub-39 Intenso Blu. Inspired by the plexiglass crystal mounted on the watches from the 60s, its shape is a departure from the rounded glass more commonly used nowadays. During that time plexiglass was set by pushing it against the case until it became fully water resistant. In order to accomplish that the glass needed to have a different shape from the ones utilized today. The current design remains true to the original characteristics, but the Swiss brand has decided to improve its construction by substituting plexiglass with sapphire crystal, a highly resistant material.
The caseback, another departure from the current designs, has been designed to give a more vintage look to this timepiece. The central logo is surrounded by engravings recalling the design of its predecessor.
The Sub-39 Intenso Blu is powered by the Swiss-made Sellita SW 200 “REGLAGE ELABORÉ" automatic movement, a high-precision Swiss movement that guarantees accuracy of +/-5 seconds per day.
The distinctive strap is another key element of the Sub-39 Intenso Blu. It is made in Italy with two tones of smokey blue leather to match the dial, producing a perfect harmony between these two essential components. This extraordinary design blends the past with the present: an iconic design has been reenvisioned to meet the most demanding quality and reliability standards of our time.
The watch comes with a calfskin leather travel case (Made in Italy).
