Squale 1521 Full Lumen

Recommended

The Squale 1521 series watches is the classic diving watch in its most elegant form and a model that is around for almost 40 years. Regarded as one of the most important diving-watches of the 1970`s and a template for the perfect diving watch. The design of this watch was made by Charles von Büren (founder of Squale) and main priority was to create an elegant yet robust watch that could live up to the high expectation of professional divers. No thrills and purely functional in every detail.

The Squale 1521 is a perfect example of the form follows function philosophy. Details like the case-shape that protects the recessed crown. The grippy uni-directional bezel with the minute markers for save operation and easy time measuring.

The Squale 1521 is very comfortable to wear and has a subtle presence on the wrist. Equipped with the tried and tested ETA 2824 automatic movement for accuracy and reliability in the hardest conditions. Case-diameter is a comfortable 42mm and features a uni-directional bezel. All models feature highly scratch-resistant sapphire crystals and a water-resistance of 50 Atmosphere / 500 Meters.

The Squale 1521 Full Luminous is a new edition of Serie 1521. This new version is made by a full SuperLuminova dial. The peculiarity of this watch is the possibility to see the time clearly. The hands are full black to allow the perfect contrast with the dial in night vision. The last feature of 1521 Full Lumen is the strap. This is a special version of the Tropic. It is made with rubber and it changes in design.
