The New Squale SUB-39s
#Squale Sub 39 #New Squale 2020
Squale is proud to introduce the latest model from the SUB-39 Series: the new Squale SUB-39 Black Arabic and the new Squale SUB-39 SuperBlue.
Squale's Sub-39 Black Arabic is available with a black dial and Arabic indices. It's the only watch in the collection to feature Arabic numerals as indices. This choice is dictated by a desire to replicate the 60s version. The watch is identical to its predecessor except for the watchcase's diameter (previously 34 mm and now 39 mm), the sapphire glass substituting the original mineral glass and the indices made with SuperLuminova instead of tritium as in the original version.
Squale's Sub-39 SuperBlue features a blue dial with indices and hands in SuperLuminova for high legibility even under low-light conditions. This version is inspired by a model from the 70s that featured a different version of the classic logo at 12 o'clock. This was due to the fact that, in 1959, Charles Von Büren trademarked both the Squale and Supersquale brands. The latter was characterized by a slightly different logo from the one we currently associate with Squale. In those years both brands produced several models. Over time the Supersquale brand was dropped, converging all production under a single Squale brand, the one we know to this day. The Squale Sub-39 SuperBlue takes everything, even the name, from this historic edition, once again celebrating its own glorious past. Another key feature of this watch is the hands. This type, not found on any other Squale watch in the collection, was widely utilized in the 70s by several brands and it was intentionally left unchanged on this timeless model.
This new version, inspired by the old Supersquale model opens the door to new models inspired by the past.
