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 as an open edition.
SwissWatchPassion is proud to celebrate the brand’s 60th anniversary with Squale, releasing not only the Sub-39 Sixty Years Special Edition, but also the new Sub-39 Intenso Blu.
The most striking feature of this watch is its unique case. As many aficionados of this brand from Neuchatel might know, Squale produced this case 60 years ago for some of the most famous brands in the watchmaking industry. The Sub-39 series pays homage to the brand’s glorious past by introducing the same polished case with only a variation in size; instead of the original 34 mm case, the Sub-39 features a 39 mm case with a thickness of about 12 mm including the sapphire crystal.
Boasting the same distinctive qualities of the brand that bills itself as the Professional Dive Watch maker, water resistance is guaranteed up to 30 atm (300 meters).
The 120-click uni-directional bezel, like the case, is produced in polished 316L stainless steel. The crystal glass insert was designed to evoke Bakelite, a less resistant material used in the ‘60s. Another particular feature from that time are the indexes, which are marked in fifteenths. The lug to lug measurement is 48.5 mm, a length that ensures a comfortable fit on every wrist.
br>Another remarkable characteristic 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 being produced by Squale, like the iconic 1521 series, which have the crown at 4 o’clock.
The Sub-39 Intenso Blu dial features old radium index markers that glow green in the dark. The indexes are marked alternately with Arabic numerals.
The outstanding design element of the new Sub-39 is the “blue sunrise” color of its dial, which reflects different shades of blue depending on the angle of the light.
The Sub-39 open edition boasts the unmistakable Squale logo, along with the text 30 ATMOS, at 6 o’clock, while the limited edition also includes the date the brand was registered. The Sub-39 Intenso Blu displays the calendar at 3 o’clock making it easily legible through the sapphire crystal.
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).
