Super Cool Vintage Squale Medium Divers Watch.
Very interesting piece from a great factory.
Squale has really increased in popularity over the past few years, not surprisingly, as they are great quality Dive watches.
Perfect for the individual that doesn't want the typical Diving brick on the Wrist. I know your modern mind is saying "whoa a medium?" but trust me this wears beautifully, the case is not small by any means, coming in at approx 35mm, 36mm with bezel and almost 38mm with the Crown. I have attached a photo so you can see how this wears on my approx. 7 inch wrist.
Its sporty, classy, colourful and a bit different.

This movement features a semi-quickset date feature, more advanced from all other members of the ETA 2400 family apart from the similar hand-wound 2408. The date changes instantly at midnight. To set the date, the time is moved forward from 20:30 to 24:00, then back to 20:30 and forward again.
Please ensure you push the crown back in and gently screw it back to the case when finished.

Hands, Crystal and Crown
Original Hands are in very good order. Beautiful lollipop centre seconds hand.
Original Cyclops crystal has been Polished as part of the Service.
When the Watch came to us, the Crown would not screw tightly to the case nor would it wind the Watch, so a new Screw Down crown and pendant tube has been fitted, which looks fantastic.
On a new 18mm Grey Suede Leather Strap, with stitching and Steel buckle that compliments the Watch very well indeed.
Comes with a free GungaDin Watch Box as pictured.
