    Your bleeding-edge Now is always someone else’s past. Someone else’s ’70s bellbottoms. Grasp that and start to attain atemporality.

    Nice !

    You just ordered that one from Squale directly, right ?

    Can you say s.th. about the quality of the watch ? I understand they're using old cases/dials with new movements.

    How was the deal in terms of communication with the company ? Are they acting professionally ?

    Thanks for the info, cool watch - I might be tempted as well

    Just order. Payment is by bank transfer - so I had some additional charges - but even with the EUR / GBP FX rates, it's not bad.

    Seems to be NOS dial ("T Swiss Made T"). Bezel lume pip is also aged so assume NOS.

    Not timed it yet, but seems to work well!

    Looks good M, might be tempted by one myself. A black date wheel and it would look even better imho but that's an easy fix.

    Is the case polished or brushed? It's pretty difficult to tell from their flash pics. I'd be interested to hear how you get on with this and what the time keeping's like. Keep us informed mate.

    Cheers,
    Gary

    Mine's polished. Comes on a pretty soft rubber strap with a Squale signed buckle in some kind of metal. Feels like aluminium, but could be anything. It's matte tho, so the overall effect vs the highly polished case is a little odd.

    I'll let you know re timing.

    Timing good. No noticeable difference in last 24 hours. Will do it scientifically this weekend (set it at 1100 GMT).

    Re the NOS element. Squale have confirmed that it is a tritium dial with the original Von Buren crown. I'll get some decent shots of it over the weekend, but I am really, really enjoying this watch.

    I'm assuming that they have limited stock of these now and will be producing the Vintage range to replace the NOS ones. But that's conjecture...

    Sorry Al. Not sure how I missed your Squale 30 Atmos mid-size. Lovely bezel on that one. Nice indices too. Will look out for one of those...

    The NOS squale seems to be doing okay. Three days and running about +7 seconds a day.
