Regular price $899.99 Sale

UP FOR SALE IS THIS MEGA COOL 1980s SQUALE CORALLO AUTOMATIC DIVE CHRONOGRAPH WITH GILTED WHITE DIAL IN EXCELLENT CONDITION .  

 

  • CASE: CHUNKY SOLID STEEL CASE IN SHARP NEAR MINT CONDITION.  THIS GUY MEASURES A NICE 38mm ACROSS NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL SIGNED SCREW-DOWN CROWN AND CROWN GUARDS. THIS THING IS BUILT LIKE A SUBMARINE. WITH ITS BULBOUS 60 CLICK DOMED BEZEL WHICH FLOWS INTO THE CASE, THIS THING FEEL LIKE A SERIOUS PIECE OF SUBMERSIBLE DIVE EQUIPMENT. LIKE ALL SQUALE CASES, SOME REALLY NICE FINISHING. I LOVE THAT MASSIVE LUMED TRIANGULAR PIP AT 12. 

 

  • DIAL: I JUST GET A KICK LOOKING AT THIS DIAL. GORGEOUS SEMI MATTE WHITE FINISH WITH THOSE TOWERING BRICK GOLD MARKERS IS A SLICK LOOK. THE GILTED MERCEDES HANDSET IS REALLY FUN. NICE EVEN PATINA ON THE TRITIUM WHICH GIVES A WARM VINTAGE VIBE TO THIS 80s BABE. THE DAY WHEEL IN ITALIAN GIVES THIS A JET-SETTING MEDITERRANEAN TRAVELER VIBE. 

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS MACHO DIVE CHRONO IS POWERED BY A SWISS VALJOUX 7750.  ALL FUNCTIONS WORK PERFECTLY AND WATCH HAS BEEN KEEPING EXCELLENT TIME. SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN BUT THIS IS A STRONG RUNNER. 

 

  • I'VE GOT THIS STUD MOUNTED ON AN AFTERMARKET SPEIDEL JUBILEE BRACELET WHICH FITS SEAMLESSLY WITH THE CASE AS IF IT WAS DESIGNED FOR THIS PIECE. BRACELET CAN ACCOMODATE UP TO A 7 3/4" WRIST. MOST DIVE WATCH ENTHUSIASTS ARE FAMILIAR WITH SQUALE FOR THEIR FAMOUS VINTAGE SPORTS WATCHES. THE BRAND IS STILL KICKIN' TODAY PUTTING IT FABULOUS SWISS MADE PIECES. THIS WATCH DATES FROM A TIME WHEN THE QUARTZ BOOM HAD ERADICATED THE MECHANICAL WATCH MARKET, AND AUTOMATIC SPORTS WATCHES WERE MADE FOR THE TRUE DIE-HARD HOROLOGISTS. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE RETRO MIAMI VICE MEETS AMALFI COAST DESIGN OF THIS PIECE. THIS ONE IS AN ABSOLUTE SUMMER BANGER OF A DIVE CHRONO.
