The Squale 50 ATMOS Onda Uva Ltd Edition continues what it used to be - an iconic skin-diver watch in the 60s and 70s. Many dive watch enthusiasts acknowledged that Squale has been making this tropical dive watch cases for many brands like Aquastar, Doxa, Heuer, Blancpain, just to name a few.
Though not much has been changed, in recent years there have been a few improvement in the case construction and finishing through the use of modern day machineries and technology. However, the quintessential skin-diver look from their archives stayed the same, giving watch enthusiasts much enjoyment of a retro-vibe, sturdy and reliable dive watch. This is the same as the new 2018 Squale 50 ATMOS Onda Uva.
The Squale 50 ATMOS Onda Uva - Italian for "wave grapes", is strictly limited to 80 pieces worldwide.
The Onda Uva is where Squale took the old ingredient and made a new recipe out of it. The case dimension stays true at 41 mm wide and 48 mm lug-to-lug, similarly to the other 50 ATMOS variants. Boasting a 500 m water resistant without the use of the conventional Helium escapement valve due to its unique case design. The unique case construction also meant that the 500 m watch can be kept at a slim 12.5 mm. The contemporary footprint means that the 50 ATMOS Onda Uva is exceptionally comfortable on the wrist. Topping it off, sapphire crystal with anti reflective coating for added toughness and clarity.
