Squale have released two new versions of their SUB-39 Dive Watch Collection:
The Squale Sub-39 dive watch is inspired by the first model that Charles von Büren created in Neuchâtel, Switzerland with the Squale logo and is designed to pay homage to the first iconic models created by Squale over 60 years ago. It also symbolizes the profound bond of friendship between the two families who are behind Squale's history of success - the founding Von Büren family and the current driving force - the Maggi family. This iconic watch is a blend of tradition and innovation and once again highlights Squale's true soul - the professional dive watch.
Squale's Sub-39 Black Arabic features a black dial and Arabic indices. It's the only watch in the collection to feature Arabic numerals as indices. This choice is dictated by a desire to replicate the 60s version of an iconic Squale dive watch. The watch is identical to its predecessor except for the watchcase's diameter (previously 34 mm and now 39 mm), the sapphire glass substituting the original mineral glass and the indices made with SuperLuminova instead of Tritium as in the original version.

The Squale Sub-39 SuperBlue is inspired by a Squale model from the 70s that featured a different version of the classic Squale logo on the dial at 12 o'clock. This was due to the fact that, in 1959, Charles Von Büren trademarked both the Squale and Supersquale brands. The latter was characterized by a slightly different logo from the one we currently associate with Squale. In those years both brands produced several models. Over time the Supersquale brand was dropped, converging all production under a single Squale brand, the one we know to this day.
