Squale Professional Dive Watches
Since 2015, Island Watch has operated the SqualeWatches.com website. Now we are happy to be able to offer them to you directly for purchase. Founded in 1946, the Squale brand name is a synonym for Swiss Made professional diving watches. In the beginning, Squale produced watches and watch cases for various Swiss brands who didn't have the knowledge to build professional dive timepieces. The smaller brands used the Squale logo on their dial as a sign of quality. In 1950, Squale began to produce their own range of professional diving watches under the Squale name marking the beginning of the brands institutional history. At the end of End 1960`s, Squale introduced their first 1000 meter divers watch with a unique glass on flexible mountings that didn't use or need a Helium release valve. Squale started to supply the elite corps of a large number of armed forces, including the parachutists corps "Folgore Brigade" part of the Italian Airforces ( "Aeronautica Militare Italiana") and the Italian Navy’s Diving Corps, the "Marina Militare Italiana". This made Squale legendary for quality and they became the benchmark brand for dive watches internationally, a status it has enjoyed for several decades. Handcrafted in Switzerland with the same quality of the vintage models, Squale is back with a great line of watches that does the Squale name and reputation justice.
