Okay, we all know the obvious, but I took some time to take a deep dive into Squales rich history.
This sounds like pure BS, so we're off to a good start.
First off all, even if he was a doped up surfer dude, that must have hurt. Second off all, apparently our mate Charles suffered from some mid-term memory loss (exessive oxygen deprivation?) because Zodiac, BP and Rolex "gave way" 6 years earlier.
Hang loose, dude.
Let's see... no diving watches in the 1960s.... okay, even if we ignore the fact that every brand under the sun released dive watches in the 60s good old Charles apparently forgot his own groundbreaking 1959 invention of automatic sub-timers. Whatever those may be.
True that. Not a single Squale tho. But let's move on.
You know who we're talking about right? ... you don't?
Super Resistance? The only one I'm painfully aware of is the Super Resistance against buying a Skwalee.
76m dive in 1970? And the watch survived? Impressive af. Jacques Mayol was actually an apnoe diver and his most famous moment was diving to a depth of 100m in 1976. I guess Squale wasn't up for that task.
Um.... okay. It's 7,600km. Welcome to the age of Google Squale-People.
So what they mean is the guy found people dumb enough to buy him out before the company went bust a couple years later. Salute!
Cool, very professional.
Either that or they paid a not-so-healthy-looking-shill-from-Queens-to-promote-their-shit-to-gullible-idiots.
Thermal shocks? So what was that watch really designed from, diving dick first into active vulcanos??
Right on, let's talk some tech baby!
The what? Oohhh stems and stem tubes. Yeah awesome. Forgot some unessential parts like case, dial, hands and crystal but there you go.
The pain is real.
That certification process sure is ensuring....
And this concludes this impressive history lesson of one of the most unimportant companies in watchmaking.
