WATCHH is excited to announce they are now the official dealer of SQUALE watches in the UAE! This marks a significant milestone for WATCHH as they bring one of the most revered names in the dive watch industry to their customers.
The Legacy of SQUALE
SQUALE, meaning ‘shark’ in both French and Italian, is a name synonymous with excellence in the world of professional diving watches. Founded by the visionary Charles von Buren, SQUALE has been at the forefront of innovation in underwater timepieces. Their rich heritage dates back to the 1950s when they initially started by crafting cases for other watch brands. This humble beginning laid the foundation for what would become a legacy of unparalleled craftsmanship and innovation
Pioneers of Dive Watches
In the 1960s, SQUALE began producing their own watches, quickly establishing themselves as pioneers with the creation of a 500m water-resistant dive watch. Their expertise didn't go unnoticed; prestigious brands like Doxa, Heuer, and Blancpain used SQUALE cases for their own dive watches, with Blancpain notably using them for the iconic 50 Fathoms.
A Strong Connection with the Italian Military
SQUALE's excellence extends beyond commercial success. They have a storied history of making watches for the Italian Navy, Air Force, and Special Forces. Their close collaboration with military diving departments and the fact they are the official supplier to the Italian Police Dive Unit underscores the trust and reliability their watches command in the most demanding environments.
Supporting World Records
SQUALE's commitment to the diving community is evident in their sponsorship of Vincenzo Ferri, an Italian freediver who holds several world records. Divers around the world have set records while wearing SQUALE watches, a testament to the brand's reliability and precision.
A Commitment to Quality
Every SQUALE watch is a masterpiece of Swiss watchmaking tradition, assembled by hand by expert watchmakers in Ticino.
