The unidirectional bezel is tight and clicks positively. The highlight of the bezel is the beautiful bakelite inlay with multifaceted steel markers hand set into the bakelite. This look dates back to the diver watches Squale made int he 1970s.
Made in the same exact method Squale used in the past the bezel inlay adds a hint of nostalgia to the Squalematic. The bakelite bezel inlay is coloured in a multi-stage process. First the multifaceted metal applique pis applied by hand, followed by colouring with varnishes immune to seawater corrosion, and then application to the supporting steel substrate. This guarantees that the component is warm to the touch while guaranteeing excellent bevel legibility thanks to the transparency.
