The 1000 meters watch is now done in full PVD with matte finishing, resulting a more sleek tactical look that watch enthusiasts seeks nowadays. The case measures at 44mm in diameter, 49mm lugs to lugs, 16mm thick, pairing with the famous snap-on rotary bezel and 3.5mm thick sapphire crystal with double gasket to ensure outstanding resistance.
The bakelite bevel is coloured in a multi-stage process. First the phosphorescent SuperLuminova material is 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.Like the model that inspired it, the bezel can always be unscrewed from above.

The new caseback is done in PVD as well to keep the full black theme, and now fully engraved with an updates interpretation of the classic wave design and, of course, Squale's logo. For many years the Squale logo has been a mark of quality. All painstakingly designed details, crafted to make a product that keeps faith with the Squale brand philosophy. The 101ATMOS's discreet elegance is combined with reliability, provided for example by the Swedish steels used.
The Squale 101 ATMOS Blackout is also the first 101 ATMOS in Squale's history to be made in matte black through and through. Moreover, the non reflective case finishing is meant to be used in tactical situations.
