Back in those days where dive watches were the craze for the Swiss Industry, there were mainly three dive watch case makers that are able to supply reliable cases for the swiss companies. There was Erwin Piquerez SA (Famous for their compressor case), France's Monnin for their diver case that were for the well known Heuer company. The third one from the trinity was Squale, who dates back to 1948 founded by Charles Von Buren (The Von Buren emblem can still be found on their watches). Their most iconic diver was the skin-diver case, the 50 Atmos Divers. It has the downward lugs that helps with comfortability on the wrist with a slight protruded bezel for better grip, and a flushed crown placement at 4 o' clock position.

In 2017, the Italian dive watch maestro took their most classic skin diver from the 60s, the quintessential 50 Atmos and sized it up to fit today demand for a bigger watch.
Based on the 2017's 60 Atmos Squalematic, we will like to introduce you our exclusive model, the 60 Atmos Squalematic Blu Puro Limited Edition.
The latest release from BaselWorld 2018. The 60 Atmos Blu Puro is based on their retro 50 Atmos DNA, and upsized with certain tweaks to it.
The case diameter is 42.7mm in diameter (44mm if we measure the bezel), 51mm lug to lug with a thickness of only 13.5mm, and a lug size of 22mm.
The Squalematic 60 Atmos is fully polished, and uses a flat sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment, fitting the neo-vintage theme.

BUND STYLE BEZEL
The unique feature of the Blu Puro limited edition being the full blue Bund style (sterile bezel) bakelite bezel with 4 screws on the sides. The use of the bakelite material for the bezel insert gives the watch a certain warmth that cannot be created with modern material. This design cue is based on the mid-1970s Bund style Blancpain Fifty Fathoms, which was made by Squale too back then. There are no minute markers on it other than the luminous triangle at 12 o' clock that glows in green matching those on the dial and hands. It continues he tradition with a 60 click bezel that ratchet positively into place with little to no play.

DIAL AND CASEBACK
The sunburst blue dial is probably the highlight of the 60 Atmos Blu Puro. The dial design stays true to the Bundeswehr it pays homage to with many of the classic cues but with a modern twist to it in terms of the color. The refreshing sunburst blue dial, depending on the lightings, goes from a deep blue to a mid blue. Furthermore, keeping to the Squale DNA, the minute hand is orange in color for easy visibility.
As this is only a limited edition of 160 pieces made, the serial number is also engraved onto the caseback.
The 60 Atmos Blu Puro limited edition is definitely a classic dive watch, and is for watch enthusiasts who are looking for a true heritage design in what we think is a truly unique color.
