The story of Drass runs parallel with mankind’s passion for exploration of our oceans. Established in 1927 in Livorno, Italy, and headquartered in what has become one of the largest seaports in both the Mediterranean and the world, Drass’s unique history and extensive achievements have kept them at the forefront of manufacturing subaqueous technology.
Synonymous with some of the most influential maritime inventions of the twentieth century—they produced some of the earliest submarines, atmospheric diving suits which would revolutionize deep-sea exploration in the 1920s and 1930s, and the legendary human “maiali” torpedoes of World War II.
Today, Drass, in addition to offering a range of totally revamped traditional vehicles, continues to produce the most advanced vehicles for elite navies around the world.
Wanting to rely exclusively on high-grade professionals for the creation of every element of supply to their crews, Drass decided to entrust Squale with the task of creating a timepiece suitable for submarine operators.
Hence, from Drass's requests came the Drass Periscope model, made as a watch in supply to its employees, and not distributed commercially.
The Drass company also asked Squale to make an additional device to accompany the watch. It is in fact a rubber cap, to be specially applied to the bezel of the watch. An apparently innocuous device, but one that conceals a great purpose. An accidental collision of the watch with another metal part in the narrow spaces of the submarine would risk creating an interference. The rubber cap, made in Italy from highly resistant material, can be easily attached to or removed from the watch depending on the submariner operator's needs.
To celebrate this supply, Squale, in agreement with Drass, has decided to market a model called Squale Periscope. The model in question has one difference from the one supplied to Drass, namely the dial: to underline the synergy between the two companies, it was decided to offer both the Squale logo and the Drass logo.
All the features of the watch are the same as those of the Drass Periscope in supply to Drass, making this watch available not only to professionals, but to all undersea and military enthusiasts.
