Squale chose to keep the case silhouette the same to stay true to the original. The stay "true-to-original" philosophy gives watch enthusiasts much enjoyment of the retro-ness. However, much improvement has been made to the construction and finishing using modern-day machinery and technology. The COSC Certified 50 Atmos is now part of the cornerstone of the 1521 Collection.
The 50 ATMOS case dimension stays true at 42mm wide and 48mm lugs to lugs, and 12.5mm slim. The unique case construction also meant the 500m watch could be kept at 12.5mm. The contemporary footprint means the 50 ATMOS is exceptionally comfortable on the wrist. The Squale 50 ATMOS has a uni-directional 120-click bezel. The screw-down crown is located at 4 O'clock. Topping it off, sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating for added toughness and clarity. True to its predecessors, this steel model features a case with a bi-lux finish which incorporates satin finishing with polished bevels for maximum elegance.

The bezel is equipped with indicators made in SuperLuminova. For the first time on the classics, the dial now comes with applied indexes, guaranteeing high legibility even in the most extreme diving conditions where it becomes essential to keep track of every minute. The matte black dial made by Squale is different from those you will see regularly. It is designed with easy-time reading in mind. The white and orange hour and minute hands make time reading underwater easy.
While diving, precision is essential. Introducing two versions with a COSC-certified calibre is a further step towards perfection.
