Squale 500 meter Professional Swiss Automatic Dive watch with Sapphire Crystal #1521-026-TGV

NOTE: The Lion Shark is now sold out. No more are available.

The Squale 1521-026-TGV (a.k.a. TGV Lion Shark) is a 500 meter professional diving watch with the famous and characteristic "von Büren" case.
This is a real classic diver with great details like the acid etched, screw-in case back and the signed "VON" screw-down crown referring to the founder of the Squale brand "von Büren S.A. / Montres" (Neuchâtel ,Schweiz). The 316L stainless steel case has a high gloss polished finish and it is a modern 42mm x 14mm size for a nice presence on your wrist. The grey-blue sunburst-like dial features SuperLuminova treated luminescent hour markers and hands. The Lion Shark has a red 60-click uni-directional bezel with sixty minute markings and it features an anti-reflective scratch resistant sapphire crystal. The watch is made in Switzerland and it is powered by a Swiss ETA 2824-2 automatic (self-winding) movement with a 38-40 hour power reserve. Comes on a black leather strap with prong buckle. The watch also comes with TGV autographed Warranty card and commemorative pin.

Note: The actual dial color is grey with blue hues.

Squale - TGV Lionshark February 8, 2018
Reviewer: Neil Ziesing from Montclair, NJ United States  
I do not typically buy "signature edition" items associated with another person.   My only regular exception is the Arnold Palmer signature Ice tea / lemonade combo...

However, I am both a fan of the Urban Gentry channel and of the design of this watch.  I was not compelled as a fan to buy the watch, rather the design grew on me.  I always liked the Tudor Black Bay subs with the black dial and maroon bezel on a black leather strap.  Very cool look.

The combo of the blue/grey dial and the maroon bezel on the Squale 1521-026-TBG really drew me in.  That combined with the 500M water resistance and heritage of Squale in the dive world, was what sold me.

Now I hardly ever even venture into the deep end of the pool (too difficult to tread water and sip an Arnold Palmer...), let alone dive, however I will be the envy of dish washing husbands the land over.

Thanks again to Marc at Island Watch.

Beautiful Watch December 28, 2017
Reviewer: John from Tucson , AZ United States  
This time piece is awesome however it was supposed to be limited to a thousand pieces. Unfortunately it did not come numbered. Don’t know whether it’s just another of Squale’s continuous collection pieces but somewhat disappointed that it wasn’t numbered and that there will more than just the thousand that was mentioned in the video. All in all it’s a very attractive watch. I like the fact that it doesn’t have a day date on it which gives it a vintage look. Very tastefully done. You won’t be disappointed. I gave it 3 stars for not having it numbered and possibly having more that the limited number of pieces that was advertised.

Reviewer: shk from Rochester, NY United States  
Watch is great.  Squale definitely deserving of its reputation.  I know the color scheme is decisive but I like it.  Definitely will consider another squale in the future.
