  • Think the case finish is a matter of taste to be honest, whereas a shiny dial/bezel/hands present more of an issue legibility wise. I wouldn’t worry about it too much.

    Personally I’m not a big fan of the fully polished version, but it does give a bit of a 70s vibe if you like that sort of thing, especially on the Milanese bracelet they offer.

  • I’m very much into the NATO strap and never into metal strap so a matt finish work for me.

    Also later learnt that a matt finish is typical for a diver, so there’s that.

  • Ed, if you’re interested, I could do you for a 1521 way cheaper than P&C. It’s the standard black polished, and pre the « Squale » inscription on the case. I can’t load images here but could email. Boxed and with a guarantee card.

  • I have a hard on for the Lion Shark right about now.

  • Would be interested! Email is edscoble at gmail com

  • Cool, tomorrow.

  • Love the bead blasted squale. Every time you post it the watch goes back on my list. The only thing that stops me is that I really want a watch that looks like the squale but has an eco drive movt. Or similar. A grab and go tough diver.

  • Love the bead blasted squale.

    Apparently it’s a different finish;

    “ So popular was our original Super Matt bead blasted limited edition watch, we have created a new limited edition version of the famous 1521 with a new non-polished finish.

    To create something different and contrasting to the Super Matt, we have again worked closely with the case makers at Squale to create a new finish which we call Satinato.”

  • Wife’s OP pink indices
    I love this watch

  • Following all the earlier chat regarding Squale 1521's, I have a black one with polished case in very good condition. Bought it on here a while ago, but not really worn it.

    £450.00 (excluding Paypal Fees and Postage), should anyone want one.

  • ^Photo is shit, watch in real life is much nicer.

  • That OP is awesome.

    Have we done the new Top Time reissue yet? Was watching a bit of Thunderball yesterday and made me think that it was surprising Breitling hadn't tried to bring back this range. Well, turns out they're on the case: https://shop.hodinkee.com/blogs/journal/­breitling-top-time-limited-edition
