[WTS] Squale 20 Atmos Militaire
ETA 2824, 20 atm WR
Dimensions: 40/48/20/13.5mm
I bought this in new condition from the original purchaser, who kept it in wraps since December 2016. Since the Gnomon warranty was near its end, I sent it in for a general service in December, and just received it back (Feb 2019). I’m fond of the watch, but making room and freeing funds for the collection - so testing the waters.
This is the maxi dial version (large lume plots) of the 20 Atmos. It’s a straight-up milsub homage, particularly enjoyable for its sword hands. The yellowish lume works well with the deep, matte charcoal dial. Although it’s a sober design, the big lume plots are a joy to see on the wrist. At 48mm lug-to-lug, it wears well on my 6-1/4” wrist. The case and bracelet are chunky (which you might enjoy more than me). It has reassuring heft.
Worn about every other day for 6-7 months. I’d rate it a TF 83% cosmetic, based upon the general signs of use on the case and bracelet. Since it runs fine and was just warranty serviced, I’d rate it a TF 92% mechanically.
There are small scratches under the lugs from strap changes, and one embarrassing scratch on the underside of the solid end link (see photo) from fumbling the spring bar tool. If you’re looking for a classy, well built, solid feeling diver that looks great - but that you’re not afraid to use as a daily beater, this could be for you. Perhaps somewhat common at this price point, the crown takes some care to engage.
I’m also including a new, fun, grey perforated rubber’ish strap. Watch comes in the original Squale box with Squale watch roll, original warranty card (fading but stamped with Dec 2018 expiry) and original Squale tie-tag (see image link). Does *not* include the sand colored Barton canvas strap, but we could negotiate.
Asking $470, which includes USPS Priority Mail. No trades. PayPal only. Lower 48 US States only.

Who am I: In the last year or so, I’ve bought a number of watches to try - now I’m thinning the herd. I’m mainly active as @well.spokin in the #milehighwatches IG group here in Denver.
