The Squale T-183 it is one of these beautiful discoveries of Baselword. After being introduced there in 2019, it is finally available for sale after some changes to the model. Zoom into this original diver with an undeniably striking design.
So let’s get straight to the heart of the matter! East Squale T-183 It incorporates a 42mm case made up of several alternating layers of carbon fiber and fiberglass. A good option for the brand when the resistance and lightness of carbon are known. The dark gray of the latter makes it possible to highlight the red tint of the fiberglass. It must be said that this two-tone choice is surprising at first glance, including the stripes on the horns. We hesitate first, to finally adhere to this very assumed capricious outfit.
The bezel, screw-down crown and caseback are coated with DLC, a much stronger material than PVD. The 120-click bezel insert is made of ceramic and the 12 o’clock triangle offers a beautiful blue glow in dark conditions.
In the matte black dial, we find the red color in the applied indexes and hands that, we notice, offer a wide, almost massive silhouette. They are also covered with SuperLuminova. You will understand, this Squale T-183 takes readability very seriously and does its best to optimize time reading. There’s also a discreet black date window at 3 o’clock.
For the bracelet, the brand chose an improved black microfiber with red stitching. It has the advantage of offering excellent resistance to water and wear.
On the motor side, this watch is powered by a high quality Sellita SW200 automatic movement.
Robust and sporty, the Squale T-183 It is a remarkable watch, needless to say. For its unique aesthetic first, but also for its diving capabilities as it is waterproof up to 600m underwater, or 60 ATM anyway! This watch plays in the big leagues and offers you a dip in the big bath with ample exploration possibilities.
Obviously it is a high-end model of the Swiss brand.
Price: 1,250 CHF.
