    So with no show this year where do you go to look at the latest and greatest in combines, augers and tractors?

    And yep, cracker day here in Canterbury as it often is on Show Day (but not always). Here’s a couple of pics of the Timex Helix in the full Canterbury sun-

    To many watch enthusiasts, there are watches in current production that, regardless of what we may think of them or whether we own one, we are glad that such historically significant models are still being manufactured. These watches are not re-issue nor remakes, but have been in either continuous or near-uninterrupted production with very few changes to their original specification and dimensions. Some even use the original tooling and manufacturing methods. The Omega Speedmaster Professional “Moonwatch” is one, the Mido Commander 1959 M8429.4.21.23 is another, so are the basic Seiko Quartz Tuna (Marinemaster 300m SBBN033), the Vostok Amphibia Classic, and until their discontinuation in 2018, the Seiko Automatic Diver's 200m SKX007/9 (7S26-0020), whose design lineage dates back to the late-1970s Quartz 150m Diver 7548.

    Here's another piece to add to that short list...

    SQUALE "50 ATMOS Classic" Ref. 1521-026/A

    It is odd that people like to mention Squale in the same breath as another brand starting with "S", a company that became famous from making Sub homages. This is despite Squale's illustrious 74-year history as a case manufacturer, specializing in dive watch cases, and a particularly influential one during 70s. The 50 ATMOS Ref. 1521-026/A, now designated the 50 ATMOS Classic, has been largely unchanged since its introduction in the late-1960s. It is running an equivalent-grade ETA automatic as the near-exact same 500m case manufactured for Blancpain's Fifty Fathoms "3H Bund" during the mid-70s, the same case as produced for the Doxa SUB 600T of the same period, as well as the case on which the early-80s Heuer 1000m Professional Ref. 980.023L was based.

    The 50 ATMOS 1521 was also the dive watch to the Italian Navy Diving Corp (Marina Militare Italiana) prior to, and thus serving alongside, later-issued Citizen Promaster NY0040 (Marina Militare 500m "200MM"). Like the Russian Vostok, Squale earns my respect in being an honest brand, not trying to over-capitalize on their heritage, and for keeping all this very accessible, at roughly the same price point as the entry-level Tuna Quartz SBBN033. Excellent build quality, fit & finish, on par with the likes of current Oris or TAG divers are the icing on this classic cake.

    On the instruments we entrust to pace our lives, to bear witness to our days, and to be the keepers of the most precious thing we have... time.

      Very nice shot, Leroy. This really lifts those elements of old world charm--acrylic-covered domed dial and minute hands that curves along with the contour, as well as the curved end sweep seconds. A treasure you own.
