Vintage MasterModel VINMAS.SIL By Page & Cooper Collabs
During 2012 on our last visit to the Squale workshops, we were both surprised and delighted to find, still wrapped in original protective paper, 60 unused NOS Squale Master Bezels from the early 1960's.
Each bezel has individually applied metal markers on a painted background with a tritium triangle and all are sealed with an epoxy.
Just sixty bezels are available, divided into three colours. Twenty black, twenty silver/black and twenty azure blue/black.
These are original non click friction bezels designed for a domed, acrylic crystal.
Each of these very special watches are hand made in Switzerland in the traditional way to do full justice to our original and beautiful hand crafted bezels.
The acrylic crystals were remade in Neuchatal (birthplace of Squale) as were the hands and beautifully rendered sun-ray dials.
We have chosen two straps for their unique and interesting character. Our leather strap is hand made in Italy and features a square buckle and pin with the Squale logo. Our rubber dive strap is again made from genuine rubber in Italy and features a slim vintage tapered design with a 90 degree right angle click, originally designed for wetsuits.
Each of the sixty Page and Cooper Squale Masters will be engraved with its own individual number and the Page and Cooper wings.
It will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Andrea Maggi of Squale and Jonathan Bordell of Page and Cooper. Each will be assembled over the coming months by Squale's oldest and most experienced watchmaker, Franco. Franco began his career at Squale in the 1960's and this will be his last project before he retires.
We have just bought back one of our treasures Vintage Master Limited Edition watches.
Just 60 of these very special watches were made and they sold out within a few weeks.
This watch, 56/60, is in excellent condition with the plastic protective film in place. Nevertheless, we have inspected the watch in our workshop and it has been tested and pressure checked.
Please note the original watch roll is missing,

After seeing the videos of the Squale Master being brought back to life and the history of the brand, I felt very fortunate that I was able to secure the watch that I wanted. Jonathan was first class in helping me and telling me about the product.
When it arrived the packaging and accessories were totally as described and I feel privileged that I have purchased a watch that looks great, has a lot of history and is likely to appreciate in future. Thank you Page and Cooper
