Squale 1521 Classic COSC Certified Chronometer

Published By

A watch is a watch is a watch—until you talk to the Swiss, who will kindly inform you that the difference between chronographs and chronometers is of dire importance. In fact, there’s a whole organization dedicated to the certification of genuine precision timekeeping instruments: The Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres (COSC).

To say that a certification from the COSC is highly sought after in the watchmaking world is a huge understatement. So when Squale announced their new 1521 Classic model would be officially certified by the COSC, watch nerds were abuzz around the world.

In addition to its impeccable, Swiss-certified timekeeping abilities, this classically-styled icon is water resistant to 50 atmospheres—nearly 1700 feet. All said and done, it’s a truly exceptional piece of engineering.
