Now having said that, I also know from my experience working at DOXA that there are those "milestone" holidays where the watch recipient "to be" has been particularly good, or had a special achievement. Their partner, parent, significant other, boss or good friend wants to take this opportunity to do something special and a holiday gift feels like the right opportunity. And yes, even this Grinch gets that.
Enter the Squale 200 Meter
So let's get back to today's topic - the Squale 200 Meter. It ticks a lot of boxes for watch fans. A brand with some history, a timeless diver, made of sturdy stuff and powered by an ETA 2824-2.
But most of all, as it pertains to reality - it is priced at a point that while a stretch for some folks, if planned for might be within the realms of possibility -
Just south of $595.00 US at the Squale USA site.
Here are the pertinents -
