From OceanicTime Circa 2012:
The new SQUALE 101 ATMOS LE Ref. 2002LE makes its online debut on Gnomon Watches, who are an authorized dealer of SQUALE. The new version of the 101 ATMOS, which is a remake of the original 101 ATM from the 70s with its famous snap-on rotary bezel is unique in the fact that it now sports a helium release valve at 10 o’clock. Not only this but the new LE also offers a new customization option that allows you to put a name or desired text on its dial at 9 o’clock
The 1000 meters watch with the famous snap-on rotary bezel and 3.5mm thick sapphire crystal with double gasket to ensure outstanding resistance. The bakelite bevel is coloured in a multi-stage process. First the phosphorescent SuperLuminova material is applied by hand, followed by colouring with varnishes immune to seawater corrosion, and then application to the supporting steel substrate. This guarantees that the component is warm to the touch while guaranteeing excellent bevel legibility thanks to the transparency.Like the model that inspired it, the bezel can always be unscrewed from above.
The etched caseback and the special diving winder. All painstakingly designed details, crafted to make a product that keeps faith with the Squale brand philosophy.The 101ATMOS’s discreet elegance is combined with reliability, provided for example by the Swedish steels used. Another unique feature of the the 2002LE – Limited Edition different is the addition of a helium release valve at 10 o’clock. This is not available on the regular 101ATMOS models.
Mechanical reliability is guaranteed by the well tried and tested ETA 2824-2 which Squale has been working with for around 50 years.This time, the 2002 also features adjustable-length 4.5mm thick mesh bracelet.
Truly a 1 of a kind Squale! Absolutely Rare and a beautiful watch to have in your collection – As long as you don’t mind “Dave Chang” on the dial 😉
