FS: SQUALE 50 Atmos MARINA MILITARE PVD Italian Comsubin 1980

FS: Rare SQUALE 50 Atmos MARINA MILITARE PVD Italian Comsubin (Marinecorps)

Hi, due large collection reduction for sale an absolutely rare Squale 50 Atmos “Marina Militare” PVD.
It was used by Comsubin (Italian Marine specialized submariner corps) during 1980-1990 period.
Here you can find some news about its less rare brother:

Automatic, reference 1521 caliber ETA 2824. Case in stainless steel with PVD treatment.
Quickset date.
Shows light signs of age and use (see pictures). Diameter is 40 mm.
Back cover is stainless steel. It is written “STAINLESS STEEL - MOD. DEPOSEE - 50 ATMOS – SWISS MADE – PROFESSIONAL” and the logo SQUALE with the famous shark.
Dial is original, wonderful, with rare “black tritium” (as told about these watches for minimize the glow in the dark during night war actions). It is written “MARINA MILITARE” in yellow; then “50 ATMOS” - logo SQUALE with shark - “PROFESSIONAL” - “T-SWISS MADE-T”.
The crown is screwdown, with Squale logo.
The glass is mineral, perfect, without any trace.
Bezel is unidirectional, turns freely with 60 clicks.
The strap is gum, is universal strap not logged Squale.

This wristwatch is in amazing condition, functioning perfectly, keeps good time, regular power reserve, quickdate sets as should and changing at midnight as should.
I don't know anything about last service. Since my watches NEVER seen the water (I keep away even when washing hands) I don't know about its water resistance. Although this Squale is 50 atmos I have never performed any test, so I DO NOT recommend swimming or take a bath with it unless do a proper test!
I am a collector, not a commercial seller, so I cannot give any guarantee except as described.
Please look carefully pictures. Wristwatch as far as I know is fully functional and keeps good time.

For this rare SQUALE 1521 50 Atmos Marina Militare PVD I ask 1500€ (paypal add +5%, or bank transfer) plus DHL shipping.

The SQUALE is located here in Italy. I will not responsible of custom charges.

I am "asquinet" on ebay and on many wristwatches forum. Feel free to ask any further picts or info.
