Just picked this up. It's really very nice but a tick big for me so going to grab a 50 Atmos instead.

From Squale website:
Squale 1000 meter Professional Swiss Automatic Dive watch with Sapphire Crystal #2002BK-R
The Squale 101 ATMOS Ref. 2002 watch is a remake of the original 101ATMOS from the 70s. Made in Switzerland, the new Squale 2002 model is a 1000 meter dive watch that has the famous snap-on uni-directional bezel and 3.5mm thick sapphire crystal with a double gasket to ensure outstanding water resistance. The unique black bezel insert is made of hard bakelite that is colored in a multi-stage process. First the phosphorescent material is applied by hand, followed by coloring with varnishes immune to seawater corrosion, and then application to the supporting steel substrate. This guarantees excellent bezel legibility. Like the vintage Squale model that inspired it, the bezel can always be unscrewed from above.

Includes an offset crown and a solid stainless steel case back. The watch’s discreet elegance is combined with reliability, and durability through the use of special Swedish steels. Mechanical reliability is guaranteed by the well tried and tested Swiss ETA 2824-2 automatic movement. The 2002 also features an adjustable-length real rubber strap with safety catch to match the dial color.

Special Feature: On the Squale 2002 models you can 'push' down on the bezel to turn it freely; then when you release the pressure it returns to the regular 'click' mode.

Comes with the OEM Grey Rubber, and another grey leather strap.
I'll throw in the Sherpa nubuck strap that's in a couple of the pictures as well.
OCD full disclosure; there's a tiny speck of dust until the crystal around 8:00. It's tiny enough that Paul didn't even notice it if that gives you an idea. I tried to really light it up so it would stand out.
