A unique insight into the family-owned brand with an impressive history and an exciting future ahead
In our latest podcast episode, Andrea Maggi from legendary dive watch brand Squale joins podcast host Anthony and fellow brand owner Jon, from WatchGecko and Geckota.
As well as exciting news about forthcoming releases from the brand, Andrea gives a fascinating insight into the history of the brand and what makes it so special, and the connection between the original owners, the Von Buren family and the Maggi family.
Andrea also chats about the brand’s strong link to the professional diving community and brand ambassador Vincenzo Ferri’s upcoming free-diving record attempt. He also reveals why the brand recently relocated from Italy to Switzerland, and answers some of the burning questions that you, our audience wanted us to put to him.
In what has been a challenging time for many, Andrea and Jon discuss the impact that Brexit and Covid has had on their businesses and what it means to you as customers. They also provide a frank account of where they think Baselworld went wrong and what future watch events could look like following its demise.
Sit back and enjoy!
