Looks like lug holes too. A no date without the helmet logo would be great.

For me they should do one without date window and ditch the red on the minute hand... all white will work just fine. Otherwise it looks awesome!

A different take on the 1521. I like it.

I like it three Paul, or is four, or five?! :grin:

It's different, but nice, and traditional when you think about it also. 8-)
Feels like some new old stock Squale that was found, or discovered in
their headquaters, or vault, or something. :o :) It's just awesome !!! :headbang:
Really appreciate the news about it !!!

Anyone knows what Drass means? I have seen some other watches connected with that word but I don't know what it means.

https://www.drass.tech/drass-history/

Anonimo's definition:

“Drass” is an acronym meaning “Double Refinished Anonimo Steel Surface.” It begins with the so-called Ox-Pro treatment, developed in cooperation with the Italian navy for weaponry, binoculars and other military applications in which metal items must be camouflaged. Ox-Pro is a 14-step
oxidation process that uses selected acids to treat the surface layer of steel, rendering it more corrosion-resistant and nonreflective, as well as turning the steel a darker, gunmetal color. After this process, the treated steel case is then sandblasted to remove the least-resistant surface layer. The
resulting drass case has both a distinctive, dark look and a higher scratch-resistance than typical stainless steel.
