Experience and expertise in underwater exploration
The story of Drass runs parallel with mankind’s passion for exploration of our oceans. Established in 1927 in Livorno, Italy, and headquartered in what has become one of the largest seaports in both the Mediterranean and the world, Drass’s unique history and extensive achievements have kept them at the forefront of manufacturing subaqueous technology. Synonymous with some of the most influential maritime inventions of the twentieth century—they produced some of the earliest submarines, atmospheric diving suits which would revolutionize deep-sea exploration in the 1920s and 1930s.
Following the war, Drass became both recognized and reputable for their diving helmets and hyperbaric equipment. Jacques Cousteau’s celebrated subsea documentaries of the 1960s and 70s were made possible by their decompression chambers. And when Hollywood needed subaquatic vehicles for the iconic underwater battle scenes in the 1965 James Bond movie “Thunderball,” they turned to Drass to provide them Similar vehicles have been made not only for cinematographic purposes but also for professional purposes: from the CIA, through the U.S. Special Forces to the Navy Seals in the 1950s and 1960s, there are multiple special forces that collaborated with Drass. In subsequent years, Drass continued to innovate with its helium-saturated deep-diving bells, abyssal simulators and, above all, compact submarines for military use; a concentration of unique technology.
Today, Drass, in addition to offering a range of totally revamped traditional vehicles, continues to produce the most advanced vehicles for elite navies around the world, such as the Drass DRV (Deep Rescue Veichle) vehicle currently used by the Italian Navy, patented by Drass in 2017 in collaboration with SAIPEM, a leading Italian company in the infrastructure sector. It is in fact a truly revolutionary vehicle, the first in the world capable of operating remotely to rescue submarine crews stranded at great depths.To celebrate this supply, Squale, in agreement with Drass, has decided to market a model called Squale Periscope. The model in question has one difference from the one supplied to Drass, namely the dial: to underline the synergy between the two companies, it was decided to offer both the Squale logo and the Drass logo.
All the features of the watch are the same as those of the Drass Periscope in supply to Drass, making this watch available not only to professionals, but to all undersea and military enthusiasts.
