2 - The first Squale Master

As the years went by, it became increasingly important to test timepieces to understand their actual reliability during dives,
especially as much of the machinery we use today did not yet exist. In 1968, Von Büren, along with other watchmaking brands facing the same need,
decided to establish the "Maison du Plongée" in Neuchâtel, a diving center that still exists today.
Here, diving enthusiasts could experiment with watches and test various parameters, including actual water and/or pressure resistance, readability, and wear.
Von Büren was not only a promoter of this project but also a key figure, serving as president of the center for several years.
