    Squale 1521 500M with Polished Case

    Posted by Larry Duncan on Mar 7th 2021

    I love this watch! The bright metallic blue is amazing in any light. The watch is more impressive on the wrist than in the online photos. The dial appears to float due to the mirrored concave surrounding ring. The crown is almost not seen when screwed down due to the contoured of the polished case. I love the beautiful and supple vintage tan strap but I also bought the Squale branded steel mesh bracelet to change up the look periodically since this watch will get a lot of wrist time. And Marc also gets 5 stars for the great company he runs and his continued outstanding responsiveness whenever I have a question.

    Squale 1521

    Posted by Michael White on Jan 18th 2021

    Gorgeous watch, the blue face is wonderful under any light. The aluminium bezel insert has a eye catching metallic sheen. The case shape is brilliant, it sits really well on the wrist. The leather strap was one of the best I've seen and felt, although I found it a little on the small side with my 8 and 1/2 inch wrist. But that tends to be the case with most watch straps for me. I've put mine on an anthracite grey tropic strap, which fits me better and compliments the vintage feel of the watch. The lume is good, not the best I've seen, but I've got no complaints. Accuracy on mine seems to be around +5 seconds per day, based on how often it seems to gain a minute when worn daily. My only real complaint is that the crown is a little fiddly to operate, although it is very well tucked away which helps with the comfort of wearing it. Between the case shape which hugs my wrist and the carefully tucked away crown this is easily the most comfortable watch that I own.

    My grail watch

    Posted by W.R. on Dec 26th 2020

    I love the 1521 - 026 -BLR I have wanted this watch for three or four years. Every year at the Black Friday sale I would say I'm gonna buy it, and I just wouldn't pull the trigger. I would buy something else that I wanted that was a little less expensive. But this year On Black Friday, I was lucky enough to get one. After they cleared customs ha ha. I have worn it almost every day since I got it. It's perfect. I like that they took Squale off the side of the case, I love the orange minute hand and the Tucktaway crown at 4 o'clock. I just wished I would've ordered the mesh bracelet.

    Great watch, great customer service

    I received my Squale 1521 very shortly after ordering. The watch is even better in person than in pictures. As always, Marc and his staff were quick to process the order, and responsive in communication.

    Beautiful Watch

    Posted by Joe on Dec 21st 2020

    Bought this watch the sale on Thanksgiving. The watch was delivered within a week and Marc answered numerous questions and concerns I had about watch. This watch is beautiful and pictures does not do it justice. The quality is is what you'd expect at this price point. It would have been nice if Squale used a ceramic bezel but still doesn't take away from the watch. The orange minute hand makes the watch easy to read. At night the lume is bright enough to read the watch. Lastly, I've been averaging around 3.5 seconds a day gain on the watch. This far exceeded my expectations for the Sellita SW200-1 movement. Overall great buy!

    Great looking blue

    Posted by SQ on Nov 8th 2020

    Beautiful looking piece all around with a high end finish. You get a lot bang for your buck here. The minute orange marker is perfect, makes this so easy to quickly read the time and perfect contrast to the blue dial. My 3rd watch I've purchased from Mark and IslandWatch and couldn't be happier with the experience. Mark, you are true pro, quite the gentleman. Thank you again.
