The watch is beautiful and has great wrist presence. The only think I could say could be better would be the leather strap. I will give it some time, but 1st impressions is that it feels cheaper and does not match the quality of the watch.

I've been wanting a Squale 1521 for some time and the timepiece met and exceeded all expectations. The design, fit, and finish is outstanding all-around. This is my second Squale and it won't be my last!

A quality product and good value for the specs. Also bought the mesh bracelet for the watch. Both came well packaged. The FedEx shipping had the package arrive in just a few business days. Quite satisfied with my purchase. Will definitely buy again from long island watch
The store is well organized and checking out is simple enough. I chose to shop with Long Island Watches largely thanks to the owners social media presence. This is my second purchase from LIW and I expect to return again in the future.

A truly stunning example of a diver watch by Squale. The history of the company and the quality passed down through generations is evident. One of a kind timepiece.
Marc was professional and informative. Helped me narrow down my decision. Great guy and he's passionate about what he does.

The polished 1521 with blue sunburst dial is my first Squale after seeing review videos by Marc and TGV of The Urban Gentry. It definitely is a quality piece as one would expect from any Swiss made brand. The dial and bezel color along with the case shape is something straight out of the 1970s. I remember when a lot of watches were made in this style. The Selita SW200-1 movement is very accurate and the hand winding is buttery smooth. As others have said, the crown, although beautifully executed, can be a bit difficult to operate. This is not a defect by any means but rather a design characteristic of such a recessed crown at the four o’clock position. Once unscrewed and pulled out to either of it’s setting positions, it behaves as expected. If this watch is worn daily, one will seldom need to adjust the crown except on short months for date correction and to touch up the timekeeping. Despite the 42mm size, the watch does not wear exceptionally large and the case shape and supple stock leather are very comfortable. Bezel action is precise and fitment is superb although the bezel insert on my example is perhaps one-third to one-half a click off. It is not misaligned enough to affect functionality or be considered a QC issue but something a watch lover who likes to admire the craftsmanship of these beloved mechanized companions can’t help but notice. If you love divers, brand heritage, a cool logo, the Seventies, or just appreciate a well made watch that not everyone around you is wearing, this is definitely worth checking out. Don’t hesitate though, I’ve noticed they seem to sell out quick.

This watch is so beautiful! It's my first Squale and I may have to just get more! I'm so glad I decided to get the bracelet also.

Dealing with Marc is great! I would totally recommend purchasing any of the items on his website. Everyone must consider owning at least one Islander watch. They are a great value for the components you get in a reliable and robust watch.

Finally pulled the trigger on a watch that I have been eyeing for quite some time and I'm very happy that I did. Lovely watch, great feel and fit. Perfect summer watch. Not in love with the crown so far as I find it a little tricky to unscrew and adjust but perhaps I will get used to it with some practice. Overall great purchase, Long Island Watch is a fantastic to deal with, very quick response to a request and gracious to accommodate and the shipping was super fast. I would definitely recommend.

Too small a diameter dial. I like bigger ones, like 46mm. Otherwise a good watch.

I am very satisfied with my first purchase with Long Island watches. I finally purchased a Squale 1521 blue dial with polished case, been looking at them for a while and absolutely loving it now that I have one.
Why Trust Verified Reviews?
Verified Reviews are real, authentic reviews collected from actual paying customers, using Shopper Approved's Verified Review Platform. When reviews are Verified by Shopper Approved, you know that you can trust them to make better buying decisions.
Unverified Reviews on the other hand, are reviews collected by Open Review platforms that allow anyone to leave a review, without any validation or proof of purchase. Unfortunately, most reviews you read online are Unverified Reviews, and can't be trusted.
As a consumer, here's how you can tell the difference:
Verified Reviews from Verified Review Platforms like Shopper Approved, have much higher review counts and higher overall Star ratings, because they attempt to collect reviews from every single paying customer.
Unverified Reviews from Open Review Platforms, tend to have much lower review counts and more negative Star ratings, because people with bad experiences are primarily those who leave reviews. This often creates a misleading, inaccurate portrayal of a companies true reputation.
So, when searching for Verified Reviews, look for the name you know you can trust. Shopper Approved.
