Why We Love It
We love a good micro brand watch, and JS Watch Company produces some of our very favorites!
Self-proclaimed as 'Probably The World's Smallest Watch Manufacture' in Reykjavik, Iceland, JS Watch Company designs and assembles a small selection of models annually - this Islandus 1919 model being one of them.
This early model is numbered #26 and features a 42mm stainless case brushed to a matte finish, luminous black matte dial with small hours register and oversized minutes display, date, and sapphire display back. Powered by an ETA 2824-2, this piece comes accompanied with its original brown leather strap with signed buckle, inner box, books, and timing sheet dated 2007.
Originally purchased by a world-renowned chef and friend of Analogshift, this is a well-built, highly legible, and ultimately super-fun micro brand with a great story. Its rare that JS Watches are traded on the secondary market, so don't miss scooping this up!
JS Watch Company is Iceland's first - and currently only - Icelandic watch manufacture.
Launched in 2005, the brand has developed a cult-like following (and an impressive list of celebrity clientele) amongst watch enthusiasts, who inevitably make the pilgrimage to their small studio and workshop when visiting Reykjavik. Designed and assembled in-house utilizing high-grade Swiss components, JS Watch Company produces a small number of timepieces annually, and prides itself on customer service.
