Islander 38mm Automatic Dive Watch with Solid-Link Bracelet, AR Sapphire Crystal, and Luminous Ceramic Bezel Insert #ISL-05

Island Watch would like to introduce you to the new Islander dive watch. You will immediately notice that is has a very familiar 38mm case with an offset screw-down crown at 4:00. Thickness is 13mm and tip to tip it is a very wearable 44.5mm. Note that the lug ends are drilled for easier bracelet to strap changes. The case back has a rendering of Long Island on it along with the Islander name, Island Watch and 200 meter water resistance.

Inside the case is an NH36, 24-jewel automatic movement with 21,600 vibrations per hour. This self-winding movement supports hand winding and hacks (seconds hand stops when you pull out the crown). Power reserve is about 41 hours fully wound. The NH36 also has both a day and date wheel viewed at 3:00 on the dial.

The black dial has SuperLuminova on the hands and hour makers and the Island Watch logo is luminous under 12:00. The 120-click uni-directional bezel has a scratch-resistant black (
diver marked) ceramic insert that is also treated with SuperLuminova for a maximum glow-in-the-dark experience when lights go out. It's bright and long lasting.

The dial has enhanced visibility due to the use of an anti-reflective flat sapphire crystal that also guards against scratches. The anti-reflective coating is on the underside of the sapphire and it imparts a bluish hue at some viewing angles.

Upgraded: We have enhanced the bracelet with solid links, solid end links and a dual push-button milled scissor deployant clasp with three position micro-adjustment. Screws are now used (instead of pins) for sizing the bracelet. Also, The crown is now signed with the Island Watch logo.

NOTE: The Islander dive and dual-time watch is compatible with aftermarket parts available at Island Watch (and elsewhere) for the SKX013 models, such as crystals, bezels, inserts, chapter rings, dials, hands, bracelets, etc.

5 of 5 Great Value November 26, 2020
Reviewer: Tiga from Honolulu, HI United States  
This watch has become my go to during the work week. The 38mm case is perfect for smaller wrists, and I ts durability and ruggedness is perfect for everyday use. If you’re looking for solid materials and features at a great price I highly recommend an Islander.

5 of 5 Only minor gripes, great piece November 5, 2020
Reviewer: Dallas A from Jacksonville, NC United States  
Can't find a better value. Pros-everything you could ask for. Ceramic lumed bezel, sapphire crystal with AR, drilled lugs, solid en links, milled clasp, screw pins. NH36 movement with hacking/hand wind. It's much better than any stock skx, and a complete STEAL. Works with skx parts.
Cons. One of my links was warped and wouldn't take a screw pin, which is fine because I had to remove 3 or 4 links. The crystal is great, however the outside edge distorts the dial. Fine on the 42, but on the 38 it's impossible to see the chapter ring without angling it. (It's aligned). A big complaint I have that I will remedy myself is the crown guards are very sharp, as well as a few sharp finishes on the bracelet. No big deal for the price as the bracelet is great, especially for a 300 dollar piece. I don't want to file the crown guards down but I may have to. The bezel can be stiff. Applied silicone grease and worked the bezel. Thanks to Marc and all the staff at LIW. Phenomenal.

5 of 5 Fantastic customer service & product October 31, 2020
Reviewer: William Furner from Maidstone , Kent United Kingdom  
The original watch sent unfortunately had a faulty date function otherwise the watch was perfect. It is well made and highly spec’d and looks great.
I contacted customer services and received a reply from Marc who couldn’t have been more helpful. He sent out a replacement without quibble and immediately. Great communication too. He really cares about his customers. Many thanks

5 of 5 The Little Watch That Could October 14, 2020
Reviewer: Jacody Cox from United States  
I haven't had this watch very long but, I don't need to have it for a month to know I love it. Hacking is an amazing feature to have on a first automatic for someone like me who is obsessed with accurate timekeeping. My only complaint was the bezel being a bit tight but, I oiled it slightly and it instantly got smooth. Thank you Marc for the outstanding quality, my Islander will defiantly stay on my wrist for decades to come.
