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 GADA Watch July 21, 2020
Reviewer: Joshua M from AL, United States  
Received this watch around mid-May 2020 and have worn it everyday since. It's been on my wrist while in the pool, ocean, shooting targets, etc. It felt just at home relaxing on the beach as it does going out for a date night with my wife. I've had it on different style zulus and natos, just to try it out. They all worked well, but the best "style," for me, was the black and grey seatbelt nato that Marc offers with his other Islander. Changes the watch dramatically - that is, if you are seeking that low-key, subtle look. But I personally think it looks and feels best on the stock jubilee. Watch still looks new (thanks to the sapphire and ceramic glass/bezel) and gains about ~10 secs a day, according to the Watchcheck app. Thanks for giving us a quality product, Marc!

5 of 5 Can't ask for more. July 5, 2020
Reviewer: Tim Leigh from Liverpool, Merseyside United Kingdom  
At 38mm this watch fills a niche left vacant by many mainstream sellers. It has classic SKX styling but with all the upgrades you would want and may not necessarily expect.

I am extremely pleased by this purchase and will be keeping an eye out for any future models as I'm some Marc is always thinking of ways to improve the design.  

I also like the somewhat minimalist branding of the Islander brand.

5 of 5 Great watch. Tremendous value. Buy it. June 27, 2020
Reviewer: M Goss from IL United States  
I've been wearing the ISL-05 for a few months and can very honestly say I am EXTREMELY impressed. I don't foresee it coming out of my regular rotation. It is everything great about the SKX, with some much needed quality of life improvements. This piece offers insane value for the money. It is a huge strap monster...I've been wearing it on a variety of Natos. The bracelet it comes on is more than okay but I just prefer nylon. Nicely finished, built like a tank, a true diver and perfect homage to the SKX0013. Well done, LIW!
