Islander 38mm Automatic Dive Watch with Solid-Link Bracelet, AR Sapphire Crystal, and Luminous Dual-Time Ceramic Bezel Insert #ISL-20

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
dual-time ceramic insert that is also treated with SuperLuminova for a maximum glow-in-the-dark experience when lights go out. The dual-time bezel lets you track a second 12 hour time zone. It is very easy to use.

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: The bracelet has solid links, and solid end links. Screws are now used for adjustments (instead of pins) for sizing the bracelet. It now also features a robust milled scissor push-button deployant clasp with three position micro-adjustment. 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.

4 of 5 38mm Dive November 22, 2020
Reviewer: Paul from The Netherlands  
Very happy with the watch in general, although crown guards are too big or crown to small....very difficult to screw down. Bracelet is nice but clasp cheap.
Had to pay about $80 import duty, not really worth it on a $300 watch !! This is not your problem as long as my purchase price was Tax Free!!

5 of 5 My new Islander November 16, 2020
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Pictou, NS Canada  
I am very pleased with my new purchase. I was looking for dive watch as a daily wearer and thought of getting a Seiko SKX 013 but then Mark came along with his Islander line of watches and I decided to buy the ISL 20. I was also pleased with the easy online purchasing and delivery.

4 of 5 Too small; bezel is 37mm November 2, 2020
Reviewer: Mark Patterson from KANSAS CITY, MO United States  
Other than being too small, even on my super skinny wrist, it's a great watch.  Has hand winding and hacking (second hand stops when you pull the crown out) and it's reasonably accurate so far.

5 of 5 Love It! October 8, 2020
Reviewer: Vince from Tempe, AZ United States  
I've had my Islander for 3 wks now and I love it!
It looks great, wears great, and accuracy over time is great( better than I expected ).   I've had many compliments on how good looking this watch is.  I  do wish, however, the SuperLuminova was a bit brighter, tho.   Having said all this, you've hit a home run, Marc!

5 of 5 Just a great watch October 2, 2020
Reviewer: Leland Deane from Huntington, NY United States  
I couldn't resist the premise: a 38 mm watch that was low key, had great glass and a ceramic bezel. Tried and replaced the metal bands with a rotation of Barton Rubber straps and they fit perfectly and look grate. The watch wears so well on the wrist and you begin to appreciate the little details that make this watch so enjoyable. Good accuracy (fast about 8 secs per day) and I like that it 'doesn't scream'. Seiko movement reliability, solid build, rotating bezel that's not wobbly, and much more.
The ultra thin Blancpain, JaegerLeCoultre, and the stainless Rolex date all sit idle...it's crazy.
Keep these 38 mm styles coming Mark!
