Islander 38mm Automatic Dive Watch with Solid-Link Bracelet, AR Sapphire Crystal, and Luminous Sapphire Bezel Insert #ISL-21


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 green dial has SuperLuminova on the hands and hour makers and the Island Watch logo is black under 12:00. The 120-click uni-directional bezel has a scratch-resistant green sapphire
insert that is also treated with SuperLuminova for a maximum glow-in-the-dark experience when lights go out.

The dial has enhanced visibility due to the use of an anti-reflective double dome 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. The ISL-21 green dial model is fitted with a set of distinctive MM-style hands with the red dot-white dot seconds hand. This model also features a distinctive coin-edge bezel.

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.

5 of 5 Amazing watch, the colour is stunnning June 15, 2020
Reviewer: Andrew  
The watch is much smaller then expecting being used to larger divers. (Turtles, SKX007, Baby Tuna ect.) After sizing it for my 18cm (7 inch) wrist, the smaller look is amazing, very vintage and the dial colour is absolutely fantastic! The lume with the bezel halo affect and the hand set makes this a pleasure to view in lower light. If you have never worn a sub 40mm diver before definitely give it a try!

5 of 5 Ticks all the boxes June 15, 2020
Reviewer: RP from Denmark  
I've never owned a "real" SKX, but  have looked at the 38mm variants for a while. Due to the recent increase in quality in the 300 dollar microbrand segment, I would feel shortchanged spending that on a comparatively old watch.

I feel everything BUT shortchanged with my ISL-21. Besides uncomfortable crown guards (that I assume are exact matches of the Seiko ones), and endlinks that are slightly on the thicc side, I can't fault it in any way. The honeymoon has lasted a couple of weeks now, and I have yet to glance at the other pieces on the watch box.

It's all I would ever need in a watch...

4 of 5 It is a good watch but... June 11, 2020
Reviewer: Wayne Niide from Honolulu, HI United States  
There are a lot of positives about this watch:

1) Color
2) *Double dome sapphire*
3) Angled bezel insert
4) "O" bracelet with screw posts / links

And it's a 38mm mid-size which has the appeal of being sports/dress watch hybrid.

However, the lume dots & numerals should have been sized in proportion to mid-size...didn't look right.  In addition the hour and minute hands should have had a more refined look too "clunky" for my taste.

5 of 5 Beautiful green dial! June 11, 2020
Reviewer: PacNW Hiker from Washington State, United States  
Overall, I'm very pleased with the Island Watch buying experience and would recommend them and this product!  
I love green dial watches and this one is a gem!  Literally, looks like an emerald on your wrist.  The Islander 38mm's are huge value and easy to mod since all the dimensions, etc. mirror parts from the SKX 013.  I think a jubilee bracelet is a better choice for this watch since it's a bit more "blingy."  I also replaced my bezel insert with a black ceramic one to tone down the amount of green and since I found that the clarity of the numbers on the luminous sapphire bezel are not as "crisp" as I'd like.
