Islander 38mm Automatic Dive Watch with Solid-Link Bracelet, AR Sapphire Crystal, and Luminous Ceramic Bezel Insert #ISL-23

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 yellow 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 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: 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 38mm Islander Yellow Thumbs Up! September 12, 2020
Reviewer: Tony from Richfield, MN United States  
I have a number of good watches, including an ISL-20 black 38mm Islander. I ordered the yellow 38mm as a fun, stand out watch because of how satisfied I am with my ISL-20. Works well. Easy to resize because of screw pins. Keeps good time. Very comfortable. I highly recommend the Islander watches. As an aside, I have a 7 ½" wrist and it looks good.

5 of 5 Everything an experienced watch collector wants! September 10, 2020
Reviewer: Daniel Zsebehazy from Madison Heights, MI United States  
First of all, my experience with Island Watch was perfect, as usual. I always recommend them! Now, the watch. The first thing is that the yellow dial is iridescent, like candy. It's more beautiful than expected. The case and bracelet are superbly finished, and the bracelet fits my 7.75 inch wrist. Now, the features. Sapphire crystal, drilled lugs, solid end link bracelet with screwed links, lumed ceramic bezel. All the lume is great. I really like this watch and I plan to buy another Islander when I can.

5 of 5 Yellow islander August 18, 2020
Reviewer: JAMES  
It's a really solid watch.  I love my orient diver (also 200 m WR and automatic). This is a more solidly built robust watch.  The yellow is also metallic, which I love.  Lume is super bright, and I love that it's on the bezel.  Bezel is fine, functional and smooth.  You can't beat this watch.

5 of 5 Great Quality August 16, 2020
Reviewer: Brandon Hall  
I've been very impressed with the quality of this watch from the moment I opened the box. Fit and finish is amazing and you are getting features (ceramic bezel, sapphire crystal, applied markers, ect.) that you simply cannot find anywhere else for the price.

5 of 5 Pictures don't do it justice August 10, 2020
Reviewer: Eddie Chou from Somerset, NJ United States  
Just got it today 8/10/20.  Absolutely beautiful watch.  The yellow actually changes shades quite dramatically as you get into different lighting.  

The bezel is gorgeous.  You'd think it's just a normal ceramic insert bezel, but it pops in contrast with the yellow.  The bezel motion is very smooth and there is absolutely no give.

The watch band is high quality and removing links was very simple.  Had it sized within 5 minutes.  

I have very narrow wrists so the 38mm is the perfect size.  Marc has designed a slam dunk with this series.
