Description Technical Specs

Islander Automatic Dive Watch with Solid-Link Bracelet, AR Sapphire Crystal, Dual-Time Luminous Ceramic Bezel Insert #ISL-01

Island Watch would like to introduce you to the new Islander dive watch. You will immediately notice that is has a very familiar 43mm case with an offset screw-down crown at 4:00. Thickness is 14mm and tip to tip it is a very wearable 46mm (i.e. looks big, but doesn't wear big on your wrist). 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 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. It is quite 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.

And, lastly you get a beefy bracelet with solid links, solid end links and a dual push-button flip lock deployant clasp with three position micro-adjustment. For sizing the bracelet, you will find screws are used for removing bracelet links instead of pins.

NOTE: The Islander dive and dual-time watch is compatible with aftermarket parts available at Island Watch (and elsewhere) for the SKX007 models, such as crystals, bezels, inserts, chapter rings, dials, hands, bracelets, etc.

5 of 5 Islander#ISL-01 December 3, 2019
Reviewer: Tom Shanklin from Chino, CA United States  
All I can say is - Well Done!  This is a fantastic timepiece irregardless of the price!  Island Watch nailed the styling, finish, weight and overall appearance of this watch.  I've been a fan of the Seiko SKX for sometime and own several examples and this watch is just as nice or better than the SKX.  5 Stars for sure!

5 of 5 This is AWESOME November 26, 2019
Reviewer: sam Sullivan from Portland, OR United States  
Whats up watch crew.
I've been in the market for a SKX 007 for a while now. Having recently gotten into the watch game, I knew that a Diver would be a great addition to my collection and the SKX seemed like a no brainer.
UNTIL... I really started to do some research, and I was a little bummed out to find no sapphire crystal, ceramic bezel, hacking/hand winding.
I've always been a fan of Marks Youtube channel and found it very insightful and fun to watch;) pun intended.
So when Mark mentioned that he was releasing a watch I jumped at the chance.
Watch got in yesterday, got it fitted today. It is truly an awesome piece. I love the look and feel, very clean and is made with quality material.
I'm happy to support small businesses and Marks brand. Also I ordered on Friday, and got the watch on Monday. Completely unreal customer service and very happy. Thanks Mark and Team!

5 of 5 Worth the wait November 21, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
Bought from the 2nd release.  I had this item shipped to Europe, as anticipated got here quickly but sat in customs for 3 weeks.  Even after paying the VAT I couldn't be happier.  It really does wear smaller than 43mm on wrist, I was initially holding out for 38mm but now think that would have been way too small for me.

The upgraded sapphire, dial and bracelet make this a great addition.  The date even came in the local language!

Great service, product and community here.  Thanks Mark!  I'll be back for sure.

5 of 5 New Islander Dual Time November 18, 2019
Reviewer: Jeffery from Superior, WI United States  
This was my first purchase from IW and it was a good one. I picked up the Islander Automatic Dive watch with solid-link bracelet, AR sapphire crystal, dual-time luminous ceramic bezel insert # ISL-01. The Islander watch is even better with the modifications made on the Seiko platform.   The bracelet was easy to size even with pins rather than screws. It appears to be keeping great time, if it has gained or lost time it is insignificant. I am happy with the watch.
