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 BLACK 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. (the dial is black.)

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 Great watch May 16, 2020
Reviewer: Max Stegner from Concord, CA United States  
I absolutely love this watch.  It was everything I was looking for.  I really can’t believe that all these features such as a ceramic bezel, sapphire crystal, great movement and awesome bracelet were able to be on this affordable watch.  I’ve been testing how well the movement keeps time and it’s only been +2 seconds a day which is incredible.  Thank you so much Marc.  You guys are awesome.

5 of 5 Delightful May 13, 2020
Reviewer: John S. from ON Canada  
I am beyond happy with this timepiece. I am a neophyte collector and chose this watch to fulfill my requirements and it more than met my expectations. Well done Mark.  I am excitedly awaiting my next acquisition and track it every day.
I must admit that the exchange in our dollar makes me somewhat reserved  but I love what you are doing  and will continue to enjoy Watch and Learn. I peruse the on line catalogue on an almost daily basis.
Cheers,     John  S

3 of 5 Disappointed May 9, 2020
Reviewer: S. Ramirez from Sterling Heights, MI United States  
Two problems with the watch:
1- The hands are misaligned. If I set the time let's say at 6 o'clock, the hour hand is clearly shifted to the left.
2 - I had a very hard time sizing the bracelet because the screw heads are so tiny that not even my smallest screwdriver could fit in the groove to make them turn. I had to literally sharpen the screw driver tip to make it work.

2 of 5 Bezel Alignment May 5, 2020
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Amherst, NY United States  
Love the style, finishing and all upgrades compared to the skx. Also, the customer service and promptness addressing concerns is excellent as Marc addressed a stiff bezel and was able to fix it for me. My biggest turnoff with the skx has always been the bezel alignment or lack there of. My ISL 01 is the same. When the triangle marker on the bezel is directly aligned over the 12 hour marker on the chapter ring the rest of the numbers on the bezel are all misaligned. If i put the triangle one click past the 12 hour marker most of the numbers are aligned but the triangle marker is out of place. My wife noticed this when looking at it and agreed they are all out of alignment. Again, i love everything else about this watch but one of my personal reasons for trying this was for bezel alignment which goes unresolved.
