Islander Automatic Dive Watch with Solid-Link Bracelet, AR Sapphire Crystal, Dual-Time Luminious 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 A Great Value! October 9, 2019
Reviewer: JSMNVA from Reston, VA United States  
I’ve had my Islander dual time dive watch for several weeks, wearing it almost exclusive of other watches I own.  Bottom line, my initial impressions of this watch have held up.  The watch is a quality product.  For me, the highlights include 1)  the dual time bezel and the way the indices and numerals dovetail with the dial; 2) the bracelet, which is very high quality but not too thick; 3) the heft of the case, and 4) the AR enhanced flat crystal and simplicity of the dial.  This watch is a great value for the price.  I don’t have any real cons.  It’s a substantive piece of kit and not suitable for heavy manual labor, but other than that, it’s ideal for most everyday uses, and quite comfortable.  Looking forward to future Islander offerings!

4 of 5 Beautiful watch but band has issues. October 5, 2019
Reviewer: Chris Daugherty from Hudson, FL United States  
The watch is as beautiful as advertised. Unfortunately, the steel band mine came with has a problem with the first link on the 12 o'clock side of the watch. It is so tight that it binds the free movement of the link connected to it causing the watch to ride not quite right on my wrist. It appears that the link is not milled quite right which causes it to fit too tightly. It is a little disappointing but not a big enough issue for me to send the watch back.

5 of 5 Beatiful watch; unbelievable value! September 30, 2019
Reviewer: Robert S. from Los Angeles, CA United States  
I received my Islander just the other day and I'm beyond satisfied.  To say that this watch is an SKX-killer is to sell it short.  The upgrades -- sapphire crystal, ceramic bezel, winding/hacking movement, solid end links, and raised indices -- lift it above Seiko's Turtle, Samurai, and Sumo models at a higher price-point.   The only demerit (which at this price is completely understandable) is the pressed clasp.  If cost makes correcting this flaw prohibitive, it would be nice if Marc could offer the up-grade option of separately purchasing a compatible milled clasp.
 
For the modders out there, there's no need to start from scratch with an SKX007 anymore.  The Islander already has most of the upgrades one could want, and the remaining mod parts --  bezels, bezel inserts, chapter rings, and hands -- are much less expensive than the others.

The Islander is a grand slam home run for Long Island Watch, and I look forward to Marc's future creations.

5 of 5 Islander Duel Time. Love it! September 27, 2019
Reviewer: Jim Johnson from Boise, ID United States  
Mark
Yesterday I recieved my Islander Dual Time watch. I have completely detailed it I must say that it exceeds my expectations.  The raised, applied indices are absolutely the tipping point of making this watch perfect.  After setting and wearing it for 24hrs it is running -3 seconds. Quality product and great performance.  I can't wait for new models to come! Thank you!

5 of 5 Well done September 27, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from UT United States  
I don't normally write reviews online, but this was worth it. Received my Islander Dual Time today and couldn't be happier. This watch is an excellent value, well put together with a real feel of quality. All the upgrades I wanted without any hassle. Well done!
