Islander Automatic Dive Watch with Solid-Link Bracelet, AR Sapphire Crystal, Luminous Ceramic Bezel Insert #ISL-03

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 dark blue dial has SuperLuminova on the hands and hour makers and the Island Watch logo is luminous under 12:00. The 120-click uni-directional bezel has a scratch-resistant blue and red (
diver marked) ceramic insert that is also treated with SuperLuminova for a maximum glow-in-the-dark experience when lights go out. It is 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 milled, 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 (and 009) models, such as crystals, bezels, inserts, chapter rings, dials, hands, bracelets, etc.

I gave this watch as a gift. The only thing I was upset about was not keeping this one for myself!

5 of 5 Isl-03 review September 26, 2020
Reviewer: Mikkel Adams from Bristol, CT United States  
Built sturdy and a lot of watch without feeling too bulky I highly recommend the Islander 03 or ones that are of similar size. I’m a former USAF Pararescueman and Commercial Diver that now drives a concrete mixer and involved in heavy activities all day long. A very comfortable watch that is great for everyday use or dressy occasions it is surely a watch that will not disappoint you no matter what your adventure is. I’m going to be buying the Isl-31 very soon.

5 of 5 Better than SKX September 5, 2020
Reviewer: NASA guy from SoCal, United States  
I never bought an SKX for a few reasons.  7S26 movement, steel bezel, printed dial, hardlex, and of course, many complaints of a misaligned chapter ring.  Seiko discontinued this model and then replaced it with Seiko5 lookalikes, and upgraded the movement, but took away the water resistance and still has the hardlex.  Enter Marc’s awesome creations.  Everything the SKX should’ve had, or what I would’ve modded an SKX with: 4R36 movement, better bezel, sapphire, applied markers, drilled lug holes, comfortable steel band.  And he has colors Seiko never had (or has) like light blue/white and panda.  I actually have yet to see a con other than I would like to see Marc do a SARB now that Seiko walked away from those models too.  It really is Seiko giving Marc a sales opportunity.  I have a 6.75” wrist and find the standard model to be perfect sized.  I usually wear 38mm -40mm but found lugtolug a much better way to size watches.  My ideal lugtolug is 44mm-46mm.
