Islander Automatic Dive Watch with Solid-Link Bracelet, AR Sapphire Crystal, Luminous Ceramic Bezel Insert #ISL-08

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 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 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 slight 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 Big-Time Quality! November 27, 2020
Reviewer: Luke Weeks from Greenville, TX United States  
I was looking for an SK type watch but really wanted a sapphire lens. This watch is so worth it! Dependable movement, incredibly strong mineral, solid links, its brushed in the right places and polished in the right places. The dial is simplified in a really nice way. The lume is really bright. Whichever color you get, this is a really high quality diver!

5 of 5 Outstanding value November 20, 2020
Reviewer: John Gray from MICHIGAN United States  
Great value is an understatement with this watch. I recently got a quote to have a skx007 modded with all these features and a yellow dial and it was over $800 for parts and labor. This watch tics all the boxes and at a very reasonable price and it has WAY better lume than those crappy China dials.

5 of 5 Extraordinary Watch-Fair Price November 16, 2020
Reviewer: Maurice Benzaquen from Thornhill, ON Canada  
Leave it to an experienced watch dealer to address all the concerns of the watch community about the seiko skx and make the watch that multi million dollar seiko corporation couldn't do.
From the movement to the crystal to the milled clasp to the drilled lugs-By far an extraordinary watch at a fair price

3 of 5 Excellent watch. Watch links a hassle September 18, 2020
Reviewer: Brent Saunders from West Sacramento, CA United States  
What's not to like about a bright yellow watch?  However, the screw pins are soft and easily bent. The included screwdriver fell apart before I was finished adjusting the bracelet.

However, once everything was adjusted, the watch is fine
