Description Technical Specs

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 Yellow islander January 25, 2020
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from NY United States  
Have several islander watch from LIW. Will add my experience with this yellow.
Had an issue with the watch the 2nd day of wearing it. Contacted LIW.  Response was quick.  Received a replacement within few days. Response/customer service first class in my book.
Noticed that the clasp on this replacement wasn't up to the same standard as my other islander. Took several times with some added effort to get it to lock. My other islander clasp was flawless.  But this didnt bother me as much because was planning to use a Nato strap. On a black Nato strap, also from LIW, this watched popped...a true stunner. Plus, to date, all my islanders seem to keep  pretty close accurate time.
Very happy with all my watches from LIW. If your on the fence about acquiring a islander watch I say..dont be.

5 of 5 Very Happy with this Yellow Beauty January 21, 2020
Reviewer: Robert S - Ozludo from MURRUMBEENA, VIC Australia  
I recommend this to anyone who wants a diver, desk diver or impeccable design.
The unbranded bracelet could be Strapcode. It is light, with no extension or halflink. There are 3 clasp adjustments. It fits my 9" wrist on the last extension :-) Solid endlinks fit very well.
The case is a faithful SKZ copy, with pierced lugs. The caseback lacks the familiar bump with the Great Wave logo. It wears like an SKX - perfectly.
The bezel is subtly different: slightly angular knurling. The action is smooth, no slip or back play. The insert is legible, with excellent lume.
Island fitted a signed crown- nice for folks who want one.
The face & handset are perfect. It shimmers in direct sunlight, appears matte otherwise, but always easy to read. Black edged hands are sensible and pop. Again, the lume is remarkable, & lasts 8+ hours. Differences to a Seiko dial include applied indices, the Island Watch logo, & a Marinemaster marker at 12 o'clock.
In 8 days it is 9.2s slow. Could not be happier.
