Islander Automatic Dive Watch with AR Double Dome Sapphire Crystal, and Luminous Ceramic Bezel Insert #ISL-12

Island Watch would like to introduce you to the new Islander dive watch. The 45mm case with an offset screw-down crown at 4:00 has been sandblasted for a non-reflective finish. Thickness is 16.5mm and tip to tip it is a very wearable 47mm (i.e. the watch does not wear big on your wrist). The watch has a 200 meter water resistance rating.

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 uni-directional coin-edge bezel has a scratch-resistant black (
diver marked) ceramic insert that is also treated with SuperLuminova for a maximum glow-in-the-dark experience in the dark. It is quite bright and long lasting with a good charge of bright light or sunshine. An LED flashlight with charge it very quickly.

The dial has enhanced visibility due to the use of an anti-reflective double-domed sapphire crystal that also guards against scratches. The anti-reflective coating is on the underside of the sapphire and it show a bluish hue at some viewing angles.

The ISL-12 watch comes on a two-piece black nylon strap with stainless steel keepers and buckle. Note that the lug ends are drilled for easier strap changes.

NOTE: The Islander dive and dual-time watch is compatible with aftermarket parts available at Island Watch (and elsewhere) for turtle models, such as crystals, bezels, inserts, chapter rings, dials, hands, bracelets, etc.

5 of 5 Great Watch! July 16, 2020
Reviewer: John Baranoski from Oriskany Falls, NY United States  
I got this last week and I’m very pleased with it. I have small wrists and this watch wears very well. The lume  is good and easy to read. The strap it came on is comfortable but for personal preference I put it on a rubber dive strap. The drilled thru lugs made this an easy swap. I would do business with this company again, and am already looking at an ISL-19.

4 of 5 So close to 5 starts (consider this a 4.5) May 19, 2020
Reviewer: G. Baker from Richmond, RI United States  
Excellent watch, as far as features and specs go. I love wearing it. The one thing a would like to see is a different strap. The one supplied almost feels cheap in comparison with everything else you're getting. If there's anyway to get this in the store with a decent rubber/silicone band, it would put it over the top. I tried it on a one piece NATO for a while, but the bulk of this watch plus being lifted off the wrist a bit just feels and looks a bit odd IMO. I understand that keeping them at $299 is a big deal, but I'm sure many people are inevitably spending the extra $20-50 on a rubber strap anyways. After throwing on a new band, it's likely become my new beach/athletic watch.

5 of 5 This is the Watch Seiko should've made! May 12, 2020
Reviewer: Honu from Mililani, HI United States  
I took a chance buying the ISL-12, and I'm glad I did. It wears great on my skinny wrist. Easily serviceable, hand winding, hacking, double dome sapphire crystal and a great price makes it unbeatable. It actually shipped on time! I can't wait to order "Your Watch, Your Way," once this COVID-19 stuff is over. Just buy it, you won't be disappointed. It's a keeper.
