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 What an amazing watch! December 21, 2020
Reviewer: Aaron C. from Smithfield, NC United States  
I have been eyeing this watch for some time now. I must say, I thoroughly enjoy Apocalypse Now and seeing Martin Sheen wear a Seiko 6150, it made me want one. But after researching the price tag on a used one and seeing the price tag on a re-issue, I thought to myself, I’ll just wait.

Then I see the Islander 12 and it had all the upgrade features that I like and wanted and an exceptional price, best part it looked just like the 6150! I waited until Black Friday to purchase this amazing watch at an amazing price. Such fast shipping and I was simply in awe!

Pros:
-Long Battery Life (with just normal wear)
-Only about +2-3secs after a 2 day wear
-Easy band replacement
-Hack capability

Cons:
-Very easy to turn the bezel. Will turn if I bump into something
-Lume is’tt that bright for long use (goes to a typical Seiko brightness very quick. This isn’t a tritium insert like Luminox)
-Discontinued from LIW

Great product/fantastic company! Keep up the good work Mark!

4 of 5 Fun Watch October 30, 2020
Reviewer: Jonathan Stacke from Savage, MN United States  
I love this watch. I have been looking at a turtle for a long time. Once I saw this watch and what you get for the price. There was no question, I ordered the watch! The only very small thing I notices was. The bezel slips at the 9 position. This doesn't really bother me but, had to mention it. You will not regret buying this watch.

5 of 5 The Seiko Turtle that Seiko should have made October 11, 2020
Reviewer: William Yester from Pittsburgh, PA United States  
I had to mod my original Turtle to get close to what this watch offers as stock items. Double domed sapphire crystal with AR coating, lumed ceramic bezel and the lume is actually better than my Seiko. Automatic movement with hand winding and hacking. Just a fantastic value
