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 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

4 of 5 Bezel is a little loose. October 7, 2020
Reviewer: Austin Morris from Knoxville, TN United States  
On the ISL-12 watch the rotating bezel does not precisely align with the indicators.  It is just a little bit off, less than one click, and I am not sure if this is enough of a flaw to justify sending the watch back.  This flaw is barely noticeable.

5 of 5 Exactly what I was looking for... August 21, 2020
Reviewer: Steven Beisser from Gautier, MS United States  
I spent the past few weeks thoroughly researching dive watches to replace one that was damaged beyond repair.  Marc's videos were a great help and led me to the Islander brand.  When I saw this one, I couldn't resist.  The sandblasted finish gives it the look of the Air Force issue Tudor dive watch that served me through six Vietnam combat tours and on thorough Desert Storm where it was lost in action when I was injured.  Fit, finish and accuracy is outstanding.  The bezel seems a little too easy to turn but it's not a problem since I'm unable to dive anymore.  Love the watch and the service was outstanding.  I also bought the sandblasted Islander bracelet but the strap is perfect so I'll just keep the bracelet as a backup.  I wish I could give it and the company more than 5 stars.  Thank you!!

5 of 5 Exceptional Performance August 17, 2020
Reviewer: Rigidly Flexible from Tomball, TX United States  
I have waited six months to write a review.  I wanted to make sure this thing performed.  I am happy to report that it has exceeded my expectations.  It works and looks great.  I am a regular dual time zone user, so for that purpose it is excellent.  The lume is outstanding.  I need to see it in low light conditions and the lume hasn’t failed me once.  I find that mine has a tendency to gain about 8 seconds in a 24 hour period.  I am a frequent hacker, so no sweat.  I love the double dome AR crystal.  I have no scratches and I am anything but gentle.  I bought this to be a working watch and it is exactly that!  It has been what I needed it to be.  Thanks Long Island Watch!

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.
