Islander Automatic Dive Watch with AR Double Dome Sapphire Crystal, and Luminous Ceramic Bezel Insert #ISL-13

Island Watch would like to introduce you to the new Islander dive watch. The DLC black 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. It is quite bright and long lasting with a good charge of bright light or sunshine. An LED flashlight can charge it very quickly. Note: The seconds hand now has a luminous tip.

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-13 watch comes on a two-piece black nylon strap with black DLC 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 watch models, such as crystals, bezels, inserts, chapter rings, dials, hands, bracelets, etc.

5 of 5 Better than the pictures October 22, 2020
Reviewer: Frank Black from South of Heaven  
This watch far exceeds my expectations. Any upgrade I would want is already done. Great quality and look. No OCD triggering alignment issues at all. Marc has won me over, this is the start of an Islander collection. The customer service also excellent. Marc was patient and helpful with another purchase, he shared his knowledge and helped me find a piece that was perfect for my needs. The watch is beautiful, the lime is bright, DLC is flawless, the band is better quality than expected and the crown & bezel function smoothly. Great watch, great service.

4 of 5 Great DLC Turtle Watch October 2, 2020
Reviewer: Simon CROOKE from Duffy, ACT Australia  
I think that the bezel is way to loose and soft.  It moves with ease if I just tap it with my finger.
Also, the bezel alignment is just off but no worse than a Seiko. The hour hand is slightly misaligned as well but not egregiously so (picky watch enthusiast).  The domed crystal is awesome and the look of the watch on the wrist is very stealthy.  The watch is also surprisingly light.  The finish and quality of the watch is fantastic.  The watch is losing 18 sec per day, which is fair performance from this Seiko movement.  The shipping time and communications were also satisfactory given the global situation.  Overall, I'm satisfied with this watch.

5 of 5 Amazing DLC Watch Value September 24, 2020
Reviewer: Chuy from Tucson, AZ United States  
This watch is an amazing value and looks and feels amazing on all size wrists big and small. The classic turtle design is timeless and so comfortable to wear all day and night. The accuracy out of the box is amazing, and lume is equal to any seiko diver and even more enhanced with the fully lumed bezel. The domed sapphire crystal just puts it over the top. An amazing value that ticks all of the boxes.

1 of 5 Slow Shipping September 11, 2020
Reviewer: Bryan McDevitt from Mesa, AZ United States  
I have purchased 3 watches from You thus far and I feel the quality is there; however, I choose 2 day shipping and it took much longer this time. I asked You to respect my purchase by refunding My shipping and You have refused which makes Your company SubPar. No more watches for Me.  That over a couple of Dollars, but I am a man of principle.
