Islander Blue Automatic Dive Watch with AR Double-Dome Sapphire Crystal, and Luminous Dual-Time Ceramic Bezel Insert #ISL-27

This new Islander dive watch has a familiar angular case with a screw-down crown at 3:00. The diameter is 42mm with a thickness of 14mm. Tip to tip it is a very wearable 48mm (just 2mm more than the Islander ISL-01 and ISL-02). 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 ISL-27 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 radiant sunburst blue dial has SuperLuminova on the hands and hour makers and the Island Watch logo is luminous. The (smooth turning) bi-directional sub-style bezel has a scratch-resistant blue (
dual-time marked) ceramic insert that is also treated with SuperLuminova for a maximum glow-in-the-dark experience. You can use the 12-hour bezel to track a second time zone.

The dial has enhanced visibility due to the use of an anti-reflective double-dome sapphire crystal that also guards against scratches. It is a captivating crystal the really gives this watch a unique and distinctive look on your wrist.

And, you get a beefy bracelet with solid links, solid end links and a robust milled scissor push-button flip-lock deployant clasp with three position micro-adjustment. For sizing the bracelet, screws are used for removing bracelet links instead of pins.

NOTE: This Islander dive is compatible with aftermarket parts available at Island Watch (and elsewhere) for the SKX007 models, such as crystals, bezels, inserts, chapter rings, dials, and hands. However SKX bracelets will not fit, but Samurai bracelets will fit.

5 of 5 Lotta features for not a lotta loot! November 7, 2020
Reviewer: Brian Russo from Joppa, MD United States  
If you add up all the features and modded a samurai, it would easily cost twice as much. Great value from a great micro-brand.

Reviewer: raimondo mirto from marmirolo, mantova Italy  
bel prodotto,sono d'avvero soddisfatto;l'orologio è ben costruito, ha un' ottima presenza,ed un'ottima indossabilita' forse un piccolo difetto è rappresentato dalla ghiera che che gira in tutti e due i sensi di rotazione e tra l'altro senza scatti.per quanto riguarda il resto,se dovessi dare un punteggio darei 10 su 10 !-

3 of 5 Decent quality but ridiculously bulky and heavy August 30, 2020
Reviewer: Watch Collector from United States  
Been a watch collector for many, many years.
After hearing that they discontinued the SKX, thought I'd give this a try as it met the build.
The watch itself is decent quality. The bezel is great, the sapphire is clean and desirable. It keeps....ok time.
The watch itself, in its entirety, is so heavy. Like, practical joke heavy. I'm used to wearing 42, 44, and even 45mm watches, but this thing has serious heft to an uncomfortable degree. I tried to wear it at home, and at work, and it is distracting how much it pushes uncomfortably on the wrist. I adjusted the band multiple times, but nothing helped. The 'O' bracelet  is not the best quality or build. It's bulky and somewhat awkward, and almost sticky on the skin. I tried to clean it, but it pulls badly.
The screw threads on the bracelet are...different. I unscrewed multiple links and had to use a pair of tweezers to extract the screw the rest of the way as they got consistently stuck on each link.
