Islander Silver Dial Automatic Dive Watch with AR Double-Dome Sapphire Crystal, and Luminous Sapphire Bezel Insert #ISL-28

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-28 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 silver dial has SuperLuminova on the hands and hour makers and the black Island Watch logo is under 12:00. The 120-click uni-directional sub-style bezel has an eye-catching putty-grey and orange (
diver marked) sapphire insert that is also treated with SuperLuminova for a maximum glow-in-the-dark experience when the lights go out.

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 A Real Looker! December 25, 2020
Reviewer: Rob Johnson from Haymarket, VA United States  
The ISL -28 is an excellent addition to my collection.  The silver dial is easy to read in all lighting conditions; the sapphire bezel inset compliments the dial nicely.   The watch is solidly made and sits comfortably on my 7 inch wrist. As always, LIW is quality company with nice watches at a great price.

4 of 5 Great automatic December 25, 2020
Reviewer: T Weightman from Korea  
I purchased the ISL-28 as my first automatic watch. It arrived ahead of schedule and here are my thoughts:
Pros:
Solid and sturdy construction
Polished and brushed exterior highlights contours
AR coating and domed sapphire crystal are beautiful
Bezel and lumed hands glow well
Tastefully signed on face, crown, and caseback
Precision screwdriver included for links
Links are faceted and not the all-too-common rounded
Excellent bezel action
Cons:
Case thickness does not fit easily under a shirt cuff
Bracelet screws were difficult to retighten after removing links (head was softer than screwdriver)
Fold over clasp was not signed
Consider:
This is a hefty watch for all-day wear
Lume requires consistent charging under bright light (e.g. sun or 500 lumen light)
Instructions are not included in written form
Overall, this is a great watch at this price point, and I look forward to many years of enjoyment.
