Islander White Dial Automatic Dive Watch with AR Double Dome Sapphire Crystal, and Luminous Ceramic Bezel Insert #ISL-29

This new Islander ISL-29 watch is a revised version of the ISL-12 diver. Due to your feedback, the 45mm case now has a brushed and polished 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. 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 crisp white 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.

Again, due to customer feedback, the new ISL-29 watch comes with a all solid link stainless steel bracelet that matches the brushed and polished case. It also features a robust milled scissor push-button deployant clasp with three position micro-adjustments. Note that the lug ends are drilled for easier strap or bracelet 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.

  • Movement: NH36 Automatic (self-winding, hand wind, hacks)

4 of 5 Love the Panda! December 28, 2020
Reviewer: Chris Gray from Midland, GA United States  
My wife just bought this watch for me for Christmas. I have been wanting an Islander for a long time and once I saw this one, I had to have it. It wears great on my 7 1/4" wrist. I love the fact the Islanders are such great quality at this price point. There is no better watch for $300. I really wanted a diver with a white dial, and I couldn't be happier. I haven't taken it off since I got it.
Quality bracelet and sturdy clasp. It really "snaps" into place. Sizing it was really easy too. I watched Mark's video on sizing, which explains the screws used for the links. Quite ingenious really.
My only complaint is the bezel is a little loose. It will move easily if you bump it. Really not a big deal, but I have to provide at least one con.

Great watch Mark! Keep it up!

5 of 5 Exceeded expectations September 18, 2020
Reviewer: Robert Black from Coalville, Leicestershire United Kingdom  
I absolutely love this watch, the finish and appearance is absolutely on the money. The dial with the sapphire glass is a joy to view. Would have preferred a little more resistance on turning the bezel, but crucially there is no back play. Fantastic value for money, I'm sure this won't be my last purchase with LIW. (It's not my first) Bravo Marc Bravo!

5 of 5 Excellent customer service. September 12, 2020
Reviewer: Jeff ONeil from Morgantown , WV United States  
The first of these watches arrived and had a slight issue with the stiffness of the screw down action of the  crown. Marc promptly replaced the watch and sent a return shipping label. Excellent prompt service. As to the watch, it is indeed a beautiful piece and I am quite happy with the time keeping and the look. Thank you Marc for the fine work.

5 of 5 Great watch, great value! September 7, 2020
Reviewer: sidspappy from San Antonio, TX United States  
Wanted a Long Island watch ever since the Islander came out,  but never decided to actually buy one. Finally, this model came out and really caught my eye, and I love it! Such a great value for the money with all of the upgrades over the Seikos that inspired the design. Quality is top notch, and it looks awesome! Thanks Mark for making such a wonderful product!
