Islander 38mm Automatic Dive Watch with Solid-Link Bracelet, AR Sapphire Crystal, and Luminous Sapphire Bezel Insert #ISL-21

Island Watch would like to introduce you to the new Islander dive watch.
You will immediately notice that is has a very familiar 38mm case with an offset screw-down crown at 4:00. Thickness is 13mm and tip to tip it is a very wearable 44.5mm. 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 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 green dial has SuperLuminova on the hands and hour makers and the Island Watch logo is black under 12:00. The 120-click uni-directional bezel has a scratch-resistant green sapphire
insert that is also treated with SuperLuminova for a maximum glow-in-the-dark experience when 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. The anti-reflective coating is on the underside of the sapphire and it imparts a bluish hue at some viewing angles. The ISL-21 green dial model is fitted with a set of distinctive MM-style hands with the red dot-white dot seconds hand. This model also features a distinctive coin-edge bezel.

Upgraded: The bracelet has solid links, and solid end links. Screws are now used for adjustments (instead of pins) for sizing the bracelet. It now also features a robust milled scissor push-button deployant clasp with three position micro-adjustment. Also, The crown is now signed with the Island Watch logo.

NOTE: The Islander dive and dual-time watch is compatible with aftermarket parts available at Island Watch (and elsewhere) for the SKX013 models, such as crystals, bezels, inserts, chapter rings, dials, hands, bracelets, etc.

    The Best!!! Value diver full stop!

    Posted by Marc Giorgiantonio on May 31st 2021

    I replaced the sapphire insert with a ceramic one for the look I wanted. It was good before but perfect after. The case finishing and chapter ring alignment is punching way above its price point. I don’t know if Mark has the movements regulated but mine is plus... nil? Basically unnoticeable. I’m satisfied to the point where I can say this is purchase one of many to come.

    38mm Islander is 10/10 and looks great!

    Posted by Ticking all the boxes with style on Mar 26th 2021

    My "Mini Hulk" arrived yesterday. It arrived early, tracking was good. 0 complaints about delivery and ordering process, v smooth. Watch arrived with additional jubilee bracelet. Drilled lugs made it a dream swapping out straps/bracelets, v nice. I only had 1 question about the watch: should the winding mechanism disengage on screwing in the crown? (No, keeps winding btw) I received an answer within a couple of hours, v nice communication. Love my green Islander. Specs can't be ignored at this price, v good value.

    Seiko Killer!

    Posted by Brian on Mar 8th 2021

    This watch packs a huge punch for the price. You're getting a watch with much nicer parts than a Seiko in the same price range. Everything lines up, accuracy is decent and the lume is pretty good. You are also getting great customer service when you buy from this company. Some negatives: It seems like you can kind of see the adhesive strip through the sapphire bezel insert. Not a huge deal but it is noticeable. The watch also came with a big scratch across one of the endlinks BUT they are sending a replacement, so no big deal. Overall, this is a great watch that is currently stealing my attention away from a few more expensive pieces in my collection. I am quite satisfied with this purchase.

    Great Green

    Posted by Jon Meyer on Mar 7th 2021

    This watch is really good! Green is my favorite color and this is my favorite shade of green. The Marine Master hands are a welcome change from the SKX arrow hands. The red dot is a nice pop of color. I wish the bracelet didn't taper so much (20mm to 16mm). A taper to 18mm would've been better, I think. Marc, if you see this, PLEASE make this in the 43mm size!

    Fantastic Watch Beautiful Color

    Posted by David Hardy on Feb 11th 2021

    When I saw the green dial of the ISL-21 online I knew I had to have one and it immediately became one of my favorites when I opened the box. Keep up the good work Mark, I love your products.

    Customer Satisfaction

    Posted by Lance on Jan 17th 2021

    Ordered the Islander ISL-21 for my wife. The ordering process was simple and delivery was right on time. The watch is beautiful and accurate and most important, she loves it. Exceptional value for money in the Islander line form from my experience. Thanks for all you do Mark!

    5 star

    Posted by Frederick Zirkel on Jan 11th 2021

    The watch is a great buy. The concern I have relates to the really slow day/date change at midnight. This feature is rarely reviewed on youtube. Its like no one works late at night, lol. Mark, here is my question, how many minutes does the day and date hands need to fully change? My two night experience is at least 45 minutes. If you answer me I will change my rating from one to a five. If not no more purchases and you can go about your business.

    Islander reigns supreme

    Posted by Daniel Ward on Jan 11th 2021

    I recently purchased the emerald green islander isl-21 and let me tell you... this thing is amazing. You will not find a better diver for $300. The lume is incredible, the power reserve is incredible. The attention to detail is there. If you're looking for the highest quality timepiece for your dollar, look no further. Buy an islander.
