Islander 43mm Automatic Dive Watch with Sunburst Gold Dial and Maroon Accents #ISL-149
This 43mm automatic dive watch has a color scheme reminiscent of the 1970's Pogue dial made famous on the Seiko 6139. Here we have a sunburst gold dial with maroon accents on the applied markers. The hour and minute hand are done in polished silver, and an accent seconds hand matches the indices.
Very similar to our ISL-127, the ISL-149 brings the same look in a slightly larger case. Besides being larger in size, the link bracelet is equipped with negative endlinks that make it easier to wear on smaller wrists - this allows the bracelet to curve easily to your wrist, instead of sticking out (which increases apparent size). The bracelet is solid link, solid endlink and is sized with screws. It is a 22mm lug width, and tapers to 18mm at the clasp.
Inside beats a Seiko NH36 movement, with the day and date mechanics removed so there is no "ghost-click". It supports hand winding and hacking, with a 40 hour power reserve. For a retro design element we also decided to have the custom oversized signed Islander logo crown at the 3:00 position without crown guards. This allows for easy access to set the time and date as well as manually winding the NH35 movement. To time your dives, or your laundry, the watch is equipped with a 120 click unidirectional ratcheting coin-edge bezel. Atop the bezel is sapphire bezel insert done in a red/blue pattern.
For low light visibility the hands, markers and bezel insert are all done in Super-LumiNova C3 lume. This is a lume that glows green when the lights go down. The dial is protected by a flat sapphire crystal with anti-reflective blue coating on the underside.
This watch is compatible with SKX007 parts such as bracelets, bezels, bezel inserts, casebacks, hands, crystals, dials and chapter rings.
The caseback is the new Islander embossed pattern.
