Islander Automatic Dive Watch with Solid-Link Bracelet, AR Sapphire Crystal, Luminous Ceramic Bezel Insert #ISL-02

Island Watch would like to introduce you to the new Islander dive watch. You will immediately notice that is has a very familiar 43mm case with an offset screw-down crown at 4:00. Thickness is 14mm and tip to tip it is a very wearable 46mm (i.e. looks big, but doesn't wear big on your wrist). 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 BLACK dial has SuperLuminova on the hands and hour makers and the Island Watch logo is luminous under 12:00. The 120-click uni-directional bezel has a scratch-resistant black (
diver marked) ceramic insert that is also treated with SuperLuminova for a maximum glow-in-the-dark experience when lights go out. It is quite bright and long lasting.

The BLACK dial has enhanced visibility due to the use of an anti-reflective flat 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 dial is black.)

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

NOTE: The Islander dive and dual-time watch is compatible with aftermarket parts available at Island Watch (and elsewhere) for the SKX007 models, such as crystals, bezels, inserts, chapter rings, dials, hands, bracelets, etc.

    Islander Watch ISL-02

    Even better in person than the videos by Marc. Looks and feels like higher quality materials than Seiko too. Watch shipped very quick, took all of 5 min to remove a few links, set the time, date, and day. This is the upgrade you are looking for.

    Too Sharp

    Posted by Paul Morris on Jul 5th 2021

    The watch and bracelet were too sharp to wear. I was able to sand and polish to fix them. Otherwise, I would have given this watch a 5. The lume is great. The machining tolerances are very good. Now that it is fixed, It is the best watch I have ever owned.

    Excellent watch

    This has everything the 007 doesn’t have. Hand winding, hacking, killer lume, at a great price. Every time I buy an Islander watch, I end up giving it away to someone who likes the look and has never heard of Islander watches.

    Solid value, great design, trustworthy company, fast shipping, responsive customer service. No complaints. My favorite general purpose watch that does not come with the baggage of a 3000 dollar tag or omega.

    Very nice watch. Case had some sharp edges at the crown guards that had to be taken down with a buffer, other than that it's great. It has been keeping very accurate time has only been minus 23 seconds per week. The customer service has also been top notch.

    ISL02

    Posted by Erik on May 22nd 2021

    Overall impressive watch. Comparing this to skx's that I have owned: the ISL02 has a more consistent and better feeling crown threading, the ISL02 has a more solid feeling bracelet, the ISL has a more attractive crystal and bezel ring. The only drawback is my ISL has a relatively loose bezel - more loose than my skx's. The bezel migrates throughout the course of a day depending on what I am doing, when I say migrate I mean it gets bumped/rubbed and might move 2 or 3 minutes in a day. It's not necessarily a problem but I'd prefer it not be quite so loose. I generally use the bezel as a timer for daily activities such as cooking so migrating 3 minutes per day isn't a huge deal. It would be more of an issue if it had the dual time bezel and I were counting on it for telling time accurately on a multi day/week trip to a different time zone. Hard to give this thing a 4 star and I just can't honestly give it a 5; the bezel issue is my opinion only.

    So far, so good… A very nice-looking watch that is performing as expected and for a good price. It really is an SKX as I would have modified it.
