Islander Automatic Dive Watch with Bracelet, Double-Domed AR Sapphire Crystal, and Embossed Ceramic Bezel Insert #ISL-18

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 radiant, sunburst blue dial has SuperLuminova on the hands and hour markers and the Island Watch logo is luminous under 12:00. The 120-click uni-directional bezel has an embossed (
diver marked) ceramic insert that matches up perfectly with the blue dial. The bezel has a marine-style edge that is easy to grip and rotate.

The dial has great visibility due to the use of an eye-catching double domed, anti-reflective sapphire crystal that also guards against scratches. This model comes with an all solid-link bracelet with a deployant clasp. It is easily adjustable to fit most all wrist sizes.

NOTE: The Islander dive and dual-time watch is compatible with aftermarket parts available at Island Watch (and elsewhere) for the SKX007 (and 009) models, such as crystals, bezels, inserts, chapter rings, dials, hands, bracelets, etc.

    Islander 18

    Posted by Steven Horvath on Apr 16th 2021

    I discovered Long Island Watches initially by watching Mark's Youtube video's then visiting his website to look at his product line and others that he offers. I love watches, always have. I just got into Seiko automatics in the past couple of months after seeing the value and availability they offer over the Rolex and Tudor world. I guess until 2-3 months ago I wouldn't give much though to non swiss automatics, then I got my first two Seiko's. After a few more Seiko's (mostly in the $850-$1900 CDN price range) I decided to buy the Islander 18. I guess it's not a myth, what a beautiful watch. I love it so much I ordered the Islander 74. Now we need Mark to setup shop in

    I am writing to express my gratitude to Longislandwatch for such a beautifully stunning watch that really surprised me and I must say surpassed my expectations when I unboxed it. I was very excited by the outstanding intensity in the of BLUE face and the over quality of its design and attention to detail. The bezel alignment was spot on and the luminosity was excellent!. This watch is an exceptional value and the order was delivered very quickly. Thank you for the fine job and great quality! Much appreciated

    This is such a great watch, I’m not sure whether I will need another. Looks great on my 7 1/4” wrist, has all the features I want including strong lume, keeps excellent time. You can’t beat this for the price.

    Finally my watch arrived in Germany. Due to normal postal service it took quite a month including customs clearence since my home town postal office informed me about its arrival. That's quite a common time span for default oversea delivery momentarily through Covid-19 situation. Now to the watch itself. It's a very precious looking dive watch. Totally worth its price, with its 200m water resistance, sapphire glas and its ceramic bezel. Just shortend the solid bracelet before a bit. Very comfortable to wear and nice looking watch. I'm so happy to have bought this nice and affordable peace of horology at Marks shop.

    My Precious!

    Sit back this is a long one....This is my first Islander Watch. I am a typical Seiko fanboy who sticks to the conservative models (or) to put it bluntly I am not a flashy guy. Well, for some reason, this watch has been calling me ever since I first saw it on the website. I kept going back and forth trying to decide if it was too flashy for me. Then I happened to see Mark's video on watch donts and said "heck with everyone's opinion, I'm going for this flashy little jewel. Placed the order and waited for it to arrive. Over the next week was not sure this watch was for me. Well it just arrived and I am in love. I typically wear turtles so this feels and looks smaller but I got used to it quickly. The quality is incredible and it is a Lumapalooza in the dark. What a light show. I can't stop looking at this watch. I feel like Gollum from the Lord of the Rings. I can't wait to wear this one out. Thank you Mark for making this watch possible! back to "My precious" :-)

    Fantastic watch

    Posted by Robert F on Feb 21st 2021

    Awesome piece for the money. Looks and feels very well made. Lume is fantastic. The blue dial looks even better in person, especially in sunlight. The bezel was slightly misaligned but thanks to watch and learn videos I was able to fix it myself. I don't even really like the Yachtmaster but this watch just calls to me. They should name it the Chuffmaster.
