Islander Blue Automatic Dive Watch with AR Double-Dome Sapphire Crystal, and Luminous Dual-Time Ceramic Bezel Insert #ISL-27

This new Islander dive watch has a familiar angular case with a screw-down crown at 3:00. The diameter is 42mm with a thickness of 14mm. Tip to tip it is a very wearable 48mm (just 2mm more than the Islander ISL-01 and ISL-02). 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 ISL-27 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 makers and the Island Watch logo is luminous. The (smooth turning) bi-directional sub-style bezel has a scratch-resistant blue (
dual-time marked) ceramic insert that is also treated with SuperLuminova for a maximum glow-in-the-dark experience. You can use the 12-hour bezel to track a second time zone.

The dial has enhanced visibility due to the use of an anti-reflective double-dome sapphire crystal that also guards against scratches. It is a captivating crystal the really gives this watch a unique and distinctive look on your wrist.

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

NOTE: This Islander dive is compatible with aftermarket parts available at Island Watch (and elsewhere) for the SKX007 models, such as crystals, bezels, inserts, chapter rings, dials, and hands. However SKX bracelets will not fit, but Samurai bracelets will fit.

    Feels indestructible

    Posted by J Man on Mar 9th 2021

    The watch looks and feels great! The bezel is only unidirectional, which surprised me since the video and specs said it was a bidirectional bezel. I was also surprised the bezel does not line up properly. The finishing feels amazing and the price is reasonable. I definitely recommend to anyone looking for a watch that will attract attention but not too much attention.

    Excellent Samurai Alternative

    Posted by Philip A Perez on Mar 7th 2021

    If you are looking for an alternative for a Seiko Samurai, this is the best option. The different dimensions help it fit on my wrist better than a Samurai. The bracelet matches the watch's design better then a Samurai bracelet and fits nicely. The dial is beautiful and legible and the blue sunburst is amazing. The lume is exceptionally well done and you will not disappointed. Very well done watch

    ISL-27 Packed with Features

    Posted by L Lantz on Feb 4th 2021

    The Islander-27 is a fantastic timepiece. The features packed into this well made, great looking watch are such that one would expect of a $700 watch,not a sub $300 watch. Features include a double-domed sapphire crystal, screw-down crown and very reliable movement. The luminosity of the hands,hour markers on the dial and the bezel are very good. The stainless bracelet is good looking,comfortable and easily adjustable with the included jewelry 1.4mm screwdriver. I have watches that I paid just under $1000 for that don't not have the features in the ISL-27. I wholeheartedly would recommend this watch to my friends.

    Lotta features for not a lotta loot!

    Posted by Brian Russo on Nov 7th 2020

    If you add up all the features and modded a samurai, it would easily cost twice as much. Great value from a great micro-brand.

    bel prodotto,sono d'avvero soddisfatto;l'orologio è ben costruito, ha un' ottima presenza,ed un'ottima indossabilita' forse un piccolo difetto è rappresentato dalla ghiera che che gira in tutti e due i sensi di rotazione e tra l'altro senza scatti.per quanto riguarda il resto,se dovessi dare un punteggio darei 10 su 10 !-

    Decent quality but ridiculously bulky and heavy

    Posted by Watch Collector on Aug 31st 2020

    Been a watch collector for many, many years. After hearing that they discontinued the SKX, thought I'd give this a try as it met the build. The watch itself is decent quality. The bezel is great, the sapphire is clean and desirable. It keeps....ok time. The watch itself, in its entirety, is so heavy. Like, practical joke heavy. I'm used to wearing 42, 44, and even 45mm watches, but this thing has serious heft to an uncomfortable degree. I tried to wear it at home, and at work, and it is distracting how much it pushes uncomfortably on the wrist. I adjusted the band multiple times, but nothing helped. The 'O' bracelet is not the best quality or build. It's bulky and somewhat awkward, and almost sticky on the skin. I tried to clean it, but it pulls badly. The screw threads on the bracelet are...different. I unscrewed multiple links and had to use a pair of tweezers to extract the screw the rest of the way as they got consistently stuck on each link.
