Islander Dual-Time Automatic Dive Watch with AR Double Dome Sapphire Crystal, and Luminous Ceramic Bezel Insert #ISL-31

Islander Dual-Time Automatic Dive Watch with AR Double Dome Sapphire Crystal, and Luminous Ceramic Bezel Insert #ISL-31

This new Islander ISL-31 watch is a revised version of the ISL-12 diver. Due to your feedback, the 45mm case now has a brushed and polished finish. Thickness is 16.5mm and tip to tip it is a very wearable 47mm (i.e. the watch does not wear big on your wrist). The watch has a 200 meter water resistance rating.

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 vibrant blue dial has SuperLuminova on the hands and hour makers and the Island Watch logo is luminous under 12:00. The 120-click uni-directional coin-edge bezel has a scratch-resistant black (
dual time marked) ceramic insert that is also treated with SuperLuminova for a maximum glow-in-the-dark experience in the dark. It is quite bright and long lasting with a good charge of bright light or sunshine. An LED flashlight with charge it very quickly.

The blue dial has enhanced visibility due to the use of an anti-reflective double-domed sapphire crystal that also guards against scratches. The anti-reflective coating is on the underside of the sapphire and it show a bluish hue at some viewing angles.

Again, due to customer feedback, the new ISL-31 watch comes with a all solid link stainless steel bracelet that matches the brushed and polished case. It also features a robust milled scissor push-button deployant clasp with three position micro-adjustments. Note that the lug ends are drilled for easier strap or bracelet changes.

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

    Quality and Value with Style

    Posted by Ray J on Jun 18th 2021

    I've owned the Island Watch #ISL-31 for several weeks now and remain as excited as when I unboxed it. When I ordered it I was concerned about the overall size and especially the advertised thickness. In reality, the watch sits comfortably on my 7 1/2" wrist and doesn't appear nearly as tall as advertised. The case shape has a lot to do with that. It looks sleek and not chunky. The O-style bracelet is excellent and I only needed to remove 2 links. That was easy due to the screws. The blue looks brighter and more "alive" in person. It has attracted a lot of favorable comments. Everything about the watch is as good as or better than I expected. I am a fan of coin-edge bezels and this one really sparkles. The lume is better than any of my other watches. Before this, I only looked at my watch to tell the time. I find myself glancing at this one frequently throughout the day just to admire the looks. I can't recommend this watch highly enough!

    Much Sleeker Than You Might Think

    Posted by Ray Jaegers on Jun 14th 2021

    I've had my ISL-31 for a few weeks now and the excitement hasn't waned. I mentioned the sleekness of the watch in my initial review but I think it bears repeating. When I read the specifications for the watch, I was a bit concerned about the advertised thickness of 16.5mm. I was afraid the watch would sit too high on my wrist. Just want to report that my fears were unfounded. The profile of the watch and the way it wears give it a "perceived thickness" of just over 11mm on my wrist. I don't count the domed sapphire crystal, and others won't either. The watch case has an elegant bevel on the edge that I think helps it to look slimmer than other watches that have flat sides such as the Samurai. So if you are concerned about 16.5mm being too thick, you needn't be.

    Fantastic watch regardless of the price. Beautiful blue dial and gorgeous bezel. Case and bracelet really nice too. Love it. Nothing cheap about this affordable timepiece. My first islander but probably not my last!

    Blown Away

    Posted by Ray J on Jun 2nd 2021

    I had heard all about the exceptional service at LIW, but now I have first-hand experience. First, I had a technical question which was answered promptly by Marc himself. I placed my order for ISL-31 early enough in the day for it to make it out to USPS. I was immediately given a tracking number link to the USPS website. All I had to do was make one click and it told me exactly what the status of my shipment was. I elected to be alerted when the watch arrived at stopping points along the way. The anticipation was awesome. Even with the holiday, the watch got to me in 3 days. I call that outstanding. And the watch itself is everything I expected and more. I have a 7 1/2" wrist and this watch literally fits me perfectly. It is a hefty watch yet so comfortable. It just wraps around the wrist perfectly. No pressure points, nothing. And the dial? Those that say pictures don't do it justice are right. They don't. It pops! Also, don't let the advertised thickness bother you. Some of that is the sapphire crystal and some is the case back, which is domed. The profile of the watch is much sleeker than I expected. I wanted a watch that didn't look like everyone else's and this one doesn't. Finally, the crown is robust, very easy to unscrew and the setting functions crisp. Looking forward to many years with this beauty. Thanks Marc, and thanks LIW.

    I waited for some time to get this piece. One reason or another I delayed. My biggest question to myself is... WHY? This watch is absolutely phenomenal. The photos do not do it justice at all. Comfortable wear, outstanding looks... this one will get a tremendous amount of wrist time...

    ISL-31 is a beaut!!!!

    Posted by Alex L on May 5th 2021

    This watch is excellent and looks even better in person then is does in pictures. The blue dial just pops in the sunlight. Why would you ever buy a Turtle when something like this exists?

    Islander 44mm blue dial wet black bezel

    Posted by Jesse diaz on Apr 20th 2021

    I love this watch. The dial has a rich bright blue color and the ceramic bezel insert gives it a very attractive wet black color. I would rather buy an islander than most Seiko watches because islander watcher are made with better materials at half the price.

    I own a couple Seiko dive watches, a Bulova, a Citizen, I even bought a few top of the line” homage watches and the Islander 31 is my nicest watch. The finish is as nice as all of them, the movement is more accurate than all the others. Has not lost a whole minute since December when I got it, which comes out to LESS than half second per day. The bezel turns easier than my skx if I had to name a fault. I’d like it tighter. The lume is almost on par with my new seiko, better than all others. The band is better than all of them. I don’t care for the gmt bezel insert so I’m going to order a dive insert. Can’t say enough good things. Planning on another soon. Oh and I love that the AR coating isn’t obnoxious blue like all the other import homages. It’s clear or subtle blue. Very beautiful.
