Islander Automatic Dive Watch with Solid-Link Bracelet, AR Sapphire Crystal, Luminous Ceramic Bezel Insert #ISL-08

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 yellow dial has SuperLuminova on the hands and hour makers and the Island Watch logo is black 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 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 slight bluish hue at some viewing angles.

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.

    Love the yellow dial on the watch and the fantastic build quality. The Islander watches checks lot of boxes and are a great value. I own a few and will certainly add more to the collection.

    First Islander watch, won't be my last

    Posted by CG Reich on Jun 10th 2021

    I really love this watch. As other reviewer's have said, the yellow color is very unique in person. It almost has a metallic undertone to it that makes it change hue in varying light. The lume is astonishing on this reference with the ceramic insert, combined with the dial it is a real star at night. Bezel click is very satisfying and lines up great. Nice upgraded movement and sapphire for the price point. Very surprised with the quality of the bracelet, I honestly prefer it to my strapcode J-style on another watch. All in all this is a knockout watch, and for the price point it's unbelievable. Finally, great customer service through and through.

    Yellow Islander 43mm

    Posted by Chase Beasley on May 28th 2021

    Especially concidering the price/value, this is a 5 Star Product. The barely metallic yellow dial is incredible. It is not a sunburst nor a shiny metallic but almost a powdercoat micro-flake metallic giving a slightly iridescent depth but still yeilds a tremendous full-on true yellow. The fit and finish of the hardware is better than OEM. Really great yellow watch for the money. Buy it. Enjoy it. Customer service during and post sale was excellent. Immediate shipping. Professional post-sale support received from Marc. For non-fastidious or non-obsessive buyers, this is a no-brainer, stop reading now. ----Highly Recommend For the fastidious and obsessive types, a few notes. While an excellently priced ready-to-go mod, the watch comes lacking in a few minor ways. First, the hands do not match the indices under most lighting conditions. The indices are stark-white while the in-fill on the hands are a bit green. Combined with the choice for a black handset, the hands seem to be dim relative to the rest of the very wonderfully bright "pop" of the dial. It is a minor difference but present nonetheless. The lume performance is okay. Lume glow colors match perfectly but the dial fades quickly. The bracelet is above average; good fit and finish. However, I would have preferred the seemingly more refined "3D" endlink design seen on current strapcode/miltat oysters.

    Fantastic Islander ISL-08 Yellow 43mm

    Posted by Ronald Kelly on May 18th 2021

    I saw Marc review this watch on his YouTube channel and put it on my wish list. This is my 1st purchase from Long Island Watch and my 1st Islander and I absolutely love the watch. The yellow dial really pops and is really super legible. Keeps good time and the SuperLuminova is great. Really glad I went with the 43mm vs the 38mm for my 7 1/2inch wrist. The only issue I had was removing one of the screws on the bracelet to resize. It had a slight bend in it. Probably during manufacturing. complaints and would highly recommend. I'll probably purchase another with a different dial color. You get a lot for your money on the Islander watches. Great quality.

    First Island watch purchase and couldn’t be more pleased. The color is great, nice clean yellow, keeps time and is a solid build.
