Islander Black Dial Automatic Dive Watch with AR Double-Dome Sapphire Crystal, and Luminous Sapphire Bezel Insert #ISL-65

Islander Black Dial Automatic Dive Watch with AR Double-Dome Sapphire Crystal, and Luminous Sapphire Bezel Insert #ISL-65

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-65 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 also luminous. The 120-click uni-directional sub-style bezel has a black and putty-grey (
diver marked) sapphire insert that is also treated with SuperLuminova for a maximum glow-in-the-dark experience when the lights go out.

The dial has enhanced visibility due to the use of an anti-reflective double-dome sapphire crystal that also guards against scratches. The crystal really gives this watch a unique and distinctive look on your wrist. The ISL-65 also is fitted with MM-Style hands with the red and white dotted seconds hand.

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.

    The watch is everything it purports to be in the Island Watch youtube videos. Great value.

    Really great and better than expected!

    My first order, took ~3 weeks to Vancouver Canada with $10 shipping. Love the watch, solid, feels great on my ~7.5" wrist, feels a tad smaller than my Samurai Save the Ocean. Bracelet is A+ and feels like a ~$100 Strapcode. Dial, hands and bezel look is more than I expected. Doesn't feel to heavy for me. Also seeing day date is good. Tried one of these new "MM200" Seiko's SPB187 lately but I prefer this one way more and for a fraction of the cost. Recommended.

    Great watch. Good size because my wrists are on the large size. love the Samurai style. This is my everyday watch because it is so tough and looks cool. The only problem i had was the bracelet. it was too small for my wrist. great quality.I bought a crater blue strap and love it. Thank You.

    My watch came yesterday - a day earlier than expected. It was easy to take out a couple of links with the supplied screwdriver to get the right size. That sapphire bezel really does glow - and the grey in the bezel insert looks nice. I like the handset too. These Samurai-ish watches come with great watch bands. There is no need to get another watch band. Its a chunky watch sure - but it looks great. And I trust Long Island Watch to make it right provided the watch has some flaw in the next year. That trust was big in my purchase. Matt
