Islander Black DLC Automatic Field Watch with Luminous Dial, AR Sapphire Crystal #ISL-83

This is the Islander ISL-83 classic field watch design with a luminous dial (SuperLuminova). The dial has a 12-hour scale and a smaller 24-hour scale for military time. The hour and minute hands are black as well as the 12-hour numbers and markers around the dial. You will note that the dial has excellent visibility due to the use of an anti-reflective sapphire crystal that also guards against scratches. The black DLC stainless steel case is a very wearable 39mm in diameter and it is 12mm thick. Lug to lug (or tip to tip) measurement is 48.5mm. The crown is a signed screw-down type that enables a better water resistance rating of 100-meters.

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. You can view the movement via an exhibition-window (screw-down) caseback.

This model comes with a beige nylon weave strap with leather backing and a signed DLC stainless steel buckle. The strap comes with quick-release pins so you can change up the look with another strap without the need for any special tools. Just use your index finger. Watch weight is 70 grams.

    Islander DLC automattic field watch

    Posted by Anthony Smith on Sep 17th 2021

    For years I wore a Timex Expedition field watch because I loved the look of it. When looking at it, I always wished it was of better quality. When I saw this, I was immediately impressed. And I think the price is more than fair. Sapphire glass, screw-down crown, automattic with a display case back... incredible value for money. The supplied strap is pretty good, but very stiff until you break it in. But it is a strap monster, so that is no issue at all. Oh, it is beautifully regulated and keeps time well with excellent power reserve. I bought well.

    ISL-83, Just a great field watch

    Posted by Gregory Leake on Sep 13th 2021

    DLC coating, beautiful lume dial, sapphire crystal on both sides with AR coating on the face, reliable Seiko movement and a screw-down crown. What's not to like.

    Best Value

    Posted by Matthew on Sep 13th 2021

    This is my 3rd watch and I am very happy with it. I wasn’t a fan of the strap so I bought the nato style Grey a khaki and that just made this watch so much better. This is a great company and they make really nice watches. I would definitely buy it again if it gets misplaced or stolen. Thanks Long Island!!

    This is my first non-quartz watch, and I picked the ISL-83 because of the value you get for the price. The strap is not great, but that's a $20 fix. Mine is keeping very accurate time at less that +/- 5 sec per day.

    Fun watch, helps to satiate the lume novelty

    Posted by Eric on Sep 10th 2021

    Don't wear this to a cinema matinee, for if you come from a sunny location to a dark one, the face glows like a flashlight and the usher will tell you to turn off your watch. With so much lume, this watch face is white during the day, and green at night- which is a fun transition. Rolling the strap between your fingers helps to break it in quickly, and a lit match will remove any fraying. Movement runs -4 secs/day. Yes, the amount of lume is gratuitous, but if you have a sense of humor, it's a fun watch to wear. I'm very happy with it.

    The dial pops!

    Posted by Francois Lavoie on Sep 10th 2021

    Truly a “Lume” watch with the full Lume on the dial and the contrast with the markers and hands make this one pop-out. I smile every time I see it in my watch box, it’s that good looking with the black DLC coating … however, it’s only a 4 star b/c of that strap. Difficult to manipulate and very tight fit with the holes. Not the best I’ve seen. I figure Marc did this by design … this one’s a “strap monster” for sure ;-)

    Way too expensive for what its worth

    Posted by Sulman Shah on Sep 9th 2021

    I love island watch, they have great service and I love to support American businesses, I feel like this watch could be less expensive; it was a little disappointing. I will still continue purchases watches from here.

    What I was waiting for

    Posted by Ross on Sep 8th 2021

    Very well built for a field watch at any price. The attention to detail is there on this watch as it is for all Islander watches. A full lume field watch in this classic style is uncommon. Marc and crew knocked it out of the park.
