Islander Hi-Beat Automatic Dress Watch with Robin's Egg Blue Dial, AR Sapphire Crystal #ISL-85
This Islander watch has a classic and tasteful 38mm x 11mm stainless steel case design. The sides are polished and the top has a fine brushed finish. The striking robin's egg blue color dial features applied silver hour markers filled with SuperLuminova. The sleek silver hands are also filled with SuperLuminova for viewing the time in the dark. An anti-reflective sapphire crystal guards against scratches and provides you with an exceptionally clear view of the time and date.
The ISL-85 is powered by a 24-jewel, Hi-Beat (28,800 bph) Miyota 9015 automatic movement with that is accurate and has predictable performance. You can hand wind it and it also hacks (seconds hand stops when crown is pulled out). Power reserve is rated at about 42 hours. The movement is visible via an exhibition window caseback. Usually dress watches only come with 30 to 50 meters of water resistance - the ISL-37 is rated at 100 meters and includes a screw-down crown.
The watch comes with an elegant stainless steel bracelet with a push-button deployant clasp for easy on and off. The bracelet links are solid as are the end-links. The lug width is 20mm. Sizing is made easier with the use of a screws instead the more common pins.

I am very happy to wear this watch. Every time I look at my wrist, I really appreciate the dial. The bracelet is also very comfortable. Everything is finished at a high level of advancement. The only thing I would change are my hands. They look cheaper than the rest in my eye. But hey - the watch is still a bargain at this price and being picky about the hands would be unfair. And additional information: the average rate of my piece for a week on my wrist is + 0.9s a day! This is crazy! I am very pleased and can definitely recommend this watch! (Marc's customer service is on a completely different level - you feel like a VIP)
The watch looks great, the color is even better on the metal, the lume is top notch. My wife stole it from me!
Beautiful piece. Quality and fair price. Very happpy with it!
It still surprises me how well put together the Islander watches are. This watch is extremely solid feeling, and the dial pops even more in person. Very happy with my purchase !
Another brilliant release for the Islander family. Solid spec, build quality and the dial colour is fantastic.
Really outstanding watch. The dial is something I can't get enough of really! Overall great craftsmanship, finish and materials. The only pet peeve is related to the clasp latch, which refuses to stay locked...
Just got my Robins Egg Blue Islander today and wore it to the studio to teach sax lessons. The color really pops and makes me smile every time I look at it. I have an 8.25" wrist and don't think it looks to small at all! Wanted to post some pictures, but don't seem to posses the know how :) If Mark comes out with a red, coral, or yellow one, I'm opening up my wallet again!
This is there best dress/sporty watch love the blue and no date dial the bracelet is outstanding and the clasp is almost flush to the bracelet an awesome homage to the gray market that are selling close to 20k bottom line a lot of watch for the money you will not be disappointed
This being my first Islander, I was happy i waited on the Robin's blue. It's absolutely stunning and beautiful to admire. Easily becoming one of my favorite watch in my collection.
