Islander Ice Blue Waffle Dial Automatic Dive Watch with AR DD Sapphire Crystal, and Luminous Ceramic Bezel Insert #ISL-67

This new Islander dive watch has an 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-67 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 ice blue waffle dial has SuperLuminova on the hands and hour makers and the Island Watch logo is luminous. The 120-click uni-directional sub-style bezel has a scratch-resistant blue ceramic insert that is also treated with SuperLuminova for a maximum glow-in-the-dark experience when the lights go out.

The ice blue waffle 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.

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.

    Amazing watch

    Posted by Mike on Jul 28th 2021

    Awesome watch! Lost about 20 seconds but that’s after about two weeks of wearing it. You don’t normally get this type of accuracy from a watch at this price point. The ice blue waffle dial is absolutely stunning and photos simply don’t do it justice. Very happy with this watch so far. I’ve got my eye on Mark’s new line of Islander dress watches for my next purchase!

    Better than expected!

    Posted by Gregory on Jul 20th 2021

    I did not expect to like this watch so much. I didn't expect for the day/date wheels to align well. I didn't expect the double domed crystal to be subtle and grab my attention at the same time. I did not expect it to fit so nicely, even on a small wrist, and with a nicely milled clasp. As for accuracy, someone is clearly regulating the movement at the time of casing. I'm getting -3 sec/day for 14 hours of the day. Overnight, it does lose about 3 sec/hour--I think due to moving the day and date wheels, but I'm not a watchmaker. Overall, this blue timepiece far surpassed my expectations--the perfect grab-n-go for summer.

    ISL-67

    Beautiful watch!!!! I would give it 4.9 stars only because depending on lighting and angle it's hard to see the hands If they where black like on the ISL-28, definite a 5 rating Which BTW is on it's way to join my Islander collection!! ;-)

    Islander Ice Blue Waffle dial automatic dive watch

    Posted by Myron Silverman on Jul 7th 2021

    I'll start with the negative. Since I received this watch over two weeks ago, I have not taken it off. This has made my other watches jealous and now they're not speaking to me. Now for the positives. The watch is beautiful and though it is heavy, quite comfortable on my 6 1/2" wrist. . I appreciate the fact that the bracelet has screws making adjustments very easy. Watch bracelets with pins are a nightmare. Even repair professionals have a tough time with certain brands such as earlier Omega Speedmasters which have double pins in each link. The blue dial is stunning and a beautiful match to the blue bezel. The industrial looking bracelet matches perfectly with the case angles. I also appreciate the large crown making it easy to adjust. As far as accuracy, when I first received it, it was almost dead-on, but as it has settled in, it is now running between 2 and 3 seconds slow every 24 hours which is chronometer territory. This is quite good for a Seiko automatic as other, older Seiko automatics such as my orange and black Monsters are running 10-15 seconds slow per 24 hours. Service and delivery were excellent. I received the watch withing three days. I highly recommend this watch. Mark keep up the good work.

    Ice Blue

    Posted by Boyd on Jun 18th 2021

    I wore and collected Rolex watches for many years. After my wife passed I sip all of our watches and began collecting Seikos. I purchased an Islander a couple of years ago and was happily surprised at the quality and finish. Just got the Ice Blue Waffle Dial and can say the photos do not do it justice. Just a fantastic piece. LIWC is great to do business with.

    Islander ISL-67 Ice Blue Waffle Dial

    Posted by Sean Spence on Jun 15th 2021

    I have been wavering on getting this for a multitude of reasons and then my wife got this for me for Father's Day. I just got it today and WOW! The photographs do not do justice to the in-person beauty of this watch! I was a little afraid it might be too bulky on my wrist, but it is perfect. Marc is killing it with his Islander designs.

    Islander Ice Blue

    Posted by Steve P Kennelley on Jun 9th 2021

    The attention to detail, the band, the face, the whole watch is an "eye-catcher". Of my three Islander watches, the Ice Blue grabs people's attention. The common question is, "What kind of watch is that? (Ice-Blue) I'm quick to say you can find a quality watch for an affordable price at: www.longislandwatch.com Thanks Mark! Keep it going!

    Beautiful, hefty, wears well. Quality is for a watch well above this price range. Thank you so much for the attention to detail and the design.
