Islander White Dial Automatic Dive Watch with Solid-Link Bracelet, AR Sapphire Crystal, Luminous Ceramic Bezel Insert #ISL-35

The popular Islander dive watch is now available with a cool white dial. Like the ISL-02, the new ISL-35 features a 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 white dial has SuperLuminova on the hands and hour makers. 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 the lights go down. It is quite bright and long lasting.

The white 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 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.

    Clean and casual look. I love wearing it. Easy to size. Really nice weight. Lume is good. Clasp is a little hard to operate the first few days… but in a week or so, it becomes dialed in and works well. I highly recommend this watch.

    Solid Watch

    Posted by Zach on Aug 6th 2021

    I have owned many mechanical watches and I think 5 Seiko’s, this watch has to be the best value for money out of my whole collection. I have taken this watch sea kayaking, hiking in mountains, and to the desert. It hasn’t once let me down. I liked the look of the white-dial Omega Seamaster and figured this was a way to get a similar look at less than 1/10 the cost. I have a Seiko SARB035, but this is my first true white dial watch. I am rating it 4/5 for a few reasons: Good: -Timing keeping. This is a bit of luck with unregulated base Seiko movements, but on the 56 days I have recorded via a watch tracker app, I am getting +0.4 seconds a day. That included wearing the watch hiking, running, and sleeping. -Sapphire crystal and ceramic bezel are amazing and look new despite bumping the watch several times against metal and door frames. -Bezel and chapter ring is aligned. -Case fit and finish is great for the price. -Lume is good, not as good as my Seiko Turtle, but better than any other watch I have. It glows a bit whiter in color than Seiko’s green lume, but it still lasts throughout the night. In lowlight conditions it appears as if it has lesser lume than it does due to the reduced contrast of lighter lume against a stark-white dial. Not Perfect: -Hand alignment is off. When the minute hand is at the 12 o’clock, the hour hand is a bit forward of the hour marker. Not too much so, but clearly noticeable at 6 and 12 o’clock. -The bezel mechanism is too easy to turn and I often bump it out of alignment just in daily use which makes it a bit unreliable for timing. It doesn’t get bumped too much, generally no more than 1-2 minutes. But it happens several times throughout the day and is annoying even when not timing. -When I received the watch there seemed to be some gunk in the bezel mechanism that would make it “stick” at two points when rotating the diver bezel. I watched the watch under the faucet a few times and that fixed this problem. -Some play in the movement when setting the time, but it doesn’t affect timekeeping. -I personally find the watch a bit hard to read sometimes in the predawn light if the lume wasn’t charged well the night before (time outside does this the best) as the black hands don’t reflect minimal ambient light as well as the golden hands on my Seiko Turtle do. In closing, this is a great watch for the price. I am likely going to pick up an ISL-04 or the new watch Mark has been teasing with the H-Link bracelet next. I have discovered that the stark white dial of this watch is not quite my preferred choice, but I am happy to have something else in the collection as variety is the spice of life.

    Very nice watch for the price.

    I always wanted a custom modded Seiko SKX007 watch. Look no further. This watch has all the great features you need. Hand winding and hacking are great bonus as well. Grab one while you guys can.

    This was my first purchase from Long Island and will not be the last. This white dialed diver is beautiful. The bracelet was a snap to size. So far the accuracy is really good, after 3 weeks it is averaging -6 spd. Really good quality and for the price it can't be beat.

    It's Stunning

    Posted by JGO on May 12th 2021

    I've been wanting a white dial /black bezel driver for a while. This watch is perfect. It's been a month now and none of my other watches are getting any wrist time anymore. I don't even feel bad about it because I smile every time I look at my wrist.

    SKX but...

    Posted by Mitch S. on May 11th 2021

    For me this is an SKX but better (I have a JDM SKX007). I am happy to have white dial in my watch box. As advertised this has sapphire, ceramic, hacking & hand winding. The bracelet is good, no need to replace it. Great value for the money. Quick delivery. This is my first watch from Island Watch, and I am pleased. I'm located on the opposite coast, on Vancouver Island.

    Exceeded high expectations!

    Posted by Walter Ramirez on Apr 14th 2021

    I am absolutely thrilled with this watch. It has such a sweet, almost flawless design. I rate it 15 out 10. I am hooked and want more of them! The white face is versatile with a variety of nato and other watch bands. This is a go-to watch for everyday wearing or one to collect. Highly recommend. Thank you, and I hope to be a repeat buyer real soon!

    I received the white dial ISL-35 about a week ago. For me, the stark white dial is absolutely stunning. I love it and couldn't find one I liked for even 2 or 3 times the price. I've purchased 3 watches from LIW and I'm very pleased with the service. Maybe the blue waffle dial diver is next, if it comes back in stock.
