Islander White Dial Automatic Dive Watch with AR Double Dome Sapphire Crystal, and 120-click Bezel #ISL-56

The Islander ISL-56 has the familiar look of an iconic dive watch which has been discontinued. The Islander version mimics the the original but, it has an all solid link bracelet that uses screws for sizing (instead of the very fussy pin and collar system). The upgraded bracelet also features a more robust milled deployant clasp with a dual-push button release. Another Islander upgrade is a double-dome sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective (inside only) coating that provides scratch protection and a clearer view of the dial and time.

The movement is a 24-jewel NH36 automatic that offers you the same reliable performance as later editions of this iconic dive watch. The snow white dial features ice blue hands and hour markers coated with SuperLuminova for reading the time in the dark. The day and date window is in the familiar 3:00 position.

The lugs are drilled for bracelet to dive strap changes. Lug width is 20mm. The case size is 42mm diameter by 13mm thick. 47mm tip to tip. Finish is brushed and polished. The crown and caseback are screw-in and the uni-directional rotating (slightly concave) bezel is a 120-click with a luminous PIP. Water resistance is 200 meters.

    A great watch with a ton of value added over the original that it homages. I love wearing it!

    Love this watch!

    This is the 2nd Islander watch I've purchased from Marc and I was not disappointed. Shipped right away and delivered on time and in good condition. Watch is running slow like maybe 2-3 seconds a day, it is definitely the most accurate automatic I own. Very pleased with this purchase and will certainly purchase from Marc again!

    Island White Dial - a Value Monster

    Posted by Paul R Sutphin on May 17th 2021

    This is a stunning watch that offers great value, great looks, and excellent construction. A total home run with the ice blue and white dial and overall look and finish that exceeds Seiko standards with, especially, the double dome sapphire crystal and quality bracelet. The lume is superb - can almost shave by it. Only thing holding me back from five stars is, as other reviewers have pointed out, that the bezel action should be improved and tightened. Mine does not skip, but to get it to line up (in that way all of us obsessives love) perfectly also takes a tiny fiddle -- but it will if coaxed. All in all, these are niggles regarding a great watch at a great price. Well done, Marc, and certain NOT to be my last Islander.

    Usual Islander excellence with Prospex spec for Seiko 5 price. Superb build quality and an excellent bracelet. Every Monster fan should take a close look at this.

    Islander Monster

    Posted by Steven Schoenfeld on May 12th 2021

    The watch looks absolutely cool, fits well, and is fun to wear. Here are things to keep in mind before ordering: 1. The watch has a lot of steel and is heavy with the steel bracelet (about 185 grams with sizing for my wrist) and 2. The bezel feels soft when rotated and moves a bit too easily, although there is no back play it is very easy to knock the bezel and it will move on you. If you don't mind these two attributes it is a great watch.

    Calling All Monster Fans

    Posted by Albert Orbinati on May 7th 2021

    I am a Seiko Monster collector and have to say how incredibly impressed I am with the Islander Monster. I purchased the white and red dial variants. The quality and value is through the roof. Also, with the prices of generations 1-3 Seiko Monsters starting to go through the roof, the prices on these are, frankly, a steal for what you're getting. The same, if not better, quality and value than the Seiko's. I especially appreciate the screw-in solid pins on the bracelet. The weight is right on too. Awesome product, Mark! Thank you.

    Return of the Monster....almost

    Posted by Corey Kelly on Apr 27th 2021

    I own several of the islander brand watches and have been very impressed with them. So naturally when I seen this one I had to place an order for it immediately. Upon receiving the watch today I set to sizing the bracelet and set the time, then put it on my wrist. The colors are amazing on this one, the design spot on for the older monsters which I had a second gen in orange dial. But like the other reviewer, I have one gripe and it’s the bezel. It feels as if there isn’t enough spring tension, it rotates awkwardly when gripping the sides, in fact it skips clicks and for a moment I almost thought this was a 60 click bezel. Turn it rapidly and it lets out a screech. I found if you applied just a bit of downward pressure, it catches all clicks, operates smoothly as it should, and no screeching. With that said, I’m no diver, and my original seiko monster was a tool watch and was beaten on as such. I plan to do the same with this one, so the bezel action issue isn’t a big one for me, but for others that are more picky this might be a problem for them. Overall I’m very happy with my purchase and may consider another color, if an orange dial happens to make its way into production I’m not sure I could resist. Hopefully the bezel issue is a simple fix in the future.
