This new Islander dive watch has a familiar 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-65 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 black dial has SuperLuminova on the hands and hour makers and the Island Watch logo is also luminous. The 120-click uni-directional sub-style bezel has a black and putty-grey (diver marked) sapphire insert that is also treated with SuperLuminova for a maximum glow-in-the-dark experience when the lights go out.
The 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. The ISL-65 also is fitted with MM-Style hands with the red and white dotted seconds hand.
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.
