The Islander ISL 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 jewel NH36 automatic that offers you the same reliable performance as later editions of this iconic dive watch. The red dial features white hands and hour markers coated with SuperLuminova for reading the time in the dark. The day and date window is in the familiar position. The lugs are drilled for bracelet to dive strap changes. Lug width is 20mm. The case size is 42mm diameter by 13mm thick. Finish is brushed and polished.
The crown and caseback are screw-in and the uni-directional rotating slightly concave bezel is a click with a luminous PIP. Water resistance is meters. This is a great timepiece. I put it on a red and black NOTO style strap and it is an eye-catcher. Lots of com-lements. This watch is, for the money, a great addition to any collection.
Great lume, keeps amazingly good time, rock solid bracelet and overall 'feel', this is a watch that I take swimming, hiking, and do all manner of outdoor yardwork without thinking twice. I run a distillery and on bottling days this thing gets knocked around quite a bit; no issues at all. Lastly, clearly this watch is modelled closely after the first generation Seiko monster. I like this one better if for no other reason than the bracelet has screw in pins and the original was pin and collar. One slight criticism: the bezel is not tight and tends to float with incidental contact.
Aside from that worth the money and I doubt any purchaser will be disappointed. Great watch. Love the feel, fit and finish for the price. Love the matte blood red and the pop of the white dracula's teeth-esque indices. Bracelet is nice, but tends to stick a bit to the skin or pull some hair, but I find myself still preferring this bracelet over other NATOs or leather straps in 20mm. Definitely a monster for the price - can't go wrong with a long island watch.
I am incredibly pleased with this watch. I hav 2 Seiko Monsters and the Islander takes it to the next level, from bracelet chrystal and movement. I am just waiting for other versions to be produced to get another. This is a lot of watch for the money and service is great at Long Island Watches. Just received my new ISL yesterday. Love the red dial. Bracelet was the easiest I've ever sized. Plus, you could never get a red dial monster, and this one is just gorgeous. I was really blown away by what you have done here with this Gen 1 reinterpretation.
I took away 1 star due to the very loose bezel and, for me, I liked the original bracelet taper to 18mm minus the weird link "step-down" section. This bracelet tapers from the lug "flare out" but only narrows to 20mm at the clasp net-zero taper. It is more substantial all around but not as comfortable to me.
I'm 13 and my Dad bought me this watch to celebrate my graduation from elementary school here in Peterborough, Ontario. We both share a love of watches. Red is also my favourite colour and I feel like I have received something that will become an heirloom. Amazing watch and I can't wait to try it out in the lakes and rivers! I am really happy with this watch. Even though it was deed to be a Seiko Monster homage, for me it ended up being the Oris Aquis 'cherry red' killer.
When this red Monster came along at a 12th the price and had more features I pulled the trigger. The ISL has a less cluttered dial and more closely mimics the cherry red Aquis's dial if you want that, but this red Monster had a 1mm smaller lug to lug than both the ISL and the Aquis 48mm and a better crown position for smaller wrists. I was a little hesitant to buy a 42mm watch but it wears closer to a 40mm, not at all obtrusive or oversized. The domed sapphire crystal is beautiful. The fit and finish is perfect. The bezel is buttery smooth with zero back play and it lines up perfectly with the seconds deations on the dial.
Add to this a solid, perfectly matched bracelet and you end up with the BEST Islander watch of them all,imho. The green lume contrasts beautiful with the muted-red dial. I own watches 5X the price of this watch but can say they hold no advantage over my Islander Monster. Marc,my hat is off to you. This watch is perfect.
