As a Seiko fanboy, I recently added the Islander ISL-05 to my collection, and it's exceeded all expectations. Crafted with precision and attention to detail, this timepiece is a testament to the evolution of dive watches. The first thing that caught my eye was the impeccable design. The 38mm case size strikes the perfect balance between functionality and elegance, making it suitable for both casual wear and underwater adventures. The solid-link bracelet, equipped with screw-in links, exudes durability and comfort, surpassing even the renowned SKX013 in solidity and craftsmanship. What truly sets the ISL-05 apart is its homage to the SKX013 with a plethora of enhancements. The inclusion of an AR-coated sapphire crystal not only ensures unparalleled scratch resistance but also adds a mesmerizing blue reflection, elevating the aesthetic appeal of the watch. The screw-down crown and links provide added security, ensuring peace of mind during every wear. One of the most striking features of the ISL-05 is its luminosity. The lume on this timepiece is nothing short of spectacular, offering bright and long-lasting illumination in low-light conditions. Whether exploring the depths of the ocean or simply admiring the watch in the dark, the luminous ceram hands and indices shine brilliantly, enhancing readability and charm. In conclusion, the Islander ISL-05 is a masterpiece of horological engineering. It seamlessly blends homage with innovation, offering enthusiasts the best of both worlds. From its robust construction to its stunning visuals and impeccable performance, this watch is a true gem in the world of dive watches. If you're seeking a timepiece that combines style, functionality, and reliability, look no further than the Islander ISL-05. It's not just a watch; it's a statement of excellence.l, thank you Marc!

A watch enthusiasts watch

What watch can compete with this?! This is the perfect, versatile, every day, sports watch. It's simple, functional, with a dash of quicky charm. It's a strap monster, a spec monster, and a watch mans watch. I love how it used the smaller handset from the original skx013. Even the new 38mm 5kx don't use those!

I was tired of the oversized, bulky divers on the market and this watch was exactly what I was looking for! Great size and fit on my 7in wrist. Incredibly comfortable and fun to look at! One week in and the NH36 movement is running 23 seconds slow...total. So that is what, 3+ seconds a day? Great job, Marc! Beautiful watch.

Richard L - 05/09/2023

Good value. Bezel install could be better.

Nice quality..good dial lume, great size and weight..great crystal Main issue: the inside of the bezel Insert is really sharp..didn’t realize it when I first ran my finger around it. Also one side sits a little higher than the other so 1 side is raised more than the other... Also the bezel numbers seem to have a reddish hue to them. Everything else is good..but the bezel insert is my only complaint..I thought it would be flush with the crystal but it just kind of sits on top unevenly even…

Great Dive watch

Fast service, great pricing and an even better watch! Island 38mm dive watches are fantastic and wear well on my small wrist. This is not my 1st LI watch nor will it be my last. LI watches have the quality of watches twice their price.

Long Island Watches is the best

LIW was responsive from the beginning, helped me navigate indecision, and as far as the watch goes, it’s one of their divers and it’s gorgeous. The jubilee bracelet is super deluxe, I love their choice of dial, hands, and crystal, and it’s keeping superb time after a week with it. They shipped first class mail and it got to the west coast in three days. Very happy!

This watch is amazing! As a bigger wrist kinda guy, I've recently wanted to try out smaller sized watches, and this one is absolutely perfect! It's so comfortable, looks great, and has the specs that put divers twice the price to shame. Definitely would buy again.

Everything I wanted my Seiko to be

Love it except I wish the lug length was shorter. It’s longer than the Seiko 013 which it’s supposed to be mimicking. Then we could see more of the beautiful bracelet. If you ever put a cyclops eye on it I’ll buy another one.

I own an Orient Kamazu and wanted something different for my 6.5 in wrist. I love the size and the design. The black is beautiful, and the crystal gives off that blue hue. This is my second Island watch. I find them a great value.

Smaller size, a lot of features.

This is an awesome watch. I enjoy that the numbers on the ring also glow in the dark. The smaller size is pretty awesome. I am glad I don't have to pay an arm and a leg for a baby SKX. I enjoy it a lot.

Great Value, Nice Upgrades, Perfect Sze

I love this watch. I happened upon it in my search for a used SKX013, as it is difficult to find watches in the styles I like that come in at 38mm or under. Really glad I got it. I won't have the concerns that can come with a used watch, and the sapphire crystal, ceramic bezel insert and upgraded movement are added values that really make a difference. Rock solid timekeeping, so far, too. More watches in this size, please!

Why Trust Verified Reviews?

Verified Reviews are real, authentic reviews collected from actual paying customers, using Shopper Approved's Verified Review Platform. When reviews are Verified by Shopper Approved, you know that you can trust them to make better buying decisions.

Unverified Reviews on the other hand, are reviews collected by Open Review platforms that allow anyone to leave a review, without any validation or proof of purchase. Unfortunately, most reviews you read online are Unverified Reviews, and can't be trusted.

As a consumer, here's how you can tell the difference:

Verified Reviews from Verified Review Platforms like Shopper Approved, have much higher review counts and higher overall Star ratings, because they attempt to collect reviews from every single paying customer.

Unverified Reviews from Open Review Platforms, tend to have much lower review counts and more negative Star ratings, because people with bad experiences are primarily those who leave reviews. This often creates a misleading, inaccurate portrayal of a companies true reputation.

So, when searching for Verified Reviews, look for the name you know you can trust. Shopper Approved.
