Such is the similarity, that the Islander can also accept the bounty of available SKX007 aftermarket parts. Similarly, the case and bracelet feature a great mix of polished and brushed surfaces, which all play nicely in the light and give the watch a refined appearance. Here’s what you’re now getting that you didn’t get with a Seiko SKX: Still has a screw down crown, while looks are a little more refined than an SKX. The only slight negative I can find with the bracelet, is the clasp is not signed. LIVE ON KICKSTARTER! 43mm diameter, 14mm thickness, 46mm lug-to-lug. And very happy with the buy.

The SII NH36 is a fantastic workhorse with 21,600vph, 3Hz, 24 jewel automatic movement with a day/date complication, 41hr power reserve, self winding and of course hacking. Everything about the bracelet is spot on, solid links & end links, screw pins for resizing and a very nice milled, dual push button, flip-lock deployant clasp. It was created to fill the void left by the departed SKX—a void that wasn’t exactly filled by the new Seiko 5 models, which are lacking the aquatic prowess that was loved by SKX devotees. Mark is very attentive and scrupulously honest.

Contacted long island watch and was palmed off to contact the manufacturer who has taken 6 months to send me the wrong pieces despite photo's and me using a set of vernier to make sure I measured correctly.Don't buy from long island as they don't care once you have paid and certainly don't buy a Squale buy a Yema or a brand that cares.Still haven't actually worn it!

Incredible service by Marc, I will be buying another Islander ASAP!

One of the reasons I’ve never owned an SKX is that I was always drawn to Orient’s budget divers.

Thanks Marc, we will be back again, for sure. In addition to the tonneau case being an unusual choice for a new microbrand, the way it is constructed is also something quite uncommon. I am as or more comfortable buying from them as I am from any other watch site. There is a borderless day/date window at the 3 o’clock position too, which looks great… and what’s this…? Style is timeless and affordable. The Islander has a water resistance rating of 200m, thanks to the screw down caseback and obviously the screw down crown also aids with the 200m WR rating.
