Islander Manhasset Question

Hey everyone,

I've got my eye on that cream dial Islander Manhasset and I was wondering- did anyone pick it up?  How does it feel on the wrist?  How is the bracelet?  It just seems too good to be true ....

LIW bracelets are usually about the same quality as Strapcode bracelets. I have two of the Jubilee style which are great, but I'm not so crazy about the Oyster style with the female end links. I believe that's the one that comes on the cream Manhasset. I just don't care for the look of it on the Northport, nothing really wrong with it (except the crappy fit of the end links). The clasp that comes on the Manhasset is the same as my Jubilees, also, which in my opinion is better than the upgraded clasp that he offers on some models. I don't have experience with the Manhasset, but the 38mm Brookville wears very nicely, and I'm sure it will too. The cream dial is the one I would choose as well, looks very classy. 👌

I love this little watch myself, having posted a poll recently as to weather people thought I should get my Dad a black dial or Cream dial.

I have a couple of other Island Watch's and my wife has a 38 mm hi beat dress watch which is really nice to wear. I believe that for the money they are a great buy and certain of the modules are really attractive to me . The Manhasset being one of the best and I really like the 36 mm size . I am going to buy a black dial for my Dad ( ended up asking him his preference) but I shall get myself a cream dial too.👍
