Islander Automatic Watch with Leather Strap and an AR Dome Sapphire Crystal #ISL-53

The new Islander ISL-53 brings back the style of popular watch that is no longer available. The cosmetic differences are subtle but noticeable.The case is a very wearable 40mm in diameter and it is 13mm thick. Lug to lug (or tip to tip) measurement is 47.5mm. The crown is a signed screw-down type that enables a better water resistance rating of 100-meters.

Inside the case is an NH35, 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 ISL-53 has date displayed viewed at 3:00 on the dial.

The black dial has distinctive oversize hour makers like many WWII pilot watches. It is very easy to view the time at a glance.
The hour hand, minute hand, and dial markings are all treated with C3 SuperLuminova. The seconds hand is painted orange for higher visibility and the lume dot has been made part of the pointer. You will note that the dial has excellent visibility due to the use of an anti-reflective dome sapphire crystal that also guards against scratches.

This model comes with a black leather strap with matching stitching and a signed stainless steel buckle. You can change up the look with a military-style nylon strap and any of our leather straps. The lug width is 20mm. 120mm x 75mm strap size.

5 of 5 Islander ISL-53 January 4, 2021
Reviewer: Joel L. from Lansdale , PA United States  
I can’t get over how much I’m enjoying this watch. It’s clean simple design is very satisfying and wearable. What I’m enjoying the most thus far is the crystal. It’s my first AR coating and I can’t get over how effective it is. From any angle it’s crystal (sorry) clear.
   Winding the seiko movement is buttery smooth and the crown is big enough but not too big.
   This watch literally puts a smile on my face. Enjoy.

5 of 5 Gift for my son January 1, 2021
Reviewer: Mike from Hastings, MN United States  
My son saw my ISL-54 after I had modded it. He liked it so much that I was compelled to get him one for Christmas, and mod it for him. Only difference he wanted the date complication. He absolutely loves it!

5 of 5 Great Watch and Service, Lousy USPS December 30, 2020
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Locust Grove, VA United States  
Once I finally got my watch, (it took the USPS 4 weeks to deliver it) I was really impressed by the build quality and attractiveness. You can tell that this watch was created by a "Watch guy", someone who loves watches and knows what makes for a great watch. This was my 1st Islander but it won't be my last!

5 of 5 Great watch! December 25, 2020
Reviewer: Paul Gilmore from Caledonia , IL United States  
I bought the ISL-53 with date.  High quality watch.  Nice heft to it and wears great.  The stock strap is good but didn’t fit this watch for me.  I put that strap on a different watch.  I paired this watch with a grey sailcloth and it’s perfect.   Great lume and easy to read.
