Islander Aviator Automatic Watch with Leather Strap and an Anti-Reflective Sapphire Crystal #ISL-14

The new Islander ISL-14 is an Aviator-Pilot style watch with a Type-A dial. The case is a very wearable 42mm in diameter and it is just 12mm thick. Lug to lug (or tip to tip) measurement is 48mm. The screw-in case back has the silhouette of an F-14 fighter jet etched into it. The iconic F-14 was manufactured by the Grumman company on Long Island and it was featured in the movie Top Gun.

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 NH35 also has date wheel viewed at 3:00 on the dial.

The black dial has SuperLuminova on the sword-style hands and hour makers. The dial is unbranded like many of the vintage WWII offerings. The Islander ISL-14 features a Type-A dial with a clearly marked 60-minute scale and Arabic numerals except at 12:00 where a triangle with dots is used. The hour hand, minute hand, and dial markings are all treated with C3 SuperLuminova. The seconds hand is painted white.
You will note that the dial has excellent visibility due to the use of an anti-reflective sapphire crystal that also guards against scratches.

This model comes with a black leather strap with matching stitching. The buckle is signed (i.e. Islander logo). You can change up the look with a military-style nylon strap and any of our leather straps. The lug width is 22mm.

The ISL-14 aviator watch features a screw down crown which provides a water resistance rating of 100 meters.

5 of 5 An Instant Classic - well done LIW June 4, 2020
Reviewer: Nathan from Australia  
This piece has to be seen in the flesh, top notch quality that we know comes from Marc and Long Island watch. The A-type dial has great readability and the watch absolutely exceeded my expectations. I only wish I bought the B-dial as well!
Thank you Marc

5 of 5 Aesthetically pleasing w/a optimized exp. May 11, 2020
Reviewer: B from KS United States  
Aviation is in my blood. This piece is well thought out, intentional and the design is spacious. A clean easy to read daily beater. W/o branding or characters you enjoy the unadulterated experience.  A must for any rotation.

5 of 5 Island aviator type a May 5, 2020
Reviewer: Kyle Brown from South point, OH United States  
Great watch. Very solid feeling and the movement is quite nice. The only upgrades I would suggest would be more notches on the strap and make both keepers floating. But that would just bring it from a 9 to a 9.5 or ten. It's a great watch. I say buy it. Btw some type of serial number system to identify them in the future and to add collectibility could be good.

5 of 5 Sweet little Pilot watch May 4, 2020
Reviewer: Chris Allende from Lincoln, NE United States  
Im really enjoying the Islander Pilot, I feel the watch itself is great and really well made. My only nitpicks would be with the strap. 1) Thekeeper thats closest to the buckle, is too close in my opinion. It makes the strap hard to get in and out of the keep. 2) The buckle seems cheap to me, especially the latch of the buckle. It does go with the overall elegance, but a little more attention could be paid to that. **Overall its a great timepiece and I would def recommend it if youre in the market for a Pilot style watch.**
