Islander Aviator Automatic Watch with Leather Strap and an Anti-Reflective Sapphire Crystal #ISL-15

The new Islander ISL-15 is an Aviator-Pilot style watch with a Type-B 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-15 features a Type-B dial with a large 60-minute scale and a small 12-hour scale in the center of the dial. 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-15 aviator watch features a screw down crown which provides a water resistance rating of 100 meters.

5 of 5 great everyday watch January 3, 2021
Reviewer: David N. from cheshire, MA United States  
good fit and finish. the lume is surprisingly very good. great water resistant. the movement accuracy is still settling in, but has been consistently running 5+/- seconds per day. i have been so pleased with this watch that i also purchased the A-dial variant. only very minor criticisms are the strap choice and modern jet engraving. these are only personal preferences, but would have preferred a vintage airplane or map engraving on the back with a riveted aviation strap.

5 of 5 Island Aviator #ISL-15 October 9, 2020
Reviewer: Volker Huenert from Auckland, Auckland New Zealand  
This is the second of the Aviator range (42 mm) I have purchased and I think these are very good value for money. I would wish that there is a Day/Date coming. Maybe the new range Aviators (40 mm) with the lollipop seconds hand will come with a NH36 movement to accommodate a Day/Date complication.
