Islander Aviator Automatic Watch with Leather Strap and an Anti-Reflective Sapphire Crystal #ISL-16

The new Islander ISL-16 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 blue 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-16 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 brown 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-16 aviator watch features a screw down crown which provides a water resistance rating of 100 meters.

5 of 5 Service is awesome May 30, 2020
Reviewer: Dan Shyne from Selkirk, NY United States  
I am new to watches and researched the heck out of the models that I was looking at before I finally decided to buy from IslandWatch.  I decided on the fleiger-esque Islander Aviator.  I was excited when it arrived but, noticed that it was having issues.  I contacted IslandWatch on the weekend and received a note that a replacement watch was on the way with a prepaid return label.
Both arrived quickly and the problem was resolved quickly and easily!  Can't wait to purchase again from Island Watch!

5 of 5 Great watch, Great value May 18, 2020
Reviewer: Martyn Smith from Welwyn Garden City, N/A United Kingdom  
Very pleased with my blue aviator. This is a well thought through design that delivers everything I wanted in a flieger style watch and the NH35 movement is keeping good time.

5 of 5 Great value for a cool pilot watch! May 15, 2020
Reviewer: Michael Knapp of ‘Strap a Watch’ from Orange Park, FL United States  
These are so cool that I bought two, a black B model, and a blue A model. I showcased them on my YouTube channel ‘Strap a Watch,’ and made a Brown Alligator Strap for the blue one.: https://youtu.be/sWrR9C5Eabo. Marc is a great business owner and I love his YouTube channel too!

5 of 5 Best Watch Value Ever May 15, 2020
Reviewer: Chris K from Houston, TX United States  
When I first saw it, I knew Marc had designed the perfect watch for me.  It had everything I was looking for.  Truly the best watch value ever.  It keeps great time.  The sapphire crystal was a must.  42mm is perfect for my 7.5” wrist.  The band is thick and excellent.  Overall, a very satisfying experience.

5 of 5 Incredible watch, incredible bargain May 14, 2020
Reviewer: Mark Fisher from Highland Park, IL United States  
My Dad gave his old Rolex and I love the watch, but the idea of wearing something that expensive everyday doesn’t work for me.  I decided I wanted a solid basic automatic and this is a great choice.  The crystal, the screw down stem, the lovely thick leather band....all things I’d expect on a much more expensive watch.  Well done.
