Islander Aviator Automatic Watch with Leather Strap and an Anti-Reflective Sapphire Crystal #ISL-17

The new Islander ISL-17 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 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-17 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 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-17 aviator watch features a screw down crown which provides a water resistance rating of 100 meters.

5 of 5 Islander ISL-17 January 31, 2020
Reviewer: Dennis Miller from Valley Stream, NY United States  
This is my second Islander, the first being the ISL-02 which I absolutely adore. I was waiting and hoping for a B dial flieger and must say this does not disappoint. I was unsure how it would wear on my 6.25 inch  wrist but it wears well. The blue dial is beautiful and contrasts well with the tan (very thick) leather strap. As you would expect this thing glows like a torch. My only little complaint is that there is a staple on the keeper which causes a little discomfort but that was easily remedied by rotating it slightly so that the staple now resides on the side of the strap instead of underneath it. In all this is another home run from Long Island Watch. In terms of looks, specs, and price this pilots watch is hard to beat.
