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 More then pleased !!!! May 21, 2020
Reviewer: Michael Bertino from Winter Haven, FL United States  
Have not had my ISL-17 off my wrist since receiving it about 4 weeks ago. Thoroughly impressed with what Marc has brought to the affordable timepiece market. The case on this pilot, b-dial watch is finished so well..... with vertical brushed sides & lug ends opposing the radial brushing on the lug surfaces & bezel looks amazing. The box sapphire  crystal makes reading the dial perfectly legible from even the most severe angles & the lume is spectacular.  I was even impressed with the quality of the leather band.....thick yet supple, should wear a very long time & is extremely comfortable. What a tremendous value proposition !!!!!

Reviewer: Donald Volonte from Portland, OR United States  
Just like when I purchased my first Islander....this watch arrived quickly and was beautiful! The communication was top shelf and there were no surprises. I've got my eye on Islander #3...but which one will it be?!?

Reviewer: swift6912 from montreal, QC Canada  
You won't get better specs for a pilots watch at that price point!! Sapphire crystal, C3 superluminova, nh35 movement, 100m water resistance and signed crown. What else could you ask for?

5 of 5 Aviator ISL-17 May 7, 2020
Reviewer: Sean Spence from Westminster, CO United States  
So far this watch has been fantastic. The looks...I don't think the website photo does the real thing justice.
This is the first watch I've ever purchased that my wife and kids all liked.
I'm going to keep purchasing all my watches from Marc.

4 of 5 Another great watch by Marc but.... May 3, 2020
Reviewer: Ben S from San Fran Bay Area, CA United States  
Positives - don’t look for other Aviator watches. Sterile dial is awesome and Marc did a great job on blue dial where exhibits a bit of metallic blue texture that complimentary to a subtle blue AR coating on Sapphire glass. It is so much better in person. Photos / Videos won’t justify.

Improvements - crown is wobbly and shaky when you pulled it for adjustment on time and day/date. Hacking is great but spring of crown push/pull action doesn’t work well; had to push in-and-out several times to make the watch going again. Leather strap comes with this watch is ok - suggest to buy a nato or other quality leather bands to make this watch more expensive and valuable than the base model package.
