Islander Black DLC Aviator Automatic Watch with Leather Strap and an Anti-Reflective Sapphire Crystal #ISL-46

The new Islander ISL-46 is an Aviator-Pilot style watch with a Type-A dial. The black DLC 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-46 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 orange.
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-46 aviator watch features a screw down crown which provides a water resistance rating of 100 meters.

5 of 5 A lot of watch for the money December 28, 2020
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Wisconsin  
Extremely happy with this watch. It has the feel of something far more expensive. Clean design, good size, quality strap, excellent lume, sapphire crystal, and is keeping perfect time so far.
I would love to see a special edition with a small F-14 silhouette at 6 o'clock and a titanium case.
As always, fantastic service and communication. Thanks so much!

5 of 5 Islander#46 The Stealth Aviator October 30, 2020
Reviewer: Dr. Spin. from South Australia  
Awesome what Marc is doing, it’s a great response to seiko messing with Seiko 5 line
I was probably never going to get into watch modding or get what I wanted “off the shelf” without going to more expensive european brands
This replaces my SNZG13 as a daily beater because I couldn’t live without manual winding on my daily auto.
I prefer bracelets, but the thick premium leather strap is working well for me and offers interesting possibilities for wrist positioning that I can’t get with a bracelet.
I find the sterile dial a little strange.
Fantastic looking watch, awesome value, sapphire crystal, DLC stainless steel case, lavishly lumed A type  aviator dial with a very legible date in place of the 3.
The bright orange second hand looking good at 6Hz
adds the spark of colour you need to draw your attention to the watch.
And then he nearly gives them away, $199, what?

Reviewer: Nicholas Herrera from Calimesa, CA United States  
My second Islander Aviator and I'm loving the color scheme of this one. Fast shipping as usual. You can never go wrong with an Islander.
