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 Stealthy Islander September 18, 2020
Reviewer: Scot from Oregon  
ISL-46 checked a lot of boxes for me. Pilot and field watches are my favorites and I had been interested to try one with black dlc case. Also, I had hesitated a long time between the Laco 39mm versus Laco 42mm sizes. I worried the latter would be too big and that the 18mm lugs of the former would bother me. This Islander was a great way get a better handle on the size coupled with a watch that is mostly all dial. The lug to lug measurement is shorter than the 42mm Laco, too. I love it--it fits my wrist well, everything seems perfectly proportioned (hands to dial, date window, size of numerals). I also prefer the Seiko movement versus the Miyota in the Lacos. I am glad I waited for the right one!
