Islander Aviator Automatic Watch with Leather Strap and an Anti-Reflective Sapphire Crystal #ISL-48

The new Islander ISL-48 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 dial has been treated with C3 SuperLuminova for a great glow-in-the-dark experience. The sword-style hands and hour makers are black. The dial is unbranded like many of the vintage WWII offerings. The Islander ISL-48 features a Type-B dial with a clearly marked 60-minute scale and Arabic numerals except at 12:00 where a triangle with dots is used.
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-48 aviator watch features a screw down crown which provides a water resistance rating of 100 meters.

5 of 5 Outstanding Aviator Watch October 10, 2020
Reviewer: AGC from Colleyville, TX United States  
I purchased the Islander Aviator watch as a follow up to my collection of Fortis and other aviation watches. I am extremely pleased with the Islander's performance. The face lume is extraordinarily bright and long lasting. The face markings and hands are sharp. The finish is very tasteful. I complemented the watch with a striped nylon band. The Island Aviator provides outstanding value for money and is a classic addition to any collection.
