Islander Automatic Field Watch with Nylon Weave Strap and an AR Sapphire Crystal #ISL-40

The Islander ISL-40 classic field watch design with a crisp white dial. The dial has a 12-hour scale and a smaller 24-hour scale for military time. The hour and minute hands are filled with SuperLuminova as are the 5-minute markers around the dial. The brushed stainless steel case is a very wearable 39mm in diameter and it is 12mm thick. Lug to lug (or tip to tip) measurement is 48.5mm. The crown is a signed screw-down type that enables a better water resistance rating of 100-meters.

Inside the case is an NH36A, 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. You can view the movement via an exhibition-window (screw-down) caseback.

The ISL-40 has date displayed viewed at 3:00 on the dial. 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 khaki color woven nylon strap with leather backing and a signed stainless steel buckle. The strap comes with quick-release pins so you can change up the look with another strap without the need for any special tools. Just use your index finger.

    Islander #ISL-40 Automatic Field Watch

    Posted by Charles on Jul 21st 2021

    This is a very well made field watch. For a watch with sapphire crystals on front and back and a screw down crown, the price is amazing. Also, containing an automatic movement that's easy to repair or replace is another plus. Island Watch was prompt in sending the ISL-40 after my order was placed and it was quickly delivered. Again, a very good wristwatch and a very good buying experience.

    This was my first purchase of an Islander watch, but it will not be my last. This has become my go to watch in the last month since I purchased it. The quality is outstanding. My only complaint is the band that it comes with, but that is more of a style choice and not anything to do with the band itself.

    I am very happy with this watch. I specially like it because of my vision is not as good as it used to be. I hope that you will keep on making affordable watches with all the extras that watch fanatics like, hacking, hand winding, sapphire crystals, screw down crown etc etc. The only thing bad is not really that bad I know it happens. It is that I did found a hair about 1/8 inch in size even a little smaller than that inside the back of the watch, it was stuck to the crystal. It is something that you can only see with a magnifying glass. But like I was saying it is not a big deal it is just constructive criticism I still love you watches and your youtube channel, perhaps in the future I will buy another watch from you they are truly great quality.

    Islander field watch

    Posted by Samuel on Feb 19th 2021

    The watch itself is nice. Looks good and has great features at reasonable price. However, the strap is awful. It is very stiff and uncomfortable. The holes do not line up well for my 6.75" wrist. Best feature of the strap is that it is quick release so that it can be easily replaced.

    Excellent watch. Great value.

    I already have enough dive watches in my collection and not being a diver, I have no use for the bezel. I wanted to add a waterproof field watch with a white dial and now I'm glad I didn't spring for the Hamilton. This one is perfect as it has every feature I was looking for, sapphire crystal, screw-down crown, exhibition case back. The dial is very easy to read and I am especially happy with the minute hand that extends over the minute indices making it very easy to set the time exactly. I'm not one to expect super accuracy from a budget mechanical watch but I got lucky with this one. It keeps better time than any other watch in my collection, including my one luxurywatch. I also like the size, a welcome change from all my 40mm plus watches. The strap is very well made. The only problem I have is with the choice of color for the white dial watch. I put a Strapcode Hexad style bracelet on mine and it looks and wears great. Great watch at an even better price.

    My first watch, did a lot of research going in. Finally pulled the trigger on this one. I really like it, and have gotten a lot of compliments in just a couple of weeks. Big fan of the color of the luminescence and the simplistic design. Feels nice when wearing it, not too heavy. Only complaint I actually have is that the leather band is a little stiff. It's loosened up a little with wear. And the lume, while it looks great when fully charged, doesn't seem to last very long. It's a great watch and highly recommended besides, especially for a smaller 6.25" wrist like mine. If necessary, I would definitely buy from longislandwatch in the future.

    So much value for the money.

    Posted by Cory Checketts on Feb 11th 2021

    In my opinion, this field watch is better than the Hamilton Khaki field watch I used to own. Sure, it doesn't have a "Swiss" movement but I don't really care. What sold me on this watch was its water resistance, its sapphire crystal, its lug-to-lug width and its reliable Seiko movement. Not to mention that Mark and company make an amazing watch. I've been wearing mine non-stop since it arrived. I swapped out the strap with a silicone Barton strap for comfort. This watch wears great on my 7" wrist. I don't realize I'm wearing it most of the time. And the lume is on par with any Seiko diver. Again, this is a ton of watch for a little money.

    I love the watch but the case was scratched on side at 0100. It is for work so I did not want to return it.

    My Daily Piece!

    Posted by Edward Ahn on Feb 6th 2021

    I am new to watches, and starting off my watch "collection" with this beautiful automatic was a great decision. Wonderfully put together, clean and elegant, with a slight subdued look to it, I love this watch and wear it pretty much every day now. Looking forward to getting more watches soon! Thanks Marc!
