Islander Automatic Field Watch with Nylon Weave Strap and an AR Sapphire Crystal #ISL-42

The Islander ISL-42 classic field watch design with a blue 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 12-hour numbers and 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-42 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 woven grey 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.

    I have owned many field watches over the years, starting with my first watch, an LL Bean Hamilton Khaki. The Islander ISL-42 second gen. is everything that I have always wanted in a field watch. I have it on a 2mm thick Milanese strap and it is perfect. Thanks Marc!

    Wow what an incredible watch for the price! This is now my daily go to even for my DIY projects around the house. This watch has only lost several seconds after 10 days!! Amazing for the price.

    Can't be beat for quality and value

    Just received my Islander field watch and could not be happier with the purchase. Arrived earlier than expected and pre-sales customer experience was top notch. The watch is solid, and the dial is beautiful. I wish the strap were a little longer but I can remedy that pretty easily thanks to the quick release strap.. This timepiece exceeds my expectations and will be me everyday piece due to it's build quality and easy read dial and size.

    Automatic Field Watch

    Really wanted to buy a watch from Marc because I enjoy his videos, and his efforts to sell nice watches at reasonable prices. I like the color and layout of this watch. The nice strap is a bonus. I’m even starting to like the logo!

    Islander field watch

    Posted by Ben on Mar 7th 2021

    I had a Seiko SKA 727 kinetic I always wore for travel, but it wasn't a daily-worn watch, and I couldn't keep the battery charged. So I sold it and picked up the Islander field watch with black dial, because it has a very similar look to the SKA727. Good size at 39mm and 12mm thick. NH35 automatic movement runs about -3 seconds a day.

    found this watch after considering several others. I love the way it looks. Of course it also operates perfectly! Thanks from Texas.

    Ok for a Islander

    Posted by Michael Henry on Feb 13th 2021

    I love Islander watches. This one is my least favorite of the 3 I own. It runs very fast so I have to adjust time at least every couple of days. Not crazy about the strap as it has let to break in and is very stiff. The blue face looked better to me on video then in person.

    The perfect everyday watch!

    Posted by West Coast Corporate Pilot on Feb 7th 2021

    I absolutely love the watch and it's become my everyday watch. The watch was shipped quickly and as advertised the service is excellent. Add everything together and I'll be buying watches from Long Island Watches in the near future. As an oldercorporate pilot I don't need anything fancy these days. The airplane gives me everything I need. But, the simplicity of this watch and big numbers makes it super easy to see and reference in flight plus it looks nice with any corporate uniform. Well done and thank you!
