Islander Automatic Field Watch with Nylon Weave Strap and an AR Sapphire Crystal #ISL-43

The Islander ISL-43 classic field watch design with a forest green 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-43 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 military green 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 Field Watch with green dial

    Posted by Andrew Braddick on Apr 20th 2021

    As a follower of Marc's youtube posts I have admired the Islander range. When I saw the field watch, I knew I wanted it. It compares really well to other similar types such as the Hamilton, but at a price I can afford. When it arrived, it exceeded my expectations. The size is perfect, the face design is top drawer. I'm very happy.

    A True Winner

    Posted by Tony Anthonisen on Apr 2nd 2021

    This is my third Islander. The other two are 38mm dive watches. While I truly like all three, this is the winner. Comfortable and extremely easy to read. The only thing that would make is better is also having a day complication. I put a Strapcode 20mm Super-O "Boyer" watch band with Straight Ends #SS202003B023 on it because I prefer a bracelet. A great watch in my favorite color. A tremendous high quality band. All for under $300 makes this a true winner. Thanks Marc!

    I haven't had it very long but my expectations for this watch have all been exceeded. I knew what I wanted in a field watch, I have two others that didn't meet the mark. I honestly would have paid more and been very happy with it given the thought and quality that's gone into it, and I look forward to putting it on my arm in the morning.

    Goes well with cammies

    Posted by Warren Peace on Mar 23rd 2021

    The reviews don't lie. This is the field watch I was looking for. The strap it comes with is nice, but I put it on a five-ring NATO and love it. It has a nice heft to it without being too heavy. The machining on the case and dial details are flawless. Lume is Super-Luminova and lives up to what you'd expect. Islander watches have outdone Seiko and Orient in the affordable-quality watch arena. From small details like smooth screw-down, signed crown to the sapphire crystal, this watch is more than you can expect from a sub-$200 watch or even a $300-400 watch for that matter.

    Very nice field watch

    Posted by Alexander on Mar 19th 2021

    I had been looking for a nice field watch for some time when i found this, ordered it and got it shipped to Europe in just 4 days! I am very happy with the watch, and wear it daily on a olive zulu strap. Keeps time good at about -10s per day, just about the right size for my 6 1/4" wrists.

    Great, and even better with a Strapcode Bracelet

    Posted by Tony Anthonisen on Mar 19th 2021

    I haven't had it long, but I have enough watches that I can give a very educated first impression. I would definitely buy it again. I prefer watches with bracelets, so I ordered a Strapcode 20mm Super-O "Boyer" watch band with Straight Ends #SS202003B023 along with my Islander ISL-43. I sent an email to Marc asking for bracelet advice, and he responded within a few hours. Typical for Long Island Watch. At 39mm, the ISL-43 wears well and is extremely comfortable with the Strapcode bracelet. Add to this the fact that my favorite color is green, and I have a definite winner on my wrist. This is my third Islander, and it is by far my favorite of the group. All are tremendous value for the money spent. The only thing better about my Islander divers is that they also have the day. Other than that, the Islander ISL-43 field watch is a total winner. Thanks Marc!

    Green Field Watch

    Posted by Kevin on Mar 13th 2021

    This watch rocks! The only thing I might change is the strap. Not that there is anything wrong with the strap (I like how it looks and fits), but I think I'll be using it in conditions much better suited to a NATO strap than a leather one.
