Islander Aviator Automatic Watch with Leather Strap and an Anti-Reflective Sapphire Crystal #ISL-17

The new Islander ISL-17 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 blue 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-17 features a Type-B dial with a large 60-minute scale and a small 12-hour scale in the center of the dial. The hour hand, minute hand, and dial markings are all treated with C3 SuperLuminova. The seconds hand is painted white.
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 brown 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-17 aviator watch features a screw down crown which provides a water resistance rating of 100 meters.

    Islander Aviator #ISL-17

    Posted by Jim Ferry on Jun 17th 2021

    I have to say Marc did a great job with the Islander line. I did not have a B dial aviator watch and grabbed this on sale. It has seen the most wrist time and the leather band is breaking and was better than expected. I think my next Islander will be a diver.

    Great Automatic Pilot watch

    Posted by Flavio Villanustre on Jun 11th 2021

    This is a great automatic pilot watch with a type B flieger dial. The size is just right, and even though it's 42 mm in diameter, the short lugs make it very wearable in 6 and a half inches wrists. The blue color in the dial is hard to describe and plays nicely with the light and the anti-reflective coating in the crystal, making it change from an electric blue to a dark grey under different lighting conditions. There are very few things that I would change, if I could get it my way next time: I would have an onion crown, even if that means that it cannot be branded and would have quick release spring bars in the strap (which is, by the way, a bit stiff for now). But all in all this is a beautiful watch which follows the style of a flieger style timepiece fairly close.

    Listening is important

    Marc designs watches that meet his customer's needs. That's why we just keep coming back! Thanks for listening to your customers Marc. This aviator watch pops out at me every time I look at my watch box with a clear glass cover. The size is just right and I didn't even change the strap! The entire Watch/Strap combo simply works ... and that lume!! Fantastic! Great work, great watch, great service.

    The strap is ok, but the watch is great. The Lume is great. I ware this watch 4 days a week on a blue shark nato. This watch is functional as it should be. Great work Mark.

    Islander Pilot's Watch

    Posted by Richard Sheff on Oct 13th 2020

    Beautiful watch and an incredible value. Only negative is the strap. I changed it out for a blue silicone strap to match my watch's blue dial. Mark, get busy. Silicone matching straps are where it's at.

    Great Watch For The Right Price!

    Posted by JMA on Oct 7th 2020

    Really a good looking Watch! Mine keeps excellent time. The leather band was a little stiff, but I put some light-weight boot oil on it to soften it up a little (and, yes, it will slightly darken the color a little) and it performs perfectly now. Other than that, I have no complaints.
