Islander Aviator Automatic Watch with Leather Strap and an Anti-Reflective Sapphire Crystal #ISL-87

The new Islander ISL-87 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 green 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-87 features a Type-B dial with a large 60-minute scale and Arabic numerals in the center of the dial. The hour hand, minute hand, and dial markings are all treated with C3 SuperLuminova.
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 medium 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-87 aviator watch features a screw down crown which provides a water resistance rating of 100 meters.

    Stunning !!!

    Blown away by the quality of this watch! The pictures seriously don't do it the justice it deserves. Also pleasantly surprised (at 42mm) at how well it fits my relatively small wrist, as I thought it would be too large but was wrong, Highly recommend this beauty!!

    The face puts the Islander ahead of the Laco. The increase length of the hour hand just give the perfect sight picture. The second hand gives me a sense of presents. I guess what I'm saying is that this watch is a great for daily wear with its no hassle presentation and calming statement of the passage of time.

    Better than the pictures

    The pictures DO NOT do this watch justice. The green was a little darker and in natural lighting looks far better than what comes through on my monitor. I was happy to buy the watch, but am happier to OWN it.

    Islander #ISL-87 Flieger Type B Green Dial

    Excellent watch! I really like the lack of a date window on this particular model. I am as pleased with this Islander as I am with my other three: #ISL-32, #ISL-38, and #ISL43. I would and do recommend the Islander line of watches to my friends and family.

    I’m thrilled with my Islander pilot. The green dial is handsome, fit and finish up to par, but what really struck was the strap. It is thick, substantial leather, and gives the watch a nice rugged feel. All considered, a great watch for $200.
