Islander Aviator Automatic Watch with White A-Dial and and Sapphire Crystal #ISL-223
The new Islander ISL-223 is an Aviator-Pilot style watch with a Type-A 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 NH36, 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. While the movement has a date change position, the mechanics have been removed, so there is no ghost clicking.
The white dial has Super-LumiNova on the sword-style hands and hour makers. The dial is unbranded like many of the vintage WWII offerings. The Islander ISL-223 features a Type-A 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 Super-LumiNova. The seconds hand is painted blue for contrast. 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 tan leather strap with brown 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-223 aviator watch features a screw down crown which provides a water resistance rating of 100 meters.
