Islander Black DLC Aviator Automatic Watch with Leather Strap and an Anti-Reflective Sapphire Crystal #ISL-81
This is a new Islander model ISL-81. It has a black Type-B dial which has a small 12-hour scale with a larger outer 60-minute scale. The black dial has SuperLuminova on the sword-style hands and hour makers. The dial is unbranded like many of the vintage WWII offerings. The hour hand, minute hand, and dial markings are all treated with C3 SuperLuminova. The seconds hand is painted orange. The dial has excellent visibility due to the use of an anti-reflective sapphire crystal that also guards against scratches.
The black DLC 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. This model comes with a black 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-81 aviator watch also features a screw down crown which provides a water resistance rating of 100 meters. Weight is 88 grams.
