My Brother sent me a gift. It is an Islander ISL-48 Pilot watch. Here is an excerpt form the review that I left on the website:

"...First, it arrived 4 DAYS EARLY! Next, it was very well packaged and protected. The watch itself is flawless and as described. I would challenge anyone to find a Pilot watch with these specs at this price-point".

I cannot say enough about the great experience I have had dealing with Long Island Watch.

This watch does however bring one question to mind...

...Is it possible to have TOO MUCH LUME on a watch? This puppy GLOWS LIKE A TORCH!!! It would light up a COAL MINE! The first time I walked into a lit room from outside, this baby was GLOOOOOWING! I have finally discovered what was in the briefcase in the movie "Pulp Fiction"...

AN ISLANDER ISL-48!

Thanks Marc.

I stand corrected.:) However, remember that the answer to the question "What is the best watch"? is always a toss up between either...

1. The watch I am wearing
or
b. The next watch I get.

You got me there Gary. That one has the edge coming from your brother, so that trumps on or off the wrist, past, present or in the future.
:cheers: Wear it in the best of health.
