It’s a big year for the Pilot collection and for the brand in general. It’s the first time the brand has completely revamped the collection and its take on a traditional aviation-inspired watch. The new design has nods to vintage watches but also hints at a more modern, lifestyle-oriented watch while firmly retaining its links with aviation and the brand’s heritage. The range includes both time-only and flyback chronograph models in steel and ceramic cases. Learn more : https://nanadc.com/best-pocket-watch/
What is the king of all watches?
The aviator’s bezel is inspired by the type-A and type-B beobachtungsuhr or observers watches used in early aviation and offers a nod to tradition without being too retro. The case is a tonneau shape and comes in both stainless steel and black ceramic. Both versions are microblasted to give a matte finish that plays well with the black dial and adds depth to the case. The oversize crown is a thing of beauty and carries the brand’s star in relief to add to its aesthetic appeal. Low-light conditions are catered for with cream-coloured Super-LumiNova on the indices and hands.
The bracelet is crafted from titanium and microblasted to compliment the case and sits perfectly on the wrist. Both front and rear crystals are sapphire and the exhibition case back showcases the in-house El Primero 3652 Flyback Chronograph movement — all of which is a testament to the brand’s legacy and dedication to accurate timekeeping.
