Men’s Pilot Watches have been present in the cockpit since the beginning of aviation in the early 20th Century. However, it wasn’t until the 1930’s that wristwatches became widely popular in the form of easy to read pilots’ watches. These time measuring instruments were designed with their intended use in mind. Pilots were equipped with chronographs, large observation watches were given to navigators and other crew members wore smaller three-hand watches.

Today, pilot watches are the perfect choice for those who prefer a pared back, practical timepiece. Functional, legible and reliable, they have a unique utilitarian style.

Firstly, in terms of aesthetics, cases are large to ensure that the watch is legible. Similarly, dials are clear with bold printing. See the Alpina Startimer which has a 44mm case with clear, easy to read dial. For maximum visibility, luminescence is used on the dials to ensure they remain legible in poor light. The Ball Engineer Master II Aviator is the ultimate watch for night visibility with 66 micro gas tubes on the dial.

In terms of functionality, Men’s Pilot Watches are designed to be accessible. Firstly, crowns are oversized for ease of use when wearing gloves. See the Oris Big Crown ProPilot. Similarly, bezels are often ergonomically shaped as per the Junghans Meister Pilot Chronograph. This makes them easy to grip. Chronographs such as the Mühle Glashütte Men’s Terrasport I are perfect for timing. For a real all-rounder at a great price, the Citizen Red Arrows Limited Edition is definitely worth consideration.
