A selection of our favorite Aviator watches.
12 November 2019
Aviation is our absolute passion, watches and flying have gone hand in hand since the Wright Brothers, although the watches on our list are all modern and more recent models they all in some way reflect the timing, precision and tradition that is flying!
IWC Big Pilots Heritage Watch
Inspired by the IWC Big Pilots Watch Calibre, this stunning watch has a retro look with an impressive 46-millimetre diameter which reflects an intense focus on legibility. Although ‘Big’ the case is made from Titanium and weighs less than 150 Grams and like the original the chapter ring, Arabic numerals and propeller like hands are all beige. A fabulous traditional style for the modern pilot.
Bell and Ross BR-V2-94 Racing Bird
If you’re a stunt or racing pilot, this watch will be easy to read upside down at 500ft, it comes with its own plane too…enough said!
Breitling Montbrilliant 01
The Montbrilliant 01 was named after the Ruelle Montbrilliant in La Chaux de Fonds, the building that housed some of Breitlings earliest creations from as early as 1892. Although modern in outlook this beautiful timepiece takes its inspiration from the 1940’s and 1950’s featuring the famous aviation slide rule and while the serious pilot may choose another Breitling model we love this for the combination of functionality, tradition and elegance.
Bremont ALT ZT
Bremont watches adorn the wrists of civilian and military pilots alike all over the globe and for good reason. Designed, manufactured and assembled in England, Bremont are proud of their heritage and their watches are superbly manufactured and rigorously tested with uncompromising quality. The Z series was launched by Bremont in 2007 and the ALT ZT is the most recent model with several refinements from the original.
Classic Longines design that reaches back through its heritage combining some of the features from some of their most iconic watches, possibly the most famous being the timepiece developed for Charles Lindbergh in 1931.
Patek Philippe Calatrava Pilot Travel Time
