7 Pilot’s Watches That Get Aviator Style Right

Postby Darksider » April 13th 2016, 4:21pm

Just like a great pair of aviators or a worn leather jacket, the aviation watch feels charismatic, cocksure, cool. But it’s not just about aeronautical badassery. The best aviation watches are built to exacting standards and are particularly legible. And yet, a dash of iconic style never hurts, does it?

That Oris rings my bell. Pricey, but that's why we all wait 'em out.
