Cabot Watch Company (CWC) have been supplying watches to the British Armed Forces for over 40 years. Today, we’re looking at a pilot’s chronograph watch that was worn by Royal Navy pilots in the 1980s and ’90s. The watch featured here is New Old Stock (NOS), and these NOS examples are still available, albeit in limited numbers, for purchase.

The Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm operates naval aircrafts from their fleet of ships and this particular watch was built to requirements prescribed in DEF STAN 66-4 (Part 2) (you can read more about British Military Standards of the 1970s here). Today, the CWC RN Fleet Air Arm Pilot’s Chronograph serves as both a collector’s item and an all-round daily wearer. As chronographs go, it’s probably not the most beautiful in the traditional sense of the word, but it does have great character in its irregularity. Let’s get right to it.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

I'm waiting for the Sebastian Cabot model to come out. Because I like wartchs that are Pavarotti-sized, yo.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

Move the minute totalizer to the 3 and place the logo at the 12 where it fucking belongs and maybe, just maybe it wouldn't look all discombobulated and stuff.
As it stands now it looks like a polyp.

That's a bespoke movement, ewe Dammed old Goof. The colourways are astounding, though.
