Classic Pilot mechanical watch

Aviation and time have always had a very intimate relationship.  A vital component of flight and a representation of the unyielding human spirit of adventure, aviator watches have been around since the first daring aviation pioneers took to the skies more than 100 years ago.

You discover how linked the histories of the watchmaking and aviation industries are as you research their pasts.  The aviator watch has been a crucial tool for pilots for many years.  In the past, airmen's timepieces provided by Air Force personnel were even subject to severe standards and detailed specifications.

The complexity of pilot watches has risen as aviation technology has advanced.  Even though modern airplanes are outfitted with the most advanced navigation and communications systems, a pilot's watch is still a necessary piece of gear for many pilots, both commercial and private.

These historically accurate timepieces assist pilots in calculating critical data during flight, including fuel consumption, speed of climb or descent, and other calculations.  Even if we may now travel at supersonic speeds, the pilot's watch will always serve as a longing reminder of the past and a reminder of our never-ending desire for progress.

Pilot watches made by Cronos that can resist the harsh conditions of high-altitude locations are used by troops all around the world.   There is no doubting the advantages of a pilot's watch, whether you are a "frequent flyer," an aviation enthusiast, an important member of the ground crew, or someone who flies a cutting-edge fighter jet that breaks the sound barrier.

With a BGW9-blue luminova luminous display, Cronos Vintage Pilot watches offer the highest visibility under any lighting situation.   Additionally, for the best readability, our convex sapphire crystal may significantly reduce reflected light. Pilots can easily read the time in any weather thanks to the dark dial and contrasting numbers.
