PROS

Style:

  • Easily recognizable as a pilot’s watch
  • Easy to read because of the large hour numerals and bold hands
  • Timeless design
  • Classic look of the dial
  • The redesigned dial gives a modern look to the watch
  • Flawless stitching of the black alligator strap

Performance:

  • Scratch resistant sapphire crystal and water resistant up to 60 meters
  • Comfortable to use since the alligator strap is very soft in the wrist
  • Antimagnetic case protects the movement from magnetism
  • Easy to read time during the day and night
  • Effortless unscrewing of the crown for time and date adjustment
  • Chronograph hands automatically resets at 12 o’ clock
  • Lume has been applied to both minute and hour hands, as well as on the four main points on the watch (12, 3, 6, and 9 o’ clock)

CONS

  • The rear bottom edge of the tang buckle is too sharp that could cause discomfort at times.
  • The lume is enough, but it would be much preferable to me if all the hour numerals have lume.
  • Others are not happy with the triple date display because they find it as no purpose at all

 

The Opinion of Our Watch Expert at Luxurious Watch Review

This pilot’s watch chronograph is given an outstanding finishing that combines sportiness with just a clue of high-society luster appreciations to some pleasant angled beveling. A great mixture of style, case’s size and an excellent execution of the style for this watch’s dial is one of the reasons why this pilot watch chronograph model works very well. If you’re rooting for a watch that is versatile, this timepiece is the one for you. It is hard to make a versatile pilot’s watch where you can wear on both casual and formal events. If you want a daily wear watch, you might be interested in Pilot’s Mark XVIII.
