Aviator watches are characterized by numerous functions that are not only necessary while in the air - they can also prove useful for demanding hardcore users.
Customize your aviation watch to suit you
Despite many common features, aviation watches differ from each other making it possible for everyone to find something for themselves among them. The watch will appeal to both fans of extremely functional models and minimalist watches, which only by design allude to the sky voyages.
The best aviation watch brands - choose your type
Adriatica aviation watches are distinguished by their large, clear indexes and clear dials, and are some of the most elegant aviation watches available on the market. They are thus ideal both for the plane and for any important occasion. Meanwhile, the Glycine brand's models are distinguished by distinctive silver bezels on Airman models, whose versatility is manifested by their 200-meter water resistance level, and Laco aviation watches boast the achievement of the greatest minimalism among aviation watches. The Swiss Military Hanowa brand of watches, on the other hand, has a strongly military character, which makes them ideal for military aviation enthusiasts or during field exercises - thanks to the minimalist numerals, from which it is easy to read the correct time in any conditions, they will be useful not only to the pilot! The Aviator brand went a step further, covering the dials with sapphire glass with double anti-reflection, so that the reading of information is possible from any angle, even in unfavorable circumstances.
Functions of aviation watches
In all these watches, some of the basic features are dual or world time indicators, which help to determine the correct time even when crossing time zones, which often happens during flights. In addition, some models even have the ability to set several times, making it easy to determine the correct time even when flying simultaneously to several destinations in different time zones. In turn, it is already standard to put sapphire glass in aviation watches, whose task is to protect the dial from accidental scratches, and some brands additionally enrich the glass with anti-reflective layers, helping to ensure better visibility and clarity.
Aviator watches do not necessarily associate us with a multitude of functions. Some people, when thinking of this type of watches, imagine models with dials resembling the indicators found on the cockpit of an aerostat. These watch users have been thought of by brands such as: Zeppelin, Locman or Blonde. The dials of Zeppelin watches resemble the design of airships and are sure to prove a great treat for aviation fans, especially early aviation fans and lovers of the vintage style with which these watches are invariably associated.
