State of the Collection Pilot's/Flieger watch Edition

As we close the year I wanted to show Pilot/flieger  watches some love. Post your collection and share some pilot watches that you have on you bucket list.

These are some pilot watches I have on my bucket list:

Glycine Airman

Glycine Airman – Analog:Shift

Dan Henry 1945

1945

Hemel

New Alpina Startimer

Alpina Startimer Pilot 41

Vintage Alpina Heritage

Vintage Eye for the Modern Guy: Alpina Startimer Pilot Heritage | WatchTime  - USA's No.1 Watch Magazine

·

I only have a couple that stroke a cord with me and seemed pretty cool.

The Ollech & Wajs P-104 S for all its good funk and orange accents

Image

The Sinn 856 which has a great dial design and I could even learn to live with the stressed tanned fugazi lume

Image

I favor the O&W for its originality and touch of orange, but both are pricy and I would rather indulge other watch pursuits.

·

I have exactly the same Glycine in my list for a milestone watch. And I think it is the only watch that can be called pilot on my horizon for the nearest future. Your collection is very cool. Which one of the pilots is your favourite?

·

Here are the pilot watches in my collection.

Islander #ISL-107 Pilot Watch

Image

Accurist Skytimer

Image

Hamilton Khaki Pilot Flight Timer

Image

Seiko 5 SRPH33 (technically a pilot dial)

I am looking to add a Seiko Flight Timer to my collection in the future, but that is really the only one on my radar.

Sinn and Fortis are two brands I hope to have! Great Choices and now I'm looking into Ollech & Wajs first time I heard of them.

I forgot the Bulova A15😭. That's definitely on my list to buy. I never seen that Hamilton I love the collection 🎯

My three most worn watches are all Pilot / aviation themed… 

Christopher Ward C8 MKII, 2009, 44mm

Image

Breitling Avenger 43mm GMT, 2021

Image

IWC Pilot 41mm Chrono, 2022

Image


In a hobby where 90% of the focus is on dive watches, I find myself drawn much more to this kind of aesthetic. My next pickup would be the 417 ES from Hanhart but only when it comes back available in 39mm.

One day I’d love to add a medium Santos… the original pilots watch 😉❤️

Thanks for prompting, great collection 👍🏻
