Published on Aug 24, 2017

With my ever growing obsession for watches designed for aviation, I decided to share my top ten best suggestions for pieces priced under $1000 currently on the market today. I love pilot watches, as the designs and range of complications can be so varied, fun, but yet always there to serve a purpose. For me, aviation themed watches also have the a romantic allure of adventure but yet always remaining toolastically (yes, I made that up) functional. In today’s line up we have some historic classics, movie stars, to the cutting edge technology and many Gentry favourites in the mix too.

I’m very partial to the flightmaster, although I can’t see myself using any of the features around the dial, except the timer perhaps.

Love my flighty. Paid $350 Aussie for it, its discontinued now. $270 odd USD which is insane but I just fell in love with it. Damn you TGV!
