Wristwatches have come a long way since European soldiers and pilots wore them in the early war-torn 20th century to help coordinate attacks on the battlefield. Nowadays smart watches tend to be used to playback digital media instead of telling the time.
Thankfully, watchmaker DELTAt has stuck to the classic design favoured by pilots: large dial, large crown, hacking seconds and extended strap.
Even if you never get the chance to fly a plane and live out a boyhood fantasy, at least you can look the part with a pilot’s watch. Flying jacket, goggles and helmet are optional.
