Gift set with a classic Pilot Watch

- He thinks Rolexes are overrated (too common)
- He loves Top Gun
- He enjoys all things EDCs, such as blades, flashlights, and all things military such as military watches on fabric straps
Then you know you've arrived at the right kit. This is a 40mm Pilot Watch kit with a field/military watch design language. Its design references a classic military watch back in the world war era - Mark XI Pilot watch created specifically for the British Royal Airforce.
This will be a no-nonsense pilot watch that is powered by a Japanese-made 60-hr power reserve quality mechanical movement. With sapphire crystal and a genuine calf leather strap, this will be a timeless gift watch :)
