Vintage Pilot Watch with NATO strap. Faux-Vintage lume edition
A military pilot watch inspired by traditional timekeepers back in the World War era (Mark XI Pilot Watch created specifically for the British Royal Airforce). This is a modern interpretation of the traditional pilot watch. The watch dial has clear and legible numerals and lumed markers.
At the size of 40mm, this is a no-nonsense tool watch powered by the tried and true Miyota 8 series movement. The brown superlume is a faux-vintage lume. The no-date watch dial is beautifully symmetric and is appropriate as vintage pilot watches back then did not have a date function.
Vintage military watches and tool watch like this pairs well with nato straps as these straps are easily cleaned and require minimal maintenance. Stylish and extremely practical for all conditions :)
