EONIQ x DWC Navigator - Create a Big Pilot watch with a modernized type-B Pilot dial

One type of Big Pilot from the World War era are the type-B pilot watch. They feature a dial with minutes as the main markers, and hours as the secondary. This is because, as a fighter pilot, or a navigator back in the day, a watch that tells minutes is more useful than a watch that tells hours. 

Additionally, most people won't need the 1-12 numerals to tell hours anyways.

This 44mm pilot watch has a PVD case, and both C3 and BGW9 for the dial.

If you don't mind the ghost click, I'd definitely consider putting in a Miyota 8315 movement.

We chose a beautiful black calf-leather strap for this pilot watch. Big, black, and bold.

Mod potential:★

Difficulty Level: ★★ (This 44mm watch is the most challenging set for watch hand installation among our collections. The huge dial size requires us to custom design the shape of the second hand, which results in a very delicate and difficult-to-install second hand.)
