The Seiko pilot watch (Adventure Solar) is a great watch for pilots. It truly ticks all the right boxes for a great aviation watch.
It’s got a nice big 42mm dial with very visible hands in the day and the luminance is bright at night night. It’s got dual time to keep track of Zulu and local time plus 3 alarm settings and a chronograph with well separated push buttons. Being 100m water-resistant and made of stainless steel and a slightly domed hardlex crystal it not only eye pleasing but also very rugged.
A unique future is rotating bezel compass, not so much a compass as a direction reminder or indicator. It is a solar-powered watch that can be charge from different light sources and keeps the internal battery charge at all times,so forget about ever changing your battery.
The Seiko Adventures Solar is a very stylish watch for the outdoorsman and fashion trendy man alike.I cannot think of a better aviation watch in this class and is a steal for under $200. This Seiko Pilot watch I would highly recommend and give it the editor’s choice.
