Timekeeping is one of the foundations of navigation, from time and track to fuel burn to ETA it is paramount. So we put a guide together to review the best aviator watches for men on the market .
Digital watches are not as attractive and stylish as analog but are better in function.They tend to be cheaper in price but quality is still great for what you pay. A quick scan at your wrist gives you the exact time in a clear fashion. A backlight makes the numbers stand out in a dark cockpit but means you have to push a button to see.
Analog watches can come in a dial with all kinds of bells and whistles, but the reality is you will probably never use that flight computer which so manufactures try to promote.The digits are just too small to be useful so honestly don’t bother. A BIG dial is what you are looking for to see the exact time at a quick glance.This is very important when you are bouncing around on a turbulent day.
If you can not make up your mind there are also the combo analog watch with a digital window so you can have the best of both worlds.
The possibilities are endless but there is a reason why the elite aviation watch brands keep their watches rather simple in design.
