Pilot watches have been a necessity for most pilots for decades, with their original features and classic designs proving highly popular. Pilot watches are specially designed to provide maximum comfort for long distance journeys and with the face of the watch designed to be easily readable in all lighting conditions. Often designed to be unconditionally functional for the most demanding conditions which is crucial for pilots.
Page and Cooper are independent fine watch specialists, providing an expert service for a wide range of high quality timepieces. Page and Cooper’s pilot watches collection are perfect for any style or price range. Here we have selected 5 of our favourites to showcase to you.
One of the original pilot watches came for the brand Laco, who Page and Cooper are proud to be the official UK distributers of. With over 90 years of watch making experience, the Laco Tokio watch is a perfect match for all pilots. With sapphire crystal making up the dial glass and smooth leather strap, this watch manages to incorporate a luxury style with practical design. It still has the features of an original pilot watch with luminous hands and numbers and a 50m water resistance adding that practical element.
Fortis have become a world leader in manufacturing watches for aviation. Another watch that reflects the traditional pilot watch design from the Fortis range is the Aviatis Flieger Cockpit. With a strikingly clear dial and a unique design which focus on the main elements of the Flieger Classic giving the watch its name. This watch gives a more youthful design with the split coloured face of the watch, as well as contributing to making it unmissable in all lighting conditions.
The Fortis Aviatis Daybreaker Stealth is an elegant and unique timepiece which consists of more than 500 micro-mechanical parts, making it one of the most complicated yet amazing watches ever made. A chronograph alarm, water resistant to 200m and with white superluminal coated numbers, indices and hands these are just some of the things that make this Fortis watch extraordinary.
The next watch I’ve chosen in the pilot range is one of great quality and packed with features essential for a pilots watch. The Damasko DC56 is an all-black, smart design, perfect for the more subtle watch wearers who will love its more technical flair. With a day/date window, self-winding mechanical movement and shockproof features this watch means business. Renowned for being tough-wearing and suitable for extreme weather temperatures Damasko watches are perfect for any pilot.
Another watch from the Page and Cooper pilot range is the Sinn 900 Diapal, this watch combines a range of different Sinn technologies to offer maximum reliability for time measurement and functionality. A special design feature on this watch is the Ar-Dehumidifing technology to prevent fogging in the watch face and ensures clear visibility which is crucial for a pilots watch. It also offers practical features such as American and European conversion tracking scales, perfect for pilots who are traveling through different time zones. This stainless steel watch is visually stunning, making it a potentially multifunctional watch which can be worn on most occasions.
