Pilot Watches in a Formal Workplace - Page 4

post #46 of 58
If this is a typical Pilots watch like a Fliger, it is WAY too large to wear with a suit. If you want that plain white dial look, get a Glashutte or Lange & Sohne: see link:

Love stowa airman, at no more then 40 mm it's fine for a suit.

Wear what you like. I think it's fine for a casual attitude. For formal days I'd go with something more discreet.

Here ya go.. I work in a very conservative environment, & a very visible customer facing role & guess what?

I have a small wrist yet have been known to not think twice about wearing a diver or a pilots watch..

& no one has yet stopped me.

At the end of the day it is up to the wearer, have gravitas & nothing is a problem.. Feel conscious then don't do it..

I understand there are some guide lines about dress but we are living today not yesterday..

Finally, I think some of your "rules" guys need to loosen up..

Panerai 233J - 44mm






Rolex Submariner LV - 42mm






IWC BP - 47mm









IWC TG - 42mm



JLC AMVOX1 Ti - 42mm





IWC Inge - 42mm







IWC Port Chrono- 42mm

Totally agree with this although I wonder how your Sub grew 2mm.

It's a grower not a show-er.

More to the point, I think anyone who did that would look fairly ridiculous unless they were wearing goggles and sitting in a Spitfire...

Or a nice vintage biplane. But I agree. In fact very few qualified pilots I know have complicated "pilot's watches" – although quite a few students do. I just don't know how you could read it let alone use all the functions when flying – particularly an E6 type flight computer – I’m too busy looking out the window so as not to bump into anything and using the GPS to do the sums for me.

And then there are all the aviation jokes about the size of your watch compensating for something small

My brother used to work in a BSD type field in the financial industry. He told me that there was a reverse snobbery attitude toward watches. Many top guys would wear Timex or Casio sport watches.
