The idea of the pilot’s watch is one of subtle distinction. Seemingly an evolution of the eternal go-getter, the field watch, aviation-specific replica watches for sale have evolved from the need for outright legibility in the cockpit and now represent a core consideration in the history of the sports watch.
In honor of an aviation-themed weekend here at Hodinkee, I asked a few of the Hodinkee team to weigh in with their favorite pilot’s watch. Old, new, rare, and even quartz, here are the high-flying Swiss made fake watches that we think of when it comes to the genre of the pilot’s watch. If we happen to have missed your favorite, be sure to let us know in the comments.
Replica Cartier Santos Medium Watches In Yellow Gold
A pilot’s watch isn’t typically my style, at least not the usual flieger type, but there is one specific model that I’ve had my eye on for a while – and even came close to purchasing a few times these last few years, and it’s from a brand that’s known more for their fashion 1:1 fake watches and jewelry. Despite this brand’s reputation as a high-end fashion house, it’s interestingly also responsible for being the first to strap a watch on a pilot’s wrist. I’m sure you all know that story by now, so I won’t bore you with the details, but my choice for the top pilot’s watch has to be the AAA UK replica Cartier Santos watches.
The Santos is a versatile watch that I can see myself wearing for literally any occasion. It’s dressy enough for the boardroom (or just a Zoom call with my colleagues) and casual enough to pull off at a pool party, sipping some ice-cold adult beverages in Palm Springs. I know this probably isn’t remotely close to anything my fellow editors selected, and no, the top copy watches doesn’t make me pine for the early days of aviation. I might be cheating a little bit with this selection, but it is still technically a pilot’s watch.
Now, there are a few different variations of the Santos, but, of course, I’m not doing stainless steel. I’m doing yellow gold baby! And for size, I’m definitely sticking with the medium because the large is too big for me. Unfortunately, the gold perfect replica watches is a little outside of my budget, but I’ll take the two-tone as a consolation. Enjoy the skies from your airplanes, my friends – a big cheers with my piña colada from this fabulous poolside soirée.
Fake Breitling Aerospace E56062 Watches
While it was hard to not pick an IWC 3717 Doppelchronogaph, this list has plenty of IWC and I had to be true to myself. Deep down, I’m an Aerospace boy. Breitling has a legendary history in the development of the post-modern pilot’s watch (in terms of theory, think post-WWII). With that in mind, I figure one either starts at the beginning, with 2023 super clone watches like the early Navitimers (swoon), or where the whole concept evolved under the pressure of modern technology and gave birth to the Aerospace. While vastly different from its forebearers, the Aerospace came out in 1985 with the goal of outright function. Quartz was still a relatively new idea, and the online replica Breitling Aerospace watches applied the technology, arguably in its nerdiest form (ana-digi – ’til I die), with deeply toolish intentions.
While I have love in my partially digital heart for just about any Aerospace, my fav range is the second-gen 40mm E56062 models. I have written about them in the past and owned a lovely full-grey example that I regret selling. Thin, made of lightweight titanium, and rocking a digital crown that controlled additional features like a second time zone, chronograph, perpetual calendar, and alarm, the Breitling Aerospace fake watches for men feels like a tiny instrument pulled from the cluster of a mid-80’s plane. Later examples offered screens with backlights, and you better believe I have a long-standing alert for the solid gold Aerospace K75362. You know, for market research.
