Aviation Watches Take Flight

Take your timepiece game to a higher level with aviation watches designed to soar.

Power Up
Before it hits your wrist, the Bremont MBIII has to go through testing that’s pretty tough, to say the least. Produced by Bremont, in collaboration with British aviation company Martin-Baker, the 43mm steel watch has to pass the same rigorous testing programme as the airplane ejector seats created by Martin-Baker.

Seeing Double
This 40mm white-gold timepiece is a cutting-edge update on a Rolex classic that was created in 1955 to enable airline pilots to read the time in two time zones simultaneously. The Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II returns, sporting its original “Pepsi” red and blue bezel – this time, rendered in high-tech ceramic, instead of the Bakelite used in the past.

Larger than Life
IWC’s horological tributes to the well-loved children’s story The Little Prince bring a dash of whimsy to its otherwise rugged aviation timepieces. The latest addition to the series is the striking Big Pilot’s Watch: Edition “Le Petit Prince”, a 46mm automatic watch in steel with a seven-day power reserve.

At the Fore
Featuring an aesthetic inspired by one of Zenith’s historical flight instruments, the Zenith Pilot Type 20 GMT 1903 pays tribute to the Wright brothers. A black DLC-coated titanium case gives the 48mm watch its lightness, while the creamy shade of its specially treated luminous numerals stands out against a black dial that has been sandblasted five times.

Global Companion
Kitted out with a second time zone and red GMT hand, the Chronoswiss Timemaster Chronograph GMT marks the evolution of the Timemaster Chronograph Date. The 44mm steel watch comes in two finishes, one of which features a DLC-coated steel case that accentuates its sporty black and grey dial.
