I work with a lot of professional pilots and I have been observing what watches they wear. I have seen a two Rolex subs, two Seamasters, two Breitlings, a cheaper Tag
So far so normal...
But I see an awful lot more cheap digital watches and cheap quartz watches. Not many chronographs.
This got me thinking, what watch do pilots really wear? The watch industry/advertising would lead us to believe pilots are all wearing Breitlings and 'aviator style' watches, but this doesn't seem to be the case in reality. I know that not many of the pilots use their watch as part of the job. The aircraft all have clocks, GPS etc.
So....what watch do pilots really wear?
