    Cincinnati Watch Co. – P-40M, Best New Pilot's Watch?

    On this episode, we preview the P-40M from relative newcomer Cincinnati Watch Company. This watch was produced in Honor of an Oshkosh Grand Champion P-40M Restoration and in partnership with the Tri-State Warbird Museum, so a portion of every sale will benefit the restoration & preservation of WWII Aircraft. Which means apart from the excellent watch itself, their brand has quite a bit of cool factor as well. We all love a brand with a great story and in the case of the P-40M, the clean classic pilot watch aesthetic and execution are very nicely complimented with the genuine sentiment for the historical aircraft it draws inspiration from. A highlight for me is the scale of the watch, as it really hits a sweet spot in terms of balancing the data on the dial onto a timepiece that still makes a great everyday wrist watch. It would've been easy to make something similar in a 42mm width but I'm glad they chose to go with a more svelte 40.5mm scale, combine that with the still perfectly proportioned dial layout and you have all the makings of a classic. Let me know what you think in the comments below, thanks guys!

    I really like it. Much more than I thought I would when I first started watching your video.

    Great dial and great profile. Very nice for a niche watch, IMHO.

    As an aviation enthusiast, I find this a very interesting piece given the price, warbird connection, and cause! Also, thanks for your service, from a former Air Force sheet metal mechanic. You didn't happen to go through NAS Pensacola for your tech training, did you?
