    LEBOY Test Pilot - A chronograph inspired by vintage Italian Air Force watches

    Hey guys, I've been working on a pilot's watch inspired by vintage military chronographs (mostly Italian). Would love to get some feedback on it. I want it to have a classy and rugged 50s/60s Cold War vibe to it. The minutes sub-dial is a "big eye" and fully lumed (I'm really hoping that it will be possible to have strong lume on such small markers). Again, any feedback is much appreciated!

    Looks very unbalanced with that large sub dial and with out it you just have another aviator clone all too similar to a heuer and the HKED homage. Sorry but a miss for me.
    If I fail to reply to your inane post just assume you are on the ignore list.

    I bought a knackered clock.... https://carlsclock.blogspot.com/ Updated 29/4/19

    Because it's a stealth military watch ! The camouflage is so clever that you didn't saw the watch.
