Buyer’s Guide: 15 Best Pilot’s Watches to Choose From Buyer's Guide

Looking at our stats, I see that demand for recommendations regarding diving watches is a seasonal thing with most visitors coming in summer and then gradually declining till Christmas only to start growing again in early January. "Pilots" are different animals: I have an impression that people are always interested in "aviators" regardless of the time of season. So, for your reading pleasure, a choice of fifteen timekeepers from under $200 to more than $10,000 as priced by online retailers that I find worthy of being considered while shopping for your new (or maybe your very first!) pilot's watch this year.


IWC Ingenieur Chronograph “W 125” Limited Edition in Titanium (Ref. IW380701) Swiss Watches

First presented earlier this year at Baselworld 2016, the new IWC Ingenieur Chronograph "W 125" (ref. IW380701) limited edition automatic wristwatch comes in a nice -if somewhat bulky due to its 42 mm wide to 15 mm high proportions- titanium case that features an appealing combination of mirror-polished front surfaces that are lovely accented by deliberately roughly brushed sides. Set to go on sale in just three or four months (the Swiss watchmakers mentions "autumn" in its press release), the new member of the legendary Ingenieur family will be offered at a competitive -all things considered- price of just over $7000 USD.


IWC Top Gun Miramar Chronograph Automatic (ref. IW389002) Swiss Watches

Officially revealed last January at SIHH 2016 show, the new IWC Top Gun Miramar Chronograph (ref. IW389002) automatic wristwatch brings everything you loved about the Miramar collection, albeit in a smaller package. With a touch oversized case crafted from dark grey scratch-resistant ceramic and a high-contrast, yet discreet dial layout, this new model looks like a very interesting choice for a person who always wanted a dressy pilot, but wasn't quite satisfied with earlier models and their Gargantuan proportions.


IWC Aquatimer Deep Three Titanium (Ref. IW355701) Swiss Watches

Unveiled early this year at SIHH 2014, the IWC Aquatimer Deep Three Titanium (Ref. IW355701) is perhaps the first tool watch that actually looks great. Its lightweight titanium case is meticulously crafted and features a much elaborated high-tech finish. With its easy-grip rotating bezel and crisp (although a bit busy thanks to its mechanical depth gauge display) dial, the wristwatch would look very organic in a sci-fi movie like Oblivion or maybe even Prometheus.


IWC Portofino Hand-Wound Big Date Boutique Edition (Refs. IW516102 / IW516101) Swiss Watches

IWC has recently revealed a nice addition to its splendid Portofino range of oversized timekeepers. Always conservative in its approach, extremely reluctant when it comes to evolving its design language, the Swiss watchmaker again brings us a watch that features all the elements that we loved so much in their 2011 IWC Portofino Hand-Wound Eight Days Caliber 59210 (Ref. 5101) model with only one change: the new IWC Portofino Hand-Wound Big Date Boutique Edition (Refs. IW516102 / IW516101) has the simple calendar display replaced with a lot more appealing Big Date indicator.


IWC Big Pilot’s Watch TOP GUN Boutique Edition Green (Ref. IW501903) Swiss Watches

The Swiss-based watchmaking juggernaut IWC has prepared a limited edition version of its Big Pilot watch. Sporting the same dial layout as the 2010 IWC Blue Big Pilot Limited Edition 7 Days Power Reserve model, the new IWC Big Pilot's Watch TOP GUN Boutique Edition Green (Ref. IW501903) grew even bigger and finally got its stainless steel body swapped in favor of a more appealing black ceramic.


IWC Ingenieur Carbon Performance Limited Edition (Ref. 3224) Swiss Watches

If you keep an eye on fresh products from IWC and are also a fan of the world's most popular racing series, you probably know that the Swiss watchmaker sponsors the Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One team and have probably noticed the gorgeous, cool as Arctic ice IWC Ingenieur Racer Automatic Chronograph that was announced back in December, 2012. Well, it seems that the brand decided not to limit its onslaught to just one F1-themed watch. Behold the new IWC Ingenieur Carbon Performance limited edition (Ref. 3224) watch.
