Beautiful but a little heavy

  • By Amy from Oak Creek WI USA on Tuesday, October 23, 2012
  • Pros: Beautiful
  • Cons: Weight, E6B VERY small, hands don't glow
  • Review: This watch is beautiful but it is a little heavy and tends to spin on my wrist if not tightly adjusted. It's not the easiest to set the date/time but once done, it's fine. Also (as others have said) the hands don't glow. I'm still very happy with it and would purchase it again.

I'd recommend this watch to other female pilots

  • By Hazel from Cranwell Lincolnshire United Kingdom on Wednesday, October 30, 2013
  • Pros: Nicely "girlie" for a female pilot and good luminous hands! (although the hands need "charging up" first.
  • Cons: Being in the UK, the date function clicks over at the wrong time and I ahev to keep manually changing it. You did not mention the customs cost on your site for overseas customers. We need to kinow that to take that into account when purchasing the item.
  • Review: Being in the UK, the date function clicks over at the wrong time and I have to keep manually changing it. Its great having a leather strap rather than the more usual metal pilots watch strap, and also a colourful one rather than a plan black/silver. I haven't yet used the whizz wheel element on the face or used it in anger as it were flying but with the large figures, it should be good.

    [Reply from MyPilotStore:  It sounds like you just need to move the clock ahead 12 hours so that the date flips at the right time.  Based on your description, it sounds like the date flips at noon instead of midnight]

Great! But could be outstanding

  • By A Customer from UT USA on Monday, December 09, 2013
  • Pros: Zulu time, date, E6B is accurate, well balanced design, small for an aviator watch
  • Cons: E6B rotating crown needs to be on the right side not left side.
  • Review: I love the size and simplicity. I am a female student pilot, so the K.I.S.S. styling is great for me. I'm loving the Zulu time function and the date window. The E6B bezel is accurate and I use it for calculations on the ground-it loses its practicality in the cockpit environment for a newbe like me. I can't stand having the E6B rotating crown on the opposite side from my free hand. It is awkward to use without removing the watch. Also, I notice a bit of slippage when I use the rotating bezel-it doesn't quite "catch" and rotate each time I use it. It seems to have a freer movement when I take it off my wrist to use it. The stainless steel accents are very aesthetically pleasing and they catch the light adding some shine to the watch. The luminous clock ticks and hands are very easy to see in the dark. The alligator watch band is well-made, comfortable and balances the design perfectly. The sapphire crystal "glass"cover hasn't gotten a single scratch and I've knocked it around a bit-no scratches either. It stays shiny and smudge-free. The beautiful logo is tastefully used as accents throughout the design.
