8 German Pilot Watches

With numerous attractive and yet completely different timepieces, German watch brands capture the airspace. We present eight flyers, which show the whole range of the genre.

Deutsche Fliegeruhren-# 1: Meaning 103 TI UTC IFR

The 103 TI UTC IFR by Sinn Spezialuhren is one of the first chronographs to introduce the DIN 8330 flyer clock standard, which is launched in 2016. The stopper is easy to read at any time, operates at a high temperature range and withstands physical loads such as pressure fluctuations and vibrations.

The clock can completely replace the time measurement instruments in the aircraft in case of emergency. The second time zone is indicated by an additional central gray pointer on a twelve-hour basis.

Titanium, 41 millimeters

Eta-Valjoux 7750, automatic

from 2,880 Euros (with leather strap)

Deutsche Fliegeruhren-# 2: Stowa Flieger DIN Professional

From the Technical Standard Pilot Watch, which still exists, 2016 has been the DIN standard 8330 with partially tightened criteria. Stowa reacts with the launch of the functional and ergonomic Flieger Professional DIN . Their design, which combines well-known and new forms, comes from former Apple designer Hartmut Esslinger.

Titanium, 47 millimeters

Eta 2824, automatic

2,150 euros

German Pilot’s Watches-# 3: Tutima Grand Flieger Classic Automatic

Without being able to stop itself, the Grand Flieger Classic Automatic quotes the design of the Tutima trailer chronographs from the 1940s. Typical are the subdivided luminaries, the simple numeric typography as well as the corrugated rotary bezel with red zero marking for measuring time intervals up to 60 minutes.

Stainless steel, 43 mm

Eta 2836, automatic

1,900 euros

Deutsche Fliegeruhren – # 4: Laco Pilot’s Watch Blue Hour

With twelve-hour scaling as a model A, the Laco Fliegeruhr Blue Hour is entirely in the tradition of classic aviation watches, which Laco has built almost continuously since the 1940s. The blue dial with sun-setting alone breaks out of this tradition and lends the pilot a certain extravagance. The model is also available as a model B-design variant. Both variants-model A and B-were produced in the 1940s for the German Luftwaffe. Model A was intended for pilots and corresponded to a classically simple dial with hour numbers, model B facilitated their work by means of large numbers of mints at the edge as well as a small, discreet hour circle near the center.

Stainless steel, 42 mm

Eta 2824, automatic  or  Eta 2801, manual hoist

850 euros

Deutsche Fliegeruhren-#5: Wempe Zeitmeister Pilot’s Watch Automatic

The basic model of the Wempe watch collection , the Zeitmeister Fliegeruhr Automatik, offers a very good price/performance ratio . For 1,400 euros, pilots and watch fans receive a well-balanced and discreetly dimensioned model whose clockwork is enhanced by a German Chronometer certificate and its own fine-tuning.

Stainless steel, 38 mm

modified Eta 2892, automatic

1,400 euros

Deutsche Fliegeruhren-# 6: Mill-Glashütte SAR Flieger-Chronograph

On the unusual “twisted” design of the SAR Flieger-Chronographen from Mühle-Glashütte the rescue flights of the German navy helped. In addition to the orange first 10 seconds of the stop scale, they also wanted an enlarged pusher on the left side of the housing, which can be comfortably operated with the-gloved-right thumb. Among other typical mill components, the chronograph caliber has a glash nut three-platter.

Stainless steel, 44 mm

modified Sellita SW 500, automatic

3.250 euros

German Pilot’s Watches-# 7: Archimede Pilot 42 GMT

The Pforzheim brand Archimede manufactures the housings for their watches themselves. This fact and the use of unchanged basal calibers allows attractive pricing. The classically designed Pilot 42 GMT  with a genre-type conical crown, brushed stainless steel housing and riveted calfskin strap remains well below € 2,000. On the black dial, next to the hour, minute and second, the second time zone is also indicated by a red pointer from the center. The date window at the six can be easily overlooked.

Stainless steel, 42 mm

Eta 2893, automatic

1,080 euros

Deutsche Fliegeruhren-# 8: Junghans master pilot

The Junghans master pilot is a reinterpretation of the Fliegerchronograph for the Bundeswehr, introduced in 1955. Accordingly, the 43 millimeter stopper also has the distinctive bezel with its twelve concave incisions that help to provide better grip. The blue dial is shown in proven instrument optics: the two totalizers do not divert the time. They are recessed and accommodate the small second at three o’clock and the 30 minute counter at nine o’clock. The leather strap also grips the tone of the dial.
