Whether you are a pilot or not, it is safe to assume that everybody likes aviator watches when features and designs are laid on the table. For pilots, to be able to tell time accurately is a very important thing, especially when they are flying. Pilot watches usually have large, luminous dials that result in a more convenient way of reading the time whatever the weather condition may be. Multiple bezel readouts also give these watches the edge, assisting with wind correction angles and several pilot calculations.
