Recently, while continuing down the road of my pilot watch obsession, I stumbled upon a company called PJS Watches. They offer a variety of watches in quartz and automatic but my eye was specifically drawn to their Pilot series Ref 201 and 202. At ~$250 after shipping, the 201 and 202 are faithful homages to the standard pilot watches issued to German pilots in WWII.
Today I’ve dressed down the 16700 with a Black/Grey NATO Strap. I love the dressed down look of the NATO and it helps keeps thing fresh during the week. Check out more on NATO Straps here.
Today we’re ready for our mission briefing with the Seiko TV Watch. We’re still working on sourcing a working transmitter unit to get the screen working but it’s a cool piece nonetheless.
