What's My Wrist-Wear Choice for Today?
My Flavor of the Day
For hump day, and the return of summertime temperatures, I thought it only appropriate to wear a timepiece today that incorporated a little color. The Aviator, Smith's Flight Team Chronograph, Limited Edition, fit the bill.
This Aviator is an extreme precision chronograph, and you would imagine it would have to be, to be endorsed by an acrobatic flight team. The watch dial has amazing texturing, a nice contrast to the index markers, hands, and well placed splashes of colors. The unique design feature of this timepiece, are the top-mounted chronograph start and stop pushers, which supposedly make it easier for a Pilot to manipulate the chronograph timekeeping function, with the benefit of gloves. There is also superb engraving work on the caseback of this timepiece (as pictured below).
