Watch of the day

What's my wrist-wear choice for today?

My Flavor Of The Day

Parnis, Big Pilot - Mechanical, Sterile Dial

For Tuesday, keeping it simple and clean, with the Parnis, Big Pilot - Mechanical, With Sterile Dial. The basic requirement and earmark of any Flieger timepiece, is a easily readable dial, at a glance. After all, fighter pilots of the vintage era, didn't have the luxury of being able to gaze for long periods of time, into the dial of their watches; there were more pressing matters. This Parnis not only checks the box of dial legibility, but does it with a style rivaling brand offerings a much higher price points.

The white index markers against the matte Black dial, offers the perfect visual contrast. I love that Parnis opted for a nice brown leather strap, without the usual rivets; just gives this timepiece a cleaner overall look, IMO.

Playing-on the darker tones within the dial and strap, I've paired this timepiece with a large-gauge, Tiger's-Eye bracelet, offering an extremely complimentary look to this Flieger.
