Watch of the day (WOTD)

What's my wrist-wear choice for today?

My Flavor Of The Day

Parnis, Big Pilot - Mechanical (Sterile Dial)

Keeping the Pilot theme going for Friday, with the Parnis, Big Pilot - Mechanical, Sterile Dial. For a vintage, flieger-style timepiece, there's nothing like a clean, Type-A dial, an absolute must for pilots and navigators of the day.

The simplistic beauty of the dial, matched only by the smooth, constant running seconds register, at the 9 o'clock position; the smooth sweep of the second-hand, afforded by the Asian, Unitas, mechanical-wound movement, with the beauty of the movement being put on display, thanks to an exhibition caseback.

This Parnis, Big Pilot, represents the great of affordable timepiece collecting; obtaining a piece with better-than-average build quality, at a price that doesn't come near to breaking the bank.

Complementing the Brown tones of the vintage-style strap, and matte Black dial, with a Tiger's-Eye, beaded bracelet, which has my Wrist-Game today flying aces!
