Watch of the day (WOTD)

What's my wrist-wear choice for today?


My Flavor Of The Day

Zeno-Watch Basel, Pilot

Within my collection, I'm all about watches that are unconventional and different, because I desire to have a collection of timepieces that not only speak to my individual taste, but may also be something that other collectors haven't seen with any regularity, inspiring uniqueness within other collections as well.


My Friday selection, the Zeno-Watch Basel, Pilot, easily satisfies my aforementioned requirements. This timepiece features a one-hand display, something you don't see very often, and even more rare for a Pilot watch. Of course, being a Pilot watch, this watch is a contradiction, and bit of an oxymoron; One of the requisites for a Pilot watch, is having a clean, legible dial configuration and display. A one-hand watch, makes it a little challenging to discern the time, hours and minutes, at a quick glance. So in reality, this piece wouldn't be of much practical use as a Pilot watch, but contains a unique, fun movement nonetheless.


It's widely known, that the simplest of mods, a strap change, can switch-up the entire look and attitude of a timepiece. When I came across the Nato that the Pilot currently resides on, I knew it would finish the look of this Flieger perfectly. In actuality, the look came out even better than I expected.


Blue and White take flight, with my choice of accessory as well, pairing the Zeno-Watch with a custom-crafted bracelet, designed by Beads By Gonzo; a Flying Ace combination if I've ever seen one.
