Watch of the day (WOTD)

What's my wrist-wear choice for today?

My Flavor Of The Day

Vanguard, Victorville Pilot

Slowly but surely getting into the spirit of the holiday season, finally getting our fresh-cut, white pine Christmas tree, up into the stand. Figured I would take the opportunity for a quick, Saturday wrist-check, photo-op, with the Vanguard, Victorville Pilot, before the tree-trimming festivities begin.

The Vanguard features a very simple, and clean dial, epitomizing everything that a classic pilot watch should be. I love the sand colored numerals and hands, against the matte-Black dial, which adds to the clarity, and easy readability of the dial. The inclusion of the Gray strap was a bit of a question mark for me, but it just seems to work really well. There was an Army Green, textile strap included with the kit, which I fully expected to immediately change-out, but the Gray strap has grown on me.

As an accessory to the Victorville Pilot today, I've opted for the SoHo bracelet, designed by Dorsal Bracelet Company, proving to be the perfect match to the Sand colors, prominently displayed throughout the dial.
