    Dear fellow member, being a huge fan of pilot watches B4B19473-FFCB-478D-A598-21C83783D986.gif (issued or aviation related), I would love to see yours, both for my own guilty pleasure and future inspiration.

    But no more chitchat, let the pics do the talking :

    What a rotten sport.
    So many beautiful pieces and the chance to only give one like. There ought to be an OF rule on this “one watch, one post”.

    Does it count if one part of the watch has actually been in space - or more appropriately put - come flying in from space?

    I've bought a lot of pilot watches, but now I own four:

    The one I flew with for 20 years:

    Two custom Bremonts:

    And a custom watch modeled after the A-13 8 Day clock in many airplanes:

    Here's a rundown of what I have bought and sold:
