Guys, if you’re in the market for a watch with attitude, aviation watches are trending now. Or, if you’re more of the rugged, outdoorsy type, military watches are hot sellers.
Both of these styles have historically served specific niche markets. As their names imply, the aviator watch was initially made with the aviation industry in mind. Military watches were designed to hold up under extreme conditions that military men face daily.
Aviation watches were designed with pilot needs in mind, such as the ability to endure extremes in temperature and moisture. Typically, the aviator watch will have provisions to tell the time in various time zones and afford a clear digital display.
Generally, this man’s style watch is a little larger than most so that accurate visibility is ensured. The majority have a black face, with contrasting hands. Ideally, the aviator watch will display a barometer and altimeter.
Military watches, like military men, must be military tough! They should be durable enough to withstand worldwide weather conditions and still keep ticking. Many military watches are constructed from stainless steel, with scratch-resistant faces. The dials are not busy so that they can be read effortlessly.
As you can see, military watches don’t require and technically should avoid the bells and whistles included on aviation watches. This originally came about because a watch that beeps during battle could cause catastrophes.
Now that you have the general idea about these two, in-your-face big watches, your question is likely whether or not you can afford to get one. With a small caveat, yes you can!
