Pilot's Watches

Big "pilot's watches" seem to be the "in" thing nowadays. What decorates the wrists of you real aviators?

Well the other half used to have a tall blond!

Now he only has a very very expensive Big shiny one to adorn his arm!

Why should real pilots need to wear watches these days?! The instrument panel on the cheapest Ford has an accurate clock...

Not worn a watch for almost two years....

I think your mind and body become accustomed to the time of day without refering to the thing on your arm ( no not Mrs TIM!!).

Go on test me... ask me the time.

In the fashion of " Little Britain"

Yeah but, no but, yeah but, no but, yeah....

It takes a week or so to adjust to BST.

Question about time,

Those Ppruners who live on, or around an international date line..... do you or can you exploit the time difference for being late for work or early home?

The time at the third stroke is.... 15-15 and 30 seconds

beep beep beep.
