Friday Outfit: Aircraft Pilot

Hello everyone!

We start September with a new theme in our Friday Outfit: all this month will be dedicated to professions. To begin with, we have chosen a profession of high-flying: aircraft pilot.

Today we show you automatic watches inspired by the aircraft pilot profession within other selected products.

Before seeing the chosen products to complete your style, we bring you some curiosities about the profession of aircraft pilot:

Aircraft pilots are the people who control the flight of an aircraft. Originally they were called aviators, especially in France, where the term airplane was born.

- The first use of the term aviator was in 1887, as a variation of the word "aviation"/avis in Latin, which means bird.

- Highly distinguishes in civilian and military pilots although there is a lot of permeability between both professional branches.

- In some countries, such as Pakistan, Thailand and some African nations, there is a close relationship between the army and the main national airlines, and many airline pilots come from the armed forces.

- The aircraft pilot is always the last one to leave the ship in case of accident. As stated in article 55, no pilot "will abandon an aircraft that has suffered an airplane accident" until "it verifies that the last passenger on board has left it, unless circumstances make it impossible".

- The aircraft pilot profession has a low female representation. In 2017, only 3% of the women were pilots, and only 450 of these have the rank of commander.

Below you will see some of the automatic watches that we have chosen for this blog along with the rest of the products in the image.

All the pieces are available in our website and in our boutique in C / Nuñez de Balboa, 90 Madrid. Do not hesitate to come and visit us whenever you wish. It will be a pleasure to welcome you!

Happy weekend!

Looked good on delivery, now looks great with black steel !

I'm really pleased with my new bronze metris...I hadn't seen one in real life due to lockdown but was pleased with it when it arrived. The blue face is really dark...almost black.....but contrasts really well with the bronze case and numerals. The standard leather strap was a little disappointing in colour and fit but £25 for a black steel bracelet and it now looks and feels great!!

I love this pen...perfect weight. Perhaps I would like a more chunkier one soon....still experimenting before i make a bigger purchase

Citizen Promaster NY0071-81E

As a large fan of dive watches, this mechanical promaster variant in titanium, does not disappoint. Exceptionally light, form, fit and function, absolutely fantastic. Much better attention to detail ( indices and rotating bezel alignment with chapter ring) than some Seiko comparable models.
Seemingly on paper a large watch, wears very well, not conspicuous at all in my 5 Ft 7 inch opinion. Great lime, long lasting and running at constant +10 seconds a day.
Definitely recommend this watch and the excellent customer experience of Iguana Sell.

Visconti Van Gogh Wheatfield with Crows Set

A very nice fountain pen feels very nice in the hand, comes well presented with a bottle of ink to start you off. I was kept fully informed of the progress of my order and as such I have ordered a second fountain pen.

Avi-8 P51 Mustang

This is my 2nd watch purchase from Iguana Sell. Due to unfortunate circumstances beyound Iguana Sells hands, I was kept in contact regarding the delivery of my P51 Mustang watch. Heavy snow as well as teething problems due to Brexit delayed delivery, but I have become quite patient over the past few months. The watch is amazing Avi-8 have surpassed themselves. I love the aviation theme previously buying their automatic Spitfire watch.
