Swiss Replica Watches For Sale
I had to look up pilot replica watches sale, as the design of the Marc & Sons Pilot does seem familiar, but I could not think of what brand. While we are all familiar with the IWC and Laco brand watches, this does not seem to be an homage of them, at least not a direct homage or ripoff. I will state I can not say with certainty that this is not a direct homage of something, I just am not familiar with it, or can not remember. Either way, lets delve into why this might be one of the better pilot style watches you can buy for the price.
With a 44mm by 52mm case size, the Marc & Sons pilot is large, but not over sized like some pilot watches tend to be. Watch trends and the people that buy watches tend to be polar opposites at times and pilot style watches have gone from sizes like 56mm wide to 40mm wide as we see today with some brands. There are guys out there who love a massive pilot watch and others who want something more subdued. This example lies somewhere in between and gives the best of both worlds; large and easy to read and comfortable on most wrists. A fine brushed satin finish is given to the entire case with the exception of the center of the screw down crown. Yes, I said screw down crown, something that sometimes is overlooked on non dive style Swiss replica watches. An odd style case, at least to me, as it is not completely round nor is it a cushion style, but kind of a meshing of both. Odd, and yet it works.As you can see in the photo above, the Marc & Sons Pilot has a slightly domed sapphire crystal. For those that rarely have taken photos of watches, or have just not seen that many, crystals can be a pain in the, well, ass. Or in reality, a pain in the eye, because when a crystal is very domed, it makes it harder to capture the dial properly, and of course the different types of AR coating, or lack thereof, have a hand in that as well. I would say this pilot watch is somewhere in the middle of that, while not the best crystal/AR combo I have seen, it is not the worst either, and for the most part I was able to capture the dial as it truly is.
My one major gripe about the dial? The cheesy plane printed on the dial. I am just not one for gimmicks like this one a watch face, and feel the traditional triangle or 12 would have been more than adequate and most everyone would know it is a pilot style watch. Other than that, a good, legible dial, with large numerals, wide hour and minute hands and a red tipped second hand for contrast.I have said this ad nauseam, I am not fond of exhibition case backs on watches with plain, base movements. I mean, I get it to a point. Many brands have even explained why they do it: not everyone who buys a watch, is a watch nut. And that makes sense. Someone who is a novice, or has not seen or owned countless watches just thinks it it cool to have a case back that allows you to see the movement and the inner workings of their wristwatch. For me, I would prefer a solid case back when using the Seiko NH35 or the Miyota 9015, as is used in this Marc & Sons Pilot. While I know that may sound overly picky, I see it all the time and while I do love the Miyota 9015 for its smoothness and accuracy, I would rather it be covered up. The good news is, it is a 9015 for around $300, something that is becoming rarer these days with the price hike and 6 month wait for the movement itself.
