This black PVD version of the Commando Pilot is an exclusive to the Rotary Watches online store.
The Commando Pilot references all the attributes that one would find on a vintage tool pilot watch, built to aide a pilot in one way or another, including special features as well as exceptional durability and accuracy. A modern, distinctive pilot watch, the Commando has a robust 42mm case dimension, and oversized protruding screw-down crown, originally featured on the watch to help pilots in freezing cockpits operate them while wearing gloves.
The movement includes hacking seconds; a feature commonly used on field watches to synchronize time by stopping the movement of the second hand when adjusting the time. Once the time is set, the crown is pushed back in and the second hand resumes its movement.
The utilitarian dial design with large hands and bold numerals are lumed for legibility. Another clever design feature are the rivets on the sturdy aviation leather strap, originally these were placed there to ensure that the watch didn't slide or fly off the wrist whilst the pilot was in flight.
