Old School Pilot Watch –Chotovelli

Vintage-Style Aviator Watches For The Modern Man

There are a lot of affordable but generally crappy watches out there. You can tell they’re cheap just by looking at them. Not so with the new Chotovelli&Figli Navigator Watch. The refined but vintage flieger watch design uses ultra legible Arabica numerals, the dial is clean and sharp looking while the hands are fully luminous like most watches from that genre. A watch in this class usually goes for about $300 timepiece.

The Navigator makes use of slim and curved wired lugs for a cleaner look. And lest you think they’ve scrimped on materials quality to keep the price low, the Navigator case is made of 316L stainless steel, the movement is Japan made Seiko auto-sweep movement which ticks and moves just like an automatic, the strap is full-grain Calfskin Italian leather.

There are also three shiny and matt finish dial colors: Silk Grey, Dreamer’s Black, and vintage Beige, all of which will look proper with both casual and semi-formal wear (even black-tie with the black/silver colorway). The Kickstarter campaign is going live in 2 weeks (5.15.2020), and you can get a super Early Bird price of $95 before the price climbs to $190, which is still a real bargain.
