Style Pick of the Week: Szanto Military Pilot Watch

A rugged, classically inspired timepiece with both functionality and style in spades.

We’ve talked about a lot of standout essentials over the past few weeks when it comes to accessories — from a vintage-inspired ballcap to a pair of stylish casual sneakers, so let’s talk now about what’s on your wrist. The Szanto Military Pilot Watch should be your answer this time around, my friends. If you’re looking for a tough, rugged and yet perfectly versatile timepiece to carry you through into spring, look no further than this classic military watch. Don’t let the term “classic” fool you into thinking this timepiece is a relic from another era — no, it’s got modern styling potential in spades.Ā  And spring really is a prime time to upgrade your watch game, as we shed layers and move toward wearing outerwear that allows you to show off some wrist action. Take the classic denim jacket, for instance. Throw on a short-sleeve henley, some timeless white leather sneakers and slim chinos, flip those jacket cuffs and rock theĀ Szanto Military Pilot Watch to that first warm-weather patio bar outing. You needn’t worry about the specs or dependability of theĀ Szanto Military Pilot Watch, either. At $250, it provides dependable value and sharp looks, plus added design features like a stainless steel case and two-chronograph functionality. That’s only the beginning, though.

It’s rare to find a watch with a hand-finished leather strap that costs what theĀ Szanto Military Pilot Watch costs — you simply don’t see that around. And the aesthetic, from the handsome black-and-tan combo to the sharp white markings, goes great with casual style essentials aplenty. It’s the right watch to wear when you rock something more pared-down (like an off-white pocket tee, dark indigo denim and suede chukka boots). Believe me, theĀ Szanto Military Pilot Watch stands out for all the right reasons. And when you fancy going a bit sharper, theĀ Szanto Military Pilot Watch works with easygoing office picks like an unstructured cotton blazer, a grey pocket tee and slim tan chinos. That’s as good as it gets when it comes to Casual Friday in my book. If you fancy a watch with some added toughness and durability, theĀ Szanto Military Pilot Watch offers a 46mm diameter — slightly large for some wrists, but at a decent middle ground for others. It’s likely that you don’t have a watch like this one in your collection, so theĀ Szanto Military Pilot Watch offers nice variety and versatility. What’s more, that price tag is more than agreeable. Can you go a season without adding theĀ Szanto Military Pilot Watch to your watch rotation? I’d wager not — and spring is as good a time as any to start with it.
