Default What's on your wrist?

Hey guys/gals... as the title implies, what's everyone wearing for a watch these days?

What are the features that you use on a daily basis, or would like to see on a timepiece marketed towards aviators? GMT, date, chrono, etc......

What are the features you think are overkill?

I went with the biggest dorkiest pilot watch I could find. Citizen Blue Angels. However, since there's so much metal in the tiny flight deck I'm in and don't want it scratched, I now wear a $20 Armitron (which keeps better time than any Rolex.)

I wear a Garmin D2 Pilot.




If you’re into piloting and like your watches as cool as possible, look no further than Garmin’s D2 Pilot watch ($449). Even in the crowded field of complex digital flight watches, the D2 stands out with a truly amazing set of features. Sporting an accurate WAAS GPS receiver along with an altimeter and compass, the 49mm-wide D2 can manage direct-to and nearest routing via an on-board worldwide airport database. Speed, waypoint, flight plans, ETA, active mapping, bearing and glide ratio are all available, along with a view of up to six time zones. It can even communicate with a number of external Garmin devices to keep additional flight information ready at a glance. It’s a remarkable, pure flight tool.

No. A watch that has WAAS is not cool.

Yes it is. I could use it as an emergency backup to navigate if I were to experience a total FMC failure.
