Clarity - Resilience - Simplicity. The Tisell watch from the Pilot model range offers all of these. Distinct digits and hands with an BGW9 luminescence provide excellent legibility. In the heart of this watch there is a Sea-Gull ST25 movement variation, which is placed in a stainless steel case. The movement features a so-called hacking function, halting the second hand while setting the time.
Due to the sapphire crystal, the watch will stay like new for a long time and will resist potential falls and sharp edges. In addition, the crystal is coated with an anti-reflexion finish, which provides better readability even in bright sunshine. The watch comes with an elegant leather strap.
A great choice for all aviation watches lovers.

Just received the Type B 43mm Pilots watch, here are my initial impressions. The watch arrived well packaged and in a reasonable timeframe. It comes in a nice black with white stitching pseudo leather box with Tisell embossed on the top. Inside the box you will find a small plain instruction booklet, two "leak checker" printouts, a business card, a soft cloth and the watch itself. Watch aside the package is nothing spectacular but quite respectable. At 43mm the watch is large at first glance and looks big on the wrist. My wrist is 7.5" and it is a good size, but on smaller wrists you definitely want to go with the 40mm version. The finish on the the case is nice and clean with no obvious defects. The crown looks smart, and matches the case and dial well. The hand winding had a rough feel to it and is nowhere as smooth as many of my other watches. The rotor is quite noisy when shaken but on daily wear its not that noticeable. Onto the dial itself, and it looks very nice and clean. The lack of a logo on the dial is interesting, but I don't mind it, this could be mistaken for a more expensive watch. The numbering is sharp and the white stands out very well. The blue borders on the hands are subtle and not that obvious at many angles. The sweep of the second hand is not as smooth as I would have preferred, which leads onto the movement which is visible through the case back. It's quite an attractive movement to look at, but it is too early to pass judgement on its performance. Unfortunately I had to remove the leather strap almost immediately. It was too small for my wrist and way to stiff and uncomfortable. That said, I replaced it with my soft black diver strap from my Sieiko Samurai SRPB53 and it works great. It has transformed the watch, and in my opinion has really lifted the appearance. So those are my initial impressions. Do I recommend this watch? For someone that is looking to get a solid, well made, entry level Pilot watch at a reasonable price, absolutely. Or if you are wanting to try out a Pilot watch before opting for something more expensive, then this is a good place to start. In both instances bear I my mind my comments above. I'm pleased with this purchase, I'm enjoying the watch and I recommend the the.seller.
