Hemel HFT20 Chronograph Watch Review

I'll admit that it doesn't take much to get me excited when it comes to what most would call a typical "pilot's style" watch. While the archetype itself has indeed taken on many forms throughout history – stretching from the Cartier Santos to the mighty Navitimer – the spirit they share is ultimately the same; whether you're scrounging for hours in a Skyhawk with a dicey cockpit door, flying long-haul cargo routes, or taking the Gulfstream to Vegas for the weekend. It's just something I'm drawn to, and there's no shortage options. Admittedly, like dive watches, the true utility is questionable these days – even though it doesn't really matter and 90% of the professional pilots I've worked with wear quartz Citizen watches anyway. But, there's always room for something fun along with watches like this Hemel HFT20 Chronograph, which offers a modern, accessible, and low-maintenance adaptation the Type 20 designs rooted in the 1950s.

A very possibly accurate conversation at Ablogtowatch's corner office:

REL: Hey, Penate, get the fuck in here.

Michael Penate: You bet, bahz!

REL: Shut the fuck up. OK, some shit brand sent me this piece of shit watch. "Hemel", something like that. Funny, I thought they only made canned chili. Anyway, they also included a money order for $487, which is, paradoxically, the exact amount for replacing the right front Pirelli on my AMG Merc that I busted on a curb. So we gotta do a review. You wanna get outta the fucking mail room?

Michael Penate: You bet, bahz!

REL: Good. So you write the fucker up. Don't make it gushing, it's only a fucking micro that nobody gives a shit about, but their money's a green as anybody's, right?

Michael Penate: You bet, bahz!

REL: So get me some copy and pics by the end of the week. But before you do that, I plugged up the fucking toilet in my private bathroom. Get your ass in there and plunge out my fucking toilet. And step lively, you prole, you savvy?

Michael Penate: You bet, bahz!

THE END

The watch doesn't blow. The review does.
