Join us today as we talk about one of the most iconic watch dials in history, the Pilot's Watch Dial. Generally, they come in two varieties, an A-Dial and a B-Dial. The A dial is a simpler, cleaner design, while the B dial, with its expanded minutes track, allows more accurate time telling.

These dials were specifically developed for the purposes of pilot legibility with the flieger watch design & characteristics still prevalent today.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
