Aerotec Ace Bronze Pilot Watch

If you’ve followed our coverage of watches here at The Coolector, you’ll likely be aware that we’ve got a particular penchant for pilot / aviation style timepieces and, for that reason, you’ll not be too surprised to hear we’ve fallen mighty hard for this majestic looking Aerotec Ace Bronze Pilot Watch which is funding over on Kickstarter as we speak. It aims to be a redefinition of a classic automatic bronze watch and it will develop a patina unique to you and the adventures you embark upon.

The Aerotec Ace Bronze Pilot Watch on Kickstarter has a pleasingly vintage look and feel that we’re big fans of here at Coolector HQ. The price tag during the crowdfunding campaign is another big tick in the positive column insomuch as you can currently get your hands on this exemplary looking timepiece for just £210 for the next 28 days or so. If you like what you see, it will pay to move quickly and secure the early bird pricing available on Kickstarter because the price goes up by around £130 after the campaign.


Pilot Perfection


So far as pilot watches go, the Ace Bronze Pilot Watch from Aerotec on Kickstarter is undoubtedly one of the classiest and most attractive we’ve seen in a while. It is a custom designed bronze pilot/dive watch, and every part of this adventure ready timepiece from Aerotec has been designed and built on the brand’s dedication to creating robust and well-designed timepieces that are both versatile and affordable for the consumer. This one just happens to look awesome as well. Win, win.

The Aerotec Ace Bronze Pilot Watch on Kickstarter (from £210) strives to keep things simple with a steady focus on reliability which, needless to say, is one of the most important characteristics in a watch meant to serve both pilots and divers alike. With stand out features such as a bronze pilot/bronze style case and vibrant dial colours, the Aerotec Ace Bronze also aims to offer tool watch lovers something a little different to boot.

In our opinion here at The Coolector, it is the dial of the Ace Bronze Pilot Watch that really sets it apart from the competition. For this magnificent looking timepiece from Aerotec, the dial is a circular, brushed sandwich dial with deep cut Arabic numbering and the cathedral style hands have been coated in C3 super-Luminova which provides excellent visibility in low light conditions such as those when flying or, indeed, diving. There are three different “burst” dial colourways to choose from – Vintage Blue, Vintage Brown and Vintage Beige – so you’re sure to find one that matches your taste persuasion when it comes to watches.


Majestic Materials Throughout


One of the things that makes the Aerotec Ace Bronze Pilot Watch’s affordability all the more impressive is the fact there is quality materials found throughout its crafting. This includes the CuSn8, which is a marine grade bronze alloy which has been chosen because of how well it patinas over time to really give your watch that worn in look and feel that showcases all the adventures you’ve been on.

Available for the extraordinary price of just £210 during the Kickstarter campaign, it’s not hard to see why the Aerotec Ace Bronze Pilot Watch has taken the crowdfunding platform by storm and already effortlessly surpassed its funding target. The watch uses the ever-reliable Seiko NH38A movement which is a self-winding automatic with a bi-directional rotor on the back which winds the timepiece so it will stay perpetually wound when you wear it. Make sure you don’t miss out on this bargain timepiece – head on over to Kickstarter now.
