The Bussora Nero Pilot Watches (€189) come in three different iterations and colours – namely, Verde, Nero and Cioccolato – and each has its own unique visual impact on the wrist but the same high end components and craftsmanship. The majestic looking watches from Bussora are going to appeal to those with a love of aviation history. Before the invention of the first aircrafts at the beginning of the 20th century, pocket watches were the way to go. However, after the first flights in the history of mankind, the pioneers of aviation wanted to track the time without the hassle of grabbing a watch out of their inner pocket.
To solve this problem, a number of watch manufacturers began to develop timepieces that could been worn around the wrist, making sure that pilots could keep their hands on the yoke. These first watches were essentially pocket watches equipped with wire lugs on both sides, and strapped to the wrist with a leather strap. Pilots began wearing their watches on a regular basis and because of the fame and respect pilots earned, civilians also started to wear wristwatches instead of pocket watches – this is where these Nero Pilot Watches from Bussora get their design inspiration and they are a knowing nod to the early days of aviation.
