Sure, you can look to the Swiss for a pilot watch with an exhaustive set of features. That is, if you’re willing to spend close (or right on) the neighborhood of five figures. If you just want the features, but don’t mind the lack of an elaborate movement underneath, you might want to check out the Citizen Promaster Navihawk GPS.
A serious-looking pilot watch, it comes with an incredibly busy dial and bezel that’s filled with markings, indicators, and all sorts of visual details. It looks utterly badass, complete with a burly 47mm case to back up the aesthetic, making it great for pairing with more rugged fare in your closet.
The Citizen Promaster Navihawk GPS watch is powered by the outfit’s Eco-Drive F900 movement, which uses solar power to keep the timepiece ticking without the need to mess with batteries. It can show the current time across any place in the world, with a Satellite Timekeeping System automatically adjusting it as soon as you enter a new time zone. Even better, it boasts the world’s fastest timekeeping signal reception speed, reflecting the change in as little as three seconds. Construction is silver-tone stainless steel for the case and sapphire for the crystal, with the band available in either leather, stainless steel, or the outfit’s Super Titanium material.
Features include a pilot’s rotating slide rule bezel, a 1/20th-second chronograph up to 24 hours, a perpetual calendar, a power reserve indicator, alarm, and dual time. It comes with 20 bars of water resistance, so it’s good for snorkeling and light diving.
Available now, the Citizen Promaster Navihawk GPS is priced starting at $1,295.
