Give Away For Pilots: PME Leather Pilot Jacket And The Ray-Ban Aviator Large Metal

Have you seen our GMT-Master History article last week? Besides a lot of Rolex GMT-Master watches, an airplane and a pilot there were also a leather pilot jacket (by PME) and a pair of Ray-Ban Aviator sunglasses included in some of the pictures.

We are GIVING THEM AWAY for FREE! Thanks to  PME Legend (Bataviastad) and Bon Art opticians (Houten).

The Ray-Ban Aviator pair of sunglasses are considered to be the classic pilot one’s that will (nowadays) suit both him and her. With its green Bausch & Lomb G-15 glasses and gold frame it will perfectly match with every thing in your wardrobe and will protect you from the sun of course.

Give Away For Pilots: PME Leather Pilot Jacket And The Ray Ban Aviator Large Metal

As you can see above, Dennis of the Fratello team is wearing a PME Pilot jacket and the matching pair of Ray-Ban RB3025 glasses. You are able to win a similar jacket in size L and the same pair of Ray-Ban Aviator Large Metal sunglasses, together worth an impressive amount of money that you probably have (or had to) spent during the Holidays last month. Please note that Dennis is not included in the Give Away.

    Its a very groovy post indeed. Especially the nostalgic pilot look with the cool glasses (that would actually look cooler on me). So hard to choose 1 watch. I have a GMT master and a Navitimer but I’d most of all like an IWC Flieger for its simple lines. And I have a big Zeno thing the size of a frying pan. But even thoug I couldn’t fly a kite let alone a plane, its OK to still look the part….

    My fav is the iwc big pilot…soo cool

    I’m kind of disappointed that Dennis isn’t included. As for pilot watches, there are many I like however lately I’m searching for a Rolex GMT-Master 1675 from 1971

  19. Lassi Pappinen Reply

    I gotta say that my favourite is the Longines Lindbergh watch. But also the Rolex GMT-master II has stolen my heart…

    Great article on the GMT’s and even greater pictures!
    For this contest I do like the Ray Ban Aviator which originates from 1937 which also links to the best pilot watch IMHO: the IWC 3717. And again these two number 3 & 7 correponds to a great year 1973 ;-)

    Thanks for a great history of the GMT Master line! I always enjoy reading the details of the evolution of historical watches. I would say that my favorite (also historical) pilot watch would have to be the Omega Speedmaster (first watch on the moon).

    Thanks again, and keep the articles coming!!

    I love the photos on this site. As a watch fanatic with little money it’s always nice drool over watches I could never afford ;-). Keep it up!
    The Navitimer is my favorite pilot’s watch. For me it breathes aviation and is equal to aviation history. If my budget allows it in the coming years I will definitely buy one.

    The 5 original 55mm and the Glashutte Senator Navigator!

  62. Randy_Torres Reply

    Great giveaway! I think if I were an actual pilot and I really needed a good pilot watch I would have to go with a Citizen Skyhawk, yup quartz with all kinds of digital doodabs. You ractically have to be a flight engineer to actually use one. If I actually just want to be cool, and want to blow my all my savings, I would go with one of those new IWC Top Guns. Since I’m a sensible working stiff and I’m NOT a pilot , I’m going to go with a Christopher Ward MK1.

  63. Marc Alberts Reply

    While I do like the IWC Big Pilot, I have recently been swayed by the Glashutte Original Senator Navigator WorldView that it should be the pilot watch I get if I do get one.
