Sinn Flieger 356 Pilot’s Watch

Sinn Flieger's 356 pilot's watch

What distinguishes the style of a pilot’s watch; a term branded around easily but what does it really mean? Well, aside from the obvious, it encompasses a certain look that has been carved out of a long association with aviation. In today’s market, a pilot’s watch can be both fit for the skies and everyday wear.

A review of the Sinn Flieger's 356 pilot's watch

Sinn Flieger’s 356 Pilot (pictured here) fits more into the everyday watch camp, encompassing many of the style features generally associated with the term. This particular model was based on a streamlined version of its 256 pilot’s chronograph and the hour, minute and second hands are coated with a long-lasting luminous paint, as are the Arabic numerals, for easy reading. With a self-winding mechanical movement, visible through the open case back, along with shock and pressure resistant qualities it is a pretty sturdy and robust piece.

What attributes make a pilot's watch, such as this Sinn Flieger model

We talk a lot about function and complications on the blog, but it’s not always about this when it comes to choosing a watch – sometimes you want a luxury watch for its style, as much as its subtance.


  • Larger size (between 38 to 55mm) to allow the watch to fit over a flying jacket
  • Clear dial with Arabic numerals, so it is easily legible at a glance
  • Contrast dial to hands (black on white or white on black for example)
  • Larger crown (to operate when wearing gloves)
  • Simple and reliable movement
