这些是我们一想到飞行员风格的必备品。

Today we’re going to talk about aviation watches. 今天我们要谈的是航空用的手表。

As a pilot in the US Air Force I’ve always had a keen interest in aviators’ watches and I’m going to share my insights and observations to help you choose your ideal timepiece.

作为一名美国空军飞行员 我一直对航空手表很感兴趣。这里我将分享我的见解,帮助你选择理想的表。

Origins Of The Aviator Watch

飞行员手表的起源

The earliest watches worn by pilots were simply repurposed field watches. They had to be accurate, of course and they had to be readable under low-light conditions.

最早的行员佩戴航空手表只是特殊领域专用手表必须准确在低光条件下可读。

Field watches, with their hand-wound movements and black dials with large white numerals satisfied both of these requirements.

那时航空手表用表带挽手腕,黑色表盘和大白色数字指针仅仅满足这些要求。

Over time, air forces around the world began to develop watches with specific aviation functions.

随着时间的推移,世界各地的空军开始开发具有特定航空功能的手表。

In the 1930s the Luftwaffe developed the Flieger style of watches: the Type-A with simple numerals and delta index at 12 o’clock, and the Type-B with large minutes in the outer dial and hours in the inner dial.

在上世纪30年代的德国空军开发出新风格的手表:用A型简单的数字和十二点三角指数,分针外拨和时针内拨。

The original Type-Bwas a massive 55mm and was issued to navigators who needed precise timing for dead-reckoning navigation: finding a target by flying solely referencing time and magnetic heading.

最初的B型表盘是55mm,发给谁需要航位推算精确定时导航的航海家,以便找到一个飞行过程中用于参考时间和磁航向的目标。

Three of the five original manufacturers still produce fliegers today. Laco, Stowa and IWC. They aren’t huge anymore though, they’ve been scaled down from the massive original watch.

今天,原厂商还生产弗利格斯。Laco、Stowa和万国。比起以前样子,它们已经缩小了。

Lacos Type-As are available in quartz or Japanese automatic movements. TheLaco Paderborn Type-Bis their flagship offering in Swiss automatic with traditional thermal blued steel hands

Lacos Type石英系列和日本自动机芯机械表Laco Paderborn Type-B是瑞士自动旗舰产品,传承其传统热蓝钢的手表风格。

Stowa watches are only available directly from their website. They produce traditional Fliegers with Swiss automatic movements.

STOWA手表只可直接从他们的网站供应。他们生产的传统弗利格斯瑞士自动机械表

IWC is a Swiss luxury manufacturer. Their Fliegers are modern updates to the Type-A. Expect to spend between $4,000 and $15,000 for an IWC.

IWC是瑞士奢侈品制造商。他们的弗利格斯现代更新版的type-A型款式,预计售价4000美元15000美元之间

The Space Race & Aviator Watches

太空竞赛的飞行员手表

In the jet-age, as pilots found themselves flying across multiple time zones a new requirement emerged.

在喷气时代,当飞行员发现自己在多个时区飞行时,一个新的需求出现了。

In order to standardize global operations, airlines and air forces began coordinating operations based on Greenwich Mean Time, aka GMT or Zulu time.

为了规范全球业务,航空公司和航空部队开始协调行动,以格林尼治的平均时间,又名GMT或祖鲁时间。

In response, Rolex developed the GMT Master II featuring two hour hands, one corresponding to the traditional 12-hour watch face on the dial and the other synchronized to a 24-hour bezel.

为此,劳力士开发的格林尼治II具有两个时区的手,一个对应于传统的12小时表盘,同时和同步24小时挡板。

This allowed pilots to track flight time with the Zulu bezel and still use the local timezone while on the ground.

这使飞行员与祖鲁边框轨道飞行时间,在地面上时候仍然使用本地时区。

Once the space race got into full swing and astronauts became celebrities, watch manufacturers were quick to advertise the watches that NASA selected for use in space.

一旦太空竞赛进入全面展开,宇航员成为名人,手表制造商很快登广告的手表是美国宇航局选择在太空中使用的款式。

The most famous such watch is theOmega Speedmaster Professional.

最著名的此类手表欧米茄超霸专

Ed White wore his personal Speedmaster during the first space walk and NASA then selected it as the standard issue watch for the Apollo program.

Ed White穿着他的个人手表首次太空行走,然后选择它作为美国宇航局的阿波罗计划的标准问题

The Digital Age & Aviator Watches

数字时代与飞行员手表

Aviation watches can vary from super-minimal displays which provide a very quick read, to feature heavy watches which have a lot of complications.

航空手表可以超精细显示,可以非常快速阅读,特殊功能的重型手表有很多的并发症。

The three versions: the Navihawk, Skyhawk and Nighthawk all feature multiple time zones, solar quartz movements, 1/100s chronographs and their most distinctive feature, the circular slide rule.

三版本:该Navihawk,天鹰和夜鹰的所有功能,多个时区,太阳能石英机芯,1/100计时,他们最显著的特征,圆形计算尺。

The circular slide rule, or “whiz wheel” is a tool used by pilots to perform all kinds of time/fuel/distance calculations and unit conversions. It can be an extremely useful feature if you know what you are doing and knowing how to use one is a sign of credibility among aviators.

圆形计算尺,或“齿轮”是一个工具,用于飞行员进行各种时间/燃料/距离计算和单位转换。它可以是一个非常有用的功能,如果你知道什么你正在做的和知道如何使用一个飞行员可信度的标志。

The Hawks are complicated, in fact some would say they are too busy. Their metal case designs and link bracelets or optional leather bands make them suitable for business and casual occasions, while their rugged design means they can stand up to outdoor or active use as well.

Hawks系列表是复杂的,事实上,有些人会说,他们太忙了。他们的金属外壳设计和链接手镯或可选的皮革带,使他们适合商务和休闲场合,而它继承坚固耐用的设计意味着他们适用于户外或常用。

In my experience, airplane pilots tend to prefer Skyhawks, while the Nighthawk is favored by helicopter pilots.

在我的经验中,飞行员往往喜欢Skyhawks,而奈特霍克是直升机飞行员的青睐。
