What is a flieger watch?

Flieger is the German word for aviator or airplane. A flieger watch is just another way of saying “pilot watch”. Originally, flieger watches were used by the German Luftwaffe. Today, flieger watches tend to be aviation inspired, legible, and often minimalist in overall design.
