This month, aBlogtoWatch will be giving away a very special pilot’s chronograph known as the Tockr Air Defender. Hailing from Austin, Texas, Tockr is a brand founded by a team that is both passionate about aviation and high quality timepieces. The Air Defender is the brand’s modern interpretation of a classic aviator’s chronograph, which is fully purpose-built and ready for anything. Most notably, this recent iteration features a gradient silver and green dial that still hasn’t been officially released by the brand.

The design of the Tockr Air Defender centers around the tried and true Valjoux 7750 automatic chronograph movement. This layout provides the wearer with a range of easily legible information and a clear readout that will suit anyone with a love for tool watches. Paired with the silver and green dial, this watch delivers an aesthetic that is unlike any other pilot’s watch currently on the market. The stainless steel case is 45mm in diameter, features a sapphire crystal, and provides 100m of water resistance. In essence, it’s everything most people would need in a sports watch and this one has a price of $1,850 USD. You can enter to win one now by following the instructions below.

Good luck, and thanks to Tockr Watches, sponsor of the Tockr Air Defender Chronograph giveaway here at aBlogtoWatch!

I can’t enter to win (too associated with ABTW for that) but my suggestion is an altimeter. For unpressuried aircraft it is a rough back-up device and for pressurized planes it will show you cabin altitude. Like a depth gauge on dive watches in reverse (sort of).

Trying to think of a complication that hasn’t already been done in a pilot’s watch is tricky, since the most obvious ones already exist. I’ll take a stab at it though; how about a dosimeter of some sort? We know that during flight, we are exposed to far more radiation than on the ground, and in the case of solar flare activity that is probably worse. Perhaps not much of a danger for tourists but pilots are up there all the time. It might be nice to know at what setting you’re being cooked. 180 pounds, 7 minutes per pound, carry the one…

I’d try to develope a love window. A window at 12 o’clock were every hour a different tiny picture from one of your loved ones will appear. Just to remind you to tell them every day that you love them.

Say, how about a sensor to measure blood oxygen levels to warn against hypoxia? I like this watch, by the way. I follow the company on FB and they seem very genuine.

I like it, it looks nice and the bright green which fades as out from the center gives it a touch of class. For me personally I have to like a watch and to want to wear it. It has sapphire crystal glass both front and back and is water resistant which is a must in my mind. I like the leather strap and would enjoy owning this watch. I think its a winner.

I would opt for a Love Window, because Watch lovers are People Lovers. At 12 o’clock there will be a little window (normally for the date) where every hour a new tiny picture of a loved one appears. To remind you who’s in your heart and that you need to tell them that every day.

The pilots complication I’d think would be interesting would be distance to next turn/distance to destination.

Out of all the watches ABTW has offered in a give a way this is my favorite! I like the look, layout of this one a lot, this is right in my favorite size zone, even the color choice looks great. Would be great to have this on my wrist!!! As far as I would go for adding something I haven’t seen on a pilots watch I have to say some sort of altimeter would be great. Maybe a good compass attached to the strap in case the one in the plane fails? O2 sensor? Not sure what else that could easily be incorporated in a watch that would keep it small enough to be comfortable on the wrist.

A complication with a Gyro Horizon. Not sure it would be super useful unless you’re a fighter pilot and your instruments stop working…You said the sky’s the limit right? No matter how crazy right?
