Powering the Aviator is the Orient automatic mechanical in house caliber 46943 movement, which is also the same movement inside the popular Mako and Ray series. It celebrated its 40th anniversary a few years ago and remains as one of the longest produced movements from Orient Watch. The 46943 movement includes both day and date complication displayed at the 3 o’clock position. The dials on the Aviator are all high contrast to increase readability. The Aviator is a pilot watch with a touch of diver watch functionality and comes with a unidirectional bezel and three lumed hands. The case size is 43mm which is perfect for a pilot watch and the case has a 100m water resistance. You can opt for either a leather strap or stainless steel bracelet!

Now lets take a closer look at each model of the Aviator!

Aviator FEM7A008R and FEM7A006R

First off, lets take a look at the two standout features of the Aviator FEM7A008R: the all lumed dial and the leather band. With the entire dial being lumed (aside from the arabic indexes) a silhouetted look is created with the arabic numerals against the bright lume and greatly increases legibility at night. The black leather band has the classic pilot style contrast stitching and cross stitching. The FEM7A006R, which features the same fully lumed dial as the FEM7A008R, is mounted on a solid brushed stainless steel bracelet, which can be much more durable than a simple leather band when dealing with water.

Aviator FEM7A005B and FEM7A003B

Now lets take a look at the most classic version of the Aviator, reference numbers: FEM7A005B and FEM7A003B. These Aviator models features the classic matte black dial, with large lumed arabic numerals for easy and quick reference in low light. Another standout feature is that the EM7A005B is mounted on a solid brushed stainless steel band that also has a double push button foldover clasp with a safety. The EM7A003B is mounted on a black leather pilot strap with contrast stitching.

Aviator FEM7A005D

This version of the Aviator is very unique. What is so special is the blue dial, which is quite unusual, but very fitting. Typically pilot watches have black dials, but in low light the blue appears almost black. In the sunlight, the teal appears much brighter but the yellow-green numerals still provide great contrast against the blue dial for optimal legibility.
