Does the American Aviator Watch Work?Not everyone is into collectibles, but when it comes to something like the American Aviator Watch that depicts a part of our history, then it is something that almost every man will appreciate.

Overview
The American Aviator Watch was originally made for the USAF, so pilots would have a time piece that was precision made and accurate for them to be able to count on. This could be imperative for the many missions that were carried out in the second world war. It is an impressive looking analogue watch. It has glow in the dark features and clearly read hour, minute and second hand components. The wristband is made of a well constructed nylon that is comfortable to wear. It has a face that it is a little larger than some of the other watches constructed during this time.

The Claim
The promoters claim that this watch was constructed with its precision and accuracy because of the heavy responsibility that was placed upon it during the missions carried out during the 2nd world war. Missions had to be carried out to the split second, and pilots needed a time piece that would allow them to do this. It also had to be durable and be able to withstand the rigors of war. This current timepiece is expected to meet these standards.

The Hype
With the history behind this watch it adds a special significance to it. This is what makes it an ideal gift for any man whether they have a military background or not. Even those that are really not into collectibles, show a deep respect for the history this watch depicts.

The Cost
This American Aviator Watch is being offered for $39.95 and this includes the shipping. Included in your order you will also get a World War II booklet, a collector’s case and a certificate of authenticity. This entire package really makes an impressive yet affordable gift.

The Commitment
No doubt you always have some man on your gift giving list, and they are not always easy to buy for. The great feature about this watch is that it can be worn with pride, or simply put on display. It really is appropriate for the young man, or the older senior. It would most like hold a special meaning for any war time veterans or those serving in the military now.

Evaluation
The American Aviator Watch is really not glitzy but it has a clean, strong and durable look to it. It certainly would compliment any attire that it would be worn with. It is well made and is reported as being scratch and water resistant. This is important for the men who are on the go.

Final American Aviator Review

We’re prepared to give this watch a Thumbs Up review. It is a modern day version of the original and classic aviator’s watch, and is being offered at a very reasonable price. There are several other versions of Aviator’s watches on the market and over all they seem to be getting decent reviews. This particular watch has the individual numbers laser etched onto it which adds to its impressive look.

Our Recommendation
You really may want to consider ordering a couple of these and putting them away until you need a men’s gift for a special occasion. Watches are not always an easy item to pick out as a gift, but this one just about fits any man’s lifestyle. Another time piece that we found to be of interest to many was the Timex Ameritus, which has a slightly dressier look.

What do you think? Does the American Aviator Watch work or not?

There was no USAF during WWII! The Army Air Corps flew the missions, and the USAF was born in 1947, well after the war — please get the facts right 🙂

Reply

USAAF November 4, 2015 at 10:08 am

D Con…… You are only partially correct.

Though the United States Air Force (USAF) was not founded until September of 1947, it was the United States Army Air Forces (also the Navy and USMC) that flew WW2 missions, not the Army Air Corps.

The Air Service, United States Army, existed from May of 1918 through July 02, 1926. The Air Service was superseded by United States Army Air Corps (USAAC), which was in turn replaced by the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) on June 20, 1941.

The United States did not enter the Second World War until the Japanese attack on Oahu in December of 1941, so U.S. aerial operations of WW2 were not carried out by the USAAC.

I received mine today. It was one of our novelty gifts we give to each other on our wedding anniversary so we don’t break the bank. For the price, I like the look and feel of the watch. I won’t mind wearing it every day, as I keep my more expensive watches that are rarely worn in a jewelry box. The fact that it’s made in China is just a reminder that we have forced manufacturers to leave the U.S. because of our high corporate tax rate and choking regulations.

Reply

Rob December 22, 2015 at 9:54 am

China is also a reminder of what can happen when corporations are handed carte blanche to run ragged over environmental laws and fair wage practices. Unless you are living under a rock you know that these corporations operate with a sweat shop mentality and the air in many parts of China is literally unbreathable. Corporations can hop from one underdeveloped nation to an other until each host nation has had enough and excises the parasitic corporation.
Eventually theses companies will have to return and set up shop in the developed Western World and comply with environmental guidelines, fair wage and compensation and humane working conditions.
They could put out a quality product at higher price that will offset the “onerous” restrictions placed on them. Except now their own employees can afford to buy the products they have paricipated in producing with pride in the USA. That formula worked very well for Henry Ford.

Reply

Dwight December 27, 2015 at 8:31 pm

I don’t like it any more than you do but you can’t simultaneously say corporations are running roughshod over whackjob environmental laws and criticize them for leaving. All this “environmental guidelines, fair wage and compensation and humane working conditions” is just code for more socialism, which gets defeated at every turn. Until common sense is restored to American business, and out despotic government gets out of the way, you can expect more of the same.

Probably the same fine quality as the crappy razor for $19.95. Oh yeah, plus $12.00 shipping for a 4 oz.package. Not nearly the quality of the old Gillette double edge razors that sold for like $3.95. Rick Harrison is nothing but a whore. Spend $50 to $100 bucks and buy a cheap Invicta from Evine. Their cheaper watches are assembled in Thailand, but at least they use Swiss components. When they do use an Asian movement they buy them from TMI, a division of Seiko. (quality stuff)

Unfortunately all things are made in China.Look at the facts, if I was “big business” I would move my plant out of the country. Thanks to our policies and UNIONS, they have a choke hold on our industry,
However, slowly, some of them are coming back b because the countries they’re in are corrupt and manipulate their currency,
You already know all of that. Americans, on the other hand, have lowered their standard from quality to junk. Shame on us.
After reading all revues, I think I’ll wait. I like the look of the watch and I like the features, a watch that glows in the dark and has large numbers for old veterans to see.
I’ll take it back even further. Why not have these features and a watch that needs winding. Don’t have to depend on batteries.

Reply

dave December 20, 2015 at 7:19 am

Agree with your comments, but still avoid buying China made products whenever possible, even if it means paying more.
The other thing is I think it should be a wind up watch also, like it no doubt was back in the day.

Unfortunately it’s a product and a sad commentary on the reality of our times.

Here’s hoping for a return to more AMERICAN made products in the near future

Gimme a break. Any business that’s relocated out of country was almost certainly highly profitable before they left. The greed lies with upper management,stockholders,fund managers and the like that just can’t be happy. Plenty of countries have well paid workforces,Unionized ones in fact,in which their ownership & management does not expect to squeeze and hoard every single ounce of profit. That without which,their employees,would not occur. Japan,Germany,just to name a couple. South Korea is becoming more Unionized now,and other emerging economies,including china will once again follow. The working folks of the world are tired of getting shit on. Americans,both Unionized and not so have unfortunately becoming too complacent in thinking another job was waiting on the next block. America is on the cusp of another Labor revolution. Turn off fox and learn the facts.

My advice is to buy a Citizen BM8180 Eco Drive. It sells for $99 on Amazon and keeps perfect time has day and date and resembles the watch hawked by Rick Harrison. By the way it does glow in the dark without shinning a light on it. No winding and no batteries to buy .

Reply

william kochman January 2, 2016 at 1:42 am

Bought a Citizen Eco Drive mil. style watch for some $90 several years ago. By far best watch I have ever owned, even surpassing a Korean War era Rolex from a USN PX. Understand Swiss watches, < SF15K , must have by law at least a 50% Swiss value content which can equate to Swiss case or rotor of domestic manufacture. Swiss labor just to install these items can in some cases be their only content. Movements in this price range are typically hi quality Chinese @ $20-$39 ea.! ; as are the hi end optics often found in German and Japanese cameras. Pay a fair price for true value, and supply your own high end QC for a great Chinese product, every time!.

LASVEGASGOOD GUY December 9, 2015 at 11:49 pm

I saw this late night ad on TV, and I was very tempted to order a watch. But several things didnt add up.
Nowhere on the commercial did they give any details about the mechanical details of the watch. Is it electric, electronic, or standard wind up? How could it possibly be that inexpensive and be of any quality? Where was it made? What is the case made of? Stainless steel? pot metal? Plastic? Omitting important backup details usually means it is junk. Buyer beware, no matter who is doing the selling, omitting important details usually means the worst.
Once again our local boys made good sold out to the almighty dollar. How sad.

It won’t keep a charge on the face for seeing at night or darkness. It’s cheesy at best and promoted by a cheap prostitute with no ethical morals apparently.

I just read many of the reviews for “this fine watch” that Rick is endorsing, and I have come to the conclusion that he’s only interested in lending his name to it for money in his pocket and nothing else. Of course after reading many of the reviews here it is clear to me that he is nothing more than a money grubbing whore out to make a fast buck, just like he was with that piece of junk razor he endorsed earlier. Well P. T. Barnum had it right “There is a sucker born every minute”. If you need a watch don’t get caught up in the hype, Go to amazon and look thru the watches they have for better prices, that are better than this piece of Chinese junk.
If this watch is do damn good, why is there an arbitration agreement in stead of a money back guarantee that is only for 30 days from date of purchase ?
I will not be watching that crappy pawn shop show on the history channel any longer. I would rather watch something with someone I feel is a little more honest than just wanting to take the public’s money by duping people into thinking they are buying something worth while. Also I am disappointed that someone such as this would try to capitalize on a fraud such as this by making a representation that it will benefit or honor our veterans that served our country with distinction and honor by being made in china as it is.

This is a junk quartz watch, apparently made in China. The sad thing is that very accurate mechanical watches were developed for the war effort. They were dubbed chronometers. They really were an engineering marvel. With a compass and a very accurate chronometer, the planes could accurately navigate to the target and drop their bombs.

Quartz watches should be hyper accurate, but they aren’t an engineering marvel that a precision mechanical watch is.

I ordered this watch from Canada and it was debited on my Visa but the watch never arrived and they sent me a notice saying the watch was returned to them and I would receive a refund. I contacted them and said I never received it so how could I send it back. It likely was Cdn customs. So I asked them to resend it out again. When it arrived it looked great and had a nice feel. one problem…it didn’t work. So I thought it might be the battery and I called American Aviator and since they agreed it could be the battery they gave me a $5 credit on my visa to cover the cost. When I took the watch to a watch repair shop he said it wasn’t the battery in fact the minute hand was not working as well it was flapping around. But he said it was a nice looking watch but advised me to return it for a refund. So I sent it back less $8 shipping. Bottom line was a waste of time. Too bad I wanted the watch.

I was going to buy this watch until I found out it was Chinese made that being said I’ll probably buy something else.

Let’s remember this is an As Seen on TV advertisement product. I really didn’t expect more than that. Too bad there’s not more truth in advertising but take this for what it is it’s not a political forum. God bless you all.

Sounds like it was written by or for those selling this watch…and I really wanted to find out it was even marginally well made.

Why is it people are allowed to lie and be misleading on commercials? I want to redo them and ring a bell everytime they lie. Watch this “quality” watch as the second hand comes around and moves the minute hand. That’s quality. If we keep seeing commercials like this you can tell that people are stupid enough to buy crap.

I bought this watch for the looks and the price. I wasn’t swayed by the sales pitch. It looked like a good deal so I bought it. WHAT A MISTAKE! A few DAYS after it arrived and I put it on, it just stopped ticking. I sent it back and I got a replacement in a relatively short time (couple of weeks). Now THAT ONE HAS ALSO STOPPED WORKING! I will try to get a refund, so I can buy a good cheap Japanese Seiko, which by the way was our enemy in WWII, whereas China was an ally. Don’t know why you guys are so anti-chinese. (joke)

I ordered one of the American Aviator watches for my husband after he saw the infomercial. I can’t tell you how many times he has told me that it stopped. The most recent was when we were supposed to leave on vacation. I called him to see if he was on his way home, and he said ” I will be in a couple of hours…it’s only 9:30″. It was actually 11:30 and we were supposed to leave at 12:00. Nice way to start a vacation! What a POS!!

I noticed that everyone is complaining about the watch being made in China and so am I . But I feel the quality is very poor and the warranty is almost nonexistent . I received my watch in Jan. 2016. I did not wear it much so I was very surprised went it stopped working . I called customer service today 6-6-16 and I was told it is out of warranty. It has a 60 day warranty and he said they were gracious and added 30 more days for a total of 90 days. You can buy cheap watches at any flee market that run for years and only require a new battery. This watch ran for about 4 months before starting to fail. Well known people like Rick Harrison should do a little more checking into the product before indorsing it.
By the way, the company is giving me a $15.00 credit so that I can take the watch to a jeweler and get it repaired. I do not plan to put any additional money into this product.

This watch is a scam!!! I received it as a gift for Christmas 2015. Quit working in January. Started up again and ran for a few days and quit again. Couldn’t get anyone in customer service. Web site sucks. Sent several emails to various websites. Notice they don’t have a rating system on their web site. They pass you around and promise a return phone call that never comes. I have a $10 cheapie watch that has been running without a miss for 5-6 years. If they would spend some of the money they put into packaging and advertising, maybe they would have a decent watch. Poor quality watch. Non-existent customer service. NOT WORTH THE HASSLE!!

this is the second one that I have . the first one after a month, started giving me false time. Took it the watchman to change the battery, after a few days the same thing happened. Call Costumer service (good luck with that because they say they have 10, 000 products and don’t have a profile for this item) figure that! Sent it back and it is doing the same thing. I WANT MY MONEY BACK! You go to walmart and buy a cheaper watch and last you ten times more than this crap! Shame on this joker on TV,

Bought this watch after seeing Rick push it. It came in late April. It never did glow in the dark. After a couple weeks it stopped. I reset it and it worked for a week or two, stopped again. Happened a couple more times. I called a company rep who said the watch was now out of warranty (60 days), but she could send me a new one for ten bucks less than full price, plus shipping. I told her no thanks I was pitching it in the trash. Really disappointed in Rick and won’t be watching Pawn Stars anymore. Particularly because it plays on the patriotic theme. I’m really tired of having to buy garbage from China that’s guaranteed to break in a short period of time. JUNK!

I got my husband this watch after he saw the commercial and liked the look. We got the watch about 6 months ago. He’s not as hard on watches as he used to be since he retired (he used to be a cop and was a bit hard on them.) So I figured what the heck, the watch was cheap enough, we’d give it a shot and I hadn’t seen any negative reviews. Once he had it about 6 months, the hour hand started to keep time on its own, It now jumps 9 hours at a pop. I called the company, only to be told the warranty is only good for 30 days. If I had known that in advance, I would have thought twice about the purchase. Don’t bother with watch, Timex has one almost identical, cheaper and with a one year warranty.

I bought this watch at Walmart last week. Seems to keep time accurately so far but the band is crap. The pin in the band has popped out every time I take off the watch. I’m dam tired of having to struggle getting the pin to stay attached . I’m currently out-of- town and considering returning this Chinese piece of crap when I get back. I’m old enough to remember when Japanese products were poorly made but I’m not willing to wait for the Chinese to get their act together.

This watch is a piece of crap. The stem doesn’t click in place. Any little bump or brush against anything and the watch stops. Does it about 5 to 6 times a day.

You barely touch the dial and it stops working until you push it back in and tap the face about five times than it works and than it periodically stops working. And it is made in China and not in the United States of America. I say it’s was not well worth the 40. I would strongly suggest you don’t buy this and find something else like a Timex. Good luck

All the tea party morons who bellyached in their comments that American companies bail out to China because of our “environmental laws, fair wage and compensation requirements, humane working conditions and sky-high corporate taxes”, here’s the real deal…These companies left because of THEIR decision to race to the bottom at break-neck speed, to wage war on the environment because doing so saves money (of course these disgusting individuals have no obligation to the future, i.e., the well-being of their own companies not to mention their children, grand children, etc). Never forget that humane working conditions cost money, which is always more important to these thugs than human beings. Finally, our corporate tax rate IS NOT 35%, the highest in the world. After tax dodges and sheltering huge amounts of income from taxation based on “off shoring”, the ACTUAL tax rate paid by American companies is 15%. Enjoy the wilderness, tea party; your fifteen minutes of fame is rapidly drawing to a close. The political pendulum is finally about to swing back toward sanity, and not a moment too soon.

Analog has nothing to do with quartz or ticking. A quartz watch can be analog ( old fashioned numeral face with actual hands) or digital (just digital numbers, no hands). No quartz watch ticks unless you have Kryptonian hearing and you are hearing the oscillations of the quartz crystal. True ticking requires gears as in mechanical watches..

In addition to the disrespect of selling a Chinese-made watch as a “US Aviator Watch,” check out the formation of jet airplanes in the TV commercial. They are Russian MiG-29s. That’s right — the aircraft of our Commie enemies. Nice job, Rick Harrison. You’ve managed to completely alienate every US veteran.

I am not concerned with where this watch is made. I am an infantry veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Saying you will not buy an item celebrating American veterans because of where it is made is the real tragedy. Would you let an American flag made in China touch the floor? Patriotism is universal and I think that the fact that Chinese citizens are even willing to manufacture a product celebrating U.S. vets speaks bounds to the missions our vets set out to accomplish in the first place.

The problem is we Americans make good products, have pride in our work when we are paid a fair wage, but these giant Corps don’t want quality because then we wouldn’t have to replace things anywhere as often, and these co.’s who own almost everything took their manufacturing to other countries because in other countries they get low or no taxes on their profits, don’t have to worry about treating workers right, poisoning the environment, etc., including paying them a wage that they can survive on in their own country. They work for pennies on the dollar and are many times treated like slave labor. Now, if you would like to change things you need to get involved with making demands from your government to close all the loop holes and start charging tariffs to make the market place more fair not only for us, but for all humans on our planet who are used like this. Our trade deficit is outrageous! We let these co. bring these goods back into the U.S. to sell to us at huge profit and our products are subject to all kinds of tariffs when sent overseas to other countries. It is time to throw the Billionaires and multi millionaires out of our gov and change our election laws starting with Citizens United which has given corporations the status of humans and start building our manufacturing back up where it will be able to easily compete with these companies that are American traitors. They only have one god, its name is profit, and they do anything to be richer even though their wealth surpasses the needs for their families for the next thousand years!

As a certified watchmaker, I can tell you that the original had AMERICAN made movements by the likes of Hamilton, Elgin, and Waltham. These companies are now no longer around and Hamilton is owned by the Swiss company Swatch group. This Pawn Star hack is out to make money and should be ashamed of himself for putting vets on his commercial for this piece of junk if they are really vets. If it was of any quality it would say Swiss made on the bottom of the dial and if it doesn’t it has either a Japanese quartz movement or one that was made in Hong Kong. As far as I know the Chinese are not producing quartz watches and the Swiss make some that are assembles in Thailand with Swiss parts but they stamp all of their watches either Swiss Made or Assembled in Thailand with Swiss Parts. He really should be ashamed of this and if you buy it I’m sorry he duped you. I cant believe he actually says that this watch could cost a thousand dollars. Shame, Shame, Shame

Aside from the nostalgic styling, this is nothing but a quartz movement, analog display basic wristwatch. Easily found at WalMart for example and no doubt other stores. Being a quartz movement, it keeps excellent time and I would expect at least a couple of years of operation from the battery. But the sad fact of it is ya can buy very very very similar Chinese watches off Amazon (I have some) for 4 dollars and that includes the shipping, all day long. And they have the date complication also.

Having said the above about the watch, the advertising and marketing and the outright wrong statements in the ad is bulls__t!

I just wanted to chime in here.

I’m an Aviation enthusiast I love WWII Planes
My mom bought me this watch for a Christmas gift $50+ Of her hard earned money went on it. I was very happy with it I took pictures of it and wore and wore it with pride. My Grandfather served in WWII he fought on Omaha beach. I have a very big love for WWII history. I love the American flag. My mom saw it and thought I would love it. I did and I still do. God bless her for getting me anything at all much less this beautiful watch. I’ve had the watch about 2 years now or more and I have to say I don’t give a damn if it was made in China it’s a beautiful watch well packaged with WWII aviation decor tin.

The number of the product is clearly marked on the beautiful shining tin. I had to reset it last month and over a few weeks I began to notice that it lost time again by more than 3 hours. I am looking to get the battery replaced I can’t get the back off that’s actually how I found this post. In defense of something that was given as a gift by my mom to me I had to comment here and let people know it’s not as bad as everyone is making it out to be. Mine was bought off HSN some cheap products are sold on HSN but HSN usually has the more quality of the crap items so I was fortunate to not have immediate issues like some.

Point it’s a beautiful watch beautiful enough for people to seek out watch repair places to fix it or change the battery. It’s not the highest quality and you shouldn’t expect it to last forever. But it does make a great gift that will be cherished for the thought regardless.
I’m going to try to replace my battery if I have to again soon then I’ll put it up on a shelf and get another but I will tell you it’s been a great watch a great fitting one and beautiful one I take care of and will keep.

Love it or hate it made in America or not it’s a gift watch and a collectors item at the cost of this you can’t expect to perform like a brand name watch. I’ll add that many of the products made in America these past few years have fallen in standards meanwhile some of the decent things I own weren’t made here. Best of luck to you if you plan on getting one try buying from a reputable vendor HSN might not have them anymore but we’ve never been disappointed with anything bought from there knock on wood.

I am adding this website to my favorites bar. The comments are great. I watch Pawn Stars and I think Rick is great but I’m not buying this watch. The made in China part isn’t really a problem as long as the guts (the movement) is Japanese or Swiss or USA although the Fossil line has movements made in what was Hong Kong and they are very reliable. If you have opened hundreds of watches like I have you can tell the difference in quality. Minor note, no watch can be labeled waterproof anymore. Even if it is a real diver’s watch it will still just say water resistant but will have a depth or AT (atmospheres) rating, the higher the AT or depth rating the more resistant. Rick should donate any money he gets to a Vet group. He can’t possibly need the money, heck Chumlee drives a Lambo .
