Not good quality

i got two of these watches, the first one broke after one week( the long arrow falled in the case of the watch). The second one after fews weeks the long arrow (chrono arrow) mooved a little bit to the left so the chrono arrow was not starting at 12 it was starting at 11, but the chrono was still working and the watch to. now it's been about 1 year since I got it (the second one) and the mechanism to lock the watch bracelet was loose and the watch ad a 1 meter drop and the long arrow falled again like the frist time. And btw i was having the metal bracelet. I i apologize for my bad English usually im speaking french.
So I bought this watch in the previous drop and I have been using it as my daily watch. If you want to see images, there are plenty already uploaded by others but here are my 2 cents regardless.

It is an excellent watch, no two ways about it. Everywhere a watch would have been as a daily watch (other than the shower and swimming with it), it has been. So I will divide this as a pro/con list to make it easy for you. My watch is the blue face, silver casing and tan strap (highly suggest this as I have seen other combinations in the real world and they are not really the same as the photo).

1. The Weight - There are no two ways about this. It feels like as if it hovers in the air.
2. The Design - Can be used either as a dress/casual/business watch any function of the week.
3. The Dial - the numbers and other markers are the correct size to be read easily
4. The Size - at 42mm (sorry you non-metric users, do the conversion yourself), it sits perfectly and comfortably on your wrist, without having to worry about your wrist size in my opinion.
5. The Strap - It is by far the most comfortable strap I have worn in a while. It does not seem to stretch overtime and prolongated use which is important as a daily watch in my opinion.

1. The Weight - no con here. Go to gym and gain some muscle.
2. The Design - The Luminous numbers and hands take a surprising amount of sun for it to be 'powered'. I honestly think I would grow old and die before it reaches full luminosity (not a deal breaker for me).
3. The Dial - I was completely surprised which hands were switched around. The usual second hand is the stopwatch hand and the stop watch hand is the second hand.
4. The Size - it is fine. No issue here.
5. The Strap - It stains easily. No matter how much you try to clean it, the stain stays there.

Hope this helps :)
As someone else mentioned earlier, there appears to have been a re-design on this watch. I ordered the blue Pilot 41 chrono and it has a polished case rather than brushed, a sort of odd beveled case back, and thinner lugs. Mine also has a strange uneven blue coating on the chrono pushers. It is still a nice watch, but substantially different from the advertised pictures. I will keep it, but personally I would rather have had the version pictured that I thought I was buying. What say you Massdrop?

I thought they might have been stickers, and I tried pretty hard to peel them off but they wouldn't budge. Assumed it was something else. Anyway, after a little more thought I decided to return the watch as I just felt kind of misled.
Exactly how I felt. Definitely not what was being advertised.
I got my Enclave quickly after the drop ended. The watch looks great, just as depicted on this site. The band has a suede-like finish and is comfortable. My only gripe is with the seconds hand on the chronometer. When you reset the chronograph, it stops at the 58 seconds mark (see pic)! What gives Enclave? Unless there is some obscure way to reset it properly, I find this rather frustrating. I mean, I'm not going to use the watch to time sprinters at the olympics, but come on! Seems like the minimum when making a watch is to make sure all your hands line up correctly. So to make it look right, I have to start the chrono and stop it after two senconds so it lines up with the 12 o'clock mark. Geez!
Nice watch, but with unaligned hands...

Hey JamesLC, it worked like a charm! Thanks for the help!
Happy to help :)
Is there a redesign of this watch? I was expecting a brushed metal case with thicker lugs, and mine doesn't look like the pictures.
The website lists this as being 7mm thick. Listed here at 10mm. Which is correct?

Also, does anyone have the lug-to-lug measurement?
So the description for the blue Chrono Pilot 41 on Enclave‘s webpage indicates that the watch has lume on both the hands and the numbers around the dial. Can anyone who owns the blue version of this watch confirm this and / or attach a lume shot? I’d Like to know for certain.

I got my navy blue Pilot 41 chrono today and I can confirm that it DOES have lume on the hands and numbers as advertised. It's not great lume, and fades pretty fast, but it is lume.
Interesting. Wonder why mine doesn't.
This is a simple, Slick, not complicated watch and a great price.

Can anyone verify the movement for this watch? Looking at the previous drop, the back of the watch said "Swiss Movement" (info I found says that was a Ronda 774). This drop, the back says "Japanese Movement" but I cannot seem to find anything more specific on it. I find myself getting drawn tot he watch - I like it more each time I look at it, but I'm a little skeptical of the movement this time around.....

BTW - the description, that does look to be from the last time around on this watch -- the previous drop was for watches that DID NOT have numbers (which are all those "sold outs" that you see when you join the drop and add the watch you want to the cart).

I emailed tech support - this is what they said;

Miyota OS11 is the movement!

So the units we will get are with numerals right? Photos are correct but description seems to be copy pasted from previous drops that are not with numerals?
Yes, but is it an affordable luxury timepiece that removes the middleman and unlocks the secret to luxury watch pricing?
Nice looking watch and inexpensive. I chuckled at the description,"... watch is an exercise in minimalism ...", it's a chronograph, it has a complication and as a result a busy dial with sub wheels/sub dials, I don't see how it can be minimal, but am splitting hairs, it's a pretty watch. :-)
