What Are the Best Watches for Flight Attendants?

flight attendant watch

If you are a flight attendant and you are looking to invest in a watch before you buy you want to make sure that you can wear it to work.

In this article, I’ll explain how to choose your flight attendant watch and explain the requirements most airlines have for it.

You’ll also find a selection of the best watches available that won’t break the bank.

Do flight attendants have to wear a watch?

Yes. To work as a flight attendant you will be required to wear a watch –  it’s an FAA requirement as well as an airline requirement.

So, if you are going to a cabin crew interview, my advice is to dress for the job and wear a watch.

It can instantly improve your style and make you look more professional.

Plus it’s a mandatory item for cabin crews and you want to look like one, so it will look much more professional and elegant to check the time with your watch, not with your phone.

Why do flight attendants have to wear a watch?

It’s mandatory for timing during emergency procedures: to be able to synchronize in case of a planned emergency landing, and also essential for keeping track of time (getting to the briefing on time, informing passengers about the remaining time to destination, knowing if the boarding is being slow and therefore you are being delayed).

So, as you can see, a must-have item for any flight attendant.

Flight Attendant’s watch requirements

Not all watches meet the standards required, so check here to see the ones that suit the needs of most airlines.

  • It has to have a working second hand and clear time divisions, as in an emergency landing you may be given a time until impact and therefore you’ll need to synchronize with the rest of the crew.
  • Most airlines prefer plain watches with small faces. The maximum diameter differs from airline to airline but it should be moderate in size.
  • Black, Brown, Silver or Gold straps are preferred. But this differs from airline to airline. In Qatar Airways rose Gold straps are not allowed.
  • It can be a digital, analog or a smartwatch.
  • Dial must be white, black, grey, brown or metal.
  • Use a conservative business style watch. No big, fancy, colorful watches. Wear one with a  gold, silver, metal or black leather strap

What to look for?

  • Design and quality – The style of your watch is a very personal choice but regardless of the design you want to make sure that the material of the watch you choose is of the highest quality.
  • Watch movement reliability – Being always aware of the time is part of a cabin crew’s job, a very important part, so for that, you need a reliable watch.
  • Easy to take it off/remove – as sometimes you will be required to take it off at security control points.
  • Dual-time zone functionality – indicates the time in two different time zones, or in UTC which is the time the aviation industry uses. When you frequently land in different countries with a big-time difference it’s a super helpful functionality to have.
  • Night visibility led light – for those red-eye flights (late night flights) this is very useful, especially when the cabin is dimmed and you can’t see anything.
  • Easy to change the time – some watches are very complicated to use and difficult to change the time on. Avoid these if you want to fly with peace of mind.
  • Durable, resistant material – there is absolutely no doubt that your watch will get knocked about and its face will get scratched while at work. So make sure it’s durable and robust.
  • Long-Battery life or Automatic Movement – you don’t want to have to be constantly changing the battery or charging it.
  • Economical – don’t buy anything too expensive, remember that it will probably get quite battered. It should be of a quality good enough to wear every day in the robust working environment of a commercial airline, so price your watch accordingly.
  • Water-resistant –  you will need a watch that can handle water splashes from washing your hands or from being out in the rain.

Best watches for male flight attendant

Smartwatch

Smartwatches for a male flight attendants can be very useful to check calendar, roster, and flight details.

You will be able to see your flight number, departing and arriving times, etc. in a watch like this.

And since we are not allowed to check our phones at work you’ll also be able to check your phone’s messages, FB, IG, etc. on your watch.

Always handy.

I also love the sleep tracker function because we have different sleeping patterns every day and it’s always interesting to know if you’ve had sufficient time in bed, or if the quality of your sleep was good.
