Great for the cockpit,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: German automatic watch for left hand user watch 24h system A1394 (Watch)
I am a pilot and do a lot of dead reckoning navigation. I wanted a watch with minutes on the dial, rather than hours, as this is very helpful for time checks and we flying nerds don't care much for hours anyway. Its a lovely watch, well made and has just the right kind of weighty/expensive feel to it. It's easy to read and, as it goes on my right wrist, i can keep it in full view without taking my hand of the throttle! Also leaves my left hand free to write on the kneeboard whilst reading it.
The only complaint i have is that it is a self winding watch (tho you can also manually wind it). I must have missed this in the product description because i really wanted a battery powered one (other pilots will know the dread of loosing time whilst doing an IFR procedure). As i don't wear it every day i find myself winding it before every flight and resetting the hands. However, it then lasts at least a couple of days so hasn't let me down and if you wear yours all the time you wont be bothered by this.
