Calculating Above The Clouds

Good day watch world. I’ve recently started learning how to use a pilot’s watch with the calculator printed on a rotating bezel. If history is correct, Charles Lindbergh used his watch to keep track of fuel consumption while flying around the world. During WW 2 the demand for Swiss watch makers to produce watches for pilots sky rocketed. I don’t have the technique down pact yet, but I’ll get there. Watches equipped with a calculator on the bezel can be used to convert miles to kilometers, dollars to whatever currency  is needed in whatever country you’re in. As well as fuel consumption. I’ll do another blog explaining the ends and outs. Every watch company today has produced its own piece with a calculator on the bezel. Brietling, IWC, Casio Edifice, Oris, Bremont, Citizen, Seiko, you name it.
