My Dream Watch?

I think I finally found my perfect aviator watch! Almost 5 years ago I posted a “must have” list for my flying watch. I have yet to find one… until today.

The 4-bit Chrono watch by Cadence displays time in both UTC and local time on the same dial face. It’s a chronometer too, so great for timing those legs, and doing ground speed estimations, etc.. Plus, the binary numerals tailors to my geeky-ness.

It also doesn’t cost $8,000! Put that in your pipe Breitling and smoke it!

  1. Five years ago, you said “must be digital”. This doesn’t look very digital.

    FWIW, I always use dual-timezone digital watches when flying. They’re not as pretty as this but a lot more practical when you need UTC and local at the same time. And I don’t think I’ve ever spent more tha $200 on any of them.

    Cliff,

    I’ve given up on a digital watch after all these years.

    I don’t suppose your digital watch displays both zones at the same time?

    I use the Casio AQ164. Picture at: http://www.casio.com/products/Timepiece/Sports/AQ164_Series/product/AQ164WD-1AV/

    Analog hands, digital UTC, stopwatch and easy to use in flight. Best of all, it’s only $60 in most stores!

    That is a really nice watch! I think that watches are over priced these days but Cadence are known for their reliability and quality! I have one I wear when I fly business jet good recommendation!
