In the course of these tasks it's important to time various things; engine cool down, bleed air pressure bleed off etc. So, I've been looking for a good, cheap chronograph to knock around at work and serve as a timer. Enter the Seiko Flightmaster Chronograph SNA411. Gorgeous watch with a great aviation provenance. The bezel has a rotary slide rule flight computer integrated, known as an E6B. It can calculate fuel burn, distance, ETA, speed, oil consumption, on and on. Not only does it look badass, it is badass. Just wanted to share an exciting day. Thanks for looking!
I thought that looked like Pax River. Did 3 tours there. USNTPS then 2 tours @ VX-23. Congrats on the quals and new watch. Seiko makes a fine mechanical.

I have collected quite a few watches over the years. My favorite is still the G-Shock, though.
