NATO PATTERN STAINLESS STEEL MILITARY PILOTS CHRONOGRAPH

SKU: CHR66-4Q

stainless steel case is based on the same specification used by several other manufacturers of NATO quartz chronographs but with a number of detail improvements to improve operation and visibility. Although the watch is made to a specification which is specifically designed to
meet the needs of military aircrews it is also ideal for both airline and GA pilots.The actual case size is 45.5mm and the chronograph uses a Seiko VK64 Meca-Quartz movement which is used by a high percentage of current superior quality quartz watches.


The Meca-quartz is a hybrid movement which combines technologies found in both quartz and mechanical movements benefiting from the advantages of each. The timekeeping mechanismis essentially quartz and has a quartz crystal regulator powered by a battery and connected to a series of gears to move the timekeeping hands. As regards the chronograph timing functions, the center second hand starts moving as with any chronograph when to push the pusher. The difference with the Hybrid models is that you will see that it moves like a mechanical chronograph rather than ticking in one-second intervals and moves five times a second so when in use behaves more like a mechanical watch than a quartz model. It's when you reset the watch that the big difference with a hybrid of this type becomes apparent because during reset the chronograph hands are disengaged from the quartz module and snapped back to zero. This means you don't get the sweep back to zero that is normally typical with conventional quartz chronographs so the end result is a great compromise between quartz timekeeping with the plus that it looks and feels very much like a mechanical chronograph.

Another feature of this watch is that it uses screw strap pins which offer the strength of military fixed pins but with the flexibility of spring pins so that they can be removed to enable you to fit a wide variety of strap types
although it is vital to use Threadlock such as Loctite 243 to ensure they can’t come out if you do decide to
remove them.
