    its basically a slide rule, you can calculate how much fuel you will need for a flight and much more.

    The Maverick Diver is a discontinued model, the alarm, dual time, and chronograph are still current though, but they are limited to 100 meters and don't have the yachtmaster style bezel.

    Current Victorinox Maverick collection.

    The Maverick Divers 24703 listed for about $395 but if you are patient they pop up for about $100 on the bay. I paid $98 +$12 for shipping for the one in the picture, the silver dials are a bit more scarce than the black dial models.

    My friend came to visit from L.A. recently wearing a Breitling Super Avenger.

    I asked if he was overcompensating for something.

    He reminded me that I have one too.

    I thought the Breitling Super Avenger was big...but then this thing arrived today. It's at least twice as big. It's totally absurd. It's so massive it's useful as impromptu brass knuckles.

    Yeah, it's almost big enough to be a helmet. Seriously though, this thing is overkill in the sense that driving a big rig to the prom is overkill. But I do enjoy giant watches; they get attention, and the only time I ever wear a watch is to a semiformal or formal event, which is the only time I want attention from people I don't know.

    The screw-off pressure cap on the side is awesome in itself. It's attached with a good solid little chain, and houses the winding mechanism. I'm guessing this would outdive a Rolex sub-mariner. Of course, it might tip you to negative buoyancy.

    A circular analogue computer will perform any kind of multiplication and division-based operation, even the standard a/b=c/d rule. Trust me, well used this can go a long, long way, and sometimes it's much faster than a digital calculator. Plus, on aviation dedicated units, you will have conversion markings for speed, weight, distance, density, etc.

    I have this watch too. Replaced my old G-shock about 5 years ago and been on my wrist every day since. I'd take a picture of mine but don't have a camera at the moment.

    If this thing ever wears out on me, I'm probably going to replace it with a sea pathfinder.
