Item Description

Offering an oversized modern styling, the Torgoen T7 men’s watch combines dual time zone tracking with a pilot’s computer/slide rule. Featuring one of the most advanced timing movements made by famed manufacturer Ronda of Switzerland, the T7 includes a black subdial at the bottom (with two-handed movement and Arabic numeral display) that enables monitoring of a second time zone. It also includes an integrated slide rule on the rotating bezel for quick calculations ranging from flight fuel consumption to currency conversion. Featuring a high-grade stainless steel watch case and sporty gray polyurethane strap, this T7 (model T70505S05) has a yellow dial face, large luminous hands, a mix of thick luminous hour markers and Arabic numerals at the quarter hours, and a date window at 12 o’clock. The squarish watch case features gray plating accents along the sides and a round, raised bezel with engraved Arabic numeral 5-minute marks.

Other features include a scratch-resistant mineral crystal and water resistance to 100 meters (330 feet)–offering protection from accidental splashes as well suitable for swimming, snorkeling, and light recreational diving. It comes with a detailed instruction booklet on operating the flight computer features.

Using this watch’s flight computer/slide rule feature, you can easily make a variety of calculations including currency conversion.

Using a Flight Computer Watch
This Torgoen watch can be used as a regular circular slide rule or a flight computer. It uses the calculation abilities of a slide rule to calculate time, speed and distance, and fuel consumption, as well as useful conversions such as statute miles to nautical miles, metric units to English units, or US Dollars to British Pounds. Easy to use after just a little practice, you’ll be able to perform some calculations more quickly than with a hand-held calculator.

As an example, suppose the conversion rate for the Swiss Franc is SFR 1.60 to $1.00. Rotate the outer scale to match 16 over 10, the outer scale becomes Swiss Francs and the middle scale becomes US dollars. You can leave the scales like that until the exchange rate changes. If you want to convert SFR 4.00 to dollars you look at the number in the middle scale opposite the 40 on the outer scale. The number is 25. You can therefore deduce that SFR4.00 are $2.50 (see example image at right).
