I have one. The more expensive type, $6.99. Has a dual time fuction, one of which is set to Zulu. Works great.Metro752 said:GO TO WAL*MART AND BUY ONE GRANT, $5.00 with a velcro band. BAW HAW AHAW HAW HAW!!
Ever heard of the B.W.L.D. theory?grantrobarts said:Anyone have any recommendations for a solid, very affordable watch? No real preferences, something reasonable on the price, though.
Yeah, and thats why I am not looking for a BIG watch haha. I wanted to know if anyone has a preference on a certain type. I've had a couple instructors give me crap about not wearing a watch all the time, so I need to invest in one and keep it permanently attached to me.FN FAL said:Ever heard of the B.W.L.D. theory?
Since the plane I fly has a clock in the dash, a clock in the ADF and one in the GPS, I have a Diver's watch...you never know when you might have to go down.
Buddy of mine dropped almost $700 dollars on one of those watches. Granted, he's got more money than he knows what to do with, but the price doesn't meet the necessity.UnAnswerd said:I found the $30 Timex to be particularly useful. It has an analog face to which I set local time. It also has a small digital display, to which I set UTC. Admittedly, I am considering buying a $150 "pilot" watch. However, I'd probably never spend $300 for a watch with an E6B. That's kinda overboard.
Yeah and those altimeters are inaccurate at hell.Huggyu2 said:Casio Pathfinder (or any other Casio like that). It has an altimeter, but I doubt you need that. Having the alarm and a stopwatch are important features for me. My old Casio had a countdown timer, but this one doesn't have it. I wish it did. I believe the USAF is issuing a Casio watch to new pilot training students.
