countdown feature. The bi-directional visual countdown is easy to use:
A. When rotating the visual countdown turner, simply align minutes
on the inner bezel to be counted down with the minute hand
(i.e. 20 minutes).
B. When the minute hand reaches the yellow triangle (0 minutes),
20 minutes will have been counted down.

TACHYMETER
The tachymeter scale enables the speed of a moving
body to be read off in km/h (or in some other unit of
measurement). Measure the time taken to travel one
kilometer (or a different unit) and read the result on
the tachymeter scale. For example, the time taken is
40 seconds, equivalent to a speed of 90 km/h.
TELEMETER
The telemeter scale is situated between the dial and the
bezel of the watch. This scale enables the distance of
an object in kilometers to be measured. Calibration is
based on the speed with which sound travels through
the air — approximately 340 meters or 1,115 feet per
second. As an example, upon a flash of lightning start
the stop watch. Stop the chrono when the thunder clap
is heard. The telemeter scale will indicate the distance of the lightning
bolt in kilometers. If the 60-second counter indicates an elapsed time of 5
seconds between the lightning bolt and the thunder clap, the lightning
in this case is 1700 meters or 1.7 kilometers away.
