The crown

 

The turning bezel is adjustable through the use of a dedicated crown. The hour regulating crown, instead, is placed on the left side of the case at 9h. The watch is therefore a mancino (left-handed). This unique design makes it a comfortable watch and helps to avoid articular sprains even in case of fall.

How it functions

 

While the magnet can be subjected to magnetic fields (as it often happens in the deserts and in specific oceanic regions) and the GPS needs a source of electric energy in order to function, the solar compass ® is an instrument you can always rely on.

fig1

In order to orient oneself it is required to point the hour hand (of the correct time) in direction of the sun (fig. 1).

fig2

At this point, it’s necessary to correspond the hours marked on the 24 hour bezel by turning it (example: h14:00 with h2:00 on the 24 hour bezel) (fig. 2).

fig3

Pinpoint the cardinal points indicated by the red letters while maintaining the watch in the same position (fig. 3).
