Check out this abortion I just stumbled across.



and you can add an optional computer.




http://www.europastar.com/europastar..._id=1000872086

The Biformeter by the new brand Linde Werdelin . is a classic sports type watch, with an analogue dial, made in 316L stainless steel with rather distinctive styling. Its design is powerful but elegant, and its heart beats to the rhythm of an ETA 2892 or 2893 automatic mechanical movement in the Two Timer version. It is entirely manufactured in Switzerland with Swiss components.
In the morning, on the sky slopes, the Biformeter totally changes its look. It is the same watch, but, then an aluminium ‘Instrument’ clicks in. It is a mini-computer, measuring 42 x 42 x 8 mm and weighing 40 grams, which ‘attaches’ itself to the watch. It is a veritable data bank that allows the calculation of all sorts of measurements that can be stored in the memory: heart rate, oxygen level, ambient temperature variations, meteorological conditions, speed, etc. The data can be pulled up at any time in superb graphic form on the tiny screen that has a resolution of 128 x 128 pixels.
The Instrument is designed to withstand the most extreme conditions, and even if left aside for several months, it not only saves the desired data, but it can refresh its memory very quickly.
A series of pushbuttons on the aluminium case can be manipulated even with gloves on allowing the functions to be activated simply and easily. The first ‘Instrument’ will be the Earth version, the second will be the Sea, and the third the Air, with their necessary and respective functions.

hi john,have you seen the new limited edition moonwatch?
there are 3 versions of it...the "basic"model is very similar to the orig.
except that they are now making them with a dome sapphire crystal.
5597 of them are being made worldwide...i'm told "maybe"200 will be sent to the usa...maybe now it'll stand up to welding?

Go plastic. The plastic is a sine qua non of a Moon Watch:


STATEMENT OF SPECIFICATIONS

1. Accuracy - Must not gain or lose more than 5 seconds over a 24 hour period. Desirable to have an accuracy equal to or better than 2 seconds per 24 hours.

2. Pressure Integrity - The chronometer [sic] must be immune to large variances in pressure to include a range from 50 feet of water positive pressure to a negative pressure of 10 millimeters of mercury.

3. Readability - All disks, bands, and figures must be readable in various lighting conditions. The chronograph must be readable under both "red" and "white" lighting conditions to or beyond a 5 foot candle illumination intensity. Either a black face with white figures and numerals or black on white is satisfactory. The chronograph should not cause glare at the high illumination levels. A stainless steel case with a satin finish is preferred.

4. The chronograph must have stop-start elapsed dials with

a. Seconds to 1 minute
b. Minutes to 30 minutes
c. Hours to 12 hours or greater.

5. The chronograph must be shockproof, waterproof, and antimagnetic. In addition, the face cover must be shatterproof.

6. The chronograph may be powered electrically, manually or the self-winding type; however, it must be capable of being manually wound and re-set.

7. Reliability - the Manufacturer must guarantee the watch to operate properly under normal conditions for at least one year time period. Performance data and specifications should be supplied by the manufacturer. Manufacturer guarantee and/or warranty should also be included.

Sweet!

You'll have to write up a bit of a review, since so few of us have actually held any of the Sinns in our hands.

Very cool.
