Thread: E-6B on a watch

    E-6B on a watch

    I received a Pulsar wrist watch for Christmas that has some form of an E-6b
    around the dial. Disregarding for a moment that it's too darn small for me
    to see and use in a practical manner, I'm curious if anyone has or knows of
    a place to get instructions on how to use it. It seems to be a little
    different than a standard E-6B we all used as students. Any ideas?

    E-6B on a watch

    Rick,

    You probably have the same, or a variant, of the Pulsar I have. A number of
    "aviator" watches on the market have these. They do work.if you can see the
    tiny numbers. And half the numbers are on the inside of the dial, up under
    the rim.

    I can't find the directions that came with mine.if I find them I will send
    you a copy.

    But, honestly, I don't see the use. How many of us use even a full sized E6B
    when flight planning? And in the air? One of my Annual chores is prying all
    the dropped pencils out of the seat rails.

    Here is the online manual for my watch (Citizen Skyhawk, my only watch that hasn't ever broke )

    http://www.citizenwatch.com/Technica...C650_ebook.pdf

    Look on the last pages for info on using the E6B. This should apply to your watch.

    Hope this helps
