You know you’re in trouble when the flight navigation system breaks down. But, Paul remained cool. “Don’t worry,” he said. “I have everything I need right here.” And with a smile, he pointed to his watch. Was he joking? I know pilots have a good sense of humor, but when you’re flying blind, nothing is funny. “In 5 more minutes I’ll bank right and 12 minutes and 23 seconds after, we’ll start our descent.” Neither his words, nor his confidence offered any comfort to the knot in the pit of my stomach. But true to his word, we began to see the light from the flight tower.
There is nothing like the fear of the worst to bring about a change for the better. I never wore a wrist watch before, but the first thing I did when we arrived in Saint Martin was buy the exact watch Paul used to navigate us there safely. Now, you can own this amazing timepiece without ever leaving the ground.
The Stauer Avier Watch uses a precision quartz movement, ensuring the accuracy of every second. Its tachymeter helps measure speed and ascent while the chronograph function allows you to measure elapsed time to help perform complicated maneuvers. The luminous hour and minute hands over a black face dial makes it easy-to-read any time – day or night. The airplane logo at the 9 o’clock position is a constant reminder that this watch on the right person’s wrist is more than just a fashion statement, it’s a life saver.
