Co-Pilot Watch Review
Very nice watch. This has a functioning, bi-directional slide rule bezel, and the basic calculations I've done with it seem pretty accurate for a watch of this price.
The second hand for the stopwatch is the long, centrally mounted second hand, which I prefer, not one of the subdials, like with some cheaper watches. And, when you reset the stopwatch, the minute and second hands quickly return to zero without needing to spin round and round.
When I tap on the crystal with my finger, it feels substantial, not cheap or "plasticky."
The specs say it has 40mm diameter case, but it "wears" bigger, maybe due to the fact that the metal bezel is so thin, so that the crystal takes up most of the viewing area of the watch, and everything inside the crystal is a similar color. To me, it looks a nice size on the wrist.
The only cons are that it doesn't have the date, and the stopwatch second hand is slightly "wobbly", but not enough to make it difficult to read the value it is pointi

BEAUTIFUL WATCH. LARGE FACE FAIRLY EASY TO USE. ONE DRAWBACK IS THE 24 HR. HAND DOESN'T KEEP LAPS TIME IN HOURS. IT ONLY MATCHES THE PRESENT TIME. IE. 10:00 PM STANDERED TIME SHOWS UP AS 22;00 HOURS. OTHERWISE A VERY BEAUTIFUL TIME PIECE. WORTH THE MONEY.
Tachymeter Instructions Missing
This is a lovely watch, and I plan on purchasing one as soon as they come back in stock. I had asked customer service how the Tachymeter function worked (the outer movable bezel and adjacent rings), as there are no instructions for that. I have since researched this and have provided them with a document I drafted that outlines how to do time, distance and rate of speed calculations with the watch. I can't wait to lay hands on my own version of this watch, and add it to my extensive collection of other Stauer wristwatches.
This watch was out of stock for almost a month; but it was worth the wait!
The dial just screams vintage chronograph!The attention to detail is amazing. The quartz movement is very accurate and easy to use...
One of my all time favorite Stauer timepieces!It wears a little large on my wrist, but it doesn't matter; I never get tired of looking at quality and value in a great watch!
Cool, hip, stylish and very retro. Very pleased with this watch.

Co-Pilot Watch Review
A very attractive and cool watch reminiscent of what the old aviators wore. However, the bezel DOES NOT MOVE allowing for the functions and calculations it looks like it's capable of. This let me down some, as I am a pilot and it would have been cool if it was capable of calculations. None the less, a cool watch.
The co-pilot just arrived. Nice. Don't panic, there is no second sweep, after removing the plastic retainer on the crown and pressing it in, the watch is running. Reset the sweep timer if it does not return exactly to zero, the directions do explain how. Now, how to use the functions for which the watch was intended? If, like me, you are old enough to have used a slide-rule, this will be easy. If not, just take the time and it will become easy. The best explanation of this type of watch is the Breitling video at:
PRO-A very handsome retro style timepiece, wears well and keeps good time.
CON- The hands do NOT glow in the dark so you can't tell time at nite (as in a dark cockpit?)
The band design is very weak at the pins, mine ripped out in 3 weeks.However the customer service lady is very personable and is shipping me out a new band ASAP.
