Notes

Retour en volThe title "retour en vol" refers to the instantaneous fly-back feature of the chronograph work. A single push on the lower chronograph button, "zero's" the chronograph hand while still in motion, which then restarts immediatly, avoiding the need for a pilot to break concentration from the control of the plane.
