*Notes:  The original Jardur Bezelmeter 960 was designed for pilots. It was essentially a cockpit instrument for the wrist. Two features incorporated in the new Degreemeter design give clear evidence of this intent. The bezel on the case is an independent chapter ring graduated in counter clockwise hours. Rotating the ring to align the mission duration hours with the hour hand on the dial at take off gives the pilot a quick reference of the flight time remaining during any point in the mission.

                On the dial was a red degree meter scale graduated from 0-180 degrees of angle. Aircraft have control settings which will produce a standard turn rate of 3 degrees per second. By starting the chronograph sweep second hand at the initial part of turning, the sweep second hand position indicates the instantaneous course deviation in degrees on the red degree meter scale.  This information is more reliable than using magnetic compass instruments which are subject to inertial forces during turning maneuvers.
