    Messing around with "hand fan" arrangements as seen with my avatar, but this time trying to incorporate the challenging nonadjustable 24 hour sub-hand (or at least indirectly adjustable :p)

    These take a little planning...

    I sorta like this how this one turned out the best.

    I had to utilize the Google machine. Yes...Pi is useful (essential) regarding navigation...luckily, various electronic computers do the handling of Pi.

    I don't understand the advertising here... engineers yes, mathematicians yes, but the Navitimer is for pilots. The Chronomat is for engineers, accountants, etc... maybe even steely-eyed missile men... yes, nerds. But so much cooler than the slide rules we used to carry in our plastic-protected shirt pockets!

    Here are some good links:

    Nope. She was 'after-market' ::rimshot::;)

    She was a sweet girl, but the car turned out to be much more accommodating to my 18 y.o. desires :D
