Dissing Pioneer

1

A pioneer is someone who is fearless and adventurous – exactly like the Dissing Pioneer.

The Dissing Pioneer is characterized by its high quality, which shows in the materials used in the production of the watch. For instance, the watch comes with 316L surgical stainless steel, scratch resistant sapphire crystal and date display. Besides this, the Dissing Pioneer is water resistant to 150 meters (15 ATM) and has a Seiko 64VK movement.

 

How the watch works

 

The crown of the watch has two settings.

The first setting, namely the first notch in which the crown can be pulled out (1), sets the date on the watch. To set the date, pull out the crown in the first notch, then rotate the crown clockwise to the correct date and push the crown in to set the selected date.

The time is set in the second notch (2), where the crown is fully extended. When the crown is fully extended, the time is set and then the crown is pushed all the way into the watch case again to start the watch (0).

An important detail of this watch is that the long, thin hand in the dial function as a stopwatch and not a second hand, as in many other watches. This stopwatch is started and stopped by the top button on the side of the watch (A). The lower button is used to reset the stopwatch (B).

The two chronographs in the watch function as a minute counter (D) and 24-hour clock respectively (C). The chronograph on the left runs together with the stopwatch. When the stopwatch has turned one revolution, the minute hand in the chronograph advances one notch. This allows the stopwatch to run one hour at a time. The chronograph on the left of the dial functions as a 24-hour clock, which keeps track of the time on the watch and thus shows where you are in the day.

A chronograph clockwork must be calibrated from time to time to reset the chronograph indicators.
