Travel in the backcountry often requires careful navigation. Careful navigation requires knowledge of your surroundings. Part of your surroundings includes your elevation and knowing this to a reasonable degree of accuracy can be valuable. In the past most of us would wear a digital altimeter watch. These watches certainly performed their function, but there is no denying that many also lacked a certain special something. St. Moritz noticed this and their take on what was missing is simple and seemingly radical: replace the digital dial with an analog dial. The Momentum Topograph has an analog watch face. It cleverly mixes the chronograph functions you would expect to find on a modern watch with a classic altimeter that any pilot would recognize.
The watch is housed in a stylish stainless steel casing and comes with either a mineral or sapphire crystal. This is a classy looking watch. It might take you a little longer to learn how to read the altimeter than reading a digital readout, but if you are searching for a watch with a great deal of class, style, and a different means of expressing useful information the Momentum Topograph may be worth investigating.
