Airman 9 can be converted into a purist 24 hour watch.

There also is some discussion around what the Airman Chronograph is able to read or better not able to read.
As far as I can see it does the normal 60 seconds with the large white hand, 30 min totalizers at 12 and a 12 hour totalizers at 6.
Probably it's the absence of an 1/5 second of a minute scale.

Airman 9 has a mesmerising back. Up till now the see-through back didn't draw my attention but starting with Airman 9 Glycine began to engrave and decorate the oscillating weight.
