Just wondering, does someone actually use the slide rule on watches? And if so, is having it a selling point for people?

It works, it's pretty accurate on most watches that have it, but it is usually quite small and a bit 'fidgety' to use.

I use it. though I think I may be the minority.:roll:
There are several slide rule layouts, the ones that have the inner scale inside the glass are almost impossible to read due to reflection and also the distance between the markings makes it difficult to read the correct alignment.
Seiko and Citizen make a few good examples of readable, functioning slide rule bezels but for the rest they are just for bling.;-)

Nope..
I just use a "normal" watch, and have an E6B by the side. Does the job.

cheers,
Jake.
