Patent Pending ALPHABezel – COME EXPERIENCE IT AT SUN N FUN BOOTH C-61

"We looked at the procedures that pilots use in the cockpit on virtually every flight. ATIS is a tool of aviation that all pilots have used," says, The Abingdon Co. founder and professional pilot, Chelsea "Abingdon" Welch. ATIS, which is short for "Automatic Terminal Information Service" is a continuous broadcast of at an airport of important information like weather and runways in use. ATIS is required for a pilot to pick up when they depart or approach one of the 3,000 busier airports in the world. ATIS has a certain letter of the alphabet that signifies whether or not it's current. The problem that every pilot has encountered at some point in their flying is that they forget the ATIS letter that is current. With Katherine, we have provided a tool that will assist pilots in remembering ATIS making them safer in the cockpit.

In 2011, while working with another company to design a watch for them, the Abingdon Co. came up with the ALPHAbezel. This is a game changer for Aviation watches, and makes Katherine one of the most useful timepieces for pilots on the market today.

Katherine's bi-directional bezel has the alphabet printed around, and is rotated with a crown mounted in the center of the watch at 6 o'clock. A magnifying bubble window at 6:30 will display the ATIS letter prominently for easy visibility to the wearer. Using the ALPHABezel is applicable to many other scenarios outside of aviation and is not just intended for pilots.

Katherine will be available to the public February 14th through The Abingdon Co. website, www.TheAbingdonCo.com and then through the company's authorized distributor network. Retail price will be $549.00USD.
