NB Yäeger – ILS.
NB Yäeger ILS automatic wristwatch which refers to and mimic technical instruments found in aircraft. The features on the watches are genuine working features which emulate the cockpit functions, but do not carry out the same function - impossible to do in the small wristwatch case. ILS stands for the instrument landing system. It indicates the pilot the distance from the runway before touching down. A broad red line and three thinner red lines continuously approach the runway and symbolically touch down 4 times a day. The indicator moves as the time advances. For aircraft and wristwatch enthusiasts though, the functions add a very unique looking and attractive novelty to the everyday wristwatch, which in itself is an reflection on the enthusiasms, interests or even the desired aspirations of the person who wears the watch.
