    This watch face is an original creation the second entry in my "Pilot's Toolkit" series.
    I have seen many attempts at turning Altimeters into watch faces. Yet, I had to create this one.

    In my humble opinion, they all failed to capture two basic principles of this iconic flight instrument:
    - It must be 0 based. The whole point of the altimeter is to know your offset from the ground / 0.
    - It should not contain 2 digits numbers. You have never seen 10, 11 or 12 on an Altimeter :)
    This is an attempt to capture the "spirit" of a classic avionics Altimeter as opposed to be a yet another Bell&Ross replica.
    The small and big hands indicate hours and minutes. You may notice a slight bevel effect on the hands tails.
    Seconds are visible via an actual see-through window on the right, which reveals a spining disc. I kept the IN.Hg index (normally a pressure offset) to replicate the actual instrument.
    Date is displayed in the upper left window on a rotating bezel.
    Accent color (used to draw date) is configurable via on-watch menu.

    Battery Level is represented by the striped area. If you see all of it, you are at 100%, half at 50% and so on. It does not provide a detailed reading but preserves the look and feel.

    Ambient mode removes everything but hands tips and main ticks, rendered with a light green glow.
