    This is how I described the Hour Angle Watch in the Time and Navigation exhibit label text:

    In the mid-1930s, the Longines-Wittnauer watch company marketed a line of watches designed in collaboration by Charles Lindbergh and P. V. H. Weems. The Hour Angle Watch sped computations for determining celestial lines of position. Its bezel and dial allowed navigators to read off the hour angle of a celestial object at Greenwich, eliminating a simple but troublesome calculation.

    BTW, I do not have a background in celestial navigation, so this exhibit has been a very interesting learning curve for me.
