Overview
The Adriatica factory is located in Camorino/Ticino, the Italian part of Switzerland.

One of our key objectives is to create new designs and models that perfectly suit the changing styles of our generation while, at the same time, keeping prices competitive.

We offer watch ranges from dress to chronograph models. The company specialises in gold, gold plated, PVD plated, titanium and steel watches. Adriatica produces both mechanical and automatic self-winding models which are powered by ETA & SELITA movements. We stock a wide range of quartz watches containing high-tech movements such as Ronda, ETA & ISA.

Adriatica , as a trade mark, is closely associated with a Swiss Watch Company established in 1852 in Montilier. It was The Swiss Watch Company who created the brand and started manufacturing Adriatica watches in 1931.

In 1962 Adriatica factory relocated to Biel/Bienne & Basel in Switzerland . Here they continued manufacturing ladies and gentlemen’s watches, specialising in the classical gold plated range. This is also when the new, revolutionary men’s collection “Adriatica World Champion” was created .

Since 1999 Adriatica watches are being manufactured in our own watch company in Dongio, then in 2010 our headquarter has been relocated to Camorino/Ticino. Great effort and concentration has been put into perfecting the manufacture processes and improving the styling of already existing models. The implementation of new technologies and the creation of modern pieces of watchmaking art has become another of their key objectives.

Today Adriatica is an internationally recognised brand available in many countries such as United Kingdom, USA, Germany, Ireland, Portugal, Hungary, Egypt ......

Adriatica has been a member of The Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry since December 2006.

“Swiss Made” embodies a concept of highest quality, accuracy, reliability combined with elegance and originality of design. This is exactly what Adriatica is about.

This lovely clock operates using a highly accurate and reliable battery-powered Swiss quartz movement. It has hour, minute and second hands and a rotating bezel which can be used as a 1-hour "count-up" timer.

Adriatica No.09.8040.3 Quartz Aircraft Clock with 10-Hour Timer
This lovely clock operates using a highly accurate and reliable battery-powered Swiss quartz movement. It has hour and minute hands and a rotating bezel which can be used as a 1-hour "count-up" timer. It also has a stopwatch with 10 hour timer - perfect for timing you flights.

This elegant and classic clock is extremely simple to operate and looks fantastic in a sailplane or aircraft instrument panel, or on your office desk. It is a great conversation piece. It mounts into a standard 57 mm (2 1/4") instrument hole.

Its clean and classy look are timeless. It is sure to be the one instrument you move from sailplane to sailplane over the years.

Features:

  • Hour and Minute Hands (time): Large, easy-to-read sword-shaped minute and hour hands
  • 10 hour timer
    • Second Hand: Long, white, thin pointer, in the center - points to 12 (0) when the stopwatch is reset to zero.
    • Minute Hand: Small sub-dial in the bottom of the main dial. It counts up to 30 twice every hour of stopwatch operation.
    • Hour Hand: Small sub-dial at top of main dial, The hour hand also acts as a 1/10 second indictor when the stopwatch is stopped during the first 30 minutes. For example, it points to seven to indicate 7/10 of a second when stopped. It spins continuously for the first 30 seconds of stopwatch action (because it looks cool), then stops at zero (10) to indicate the number of hours. The hand points halfway between 0 and 1 after the first 30 minutes of stopwatch action, and so on. After 30 minutes, the 1/10 second indication while stopped no longer functions - because the hand is indicating the number of hours instead.
    • Start/Stop Button: Top-Left (11 o'clock), Press once to start the stopwatch. Press again to stop (pause) the stopwatch.
    • Split/Reset Button: Top-Right (1 o'clock), Press while the stopwatch is running to hold the second hand with the stopwatch still running so you can note the "lap time". Press it again and the second hand will "catch-up". Press this button while the stopwatch is stopped to reset all the hands to zero.
  • Rotating Bezel for "count-up" measurements up to 1 hour. - Rotate the bezel to align the bezel's zero mark (red triangle with white dot) with the clock's minute hand. The bezel markings indicate the minutes from zero to 60. The bezel can only be rotated to the left (counter-clockwise).
  • Continuously running second indicator: Red, three-bladed propellor (small sub-dial on the right side of the main dial), The second indicator ticks once every second. Since it doesn't point in any particular direction, it can't be used to precisely set the clock's seconds.
  • Set Knob (top) - Pull-out and rotate to set time, The top left and right buttons can be used to adjust the zero points of the stopwatch hour, minute, and second indicators while the set knob is pulled-out. The top-right button is used to select the desired hand and the top left button is used to move the hand to its zero position. Short presses move the hand by one step. Long presses move the hand quickly.
  • Mounts using the screws holes for a standard 57 mm (2 1/4") instrument hole
  • The base plate should be mounted on the pilot side of the instrument panel - to allow the set knob and stopwatch buttons to be operated easily.
  • Mounting screws and nuts are included (provided by Cumulus Soaring, Inc.)

Tips
A customer complained that the stopwatch hands did not point directly to the top/home position when the stopwatch was reset. That is normal and very easy to fix. The Manual for Rhonda 8040 shows how. It involves pulling-out the adjustment knob and then pressing the buttons. Once set, they should never need to be reset - now that you know how the zero position can be adjusted.
