These functions are controlled via the big crown at the 4 o'clock position. When the crown is screwed down, the altimeter doesn't work, and the timepiece stays water-resistant up to 100 meters (330 feet). Conversely, when unscrewed and pulled out, the altimeter can be adjusted to show the wearer's altitude via the yellow indicator. Push the crown back in and the indicator displays whether the owner of the watch is moving up or, in the paratroopers' case, down.
