This large-dial altimeter has been a mainstay of the skydiving industry. The Altimaster II was originally designed by Stephen L. Snyder almost 50 years ago. The Altimaster face is internationally recognized.
This order is for the altimeter only (no mounts, unless added above). Other photos in this description show the optional add-on mounts available through ChutingStar.
The U-Bracket Kit with Wrist Strap can be added to make this into a wrist-mount altimeter. Or you can add just the U-Brackets to mount this to a pillow mount. A pillow mount is also available from ChutingStar.
Steve Snyder introduced the Altimaster concept of: 0-12,000' which was founded on the belief that most people are accustomed to reading a clock face, and that a freefall takes about 60 seconds -- one sweep of the second hand. The needle points at the numbers and does not cover them up.
The Altimaster II contains a durable mechanism made from temperature compensating metals for minimal friction and precision accuracy with an altitude range of 18,000 feet.
A unique version of the Altimaster II was created especially for President Bush.
The Altimaster II is fully supported by Alti-2 Inc. and sold with a ten year warranty upon registration. The Altimaster II is in stock for immediate shipment.
