Tachymeter

[watch] A tachymeter scale is a scale sometimes inscribed around the rim of an analog watch. It can be used to compute a speed based on travel time or measure distance based on speed. The spacings between the marks on the tachymeter dial are therefore proportional to 1/t where t is the elapsed time. The function performed by a tachymeter is...
