Two ansers....

: Two very basic questions, from someone who has
: watched the BWs from a distance,
: occasionally gotten interested, but never
: really learned much about them: -- wouldn't
: the "Sternzeit reguliert" keep
: time differently -- either in the
: time-of-day function; in the chrono
: function; or in both??

I'm pretty sure that it is in both. The movement runs a bit faster, since a "star time" day is a bit shorter. I believe the difference is not much more then a few minutes a day. The chronograph when running, runs at the same rate, and will therefor also run a bit faster.

: -- do all the BWs have the "flyback"
: function??

Yes they do.

: thanks for further information . . . some day,
: I must get my hands on one of these guys.
