    Super Pilot with Slide Rule - still available?

    Does anyone know if this is still available? I don't know much about it, but here's what I know:

    - Made by Zeno but under the Rendex name (I think this is their made in Asia brand?).
    - I think it is called the 'Super Pilot no. 7'.
    - Its a chrono and has a world time indication.
    - It has a Pilot's slide rule bezel.
    - It has a Miyota auto movement, the OS20-4H, the 4H is the version of this movement with the date at 4 o'clock (but I have read somewhere that this watch may also have come with a quartz movement?).
    - Its pretty big... case 47mm (50mm inc. crown), lug width 24mm.

    Anyone heard of this?
    Is it still available?
    What sort of price were these going for?

    Cheers,

    Internet only as far as I'm aware, eBay is your best place.

    Yeah. I understand... but more interested in this because it is a good combination of elements and, believe it or not, a veteran pilot with a lot of pilot watch experience told me he actually uses this watch for flying (occasionally). :shock:

    I'm more interested out of curiosity than anything else.

    Eddie, were these internet only from the beginning or did Zeno sell them through their normal sales network at some point?

    As far as I know, Rendex has only every been an Internet/Asian market brand. I've never been offered them in any Zeno catalogue.
