Barometer Instruction Manual Needed

Help. My boat came with this barometer (photo attached) and I'm not sure of the brand or make. I need to re-set it but don't have an instruction manual. Can anyone identify this baromoter and point me in the right direction for an instruction manual? On the back it says "Made in France", and in the centre of the back it has "CE". Also on the back on the right hand corner, it has "Buzzer" and an on/off switch. On the front bottom right hand corner, its says "Special Marine" and "Altitude".

Thanks,
Geoff

That's a Vion Marine A4000 series weather station. Yes made in France. Not sure which specific model but you can choose for yourself from here. Now, the logo is different but it appears to be the same station. I checked for the specific to see if it can be found and I think it's just rebranded or an older logo style.

I didn’t see any Manuals on their web-site, VION - équipements de navigation ; but you could try contacting Vion:

salesdpt@vion-marine.com <salesdpt@vion-marine.com>

A list of sales points is not yet available for Aus & NZ.

I got a feeling that this Weems and Plath could be very similar. Have a look.

Good catch, Paul !!!

Very spooky!
In Greek mythology, the Gorgon (meaning "dreadful") was a terrifying female creature (ie: Medusa), who would turn anyone who laid eyes upon her/it to stone.
By way of contrast, The name Gordon is of Old English/Gaelic origin, meaning large fortification and/or round or triangular hill.

Good luck

Paul
It appears that there is one manufacturer who puts different labels on the same product.

Ask Westerbeke about that practice.
