The Megapode was the largest and most technical watch Marc designed for Ikepod. The Megapode was developed for pilots and incorporates the American ASA flight computer. It uses two logarithmic scales that can be operated to calculate fuel consumption and distances, and to convert units. The start and stop buttons for the chronograph are unconventionally placed on the left-hand side of the dial, which Marc felt made a more balanced design, allowing pilots to access them more easily, as most pilots wear watches on their right wrist.
