The first and longest indicated 100's of feet, the second indicated 1000's of feet, along the outer scale, and the third and smallest indicated 10,000's of feet. on the inner scale. The knob is used to adjust the altimeter to the barometric pressure as displayed in the small window at the 6 o'clock position.
