Incidentally, because I know it will be asked, without the pitch wheel the only way to set the pitch (other than altitude hold) is to use the control wheel steering to manually set the airplane to a certain pitch. When you release the CWS button, the autopilot holds the pitch.
It also does a fair job in IAS hold, as long as it's smooth.
I still remember clearly my first flight in an 840 that didn't have that pitch wheel. I spent the entire flight searching the cockpit for it, and couldn't believe it didn't have one! But, sure enough, it didn't, and my 980 doesn't either.
According to my original price list, "Manual Pitch Turn Controller for AP-106" was an $800 option. Altitude preselect was $4,550.
