A Contemporary Approach to the Classic Aviator Chronograph
The Fortis name, which means “strong” in Latin, has become synonymous with strength and toughness among the world’s elite military forces. Ever since the early days of military aviation, pilots have chosen Fortis timepieces to wear while on duty. Many of these superb timing tools have been popular with pilots for so long that they are now considered classics.
As a tribute to its aviation heritage, Fortis is introducing a spectacular new limited edition collection: the Blue Horizon. These beautifully crafted aviator chronographs effectively combine a contemporary esthetic with the distinctive retro appeal that has made Fortis aviation timepieces famous. On your wrist, you experience the best of both worlds: the retro appeal of the Fortis aviation heritage, along with the fashion forward flair of the season’s hottest colors.

These 40 mm aviator chronographs feature a nostalgic brown sunray dial with bright blue Superluminova hands and indices for a contemporary touch. The overall effect is sensational, turning this dependable tool watch into a dramatic fashion statement. There are three well-placed sub-dials for timing events, along with separate windows for the day and date. A tachymeter scale inscribed on the chapter ring, distinctive applied Arabic numbers, and an oversized knurled setting crown flanked by two stainless steel pushers complete the harmonious design.
