Fortis Flieger Cockpit Watch Collection


by John Sealander  

A Vintage Aviator Style Timepiece with a
Trouble-Free Modern Mechanical Movement

Fortis WatchesVintage watches are in. And nobody does vintage better than Fortis. Fortis practically invented the aviator timepiece, and pilots and astronauts still depend on these superbly crafted timing tools today.

Buy Fortis Flieger Cockpit Watch CollectionEarly aviator watches were characterized by a large uncluttered dial, so pilots could easily keep track of the time while monitoring critical cockpit instruments. The first generations of these watches were often fitted with World War I cuff style straps, which initially became popular when smaller pocket watches were adapted to wear on the wrist. Later, NATO nylon straps were found to be more practical, but both styles are still popular today.

Fortis not only provides a option of military style straps with Cockpit timepieces, there are also three exciting color combinations available. Each of these 40 mm stainless steel aviator watches features a two-color dial that divides a 12-hour day into two clearly differentiated six-hour segments.

The unique luminous three-hand configuration highlights the all-important minute scale, while placing the hours in a smaller circle at the center of the dial. The large, two color minute scale makes events easy to time even under adverse lighting conditions. There is also an easy-to-read date window at 3 o’clock, adjacent to a large knurled stainless steel setting crown with the Fortis logo.
