Watch Aficionados Will be Jumping For Joy
When They See This New Fortis Complication

Fortis WatchesFortis has a long-standing tradition of creating unique and original timepieces. The company has collaborated with leading artists and architects to create limited edition “art watches,” as well as developing its own imaginative ways to indicate the time. This year, a brand new innovation will join a growing list of unique Fortis complications when the company introduces the new F-43 Jumping Hours watch at the Fortis Dorint Hotel Basel exhibit, around the corner from Baselworld 2013*.

Fortis F-43 Jumping Hours Watch CollectionThe Fortis F-43 Jumping Hours watch is based on the proven Fortis F2024 automatic movement that powers several other illustrious Fortis watches. This precision mechanical movement also powers another Fortis watch with a jumping hour complication: the popular B-47 Mysterious Planets Timekeeper.

Fortis F-43 Jumping Hours Watch

The F-43 Jumping Hours watch comes in two versions: one with a black dial inscribed with hypnotic concentric white circles, and a skeletonized dial that reveals the jumping hour wheel and mechanism. Both versions of the Jumping Hours watch use the same movement and feature a jumping circular disc at 12 o’clock to indicate the hour. Minutes are indicated more traditionally, using a central minute hand. The beautiful minimal design is both innovative and easy to read.

The 43 mm stainless steel timepiece features a fluted screw-in crown, a scratch resistant sapphire crystal and an impressive water resistance of 656 feet. The black dial version is equipped with an integrated solid stainless steel bracelet, while the skeletonized version has been equipped with a beautiful black leather strap that has been specially fitted to the case.
