Fortis Marinemaster Watch Collection

Fortis 671.19.49 Marinemaster


by John Sealander  

Any serious sailor, diver, or adventurer wouldn’t go near water without one of these.

Fortis WatchesFortis Marinemaster timepieces have been a favorite of sailors, divers and naval officers ever since they were initially introduced in the early 1960’s. These professionals were quick to recognize that the Marinemaster was a serious timing tool that they could depend on in any situation.

Buy Fortis Marinemaster Watch CollectionOver the years, Fortis has continued to refine and enhance the Marinemaster design and many feel that the current collection of these superb sea-going timepieces is the best they have ever produced. Sharing a common heritage with the legendary Fortis B-42, the impressive 42 mm Marinemaster features an impregnable three-piece stainless steel case that is water resistant to 660 feet. To accommodate divers wearing gloves, the clearly marked unidirectional rotating bezel has extra large stainless steel lunettes instead of the typical knurled edge. This extra touch greatly enhances use of the bezel under water.

Fortis Blue Horizon Limited Edition Watch Collection


by John Sealander  

A Contemporary Approach to the Classic Aviator Chronograph

Fortis WatchesThe 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.

The Fortis Blue Horizon is available in brushed stainless steel fitted with a premium brown leather strap, or IP black with a black carbon fiber textured strap. Each timepiece in the collection is equipped with a scratch resistant, anti-reflective sapphire crystal on both sides of the watch, providing a clear view of both the beautifully crafted dial and the intricate inner workings of the precision Swiss made automatic movement within. The massive stainless steel case is water resistant to an impressive 669 feet.

Production of this exclusive chronograph has been strictly limited to 135 pieces per model. If you’d like a Blue Horizon 656.10.95 equipped with the classic brown leather strap, or the contemporary looking IP black Blue Horizon 656.18.95 with its modern carbon fiber styling, you need to contact your authorized Fortis dealer immediately. Watch aficionados and Fortis fans around the world are already adding these exclusive timepieces to their Christmas wish list, but only 135 lucky people will ever have the opportunity to wear one.

Fortis Aeromaster “Dawn” and “Dusk” Watch Collection


by Meehna Goldsmith  

The Two Moods of the Fortis Aeromaster

Fortis WatchesFortis built its reputation on independently crafting a Flieger (pilot) watch. No country asked them to do it; they took on the challenge themselves. Their Flieger watch was so impressive that the Russian space program made it the official watch of the cosmonauts. To this day Fortis holds the honor of outfitting the Russian flight program with their watches.

Because Fortis is so strong in the Flieger category it often gets overlooked in its other collections and that’s a big mistake. The brand applies the same attention to details, function and technology to other categories. The Aviatis category is definitely one to consider, especially the Aeromaster models. While the Aviatis (flight watch) pillar was originally developed to assist pilots in their journeys, the new “Dawn” and “Dusk” models are so elegant that they have you covered in any situation: professional, casual and dressy.

Fortis 655.10.18 Aeromaster “Dawn” Fortis 655.18.98 Aeromaster “Dusk”

The “Dawn” and “Dusk” have all the features of the Aeromaster that put a smile on pilots’ faces, such as a robust Swiss made automatic movement and stainless steel case, lumed raised indices and numbers that give a cool and modern green afterglow, and lumed aviation-style hands that harken back to the first aviator watches. And, of course, the de rigueur orienting lumed triangle surrounded with two dots at 12 o’clock.

Although the “Dawn” and “Dusk” don’t qualify as dress watches, particularly because of the 42 mm stainless steel case and the larger silhouette, the sunray finished lush brown dial elevates the “Dawn” and “Dusk” comfortably into an office or sophisticated setting. Both the “Dawn” and “Dusk” come in two iterations: One is a chronograph with a tachymeter that has day and date windows at 9 and 3 o’clock respectively in a stainless case, while the other has a cleaner look without the chronograph and tachymeter but keeps the day/date function and comes in a PVD case.

So what’s the difference between the “Dawn” and Dusk”? Brands are constantly speaking about their watches creating mood and emotion. Fortis cleverly incorporated this poetic idea in a more concrete way. While the “Dawn” with its lighter hues of browns represents beginnings, the optimism and light of a new day, the “Dusk” is more brooding, dark and mysterious as night sets in.

With the “Dawn” and “Dusk” Fortis combined its reputation and expertise with tool watches and presented one that not only is extremely functional but a beautiful timepiece for everyday wear. It even has the ability to express your mood — even if it’s only you who know it.

Historic Gevril First Generation Watch Collection

Historic Gevril First Generation Watches


by Adrian Herscovici  

First Generation

Gevril WatchesThe early 1990s were significant years for Gevril, culminating in the launch of the company’s first offerings of the modern era in 1994, a collection of timepieces with similar design characteristics in multiple sizes with different complications. Together these comprised the “first generation” of modern Gevril watches and represented the brand’s renaissance.

Gevril chose an ambitious path, launching half-a-dozen watch styles concurrently. To do so Gevril watchmakers decided upon a single, innovative case design. The most noticeable aspect of the construction was a threaded bezel with six recessed notches designed to fit a special tool to screw the bezel down. The benefit of this mechanical construction was that it allowed for customization by providing the ability to switch “decoration rings” in and out.

Gevril Men’s First Generation Watches

These decoration rings (the sides of the case, essentially) fit into the case around the dial and were available in stainless steel or gold to either match or contrast the case. The rings also had names — one was Sevilla, another Granada and a third called Cordoba — all Andalusian Spanish cities, a nod to Jacques Gevril and his role as Spain’s royal watchmaker in the 1700s. The threaded-bezel design was actually Gevril’s second patent of the modern era; the first was the innovative Unlocked Crown Indicator (UCI) system, which provided a visual queue on the dial that indicated whether or not the watch crown was screwed in properly.

In addition to the patented threaded bezel and UCI novelties, watches in the First Generation Collection shared several other attributes including cases, bezels and bracelets made of either stainless steel or gold — or a choice of several colored leather straps. Dial colors included silver, black and various two-tone combinations, and dial designs featured circular engraving and pomme hands with either Roman or Arabic numerals. Every First Generation watch was Swiss made.

Gents Automatic and Gents Midsize

The Gents Automatic was available in a 39 mm case or a midsize 35 mm version. Both shared similar traits including the threaded bezel and UCI indicator. The Gents series had 11 dial variations. The large Gents Automatic housed an ETA 2824-2 movement while the smaller Gents Midsize housed an ETA 2681 automatic, both of which were individually regulated and featured time-only functionality.

Chronograph

Another men’s 39 mm automatic, the First Generation Chronograph was a classic timer powered by a modular movement consisting of an ETA base and a Dubois Dépraz chronograph module. The Chronograph had a 12 hour counter at 6 o’clock, a 30 minute counter at 9 o’clock and a perpetual seconds counter at 3 o’clock.

Chronograph Chronometer

The Chronograph Chronometer was an enhanced version of the standard Chronograph. All of its movements were submitted to and certified by the Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres. Like the movement in the standard Chronograph model, the chronometer version featured a Glucydur balance wheel, Nivarox hairspring and Incabloc shock absorber. The watches had a date function and the word “chronometer” displayed on the dial. The 36.5 mm case was appropriate for both men and women.

DayDate and DayDate Midsize

Another model with the two case sizes, the DayDate came in a large 39 mm version as well as a 36.5 mm version for men and women. Both sizes contained an automatic Gevril C0110 movement based on an ETA 2892-A2. DayDate models had attractive concentric sub-dials with dual pointers: the outer track displayed the date and the inner track displayed the day. DayDate models also utilized the UCI display.

Moonphase

Another dual-time model in the Gevril First Generation Watch Collection featured a moonphase at 6 o’clock, the date at 3 o’clock and a home-time subdial at 10 o’clock.

15̊ and 15̊ Midsize

“Fifteen degrees” models featured the travelers’ complication — a dual time zone with day and night indicators that corresponded to home time. The standard size was 39 mm and the midsize was 36.5 mm. Both housed an automatic Gevril B0110 movement based on an ETA 2892. Both varieties utilized the UCI display. The 15̊ was a predecessor of the Gevril Serenade.

Ladies

Even though the movement inside the Ladies model was electronic, the case was the same with its threaded bezel and interchangeable decoration ring, albeit in a daintier 26.5 mm package. Twelve dial variations were available. The watch featured a battery end-of-life indicator to let the owner know when the ETA 956.112 quartz movement required a battery change. Each watch had an individual number engraved on the caseback.

The wide array of styles and complications in Gevril’s First Generation Collection was an indication of the elaborate plans the company had for its future. Whether the watch was mechanical or electronic, featured a simple or elaborate complication, or came housed in steel or gold, the Gevril First Generation Collection had something for everyone and was worthy of the traditions Jacques Gevril began centuries ago.
