Fortis Aviatis Watch Collection

Fortis Aviatis Watch Collection - 635.10.91


by John Sealander  

If you’re looking for a great pilot’s watch,
then look at what real pilots are wearing.

Fortis WatchesMany people make aviation inspired timepieces, but working pilots can quickly spot the genuine article. That’s why Fortis and aviation have become synonymous over the years. Fortis understands what aviators’ need. It’s not surprising that over 60 celebrated military flight squadrons around the world, including the famous Swiss Air Force PC-7 aerial acrobatic team, proudly wear this iconic brand.

Many would argue that Fortis practically invented the aviator timepiece. The practical designs, exemplified by the superb Fortis Aviatis Collection are known for their strength, dependability, and large, clearly legible dials. Fortis aviation timepieces were just what early pilots needed in the cockpit and they’re still what they need today.

The Fortis Aviatis Collection represents over 100 years of Fortis technical innovation and firsts that continue to this day. Headlining the Aviatis Collection is the astonishing new Fortis Daybreaker. This superlative 43 mm C.O.S.C. certified chronometer is the world’s first and only automatic alarm GMT chronograph. With over 500 micro-mechanical parts, this 39-jewel, Swiss made, twin-barrel automatic mechanical timepiece is both a testament to the watchmakers’ art and a practical tool that any seasoned aviator would be proud to wear.

The expansive Aviatis Collection includes a diverse selection of three-hand and chronograph models designed to meet the needs of modern pilots and adventurers. The F-43 Stealth, F-43 Recon, Aeromaster, Blue Horizon, Flieger, Cockpit, PC-7, Phantom F-4F, Nocturnal, and Daybreaker models all share one important thing in common: they are reliable, durable, and easy-to-use timing tools designed for working professionals.

These superb, limited edition aviator timepieces feature large, extremely legible dials; anti-reflective, scratch resistant sapphire crystals; bright Superluminova hands, numbers and indices; tough 316L stainless steel cases; and world-class Swiss made mechanical movements. Aviatis timepieces are not fashion accessories; they are world-class timing instruments.

Depending on your needs, Aviatis Collection timepieces can be equipped with a solid Fortis stainless steel bracelet, a comfortable caoutchouc strap, or a luxurious topstitched leather band. All Aviatis timepieces come in a distinctive Fortis presentation case and carry a two-year manufacturers warranty.

Even if you’re not a pilot, it’s comforting to know you’ve got a timepiece that real aviators prefer. To put one of these high flying timing instruments on your wrist, contact an authorized Fortis dealer immediately and ask to see the Aviatis Collection. When you strap on one of these beauties, you’ll feel like you’ve earned your wings.

Fortis Private Label Squadron Watch Program

Fortis Sikorsky Squadron Watch


by John Sealander  

Fortis Squadron Watches have become a military tradition. Now your own organization can participate in this exclusive program.

Fortis WatchesFortis timepieces are considered part of the uniform by many military men and women. Soldiers, sailors, and aviators from around the world have learned they can depend on Fortis in critical situations. These durable, extremely accurate timing tools have become so popular in military circles that they have been selected by an elite group of aeronautical squadrons as their official squadron timepiece.

To meet the unique needs of the world’s fighting forces, Fortis established a special division that could equip these elite military squadrons with exclusive limited editions of select Fortis timepieces.

These exclusive squadron watches were produced in limited quantities and were emblazoned with each squadron’s official insignia and slogans on the dial. America’s Fighting Falcons, Germany’s 72 Westfalen squadron, the Greek Hellenistic Tigers, the Hungarian Air Force, and many others have all worn customized Fortis Squadron Watches.

Fortis Private Label Watches for Non-Military Organizations

The exclusivity of a Fortis Squadron Watch quickly made it one of the world’s most desirable timepieces. You couldn’t just go into a store and buy a squadron watch. For the pilots and crew who wore these timepieces proudly, they were part of the uniform. It wasn’t long before other non-military organizations wanted their own version of these popular squadron watches and Fortis rose to the occasion.

Now any type of organization can honor their members or employees with an exclusive one-of-a-kind Fortis timepiece. The new Fortis Private Label Squadron Watch Program makes it easy to personalize a selection of popular Fortis timepieces, including chronographs, limited artist editions, aviator, and diver styles with your organization’s logo or special emblem. Fortis can even engrave the case back of your watch with a unique inscription or design.

Fortis Extends Private Label Watch Business to North America

by Bill Shuster

Fortis WatchesFortis, one of the world’s leading fine watch brands, is expanding its successful private label business to companies, retailers, schools, teams, clubs, and other groups in the US and Canadian markets and is attracting them with very competitive pricing.

The respected Swiss brand, which marks its centennial in 2012, made the world’s first automatic watch and is known for technically-precise pilots watches and chronographs. Fortis watches are the official timepieces on the International Space Station, both for Russian cosmonauts and American astronauts; the authorized watches of the Hungarian Air Force; used by professional pilots, and airman in US flying squadrons. Those squadrons, until recently, were the primary American customers of Fortis’ long-established private label business, which represents 25% of its total production, making watches for clients worldwide.

Now, Fortis is opening up its Private Label Program to any US or Canadian business or group wanting fine Swiss timepieces for members, staff, or clients at costs far below their respective retail prices.

“Not only does a client get a top-level watch with a 100-year rock-solid reputation,” said Miriam Tress, Fortis Brand Manager at Gevril Group, “but buying in bulk gets a great price. We reduce prices substantially for our private label customers. Of course, the final cost will depend upon quantity required, colors used and any add-ons, such as engraving the watch back (e.g., “2012 top sales division,” “National Pennant winners, 2012″).

Fortis offers private label clients a wide selection of mechanical timepieces, as well as watches from its lower-retail Fortis Colors quartz line, and only 25 watches are needed for a minimum order. Delivery can take from two weeks to six months, depending on the number of watches ordered and the extent of customization requested.
