New Formula One Racecar

by John Sealander  

Italians know that a Scuderia is not an ordinary stable.
Watch aficionados know that it’s not an ordinary watch.

GV2 WatchesIn Italian, the word Scuderia refers to a stable reserved for racehorses. That’s why Italian drivers and racing teams adopted the word as their own to describe their country’s top motor racing teams. Today, there are dozens of Italian “Scuderia” teams, including some of the world’s most successful Formula One teams and drivers.

Buy GV2 Scuderia Watch CollectionWhen GV2 decided to develop their own version of the quintessential drivers watch, they adopted the Scuderia name in honor of Italy’s proud racing heritage. The boldly styled GV2 Scuderia has everything today’s racing driver needs. The oversize 50 mm IP black case features a racing style dial that is easy to read at a glance while behind the wheel.

The large, color coded chronometer pushers can be used even while wearing driving gloves. In addition to its easy-to-use chronometer functions and a handy tachymeter scale on the bezel, this full-featured driver’s timepiece also includes a power reserve, an alarm, a second time zone hand, a day of the week indicator, and an extra large big date indicator.

The impressive Scuderia is powered by a reliable and trouble-free Swiss made ISA 8173 Quartz movement and is water resistant to 330 feet. A black, carbon fiber style dial has been paired with brightly colored hands and numbers, along with a matching genuine calfskin carbon fiber patterned band to enhance the racing appearance.

Fortis F-43 Recon Watch Collection

Fortis 7012092 F-43 Recon Watch


by Adrian Herscovici  

Prepared for Takeoff

Fortis WatchesFortis is known for its progressive approach to watchmaking, for its technical achievements and for its host of mission-oriented instruments for cosmonauts, pilots and everyday adventurers. The Fortis Aviatis collection is a series of purpose-built pilots’ watches with plenty of all-around polish. Among them is the F-43 Recon, a favorite with aviation professionals.

Two watches make up the F-43 Recon series: the first is a big day and date version (700.20.92) and the second is a day and date chronograph (701.20.92). Both share a number of physical attributes beginning with a 43 mm stainless steel case and a large fluted crown, which is easy to operate when making changes on the fly. The sapphire crystal on the front has an anti-reflective coating on both sides and the exhibition caseback provides a view of the Swiss mechanical automatic movement. Each case features an outstanding water resistance rating of 660 feet.

Similarities between the two styles extend to the dial, too, including the silver coloring and fluted concentric rings. All of the numbers, hour markers and hands are blue, which contrasts well overtop the light silver. Subsidiary text appears in thin black all-caps. The large sword-shape hands are coated with Super-LumiNova as are the hour markers, offering excellent visibility in various light conditions. A traditional pilot’s orientation triangle appears at 12 o’clock recalling classic pilot watches of the past.

Both F-43 Recon watches are limited editions of 2012 pieces per watch, and both come mounted on a tan calfskin leather strap.

The differences boil down to complicationschronograph versus non-chronograph. The F-43 Recon chronograph is powered by an ETA 7750 automatic movement and, as such, features the day and date in small apertures placed side by side at 3 o’clock. The chronograph sub-dials measure elapsed minutes (up to 60) and hours (up to 12). Even with the additional readouts, the time is easy to read thanks to the large hands. A tachymeter scale appears on the flange. The non-chronograph version offers exceptional legibility with its big day, big date and uncluttered dial, and has useful 24 hour markings at each hour index that provide quick reference to military time.

Many Fortis watches are dedicated to aviation and space professionals, but Fortis understands that the human desire to push boundaries extends to every field and every expedition, not just to the pioneers of flight. Add an F-43 Recon to your collection today and begin your ascent. Contact your authorized Fortis dealer today for more information.

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.

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.
