|The Fortis F-43 isn’t just the world’s first mechanical GMT alarm chronometer with dual power reserve.|
|It’s the only one!|
Fortis has a long history of innovation and technical achievement, but they’ve outdone themselves this time. The new Fortis Limited Edition F-43 is not only the world’s first mechanical GMT, alarm, chronometer with two separate power reserves, one for the movement and another for the alarm complication; it is the only one available anywhere. Moreover, this amazing dual-time alarm chronometer is fully certified by the Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres, a formidable achievement in its own right.
Few timepieces ever produced have been able to display the wealth of information provided by the F-43 in such a readable, easy-to-understand fashion. With a dedicated GMT window at 12 o’clock, a large triangle-tipped hand to indicate the alarm time, two separate power reserve indicators for the alarm and time functions, along with a date window with alarm “on-off” indication, this watch has it all. There is also a free-running small second hand at 9 o’clock; an AM/PM indicator at 1 o’clock, and 30-minute and 12-hour subdials for timing virtually any length event.
The mechanical complexity of the F-43 is unprecedented. The watch is powered by a proprietary 39-jewel Fortis calibre F 2012 alarm GMT movement. There are two independent spring barrels to power the alarm and time functions, along with a premium Incabloc shock absorber. There are four convenient protected stainless steel pushers to control the time and alarm functions and scratch resistant sapphire crystals on both sides of the watch.
The impressive 43mm two-piece stainless steel case is water resistant to 165 feet and has been fitted with a spectacular blue padded crocodile leather strap that matches the embossed blue numbers and indices on the silver opaline dial. Only 100 of these amazing timepieces will ever be produced. If you’re the type of person who appreciates mechanical perfection, you won’t want to miss this unique opportunity to acquire the world’s first and only mechanical GMT alarm chronometer.
