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.

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.

by John Sealander

Eterna Watches. Nothing by Watchmaking. Since 1856.For more than 100 years, the physicians chronometer watch has been as essential to many doctors and nurses as their stethoscope or thermometer. These specialized wristwatches feature a specially calibrated dial that allows doctors and nurses to quickly determine an accurate pulse rate. For this reason, Pulsometer watches have long been a favorite of military doctors and paramedics who have to quickly evaluate patients in the field. Eterna was a pioneer in the development of the modern doctor’s watch. In fact, Josef Girard, one of the company’s founders, was a doctor himself.

Buy Eterna Men's 1942.41.64.1177 KonTiki Heritage Chrono WatchIn 1942, when 37 industrial companies in Switzerland set up a foundation to benefit Grenchen hospitals, Eterna introduced what was to become one of the most popular doctor’s watches of all time: the Pulsometer. This revolutionary watch featured a clever supplementary scale that allowed doctors to get an accurate pulse reading in only half the time that had previously been required. Instead of counting 60 pulses, doctors only needed to count 30 pulses, with no decrease in accuracy.
