Rüdiger Stuttgart Watch Collection

2015 Mercede Benz GLA-Class Compact SUV


by John Sealander  

The city many consider the birthplace of the auto industry and advanced engineering is now the inspiration for Rüdiger’s most innovative timepiece.

Rüdiger WatchesStuttgart, Germany is home to both Mercedes Benz and Porsche. The first prototypes of the iconic Volkswagen Beetle were manufactured in Stuttgart and the city is home to industrial giant Bosch as well the Max-Planck Institute and German Aerospace Center. This global center for science, technology and manufacturing also provided the inspiration for one of Rüdiger’s most technically advanced mechanical watches.

The classically elegant Rüdiger Stuttgart Collection features an open-heart design that provides a view of the balance wheel and inner workings of the precision mechanical movement through two strategically placed portholes on the front of the dial. There is also a clear exhibition caseback for a different view of the mechanical movement at work.

The 40 mm Stuttgart incorporates the classic styling and clean lines that are characteristic of fine German timepieces. The three hand configuration features traditional blued sword hands with three blued steel screws securing the open-heart porthole. The three dimensional dial incorporates an intricate embossed diamond pattern in the center of the dial, surrounded by a raised chapter ring with attached metal indices. Completing the inspired design is a traditional fluted onion crown.

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 an authorized Fortis dealer today for more information.

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.

Johan Eric Fredericia Watch Collection

Fredericia,Denmark


by John Sealander  

What do a popular Danish king, a fortified Danish city,
and a beautiful ladies’ watch all have in common?

Johan Eric WatchesKing Frederick III, who founded the Danish fortress city of Fredericia in 1650, was once considered the most popular man in the kingdom. Frederick’s spirited defense of Denmark against foreign invaders earned him the respect of his countrymen throughout his reign.

The popularity of the fabled king and the success of the city that bears his name became the inspiration for an iconic new collection of ladies’ timepieces from Johan Eric. The spectacular Johan Eric Fredericia Collection exemplifies the sophisticated city that Fredericia has become. No longer just a military fortress, Fredericia is now a popular destination for international cruise lines and has become one of Denmark’s largest traffic hubs.

Could the watch that bears this city’s name become Johan Eric’s most popular creation? It’s entirely possible. Like its namesake, Johan Eric Fredericia timepieces transcend convention with classic good looks that appeal to young and old alike. This 36.75 mm masterpiece features a sparkling diamond cut bezel that emulates the look of pavé diamonds. With its minimal three-hand configuration, raised metallic indices, and three genuine diamonds at 12 o’clock, the Johan Eric Fredericia is unmistakable.

An IP yellow gold, IP rose gold, or silver sunray dial harmonizes perfectly with your choice of matching IP plated stainless steel bracelets. The watch can also be fitted with a premium genuine leather strap if you prefer. The universal good looks of the Fredericia Collection makes these surprisingly affordable timepieces perfect for both dressy and casual occasions.

A precision Miyota GL30 Quartz movement designed to provide years of reliable service powers this superlative timepiece. The Fredericia is water resistant to 99 feet and comes with a scratch resistant mineral glass crystal.

If you’re tired of wearing timepieces that immediately go out of style, start wearing a classic on your wrist. We can’t guarantee that your Fredericia will last as long as the Danish city it was named after, but we’re confident you’ll wear it proudly for many years. To see what this timeless classic looks like on your wrist, contact your authorized Johan Eric dealer today and ask to see the Fredericia watch collection.
