Product Details

New BaselWorld 2018 Release


The Fortis Aviatis Aeromaster has become one of our best selling Fortis watches, so we were very pleased to see at BaselWorld that the brand had added a new model with a twist.

The new Fortis Aviatis Aeromaster Old Radium uses a special color of SuperLuminova which closely matches the color of radium, a radioactive material that was used on watch dials and hands for many years before being banned as a health hazard (the SuperLuminova used on this watch has no radioactive properties).

Adding this color to the dial and hands creates a very interesting watch - one that you might have trouble not staring at for long periods of time because the colors work so well together.



This watch has a great bold steel case which definitely commands attention.  And the integrated tan strap design creates a clean finish leaving no gaps between the strap and the case.

But spend a bit more time looking at this watch and the standout feature emerges - the dial.

The dial is made with an amazing attention to detail.



The new Fortis Aviatis Aeromaster Old Radium features a "chiseled dial".  Fortis has employed special manufacturing techniques to create a multi-layer dial with engraved indices, retaining the classic design of earlier B-42 watches but adding a modern design.

Take a close look at the picture on this page: you'll notice that Fortis has chiseled the hour markers from the bezel chapter ring. This is the first time we have seen this technique and we like what we see.

Another commanding presence of this watch comes from a combination of size and legibility. The 42 mm satinized case makes the new Fortis Aviatis Aeromaster Old Radium a perfect size for everyday wear.

Screwed lugs offer additional security while on the wrist.




The Fortis Aviatis Aeromaster Old Radium features a sapphire crystal with double anti-reflective coating for ease of use in a variety of lighting conditions.

As an added benefit, this watch also features a day/date display at the 3 position with the day display in either English or German (you change the settings through the crown).


Important features of this watch include:

  • Applied numerals and indices
  • Layered dial for increased legibility
  • Sapphire crystal with double AR coating
  • Integrated strap design
  • Water resistant to 200 meters
  • Special old radium color for SuperLuminova


This watch is fitted with a light brown calf leather strap with white stitching and Fortis tang buckle.
