We love the bold steel case of this watch. It definitely
commands attention. And the integrated 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.
When we first saw this watch at the Fortis booth in BaselWorld, we could not put it down. The dial is made with an amazing attention to detail.
The new 2016 Aeromaster Series features dials that are "chiseled". 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 a perfect size for everyday wear.
Screwed lugs offer additional security while on the wrist.
The Fortis Aviatis Aeromaster 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
This watch is fitted with a light brown calf leather strap with matching stitching and Fortis tang buckle.
