Fortis has a rich tradition in producing Flieger (pilot) watches.
Many would argue that the brand was one of the first to bring back and highlight this style of watch beginning in the mid 1980's with their Flieger Classic line.
Welcome to the latest series of Flieger watches from Fortis, the new Fortis Flieger Professional Series.
One of the most interesting features of the new Fortis Flieger Professional Series is actually one of the smallest - the crown.
Fortis invested a lot of time to get the new crown design just right. Their term for this crown is a mouthful - the "new brand representative crown".
What they mean is that this new crown design is not only highly functional, easy to grip and stylish, but is actually designed in the style of the Fortis logo.
Housed in a 41 mm case, the Fortis Aviatis Flieger Professional sports a matte black dial with applied indices and numerals.
These numerals, as well as the hour and minute hands, are coated in a special green tinted SuperLuminova, providing crisp legibility in any lighting.
The watch also features a new case design and finish - the bezel is highly polished while the case is brushed.
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:
- Special Fortis crown design
- Day and date display
- Water resistant to 100 meters
- Double sided AR sapphire crystal
This watch is fitted with a black Fortis calf leather strap with white contrast stitching and Fortis tang buckle.
