Product Details

The Fortis Aviatis Aeromaster Old Radium Chronograph 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 Fortis Aviatis Aeromaster Old Radium Chronograph 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 Chronograph a perfect size for everyday wear.

Screwed lugs offer additional security while on the wrist.

The Fortis Aviatis Aeromaster Old Radium Chronograph 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).

This watch features complete chronograph functions with sweep seconds at 9.

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
  • Complete chronograph functions

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

Great shop, good service!

"Great shop, good service!"

Verified Owner Comments: The watch was not in stock, but watchbuys could get it in the nick of time. They kept me always posted during this time.

The watch is amazing (my 3rd Fortis) and good value for the money. Definitely not my last!

Can imagine that Fortis will increase the retail prices within the next few years under new management. Thanks to watchbuys!

Excellent purchase

"Excellent purchase"

Verified Owner Comments: Excellent quality and keeps time perfectly. I like the retro styling with a modern touch! Leather strap very rigid and needs to be broken down. Definitely a nice addition to my collection.

Service and purchasing process was easy and fast secure delivery much appreciated.

Well worth the price point.

"Well worth the price point."

Verified Owner Comments: The chiseled numbers combined with the old radium color give the watch a stunning appearance. It exudes a level of quality found in watches 2-3 times the price.

Ordering And delivery couldn’t be easier or quicker. Another effortless Watchbuys purchase.
