The inspiration for this new watch actually came from feedback at our New York Road Show.
We noticed that many guests gave high marks to the automatic Cockpit One and Cockpit Two watches released last year, and we began discussions with Fortis to create a chronograph watch with these same styling elements.
The result - the new Fortis Aviatis Cockpit One Chronograph.
This watch starts with 43 mm case with finishes that are both polished and satinized.
Next, the feature that attracted so many visitors to the original Cockpit One and Cockpit Two automatic watches - a day and date display at 3 with a cockpit instrument design.
As an added benefit, you have the option to display the day in either English or German (you change the settings through the crown).
Pronounced, yellow numerals surround the inside edge of the case and stand out thanks to a raised dial ring. At 12 and 6, the chronograph sub-dials can be found.
A 30 minute chrono register sits at the top of the dial, while the 12 hour counter is located at 6.
All three watch hands, as well as the triangle at 12 are coated with SuperLuminova with a green night glow.
Important features of this watch include:
- Cockpit day/date display
- Complete chronograph functions
- Dual language day selector
- Water resistant to 100 meters
- Polished/satinized case
A special thank you to our guests in New York for their feedback on the design of this watch.
This watch is fitted with a Fortis black leather strap with contrast stitching.
