Product Details

The name says it all, the Fortis Aviatis Cockpit One's inspiration comes from the instruments found on the dashboard of a cockpit.

This link is seen throughout the watch and its various features but none more prominent than the wide cut date display at 3 which shows both the preceding and following dates in the window.

One of the more interesting design features of this watch actually improves legibility.  Notice that Fortis has moved the hour markers to the inner ring of the dial, placing focus on the minute markers in the outer ring.

The Fortis Aviatis Cockpit One features a polished bezel with a satinized case.

Pronounced, yellow numerals surround the inside edge of the case and stand out thanks to a raised dial ring.  Hour indices and numerals sit in a slightly recessed inner dial, along with a day/date display.

As an added benefit, you have the option to display the day in either English or German (you change the settings through the crown). 

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 date display
  • Dual language day
  • Unique time display
  • Water resistant to 100 meters
  • Polished/satinized case

This watch is fitted with a black Fortis calf leather strap with contrast stitching and Fortis tang buckle.

Totally unique flieger

"Totally unique flieger"

Verified Owner Comments: The Cockpit One seems to be somewhat of an overlooked model from Fortis, and that is a shame. I was searching for an automatic that I could wear everyday, and one that would be my second Swiss piece. I've fallen in love with fliegers, and while you can certainly find many classic pieces, I found the Cockpit series to be an incredibly unique combination historic and modern elements. The 41 mm case is a perfect fit for my 7.25 wrists, covering most of my wrist, and should fit anyone 6.5 and above quite well. The case is a combination of brushed and polished metal, and the antireflective sapphire crystal is absolutely gorgeous, reflecting the most beautiful shade of blue from the sun on the roof of my car when I'm driving. The back sapphire display case allows a look at the ETA 2836-2 movement with signed rotor - probably not the most beautiful movement, but tough, reliable, and one that I actually enjoy looking at. The case isn't screwdown, but it does wind very smoothly. The lugs an... - more details
