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.

- Cockpit date display
