Flieger Heritage

The new Fortis Flieger F-43 Bicompax (named for its 43 mm case size) is a welcome addition to the Flieger Collection.

Fortis' Flieger Collection has been a cornerstone of the brand since its introduction in 1987, and their watches have served as pilot's tools for over 30 years.

The Fortis Flieger F-43 Bicompax was built to be a step above the rest, with a 12 hour GMT bezel, bicompax chronograph layout, and a color scheme designed to maximize both functionality and legibility in the cockpit.
 


A Focus on Functionality

This watch was designed to be a practical and useful tool for pilots.

The GMT bezel stands tall above the case.  Its height allows for easy use, even with thick gloves.  Rather than a stiff 120 click mechanism, the bezel features a smooth 24 click rotation to ensure accuracy when establishing the second time zone.

The watch appears even more distinct in low light, when green SuperLuminova X1 and Berlac Fluor Orange imitate a neon glow.

The Fortis Flieger F-43 Bicompax is not only capable of safe flight, but with 200 meters of water resistance the watch is also prepared for a water landing.



BRIXTRACK® 

The new Fortis BRIXTRACK® system places illuminated Brix on the circular brushed BRIXTRACK on the outer dial to provide maximum legibility.

This new design and illumination system dramatically increase legibility in low-light conditions.


SYNCHROLINE®


The new Fortis SYNCHROLINE® calibration system is designed to assist pilots when calibrating flight turns and vectors, especially those flying in precise formation.

Using Berlac Fluor Orange, the new Fortis Flieger F-43 Bicompax clearly indicates a +/- 5 second range at 12 to make critical adjustments to flight paths.



Special Packaging

This new watch is packaged in a custom black box with carbon-like lid.  By pushing on the lid a secret compartment can be accessed holding a microfiber cloth and watch tool.



Important features of this watch include:
  • Case made of brushed stainless steel
  • Sapphire crystal glass with AR coating on both sides
  • Water resistant to 200 meters
  • Date display at 6
  • Green SuperLuminova on the hour hand, minute hand, and hour markers
  • Berlac Fluor orange chronograph seconds hand
  • Multi-layered black dial
  • Bicompax chronograph layout
  • 12 hour GMT pilot's bezel
  • Screw down crown

This watch is fitted with a stainless steel Fortis bracelet with a sliding quick-adjust buckle.
