Product Details

We love this new watch from Fortis as it draws from some of the very first Fortis watches designed for pilots, and is commonly referred to as a B-Uhr design.

If you take a close look at the picture of this watch, you'll notice that the minutes are emphasized and not the hours.

A B-Uhr (Beobachtungs-uhren) watch is a navigational timepiece, with the earliest designs dating back to deck watches produced in the 18th century.

The overriding characteristic is extreme legibility, with an inner ring for the hours and large minute markers and numerals.  The pointer or triangle at 12 is another feature found in almost all B-Uhr designs.

Important features of this watch include:

  • White numerals and indices with SuperLuminova
  • Sapphire crystal front with exhibition case back
  • Water resistant to 50 meters
  • Blued sweep seconds subdial at 6
  • Date display at 6
  • Ultra thin case design (10 mm)

This watch is fitted with a black Fortis Performance strap with blue stitching.
