FORTIS B-42 FLIEGER BLACK COLLECTION : Chronograph Alarm C.O.S.C ,Chronograph & Day Date Models

The adventures of the 21st century are based on the progress that has been made in technology and the ideas, that will extend the frontiers of humanity from land to air to the last final step, outer space. The established Swiss brand FORTIS, well versed in the history of aeronautics and space travel, uses its knowledge for developing precise chronographs for pilots, cosmonauts and astronauts. As the supplier of numerous professional flight squadrons and as the manufacturer of the official watches of the Russian space program, FORTIS keeps constantly in touch with pilots and space travellers. This strong contact allows FORTIS to constantly test the watches in the most extreme conditions, and has enriched the creative work of the company as well as gaining experience and knowledge that can be incorporated into new timepieces.

The functionally designed, PVD black coated steel watchcase topped by a double coated sapphire crystal, has a diameter of 42-millimeters whereas the matt black dial and the contrasting white dial design finely characterize the B-42 FLIEGER BLACK collection. The white luminous hands and hour markers ensure clarity and good legibility, even under diffused light. The glass case back allows inside view into the mechanics of the automatic movements and the C.O.S.C. tested FORTIS chronograph alarm calibre F2001-5 reveals the fascination of a unique micro mechanical masterpiece, one of a kind.

The side view of the B-42 collection shows its characteristic elements: screwed attachment lugs, protected push buttons, and a proportionally sized and easily accessible crown embossed with the FORTIS crown logo. All models are available with a sporty strap made of high-quality rubber with folding clasp, with a padded black leather strap with contrast stitching or with an elegant Louisiana crocodile leather strap, whereas both of them can be featured with an alternate butterfly folding clasp instead of the standard buckle.
