Fortis Flieger F-41 and F-39 Midnight Blue Models

After the successful launch of the Flieger collection in 2020, Swiss luxury watch brand Fortis presents Flieger F-41 and F-39 Midnight Blue Models.

Fortis Flieger F-41 and F-39 Midnight Blue Models

The Flieger is one of the most iconic creations amongst all aviation watches. First created in 1987 the original Flieger set the tone for all subsequent pilot models. It embodies the design principles that remained to this day and as such became one of the cornerstones within the brand’s collection.

What makes the new models outstanding is the focus on sustainability. The sturdy Flieger case comes in 39mm and 41mm sizes and both are made from recycled steel. The Indigo Aviator Strap is from sustainable resources, olive leaf tanned and hand made in Germany.

The unique elements such as the Brixtrack® and the Synchroline® are again an essential part of the new models. A further highlight of the 2021 versions is the brushed Midnight Blue dial with orange accents. Both models come on an Indigo Aviator Strap, which was created from sustainable resources, olive leaf tanned and hand made in Germany.
