Now coming to the final release of the trio of Fliegers planned for 2020, Swiss luxury watchmaker Fortis has unveiled its F-43 Triple-GMT, a watch jam-packed with features a pilot — or any watch enthusiast — would appreciate.
Measuring a more robust 43mm, the case as well as the bracelet is constructed entirely from titanium, making it both incredibly lightweight and durable. In the brand’s normal fashion, the dial comes in a flat black with contrasting white markings for increased legibility, complemented by the fully-luminous Brixtrack indices and sword hands. The brand’s Berlac Fluor Orange Synchroline indicator sits above the 12 o’clock position, serving as a +/-5 second indicator allowing pilots to align when flying in formation, while a date indicator in the same color is placed at 3 o’clock. A fourth hand works in tandem with a 24-hour inner ring to give you GMT, while the outer 12-hour rotating bezel adds in a third time zone for the jet setters out there. Most interestingly, the watch is powered by the WERK 13 caliber — a movement crafted by Tudor’s own movement-production arm Kenissi — fully automatic, COSC certified, and with a 70-hour power reserve.
Fortis’ Flieger F-43 Triple-GMT is now available at select retailers for $4,150 USD. Head over to the company’s website to learn more.
