Flieger Professional Chronograph Reference: 705.21.11 FORTIS has been one of if not the best and most authentic manufacturers of pilot’s watches since forever. And that’s not just what FORTIS itself says, plenty of flying squadrons and pilots around the world confirm this, stating that the watches from the Aviatis Collection are their day-to-day companions. Following the long-lasting predecessor model, the 597.11.11 FORTIS Flieger Classic Chronograph, real fans can now rejoice in the more than worthy successor, the 705.21.11 FORTIS Flieger Professional Chronograph. Price: R43'090

Just like the FORTIS Flieger Professional option, the new FORTIS Flieger Professional Chronograph radiates in a new bi-colour housing that lets you take a look at the Valjoux 7750 through its glass back. The 43mm pilot’s watch has the compactness aviation relies on, despite its chronograph functions. Raised indices and numerals, coated with classic, FORTIS-typical green Super-Luminova, massively increase readability. This is complemented by the fluted Compteur face sections that are easily recognisable thanks to the sapphire glass with anti-reflective coating on both sides. The grooves are what gives the FORTIS Flieger Professional its very special flair that comes to the fore above all in varying lighting situations. Just as in the day/date option, the 705.21.11 FORTIS Flieger Professional Chronograph comes with the newly designed, very grippy crown which mimics the FORTIS brand crown. The classic FORTIS Flieger hour and minute hands with Super-Luminova coating and the radiating orange second hand are a further characteristics of a perfect pilot’s watch. All in all, FORTIS has once again proven, under the motto “Perfecting perfection”, that it is possible to use history to write the future.
