Fortis - Flieger F-43 Bicompax



Product Details


The Flieger is one of the most iconic models amongst all aviation watches. First created in 1987, it embodies one of the cornerstones within the brand’s collection. The Flieger is made for those with a clear and settled attitude towards life – those brave enough to skip a trend every now and then. This watch is made for people who want to enjoy it for decades to come – regardless of fashion or status.

Whenever pilots unite to a formation it is essentially important that all of them are precisely aligned. To do so FORTIS designed the SYNCHROLINE®. Within a +/-5 second range the pilot can now adjust to his teammates. Illuminated Brix that are applied on the circular brushed BRIXTRACK® increase the average readability-speed, especially in lowlight conditions. Having a chronograph with only a minute counter, indicated by the bright Berlac Fluor Orange, reduces the complexity of the dial which increases the overall reading speed. Flieger F-43 Bicompax: stainless steel and clarity – a beastiful beauty made for those who do.
