Aeromaster PC-7 TEAM Chronograph
Ref: 656.10.55 Limited Edition set
Dynamic, precise and elegant are words used to describe the Swiss Air Force Aerobatics Formation Team: PC-7 that has been wowing spectators for decades with its prowess and performance.
Over 15 years ago Fortis was selected as a partner to develop a timepiece worthy of the team. As PC-7 approaches 30 years in the sky, Fortis has once again been selected to create a commemorative timepiece to acknowledge the team’s multitude of achievements.
Fortis’s AEROMASTER model was the natural selection for the collection because of its numerous aviation-specific features. However, several key additions and enhancements make the PC-7 limited edition collection something very special indeed.
The PC-7 collection features a Chronograph and a Day/Date model both limited to 300 pieces worldwide. Both the design and functionality have been carefully considered and created to reflect not only the look of the Swiss Airforce Formation team but also the precision of their craft.
If you are an aviation enthusiast and love watches, this is a collection you should definitely consider!
