The 1980’s Flieger or Pilot models from FORTIS set a worldwide milestone for aviation watches. To this day, they are an essential part of FORTIS’s DNA thanks to their durability, reliability and legibility.
Inspired by the principles that guided the original FORTIS Flieger/Pilot model, the Pilot Classic range rises to the occasion. This stunning collection of watches and chronographs embodies the next generation of aviation watches combining strong features with modern technology.
The Pilot Classic represents a completely new design of a pilot’s watch housed in a modern classic case. An homage to the early days of aviation and its heroes. The simple but powerful design with large numerals, positioning triangle at 12 and large hands allow for perfect legibility.
Each piece is recognised for its clarity, reliability and high functionality – this is why they are continually known as a pilot’s preferred partner.
