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.
The strong Flieger/Pilot fan base demanded the reinvention of the legendary 1980’s design. and so, inspired by the original FORTIS Flieger/Pilot model, the Pilot Professional range was born. This stunning collection of watches and chronographs embodies the next generation of aviation watches combining classic features and modern technology.
Design novelties in the Pilot Professional range include: a new, easy grip crown, newly developed case for added comfort, enhanced dial details such as contrasting hands and high-grade luminosity and exhibition case back.
Each piece is recognised for its clean simplicity, strong reliability and high functionality – this is why they are continually known as a pilot’s preferred partner.
