Aeromaster Steel Chronograph

Referenz: 656.10.10

For pilots who spend their lives above the clouds, items necessary for a hard day’s flying must be simple and purposeful. Good readability, robustness, anti-reflective glass and a glare-free case are the most important performance characteristics. Just like the original FORTIS B-42 model, the 656.10.10 FORTIS Aeromaster Steel Chronograph takes up the reins of these properties and perfects them, right down to the smallest detail.

The clear readability of the white numerals and indices on the black face illuminate green in the dark and are sunk flush with the outside ring of the face in a timely process, thereby improving readability by a multiple. Despite the chronograph function, FORTIS has managed to maintain this readability. The purist design of the permanent small second display in particular has a big role to play here. The Valjoux 7750 doesn’t just the hour and minute hands, and the date display, it also offers the chronometry-typical start-stop function. Specially produced for the models in the Aeromaster series, FORTIS offers the right wristbands to perfectly match the shape of the housing.
