Fortis launches its latest watch, a modern take on the classic aviation timepiece with the Flieger F-43 Bicompax. As with any pilot's watch, readability as a priority and everything on the watch has been carefully designed to look clean and clear while keeping the utilitarian look of a Flieger watch fully intact. Available on a steel bracelet or a leather strap, the F-43 Bicompax features a 43mm brushed stainless steel case, 200m/600ft water resistance, a bi-directional bezel with a 12-hour scale, and a UW-51 automatic chronograph movement with a 48-hour power reserve.
