Founded in 1912, Fortis is known for its rough, practical watches and the brand’s dependable association with aeronautics and space investigation. The brand began producing watches for the PC-7 team more than 12 years prior. The PC-7 team is the Swiss Air Force aerobatics show team. Their flight shows underline the capacities of the Swiss Air Force. Curiously, all PC-7 propeller airplane tumblers perform with the team as a side action as they are on the whole full-time contender fly pilots. In 2019, as the PC-7 team commends its 30th anniversary, Fortis is delivering another pair of PC-7 Team watches.
As you would expect for pilot watches, the PC-7 restricted editions are firmly and sober-mindedly made watches. Two renditions are accessible: a chronograph and a day-date model. The utilitarian yet flexible plan comes in a 42mm case that radiates a vigorous vibe. The strong caseback is engraved with the PC-7 team planes. The water-obstruction of the watch is 200m or 20 ATM. The regal blue dial highlights applied metallic planes in jewel arrangement. The radiant hands and applied hour markers/numerals give precise timekeeping taking all things together conditions. The sapphire precious stone highlights twofold sided against intelligent covering to expand show contrast and legibility.
The Fortis PC-7 Team Chronograph is fueled by a notable and solid workhorse, the programmed ETA Valjoux 7750. For this form, the Valjoux 7750 customary 6-9-12 design comes with a day-date show. The subsequent model, the Day-Date, houses another ETA attempted and-tried development, the programmed type 2836 (a day-date adaptation of the ETA 2824). The chronometer exactness of the two developments is ensured by the COSC.
The watches are mounted on a steel three-connect wristband with a movable collapsing clasp. They are conveyed with an extra blue Cordura (an elite texture) tie with red sewing and a bunch of screwdrivers to trade groups. The uncommon version bundling likewise incorporates a movement pocket and the official PC-7 team 30th-commemoration patch.
Both models are restricted editions of 300 watches. The individual restricted version number is engraved on a plate fastened on the case at 9 o’clock. The chronograph will be accessible as of mid-June and will retail for CHF 4,450. The date-date will be accessible as of mid-August and will retail for CHF 2,450.
