The 2019 Fortis PC-7 Team Aeromaster Editions

The 2019 Fortis PC-7 Team Aeromaster Editions


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.
