My New Fortis B-42 Pilot professional chronograph

Post by John »

As long as I'm waiting for the CW Pilot, I bought a Fortis Pilot.
It's a great watch and it was on my wishlist for a long time.

This one with the orange accents will make a great couple with the CW with the blue accents on the dial.

This one measures 42mm so I don't think the 44mm of the CW Pilot will be too big for my wrist.

Hum, If I was flying in IMC, I could use that watch as part of an instrument let down but it should not be considered as an aviators watch.

The orange works really well with the black.

Great looking watch John. Funny how impatience makes us do things.

Back to watches - I have to say that is a magnificant piece and have been looking for Fortis for a while. Although, my pennies are being saved for either a Sinn U2 or Glycine Airman 18, and will be waiting for C7 Rapide Automatic to become available
