Hands-On with the Fortis Aeromaster Steel Chronograph

During Basel World 2016 Mike previously gave you a synopsis of the most recent curiosities we’ve seen from Fortis this year. Its a well known fact that we have a weakness for the brand. Not on the grounds that we need to, on the grounds that lately the company completely changed its direction. Also, we are adoring it. I will be clear with you, Fortis to me has consistently been an intriguing brand, a name that has been around for more than 100 years now yet I was unable to stay aware of their collections and distinctive Patek Philippe Reviews It was somewhat packed and flooding in my opinion.

Luckily, I wasn’t the one in particular who felt about the brand that way, the folks at Fortis likewise thought it was the ideal opportunity for a change. A year ago we previously revealed about their change and on the off chance that you recollect Mike and I both surveyed a Patek Philippe Reviews from their assortment ( here and here ). It was just sensible from us to return this year and check whether they remained on this way or returned to their old ways. I’m glad to say that Fortis kept its assertion and proceeded with the change. On the off chance that we were dazzled about what we saw a year ago, this year we really adored the new models. Like, every one of them. To such an extent that without further ado we concurred with Andreas, Fortis’ deals chief, that on the off chance that we find the opportunity we might want to put our hands on some the new curiosities. That opportunity has arrived and here’s my audit of the new Fortis Aeromaster Steel Chronograph from their Aviatis collection.

Aeromaster Steel Chronograph

As you may recollect, part of the recreation of the brand a year ago was that they partitioned their offered models into 4 classes dependent on the 4 components; air, water, land and space. The Aeromaster is, as the name demonstrates, falls under the Aviatis assortment which assembles Fortis’ pilots’ Patek Philippe Reviews Based on Fortis’ unbelievable B-42, the Patek Philippe Reviews offers the typical capacities and highlights as its archetype in an exceptional look. Nothing terrific simply a usable, clean planned, extraordinary looking device Patek Philippe Reviews that can be a companion for the regular person just as a professional.


Let’s be clear; the Aeromaster Steel Chronograph is certifiably not a little Patek Philippe Reviews The case is 42mm in distance across without the crown yet as you can see structure the photographs it is really huge adding another 3mm to the width. You feel the size anyway more by the thickness of the piece, which is around 15mm. Try not to misunderstand me, I love greater Patek Philippe Reviews and even with the previously mentioned sizes the Patek Philippe Reviews doesn’t feel gigantic or uncomfortable on the wrist. In actuality, the cowhide lash breaks the vigor pleasantly and since it’s quite flimsy melts the size-issue down rapidly. The case has no bezel, it is fundamentally equivalent to Fortis utilized with the past B-42 models, with bored hauls and sinks holding the tie place.

If you turn the Patek Philippe Reviews over, you have a great perspective on development with the rotor through the screw-down presentation case back. Kindly don’t expect any Cotes de Geneve improvements on the development however. Fortis revealed to us noisy and clear that this is an apparatus Patek Philippe Reviews and ought to be treated thusly. It would look bad for them to over-brighten their developments. They look shocking, unadulterated and modern as it ought to be. Around the presentation window you can see the chronic number, the reference number and obviously the model family: Fortis B-42 Chronograph. To wrap things up the water opposition which is 20 bars (200m).

On the rotor you locate the acclaimed Fortis logo with the crown and their motto: World’s first producer of programmed wristwatches. The entire case is brushed as it ought to be with a pilot’s Patek Philippe Reviews and the crown sports the updated Fortis logo.


The gem of the Aeromaster Steel Chronogrpah is sapphire with against thinking about covering the two sides, which is an or more and something I for one love in a Patek Philippe Reviews They are substantially more obvious, there is no reflection at all and to wrap things up, for all your wrist-shooters, simpler to photo. Under the precious stone obviously is the substance of the Fortis Aeromaster Steel Chronograph, the element with the most character; the dial. The easy plan of the case is to be proceeded on the dial. Matte dark base tone with white brilliant lists and an exemplary Valjoux 7750 dial design. You discover the day-date at 3, the 12-hour chrono pointer at 6, persistent seconds sub dial at 9 and the 30-minute sub dial at 12 o’clock. Over the date window you can see the Fortis logo and underneath the window the writings “Chronogrpah programmed” just as the standard Swiss made at the base, where it ought to be. That is it. Not jumbled, or over-planned at all.

The seconds sub dial even has a white artwork that looks like a crosshair of the old military aircraft. This little detail that honors the archetypes and carries on the legacy of the Aeromaster Steel Chronograph can be seen at 12 o’clock with the raised triangle and the 2 specks. This isn’t Fortis’ own, once upon a time on pilot’s Patek Philippe Reviews the 12 o’clock pointers were set apart in such manner that pilots would have the option to unmistakably decide the time and direction of the Patek Philippe Reviews and dial even in low lighting conditions. The triangle just as the spots, the numbers and lists are completely raised and covered with Superluminova with a green glimmer. The blade state of great importance and moment hands are the 3rd praise highlight. Something you seldom see on current Patek Philippe Reviews except if it’s a Fortis. Simply think about the Fortis Flieger with their unique sword hands.


As I have just referenced over, the Patek Philippe Reviews is furnished with the incredible Valjoux 7750, which is a solid workhorse of a development. From Tissot to TAG Heuer, IWC, Franck Müller, Panerai, Breitling, Longines and even Omega use as well as yet utilizing this development. That by itself is a declaration that what you have inside will stand the trial of time. It has a 48-hour power hold when completely twisted, it’s a 25-gem programmed chronograph with day-date work. The greater part of the old Fortis chronographs were outfitted with the Valjoux 7750 and they have demonstrated to be the correct choice, as indicated by the brand. They revealed to us that they were so glad and happy with the development that they didn’t briefly considered changing to another supplier.

The Official Cosmonauts Chronograph that is the Patek Philippe Reviews of the Russian Cosmonauts is likewise created with the 7750 so their explanation was if that is sufficient for them, it should be sufficient for the Aeromaster Steel Chronograph. There is truly very little to say about it, on the off chance that you have just possessed a Patek Philippe Reviews with such a development you know precisely the thing I’m discussing. On the off chance that you still can’t seem to come across one, trust me, you’ll not be disappointed.


Even however the Patek Philippe Reviews is publicized with the earthy colored cowhide tie, Fortis offers a wide range of choices for the Aeromaster Steel Chronograph. You can pick between a crocodile or an elastic tie, a metal arm band on the off chance that you extravagant a touch of steel on your wrist or even get the calfskin execution lash Fortis presented a year ago. That is a sweet choice and notwithstanding the way that it’s calfskin it is water safe and totally feels like a manufactured tie, I mean positively. It is dark with a checkered surface regardless of whether you purchase the Patek Philippe Reviews with some other choice it tends to be bought independently as a second tie choice. You can get it straightforwardly from any Fortis retailer (much the same as all the others lashes obviously) or by sending Fortis Switzerland an email.

The earthy colored lash I got the Patek Philippe Reviews on comes with a clasp (no deployant, which is discretionary) and it’s not simply your normal cowhide tie. The end is framed to completely fit in the middle of the carries and to the case. In addition to the fact that it is bended as it’s the ideal match to the roundness of the case it really mixes with the shape and thickness of the carries making it look indivisible. The presentation lash just as the crocodile and cowhide variants are only the equivalent, giving an ideal fit and look to the Fortis Aeromaster Steel Chronograph.


I’ve been wearing this Patek Philippe Reviews practically constant (with the exception of on  Speedy Tuesday , sorry Fortis) and I need to say that it has been an impact up until now. It was among our #1 oddities this year and I was unable to stand by to put my hands on one. So when the bundle at last showed up and I unpacked it, it went straight onto my wrist.

I asked my companions and associates their opinion about the Fortis Aeromaster Steel Chronograph and they adored the Patek Philippe Reviews even the ones who have a little wrist. As I said to start with, this is a device Patek Philippe Reviews A pleasantly designed and manufactured tool for experts however it can likewise serve you consistently paying little heed to your calling. All things considered this model with the earthy colored calfskin tie is 2780 CHF (€2500), on the presentation lash it’s somewhat more at 2930 CHF (€2650) and this is the very same cost on the off chance that you need it on a deployant tie. The silicon and elastic choice interferes with you at 2990 CHF (€2700). As you would envision you need to venture the most profound into your pocket on the off chance that you need it on a metal wristband, for this you need to leave 3050 CH (€2760) at the retailer. Alright, so by and by; a Swiss made, Valjoux 7750 controlled, pilot’s chronograph from a trustworthy old Swiss brand for somewhat over €2.5k must be an extraordinary arrangement. Regardless of whether you pick the most costly alternative you scarcely go over €2.75k. This is brilliant value/esteem proportion particularly in the present occasions when companies (not really just Patek Philippe Reviews companies) attempt to overrate their things and get in a higher classification. Fortis remained consistent with their foundations of creating extraordinary however moderate Patek Philippe Reviews that don’t need quality since they are less expensive. I trust the company will remain on this course and keep on astounding us with incredible watches like the Fortis Aeromaster Steel Chronograph.

Please remember to visit  and stay tuned for some more Fortis inclusion in the close future.
