The timepiece manufacture Fortis fascinates its devotees with its B-42 Stratoliner Chronograph Limited Edition model, a new version of the acclaimed B-42 pilot's watch.

The appealing novelty is set in a black PVD-treated stainless steel case, which measures 42 mm in diameter. The case of the new Fortis watch proudly reveals a multitude of 18-carat rose gold elements.

This noble material in employed in the manufacturing of the time-setting crown and chronograph push-pieces, located at 3, 2 and 4 oclock respectively. The model is built to be water-resistant up to 200 meters.

The case is outlined by a stainless steel bezel, coated with a black PVD treatment. Equipped with a tachymeter scale, the bezel forms an elegant frame around a black dial.

It is completed with large Arabic numerals at 2, 4, 8 and 10 oclock. The numbers are joined by light-toned hour-markers, which stand out against a dark background of the display. Both numerals and indexes contain a certain amount of gold.

The progression of hours and minutes is marked by gold-plated, partially transparent hands. The seconds are indicated by a slim central hand, also gold-plated. Additionally, the dial of the new B-42 Stratoliner Chronograph Limited Edition watch includes 12-hour, 60-second and 30-minute chronograph counters, featured at 6, 9 and 12 oclock correspondingly.

The day of the week indication appears in an aperture, presented within the 60-second chronograph counter. It is counterweighted by an exhibition window at 3 oclock, which serves to display the date. Protecting the dial is a glare-proofed sapphire crystal.

The back side of the case, also fitted with a sapphire glass, opens the view to the enchanting details of the Swiss-made self-winding ETA Valjoux 7750 movement. Artfully set with 25 jewels, it beats to the rhythm of 28,800 vibrations per hour and supplies a 42-hour power reserve.
