The Classic B-42 Flieger has gotten itself a Big Date, thanks to the incredibly reliable Calibre F2014, which provides the watch with the ability to display the day at the 9 'o'clock position in either English or German. The timepiece is water resistance to a depth of 200 meters increasing its versatility. One can view the incredible movement via a Sapphire crystal case back. The dashing 42 mm PVD black coated or brushed steel case surround a handsome black dial protected by a double coated sapphire crystal. The Classic B-42 Flieger is very easy to read by day and by night, with clear white numerals, indices and hands coated with luminescence.
Now that the Classic B-42 Flieger has the Big Date, what about the ladies. No need to worry, Fortis will supply the ladies, for its 100th anniversary, in wonderful get up fit for a party or a romp in the park. The Ladies Timepieces are equipped with a high quality automatic movement. To the left of the inset, I present the Flieger Lady, a picture of subdued elegance and exceptional taste. To the right is the glamorous Official Cosmonauts Chronograph glittering with diamonds. But don't let this baby fool you, this timepiece has a functionality on par with more masculine counterparts. The Official Cosmonauts Chronograph is equipped with a highly efficient Swiss Valjoux automatic Chronograph movement 7750 and sports a tachymeter to measure speed of a moving object, in conjunction with the slender seconds hand.
The Fortis B-42 Flieger may have a touch of competition if the new Fortis B-47 BIG BLACK comes to town. A rugged uni-directional bezel rimmed with a gear pattern and armed with an innovative mechanics system developed by Fortis, may have quite a chance. The dark dial equipped with the day and date display is protected beneath a scratch resistant Sapphire crystal. And if by chance you think, that the Fortis B-47 BIG BLACK may not be noticed after all, you are quite mistaken. The B-47 BIG BLACK is 47mm in diameter and crafted from PVD coated steel and is water resistant to 200 meters.
