TIMEKEEPING IN ALL CONDITIONS
The Fortitude combines titanium with an anti-magnetic case to help prevent the effect of electro-magnetic fields caused by smartphones, computers and various devices that could mess with your watch’s accuracy. This watch is 5 times more resistant to magnetic fields than the ISO 764 magnetic-resistant watches standard for wristwatches, built to keep on ticking in all flight conditions even at 40,000 feet.
It's extremely resistant to magnetic fields, preventing the effects of time lag.
ALL MISSION, NO COMPROMISE.
The Fortitude was engineered to help you take your landings, not distract you from them.
Designed to make a statement, yet be rugged and functional, the Fortitude boasts large legible hands and boldly printed indexes filled with ultra-bright Super-LumiNova for quick time reading. The sand-textured sandwich dial adds depth and character paired with the polished titanium casing.
The GRADE A BGW9 Super-luminova is an upgrade from our previous models, making visibility even more exceptional at night.
SAFE FOR WATER LANDINGS
ULTRA-SECURE WATER-RESISTANCE SYSTEM
Inspired by the “Remove Before Flight” tags that need to be removed as part of the procedure for takeoff, HexCrown is the custom crown designed with a red line to ensure that the crown is fully screwed down for maximum water resistance.
With one look, you can tell exactly if your crown is fully screwed on. For peace of mind all day long.
FORGED TO FLY
ENGINEERED FOR PEAK PERFORMANCE
Inspired by jet turbines, the Fortitude has a bezel design that keeps you focused on what matters, through all varieties of weather. And thanks to our signature hands & indexes, multi-layered dials, anti-glare finish, scratch resistant crystal and extra-large crown for easy operation even with gloves on, you can always feel confident that you're clearly prepared for takeoff.
STRAP IN FOR MAXIMUM COMFORT
ON-WRIST COMFORT REDEFINED
Fortitude. The name is symbolic in believing in your ability to withstand the turbulences in life, and the bracelet is designed and built with this philosophy in mind.
Our exclusive squeeze release flip lock closure is lighter than standard flip locks due to its titanium build, and is an upgrade developed from customer feedback to improve our bracelets.
The Fortitude was made to fly. To push limits. To break records. And to make you feel like anything is possible.
