Inspired by the life of a pilot both in modern times and during the pioneering days of aviation, the RZE Fortitude Pilot is an inspired timepiece that is sure to impress. Designed around the experience of professional airline pilots, the RZE Fortitude Pilot reflects the olden days with its oversized crown, a necessity for pilots of the past that wore thick gloves that made it difficult to turn smaller crowns. It also shows off a design reminiscent of the blades of an airplane’s turbine for added personality.
The timepiece is not only aesthetically pleasing but also durable with UltraHex coating to raise the hardness that tests up to 1200Hv. It is designed to outlast all of the tactical tests and trials of pilot life while still looking smart enough to be worn while on the ground.
The RZE Fortitude Pilot features a solid Grade 2 titanium case that boasts UltraHex coating to raise its hardness. This 41-millimeter case shows off the indexes with ease, as well as the unique sand-textured sandwich dials. The dials are finished with a Grade A BGW9 Swiss SuperLuminova coating, making them visible in low-light settings. During the day, you’ll be able to read it with just as much ease thanks to the Super Anti-Reflective coating on the inside of the sapphire crystal glass. Securing the watch to the wrist is a strong titanium bracelet complete with a stainless steel buckle.
