FORTIS the F-43 “Jumping Hour”
"Jump" once per hour
With its "Jumping Hour" FORTIS offers a second to none solution for a jumping hour watch. While usually a special hand moves forward, in this case a disc with a view window advances once per hour and indicates the hour digits on the underneath lying dial, while a center pointer counts the minutes.
Available in two model variations as an elegant execution with relief dial or in clear optics, with insight into the functionality of a mechanics which reminds of locking mechanisms of old locks.
