Fortis Flieger review and Christopher Ward comparison

Postby koimaster » May 31st 2011, 9:53am

My neighbor has a Fortis ‘Flieger’, or pilot’s watch. In his case, he used to be a flight surgeon, so it’s been up in a F18, unlike most of the Walter Mitty-types. Although I used to fly, my poor Christopher Ward has only flown passenger-class.

But I digress. This watch, which seems to be ref 595.11.46, is an ETA 2824-2 based design, using the undecorated base grade movement with Etachron fine regulator. It was running slow, so I volunteered to tweak it.

Unlike the the CW, Fortis uses a screwed caseback, so I got to use my new tool:
