Swiss watchmaker Fortis is already known for making some of the most robust tool watches in the industry, but now they’re making some of the most sustainable, too. The brand has introduced a new addition to their Flieger line in the Flieger Midnight Blue, and Fortis claims it’s the first tool watch to be made from recycled stainless steel.

The Fortis Flieger Midnight Blue comes in two sizes, 39 and 41mm, and the case is made from fully brushed recycled stainless steel. The watch’s environmental friendliness also extends to the strap, which is crafted from sustainably produced leather that’s been tanned with olive leaves. Like other watches in the Flieger line, the Midnight Blue features Fortis’ illuminated Brixtrack hour markers to aid in low-light visibility along with the Synchroline markings by the 12 o’clock index that are meant to help pilots synchronize their watches more accurately. There’s also a circular-brushed bidirectional 12-hour bezel, 200m water resistance, and the watch is powered by the caliber UW-30 automatic movement. The Flieger Midnight Blue is available now from Fortis for $2,000.

Purchase: $2,000
