Product Description

As the official supplier of the Russian Space program, FORTIS had the pleasure to create a watch for the anniversary of one the most exciting events in the history of human space travel.


FORTIS belongs to the traditional Swiss watch brands, which has been active since its foundation in 1912 without interruption. As the world's first manufacturer of automatic wristwatches in 1926, FORTIS went down in watch history by producing the first automatic watch, the legendary Harwood, in a series production. In the middle of the '50s and '60s, to the climax of the automatic wristwatches, FORTIS enjoyed a good reputation as well as a worldwide brand awareness and distribution network.

In the '80s, FORTIS was known as a manufacturer of functional, reliable mechanical wristwatches. In 1994, after endurance tests on the borderline of modern physics, the Star City Training Center chose the FORTIS Official Cosmonauts Chronograph as part of their Official Cosmonauts' equipment. Since then, FORTIS automatic wristwatches have proven their space capability in several missions, even outside of the protective space station in outer space.

Based on the intensive collaboration with the experts in space travel, a unique new watch was developed: The FORTIS Official Cosmonauts Chronograph Automatic Alarm. A real spin-off from space and a world's first, the company came out with the FORTIS chronograph automatic with a mechanical alarm. With the development of this movement, FORTIS has earned a lot of approval from competitors and the professional world.

Exactly 10 years after the first official flight, FORTIS was reconfirmed in 2004 as the official wristwatch supplier of the Russian Space program on board of the ISS still today. FORTIS will also accompany space travelers for the first Mars mission as the official supplier of the Mars 500 mission, which started in June 2010 and will take more than one and half years to complete. Crew members can rely on their FORTIS Automatic watches during this long test trip.

As a longtime partner of space organizations, FORTIS invests in modern technologies and ensures in this way the future of the 100-year old brand in an ever-changing watch market.

    If you like pilot watches and want a solid piece built by a reputable brand, this Fortis fits the bill. I didn't get mine from Amazon so check on the warranty information before considering a purchase. This is the anniversary version of their GMT Spacematic and because if that it has some extra writing on the dial and a special design on r case back. WhilenI prefer as uncluttered of a dial as possible, the anniversary markings don't distract much from the face of the watch ad the caseback is interesting and also has the limited number or 300 pieces clearly marked. Other than that, the only thing that differentiates this model is the strap/bracelet. I don't know if the leather strap version comes with 1 steel bracelet or some nato style straps, but thee version I bought came on a steel bracelet and accompanied with 2 nato straps. The sandblasted case/bracelet give it a soft, subtle feel that I really like as it contrasts some of my polished-steel watches. Since I live abroad and travel quite a bit, the GMT function is also nice to have. Lastly, it is by no means a small watch, but the case wears slightly smaller than most 40mm watches and the unique angled lugs make it looke good even on smaller wrists. I have had it for about a month and it is running at about +9 seconds per day. It is regular and within the standards of what an automatic of this quality/price range should be at (the movement is ETA)
