Fortis is a Swiss watchmaker with a history dating back to 1912. Throughout its history, Fortis has maintained a reputation for quality craftsmanship and innovation, particularly in the realm of aviation and space-themed watches.

The brand's connection to space missions, including its role as a supplier to the Russian space program, has contributed to its iconic status in the watch industry. Fortis was founded by Walter Vogt in Grenchen, Switzerland. The company initially focused on producing watch movements. However, it didn't take long for Fortis to become known for its quality timepieces.

What’s On Offer

Fortis watches are appreciated for their robustness, durability, and historical connection to space exploration and aviation, this watch is a perfect example of that.

Paired with a quality aftermarket blue leather strap the expertly finished and bead-blasted 40mm stainless steel case is in very good condition with only odd light blemishes. The mint black dial displays 3 subdials for the 60s, 30min and 12h chronograph function with increments of orange seen on the seconds and alarm hands. 

Turning the watch over you can find a display case back housing the Fortis calibre 2001 (a Valjoux 7750 base movement). This well-built movement also houses a mechanical alarm function. The multi-dynamic movement allows for 46 hours of power reserve.

Fortis as a brand continues to produce watches that cater to professionals in various fields and watch enthusiasts who value toughness and precision and emphasize durability and functionality in its timepieces. 

You don't often see this reference with these functions on the pre-owned market so be quick if you love this watch as much as we do!
