by John Sealander  

A Breathtaking New Interpretation of “Cool”

Fortis WatchesFortis has a long tradition of collaboration with well-known artists to create special, limited edition “art watches” that are based on proven Fortis mechanisms. Rolf SachsAlready, well known artists such as Michael Mattern, Andora and Rolf Sachs have created memorable designs that capture the imagination.

Now, the well known German architect and industrialist Rolf Sachs has created the Frisson, a spectacular new “art watch” for Fortis that surpasses the innovative and humorous “IQ” Watch, which he introduced with Fortis in 2008.

Frisson Means Chill or Shiver in French

Buy Fortis Unisex 595.11.82 Si 29 Limited Edition Frission Art Watch by Rolf SachsThe new Frisson, which literally means chill or shiver in French, is intriguing and completely different than anything you’ve seen before. According to Sachs, he was tired of the sterile quality of many modern watches Fortis Unisex 595.11.82 Si 29 Limited Edition Frisson Art Watch by Rolf Sachsand used hand-lettered numerals on the dial to soften and humanize the look.

The watch has a special finish on the mineral glass crystal that resembles an iced vodka glass just out of the freezer. Sachs wants to encourage the wearer to physically interact with the watch by wiping a wet finger over the dial or breathing on it to get a clearer view through the frosted glass.

This breathtaking design literally changes in appearance every time you touch it. The moisture of your breath brings clarity to the dial for just a moment, before it returns to being semi hidden by a veil of icy frost.

A brilliant choice of materials enhances the “cool” appearance of this distinctive and unusual timepiece. Each Frisson 25 jewel automatic Swiss movement is encased in brushed stainless steel and fitted with a transparent silicon strap with folding clasp. The watch features cool aqua colored luminous coated hands that glow softly through the frosted glass.

Fortis 659.27.92 Andora Emotions Art Chronograph Available in Limited Quantity


Fortis WatchesFortis, creators of innovative and technologically advanced Swiss timepieces since 1912, has commissioned eccentric POP artist Andora, to utilize his idiosyncratic creativity to imbue the expansion of their wildly successful Art Edition Series with uncommon character.

Buy Fortis 659.27.92 New Limited Edition Andora Emotions Art Chronograph WatchThe Andora Emotions timepiece captures the attention of both watch enthusiasts and art lovers alike. This limited edition collectors watch exudes the hallmark qualities of both the artist who designed it and the watchmakers who infused it with their technological mastery.

Incorporating elements of space exploration within their timepieces when possible, Fortis employs space age titanium in the construction of the impressive 42 mm case and bracelet, while contrasting soft black rubber accentuates the pushers and crown. The Andora Emotions is a day/date chronograph, powered by the impressive Valjoux 7750 with 25 jewels and 28,800 vibrations per minute. Its dial, bezel and bracelet clearly set it apart from other chronograph watches in the marketplace.

Andoras’ art, somewhat reminiscent of the Warhol era, boldly presents itself on the dial, bezel and bracelet. The dial’s dual sub chrono counters, are set against unique multi-eyed characters serving as their base, as well as a blue earth at 9. The multi-colored uni directional bezel beckons its wearer with a call to focus on the more positive emotions in life through words such as love, live, sing, and dance, as well as others. The unique artwork carries over to the bracelet in the form of hands displaying faces in their palms and the watch caseback conveys another inspirational message, reminding its wearer to “live your time and determine the content.”

In addition to being a work of art, the Fortis Andora Emotions chronograph watch features a sapphire crystal with dual sided anti-reflective coating, screw-down caseback, fold over deploying clasp and water resistance to 200 meters.

The Andora Emotions is limited to just 100 pieces worldwide. Gevril Group, the US agent for Fortis, has a small quantity of Andora Emotions limited edition watches available on a first come, first serve basis.
