Fortis Aquatis Diver Watch Collection

Fortis Aquatis Watch Collection - 671.15.45


by John Sealander  

When the sea is unforgiving, you need a watch that has your back.

Fortis WatchesVeteran sailors have known for centuries that the sea can be treacherous and unforgiving. That’s why the best seagoing timepieces have always been uncompromising. When your life could depend on knowing exactly how much oxygen you have left or on setting the correct course for shore, sailors and divers need a timepiece they can depend on under the worst of circumstances.

Fortis has become a favorite among seagoing adventurers for precisely these reasons. With a Fortis Aquatis timepiece on your wrist, you can be confident that the sea has met its equal. Most Aquatis timepieces feature tough 316L stainless steel cases that are water resistant to an impressive 660 feet. They have screw-down crowns, with clearly marked unidirectional rotating bezels that make it easy for divers to calculate their remaining oxygen supply. These superlative timing tools also feature one of the brightest Superluminova displays available anywhere, making them easy-to-read in even the darkest waters.

Fortis Marinemaster

With its clearly superior design and an abundance of functional features, the popular Fortis Marinemaster exemplifies the ideal diver watch. Among the first things you notice about the 42 mm Marinemaster are the oversized lunettes on the unidirectional color-coded stainless steel bezel. These large, knurled lunettes provide an easy-to-grip surface even when using diving gloves, adding an extra level of confidence for the serious diver. The Marinemaster dial, with its large, uncluttered display and bright white Superluminova numbers and indices is ideal for anyone who spends time on the water.

Fortis B-42 Diver

For divers who prefer a more traditional look, the superlative 42 mm Fortis Diver shares many of the Marinemaster’s features, without the oversized lunettes on the rotating bezel. Both models are available in three-hand and chronograph configurations, with a choice of a fitted Fortis stainless steel bracelet, a comfortable silicon strap, or a luxury topstitched leather band. Certain models are also available with a lightweight titanium case and bracelet.

Fortis Big

Completing the Fortis Aquatis Collection are the unconventional Big models. These oversized 47 mm monsters share the Marinemaster’s unique oversized lunettes, while adding a specially designed unidirectional rubber coated bezel with raised three-dimensional numbers. Unique to the Big is an innovative semi-transparent dial that exposes both the day and date in separate windows, as the two date wheels rotate in opposite directions.

Fortis Cosmonautis Watch Collection - 638.28.13


by John Sealander  

After 20 years in space and over 100,000 orbits around the earth, Fortis continues to set the standard for astronauts and cosmonauts.

Fortis WatchesThe timepieces in the Fortis Cosmonautis Collection share an impressive history. No other brand has spent as much time on the wrists of working astronauts and cosmonauts. These space proven timepieces have been standard equipment on space missions as far back as 1994 when a Fortis Stratoliner was worn aboard the Russian MIR space station. This initial venture into space was so successful that Fortis created the Official Cosmonauts Chronograph expressly to meet the needs of future space explorers. This iconic watch is still being worn today.

Fortis space watches were never intended as commemorative editions. They are real space rated tools for working astronauts. To this day, every timepiece that displays the “Yuri Gagarin Space Academy” logo on the back has been tested and cleared by Fortis for actual use in space.

Fortis Official Cosmonauts

Astronauts and cosmonauts depend on these extremely accurate and dependable tools to complete their missions, and their long-term success under severe weightless conditions is a big reason why the Russian Space Agency continues to equip all cosmonauts and astronauts attending the Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center with a space rated Fortis Official Cosmonauts Chronograph. This iconic timepiece has made its way to the International Space Station many times and is still standard equipment for many space station crew members.

One of the best things about Fortis space rated timepieces is that you don’t have to be an astronaut to own one. Fortis has always offered a limited number of these exclusive timing tools to the general public. Today, the exciting Fortis Cosmonautis Collection represents the most comprehensive selection of genuine space watches on the planet.

Fortis Spacematic

You can chose from iconic masterpieces like the famous Official Cosmonauts Chronograph or Spacematic, or select new space rated timepieces like the impressive Monolith. Most models in the Fortis Cosmonautis Collection are available in both three-hand and chronograph configurations to meet your personal needs. Depending on the model you select, your Cosmonautis timepiece can be equipped with a solid Fortis stainless steel bracelet, a luxurious leather band, or a comfortable silicon rubber strap.

Many Cosmonautis watches are based on the popular and time-tested Fortis B-42 and all feature superb Swiss made automatic mechanical movements that carry a two-year manufacturers warranty. While these fine timepieces have been designed and tested to operate flawlessly in the airless environment of space, they are also water resistant up to 660 feet.

Choose from any available Monolith, Official Cosmonaut, Spacematic, Mars 500, or Pitch Black model with confidence. These are timepieces that working astronauts and cosmonauts wear proudly and all share a heritage that includes over fourteen space missions and 100,000 orbits around the earth.

If you are an astronaut, you probably already have a Fortis Cosmonautis watch. If you’d like to look like an astronaut or wear one of their working tools, just contact your nearest authorized Fortis dealer and ask to see the real thing: a genuine space-rated Fortis Cosmonautis timepiece.

by John Sealander  

In 2015, these rich, robust red-brown tones will add a sophisticated, earthy elegance to any wrist.

Pantone has selected Marsala as its 2015 color of the year. Like the hearty, fortified red wine that gave this intriguing color its name, Marsala is a subtly seductive shade that adds warmth and sophistication to everything from fashion, to home furnishings, industrial design and beauty products. It’s not surprising that some of the world’s leading luxury brands have already chosen to feature this tastefully elegant shade on some of their most popular timepieces.

Ferragamo, Versace, Gevril, JOWISSA, and Johan Eric are all offering a beautiful selection of Marsala hued timepieces for 2015. From the luxurious Ferragamo Gancino or Versace V-Signature models to the affordable Johan Eric Orstead, Marsala’s signature red-brown tones will enhance and flatter almost any outfit.
