by John Sealander

After 100 years of watchmaking history, Fortis understands that
planning for the future always begins with a respect for the past.
Fortis WatchesFortis is a pioneer in the watch industry. For over 100 years the company has been shaping the future by building on their heritage of traditional craftsmanship and technical innovation. Fortis developed the world’s first automatic wristwatch in 1926. They introduced the first widely available waterproof watch in the early 1940’s. In recent years, the company has become famous for space proven timepieces that are still standard equipment aboard many missions to the International Space Station.

To celebrate this unique heritage, Fortis is creating a new line of Terrestis timepieces that are designed to re-introduce todays watch aficionados to these milestones in watchmaking history. The flagship of the new Fortis Terrestis Collection is the Fortis Tycoon. This classically elegant men’s timepiece combines state-of-the-art technology with a genuine reverence for the traditional Swiss craftsmanship that made the Fortis brand what it is today.
