Face the New.
More than one hundred years of watchmaking have been anything but static. Our belief in sustainability and Fortis’ ground-breaking technical achievements has been writing our success story since 1912.
A clear demonstration of this restless, curious attitude is that Fortis watches are the official instruments of all cosmonauts.
On its 100th anniversary Fortis introduced the world’s first and only automatic alarm chronograph GMT.
Of course one might ask “Why?” Because sometimes one has to Face the New
The Fortis World
Cosmonautis – For the love of the Cosmos and for astronauts
Aviatis – For the love of aviation and for the wrists of pilots
Aquatis – For the love of water and underneath it and for those who love to visit there

The Fortis world is Complete
Cosmonautis, Aviatis, Aquatis and Terrestis – each is a highly specialized collection of its own, mastering its sphere’s diverse requirements and challenges.
Since their orbital baptism of fire aboard the space station MIR in 1994 Fortis watches have belonged to the narrow selection of all cosmonauts’ equipment.
After 100,000 orbits around the earth, and the longest stay in weightlessness of any watch, Fortis embodies pure reliability in time and space.
Fortis is the reliable choice of over 60 flight squadrons worldwide, including the Swiss Air Force PC-7 Team©.
On the occasion of the company’s 100th anniversary, Fortis introduced the Daybreaker – the world’s first and only automatic alarm chronograph GMT.
The oversized lunettes are the distinctive feature of these highly specialized instruments, as is the sapphire crystal face with antireflective coating on both sides and the SuperLuminova for eye-catching legibility even in the darkest waters.
