The new Fortis Stratoliner series is designed to handle the rigors of flights in the earth's stratosphere, 15-50 kilometers above sea level, which is why this watch merits the title of a Cosmonautis.
Dating back to the early 1960's, the Stratoliner Collection has been used by pilots during reconnaissance flights at altitudes of 20,000 meters and above.
The Fortis Cosmonautis Stratoliner Steel Parabola Limited Edition was created to celebrate those brave enough to conduct parabolic, or weightless, flights in the name of science and technology.
Limited to just 200 pieces worldwide, this watch sports a unique design within the Fortis Collection.
The Stratoliner Steel Parabola Limited Edition features a 42 mm case with complete chronograph functions. The majority of the dial is fully-lumed in white, with the sub-dials and outer edge of the dial a matte black.
Accentuating the dial are applied numerals and indices, which are olive in color and are coated with SuperLuminova. Screwed pushers drive the chronograph, which features a central chronograph hand and subdials at 12 and 6.
The stainless steel bezel complements the case design and finish, providing balance to the watch as a whole. Integrated into the bezel is a tachymeter which can be used for speed calculations.

- Limited to 200 pieces
