New BaselWorld 2018 Release
The Spacematic Series from Fortis ranks among our favorites - there's nothing like a bit of 60's and 70's "cool".
This watch is both retro and modern at the same time, and because of the large numerals and indices is extremely legible.
The Fortis Cosmonauts Spacematic watches with black dials are already among our best selling watches, and the new all luminous white dial creates a fresh look for a very familiar watch.
Fortis didn't officially name their Spacematic line until the 1970's, but its roots go back a decade further to the US Gemini Astronauts, who wore some of the first Spacematic watches on their missions.
The Spacematic collection relies on four core tenets: high functionality, excellent readability, robustness, and ease of use.
The Spacematic is housed in a satinized stainless steel, 40 millimeter case, with black accents on the dial. Numerals can be found at 12, 6, and 9.
The numeral at 3 has been omitted to make room for the dual language day/date display. Select either German or English days through the quickset crown and the watch will maintain that language.
Black minute and hour hands are distinctly defined against the luminous white dial. The entire dial is coated with SuperLuminova with a green night glow.
An orange seconds hand is impossible to miss as it provides high contrast to the dial.
Important features of this watch include:
- Clean layout for extreme legibility
- White dial coated with SuperLuminova green glow
- Day/date display at 3
- Change between English or German days
- Water resistant to 100 meters
This watch is fitted with a tan Fortis calf leather strap with tang buckle.
