Product Details

Fortis is of course closely associated with the Russian Space Agency through their Official Cosmonautis Series.

The Fortis Classic Cosmonautis watches differ from the Fortis Official Cosmonautis watches in several important ways.

First, the case finish consists of polished, satinized and brushed elements to create a fresh look.  Next, instead of the traditional solid case back Fortis has used a transparent case back to view the movement.

And finally, Fortis has designed a ceramic bezel that is truly the standout feature of this new watch.

The Fortis Classic Cosmonauts Chronograph Ceramic AM on bracelet features a 42 mm case with complete chronograph functions.

The dial is silver (hence the AM in the name), with the hour and minutes hands trimmed in black with applied green SuperLuminova and an orange seconds hand.

Accentuating the dial are applied numerals and indices, also coated with SuperLuminova.  Screwed pushers drive the chronograph, which features a central chronograph hand and subdials at 12 and 6, all with bright orange hands for easy identification.

The matte black ceramic bezel perfectly 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.

Important features of this watch include:

  • Black ceramic bezel
  • Double coated AR sapphire crystal
  • Transparent case back
  • Crown guard
  • Day/date display
  • Water resistant to 100 meters

This watch is fitted with a Fortis stainless steel bracelet with locking clasp.

Fortis Cosmonaut

"Fortis Cosmonaut"

Verified Owner Comments: Love the color, feel, ceramic bezel. The loom is great, picks it off right from the sun. I don't have a time grapher but seems to be very accurate, no notice of major time loss. Makes a nice pair with my Omega Moonwatch, honoring those who risk and gave their lives for exploration of space.

Awesome watch from Fortis

"Awesome watch from Fortis"

Verified Owner Comments:

The Fortis Classic Cosmonauts Chronograph Ceramic AM is a great watch at a reasonable price.

The white dial is amazing in it's detail, I often find my self distracted by it throughout the day! The finishing of the case, bezel, bracelet is also what it should be for a watch at this price point. I would have preferred the bracelet/case to be entirely brushed instead of partly brushed/partly polished, but I knew that when before hand. If there's anything to complain about, it's the case back. The bulging shape of it makes the watch less comfortable than it should be. Perhaps it's just my wrist, but it adds pressure to my wrist that occasionally causes me to readjust it's position. A small annoyance.
