Fortis Classic Cosmonauts Chronograph Ceramic PM on Strap
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 PM features a 42 mm case with complete chronograph functions.

The dial is matte black (hence the PM in the name of this watch), with the hour and minutes hands trimmed in silver with applied green SuperLuminova and a silver 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 black calf leather strap with white stitching and tang buckle.

Beautiful Craftsmanship

Verified Owner Comments: This watch is so nicely made and exudes quality. it is a bargain for the price. The dial is gorgeous, especially the mint green lume and the orange chrono second hand. The ceramic bezel is sporty but the tachymeter scale is very subtle making the watch a little more dressy. I love the easy legibility and the day-date.

The watch is not slim (haven't seen a Valjoux 7750 that is) but wears well. I have some 3-handed divers that are thicker and chunkier. The accuracy has been excellent. My only complaints are 1) the running seconds hand at 9:00 can be hard to read. The metal hand sometimes catches the light but sometimes it disappears into the sub-dial, and 2) I don't love the collars on the chrono pushers. They are a classic look (i.e. Daytona) for sure, but just an extra thing to fiddle with when you want to start timing something.

Both of those are minor complaints on what is otherwise a great watch that I've been wearing every day with joy.
