Fortis Cosmonauts Spacematic Stealth on Strap
Product Details

Fortis didn't officially name the 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 Fortis Spacematic Stealth is housed in a matte black PVD 40 millimeter case, with white 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 - which can be quick-set through the crown.

White minute and hour hands are distinctly defined against the black dial. The hands (as well as numerals and indices) are all coated with SuperLuminova with a green night flow.

An orange seconds hand is impossible to miss with high contrast to the dial.

Important features of this watch include:

  • Black PVD case
  • Green SuperLuminova
  • Day/date display at 3
  • Water resistant to 100 meters

This watch is fitted with a black Fortis Performance strap.

Fortis Cosmonauts

"Fortis Cosmonauts"

Verified Owner Comments: Crisp ultra-legible dial, seamless day-date integration, perfect 40mm size, this is a pvd watch with style and class. The piece has a really nice heft to it and feels solid and robust. Mine is running about +2s per day out of the box. It is unique yet minimal, like a future 90s retro field watch. My only complaint is the strap is too long. My wrist is ~7 inches and I'm on the 2nd to last hole in the strap. If it were 6.5 I'd probably have to punch another hole to get it to fit.

Overall very pleased. This one is a keeper.

Clear and Legible

"Clear and Legible"

Verified Owner Comments: Easy to read, yet unique. After a few months has settled down to +5s/day. Could not use the strap, too long. Wears great on an MN Black Ops strap.

Very happy with the watch & WatchBuys.

Great watch. Super legible. Included strap is awful.

"Great watch. Super legible. Included strap is awful."

Verified Owner Comments: The Spacematic Stealth looks good on the wrist, keeps accurate time and is super legible. Mine isn't quite COSC-accurate, but it's close. What I like most about this watch is the legibility. It's really easy to read at a glance. The lume is great too and looks awesome at night. I love the quick day/date adjustment. My only complaint is the band. It's simply terrible. It's really fat in the middle with some kind of padding inside, which makes it very difficult to put on and remove. I replaced it with the bespoke white silicone strap that comes on the 2018 version, directly from Fortis. I also tried it with the blacked-out Fortis NATO strap, again directly from Fortis in Switzerland (WatchBuys did not have either strap). I did a ton of research on this watch before buying it, and it seems to be quite rare compared to many of their other models. Maybe other people don't appreciate the minimalist design, but I absolutely love it. I'll be keeping this one for sure. Dealing with Watchbuys ... - more details

Great Watch!

"Great Watch!"

Verified Owner Comments: Watch arrived quickly and in perfect condition. Order process was smooth and staff were friendly. Watch is keeping very good time (gained 1 minute in about nine days). Had a person ask about the watch who turned out to be a watch collector, which has never happened before-even with my vintage Rolex! Great watch, easy to ready and keeps great time!
