A pilot's watch in the Fortis Cosmonautis line? It's no mistake, the Stratoliner series is designed to handle the rigors of flights in Earth's stratosphere, 15-50 kilometers above sea level, thus their inclusion with the Fortis space watches.
Dating back to the early 1960's, the Stratoliner collection has been used by pilots during reconnaissance flights, oftentimes flying in altitudes of 20,000 meters and above.
The Fortis Cosmonauts Stratoliner Chronograph Ceramic AM features a 42 mm case with complete chronograph functions.
The dial is silver in color (hence the AM in the name) and is coated with beige SuperLuminova
. The hour, minutes and seconds hands are trimmed in black.
Accentuating the dial are applied numerals and indices. Screwed pushers drive the chronograph, which features a bright orange central chronograph hand and subdials at 12 and 6.
The matte black ceramic 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.
