Product Details
Fortis Official Cosmonautis on Strap

Fortis made its first space flight in 1994.

The trip was to the Russian Space Station MIR, and the results were so positive that the decision was made to "launch" an Official Cosmonauts Collection. 

Fortis was chosen by ROSCOMOS, the official Russian Space Agency, because of their need for a mechanical watch with advanced development in materials technology, build quality and robustness required for space travel.

To commemorate this honor, Fortis engraves the official emblem of the Russian Space Agency on the case back of every Cosmonautis watch.  Also inscribed onto the case back is the insignia for the Yuri Gugarin Cosmonaut Training Center, where these watches are standard issue to this day.

The Fortis Official Cosmonauts is housed in a 42 mm case with a matte black dial and contrasting white numerals and indices.  The seconds hand is painted in orange for clear legibility.

As an added benefit, this watch also features a day/date display at the 3 position with the day display in either English or German (you change the settings through the crown).

Notice the two white triangles on either side of the day/date display.  These triangles are not decorative but actually indicate how to set the day and date.  Using the second crown position, turn the crown clockwise to set the date and counter-clockwise to set the day.

We're also impressed with the screwed case lugs, ensuring a secure fit at all times.

Important features of this watch include:
  • Double anti-reflective coating
  • Sapphire crystal
  • Day/date display at 3
  • Water resistant to 200 meters
  • Engraved case back

This watch is fitted with a Fortis black calf leather strap with white contrast stitching and Fortis steel tang buckle.

Verified Owner Comments: This is the second purchase I've made with Watchbuys and the service has always been great.

The Fortis so far has been very accurate and it seems to be very well made. I will definitely purchase from Watchbuys again.

Watchbuys is the BEST

"Watchbuys is the BEST"

Verified Owner Comments: Hello, I have attended a couple road shows from Watchbuys over the years in San Francisco and this company is a class act! They are knowledgeable and carry awesome brands.

The people behind this company are the real deal! It took a few years but I purchased the Fortis Official Cosmonauts and the watch is perfect. Delivery was fast and the watch is amazing. Thank you Waatchbuys for a wonderful experience buying remote and online!

Outstanding product

"Outstanding product"

Verified Owner Comments: F.O.C outstanding solid watch, looks similar to Sinn 104. I believe they use ETA 7750 Valjoux movement . Watch sits very well on my 6.75 inch wrist. It has lots of masculine presence so be ready to get noticed and complimented. Leather strap feels cheap so i replaced it with rubber strap. This watch def a keeper.

Fortis Cosmonauts

"Fortis Cosmonauts"

Verified Owner Comments: This was my first purchase from watchbuys and it was a great experience.

This watch presents a superb value for money. A strong and classy watch with a tried and true Swiss ETA movement from a watchmaker with history. I have owned my Fortis for 2 years and it has been flawless. I have worn it in all conditions, from the beach to dinners and even with a suit on a job interview. It never fails to get compliments and questions.

This watch would be a fantastic place for a new watch collector to start or an experienced collector to add a new and interesting piece. Buy with confidence.

Great Professional Watch!
