FORTIS STRATOLINER

Swiss watch brand FORTIS presents Stratoliner, the first wristwatch specially designed for space travelers. It comes fitted with the brand’s first manufacture calibre which was custom built for space and tested in the Stratosphere.

FORTIS STRATOLINER

Stratoliner is a robust and reliable self-winding column wheel chronograph inspired by the space adventures. The new Fortis manufacture calibre, the WERK 17, is a self-winding chronograph movement with a column wheel for enhanced reliability.

The custom designed traversing bridge offers ultimate, space-proof robustness. It has been regulated to the Fortis performance requirements resulting in the highest accuracy for every environment. Furthermore, the new Stratoliner movement offers a power reserve of 60hrs.

FORTIS STRATOLINER watch movement

The Caliber WERK 17 was tested in collaboration with the Swedish Space Corporation. The test consisted of a number of movements fixed on a gondola driven by a stratospheric balloon. Launched at the Esrange Space Center, the test-batch took off into the Stratosphere. After a flight time of 1.5 hours under the harsh cosmic conditions, the movements came back down and landed.

Fortis Flieger F-43 Bicompax

Swiss watchmaker Fortis presents Flieger F-43 Bicompax, a brand new pilot watch inspired by one of the most iconic aviation watches. First created in 1987 the original Flieger embodies until today one of the cornerstones within the brand’s collection.

Fortis Flieger F-43 Bicompax

This pilot’s watch features a solid stainless steel case and incorporates a 12 hour bi-directional GMT bezel (24 Clicks), screw-down at 3h crown and chronograph pushers at 2h and 4h. Measuring 43mm diameter, the watch case boasts a brushed finishing on its surface.

Fortis Flieger F-43 Bicompax

Top glass is sapphire crystal with AR coating on both sides. Rear side of the watch is secured with a stainless steel case-back featuring inscriptions and an engraving of propeller. The chronograph pushers at 2h and 4h features anti-slip pattern.

Fortis Flieger F-43 Bicompax

The watch features a bi-compax dial inspired by the iconic Flieger watches. Featuring a finely grained base structure, the black opaline dial hosts two sub-cunters: small seconds at 9h and 30 minutes chronograph at 3h. Both counters feature white hands.

Fortis Flieger F-43 Bicompax

The dial also features a long Berlac Fluor Orange stop-second hand. The sword-shaped hour & minute hands are filled with green Superluminova® X1. The dial also features Berlac Fluor Orange border around the 30-minutes counter and date window for improving the clarity of the respective indications.

Fortis Flieger F-43 Bicompax

The bi-compax dial of the Fortis Flieger F-43 Bicompax chronograph incorporates two noteworthy innovations: SYNCHROLINE® and BRIXTRACK®. Whenever pilots unite to a formation it is essentially important that all of them are precisely aligned.

Fortis Flieger F-43 Bicompax SYNCHROLINE®

The SYNCHROLINE® in Berlac Fluor Orange on the dial ensures a calibration within a +/-5 second range. It helps the pilot to align his position with respect to his teammates. BRIXTRACK® is the circular brushed track that incorporates applied, illuminated bricks style hour markers for increasing readability especially in low light conditions.

FORTIS PC-7 TEAM AEROMASTER EDITION

To mark 30th anniversary of the Swiss Air Force aerobatic formation PC-7 TEAM, Swiss watch brand FORTIS has created a special edition watch collection: The collection is available in a chronograph and a three hand version.

Almost 15 years ago, FORTIS was selected as a partner of PC-7 TEAM and now has a very special edition up its sleeve for the 30th anniversary of the formation: The precise chronometers, limited to 300 pieces each, come with an elegant deep blue dial and applied numerals and indexes.

The aerobatic team and Swiss flagship PC-7 TEAM consists of 9 pilots and 3 other members, who under the leadership of Captain Cyril “Johnny” Johner put incredible precision work into the skies. With a distance of partly under 3 meters the most diverse maneuvers and formations are presented to the astonished public. The commitment of each team member is an additional task.

The pilots of the PC-7 TEAM fly full-time in one of the three F/A-18 squadrons of the Swiss Air Force in Payerne or Meiringen and fly about 110 hours a year on the Hornet. In this capacity, they contribute to the Air Force’s fulfilment of its mission. This includes maintaining air sovereignty and ensuring the air police service around the clock over Switzerland.

In order to get the best result, it is extremely important to survey the best for each field.
So the pilots of the PC-7 TEAM gave the essential input to the watches themselves. Topics like reading speed or precision were put in the foreground. Also the royal blue dial with the applied indexes and numerals reflects their wishes: Elegant but still a tool.

In addition to the pilots, various watch experts and enthusiasts were consulted in the same round, who brought improvements and detail finesse to the new Aeromaster with their cross-brand experience. Last but not least, FORTIS itself, under the new management, has of course incorporated some know-how and refinement into the two models and can therefore always surprise the wearer with product details.

The proven and extremely robust B-42 Aeromaster case is made of brushed stainless steel and offers exactly what is needed for the G-forces generated in aerobatics: protection. The fine brushing prevents possible sunlight reflections and thus contributes to quick readability – without losing the typical FORTIS tool elegance. As usual with FORTIS, the well-known double anti-reflective sapphire crystal with the special AR027 coating is of course used here.

Even if not so important for pilots, the company’s own “In-Crown Double-Gasket-System” made it possible to achieve a water resistance of 200 meters – without a screw-down crown, which would be counterproductive in flying.

The heart of the new PC-7 TEAM Aeromaster is the C.O.S.C. certified Swiss automatic chronometer movement, which offers the very best precision. The movement has undergone a special decoration and ticks well protected and invisible behind the case back specially embossed for this edition.

The grained base dial, grooved totalizers, a rehaut that precisely omits the indexes, numerals that are applied and filled with Superluminova® luminous material and, of course, the Pilatus PC-7 aircrafts in the famous diamond formation. The metallic frames of the hour and minute hands were formed to accommodate the indexes and numerals. A contrasting highlight is the central Swiss-red second hand. All these subtleties define the degree of passion that FORTIS has for its product, its partners and its wearers.

Whether the decision is made on the chronograph or the three-hand model – the watch is always delivered on stainless steel bracelet in a very special collector’s box with PC-7 TEAM patch, travel case, second dark blue Cordura performance strap and corresponding tools.

Wimmer Fortis Space Watch

Fortis Watches AG has announced its partnership collaboration with Wimmer Space on producing a “Per Wimmer” Fortis Space Watch.

Per Wimmer, philanthropist, global financier, author, adventurer and astronaut is expected to be the first private Dane in space as a founding astronaut on Sir R. Branson’s Virgin Galactic mission and will be flying to space on SpaceShipTwo wearing the Fortis watch next year. The Fortis Wimmer Watch is the ideal space tool giving Per Wimmer and his fellow astronauts all the metrics they need for making dreams reality on their mission to space.

Starting in 1912 founded by Water Vogt, Fortis has maintained a strong reputation in Swiss watch manufacturing. Their space story began in 1960 with the Spacematic models given to one of the Gemini-Crews.

The first Cosmonauts Fortis watch flew into space in 1994 with the Russian Roscosmos space program after being tested over and over in the Russian Space laboratories. Russian cosmonauts still wear it to this day as part of their official space equipment. A newer, more advanced model was realised in 2004, the B-42 Official Cosmonauts, breaking the record as the watch with the most hours not just in space but in outer-open space. It was worn on Extra-Vehicular Activity missions for more than 11 hours in outer space while performing repairs on the outside of the International Space Station.

This heavily space proven tool watch has inspired the ascent of many other space ventures such as the current Fortis Mars Amadee-18 watch project with the Austrian Space Forum. The next big Fortis space mission is this collaboration with astronaut Per Wimmer.

Per Wimmer, founder of Wimmer Space in 2000, Wimmer Financial in 2007 and Wimmer Family Office in 2011 as well as partner in Wimmer Horizon, is an experienced global financier. Prior to founding Wimmer Financial, Per Wimmer was an equity advisor at MF Global / Man Securities, formerly part of the USD 60bn asset manager, The MAN Group.

Per Wimmer also worked at Collins Stewart, now Canaccord, in a similar sales on trading capacity. From 1998 to 2002 he worked in New York and London for Goldman Sachs & Co. Per left the investment bank as Executive Director for Institutional Sales of European Equity products advising Scandinavian-based financial institutions.

Per holds a Master of Public Administration degree from Harvard University with concentrations in business, finance and international relations. Per also holds an M.A. from College of Europe, Belgium and a Master of Laws degree from the University of London as well as a B.A. and an M.A. degree in law from the University of Copenhagen.

Per Wimmer is expected to be the first private Dane in space, as a Founding Astronaut on Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic Space Ship Two. Having completed all of his space training, including flying Russian fighter jets, extensive centrifuge training (high G-training), weightlessness and zero gravity training, he is awaiting the completion of the rocket vehicle test programs after which he will launch into space.

The goals of Wimmer Space are to get Per Wimmer through extreme adventures, including space and, in the process, to inspire children to live out their dreams – whatever they may be and to encourage their interest in space and science.

Within Wimmer Space, adventure travelling has taken Per Wimmer to live with the Indians of the Amazon Forrest, skiing at the highest skiing facility in the world at 5,500 metres in Bolivia, snow scootering 200 km North of the Polar Circle in Lapland near Kiruna Sweden, free diving off the West Coast of Australia, flying water jet packs and helicopters. Per visited more than 80 countries, and on October 6, 2008, he wrote world history, together with Ralph Mitchell, by successfully completing the world’s first tandem sky dive over the highest point on Earth, Mount Everest.

In July 2019 Per will attempt a 3.8 km (12,500 ft) deep submarine dive into the Northern Atlantic Ocean to explore the infamous Titanic shipwreck. Per will be wearing the Wimmer Fortis Space Watch on this expedition reaching a whopping 400 atmospheres of pressure outside the sub. This will be Per’s second attempt to the world’s most famous shipwreck, after the Russian government put a halt to the 2011 mission just 7 weeks before the planned dive.

This time everything is set and ready to go as Per will embark the MV Havila Harmony, Dive Support Ship, from Newfoundland for a 9-day adventurous mission between July 13th – July 22nd 2019. Titan, Ocean Gate’s submersible, will take the divers on a 3-hour journey down 3.8 km (12,500 ft) deep all with the Fortis watch designed to withstand the most extreme of conditions.

Three dives will take place during the duration of the mission, each dive lasting approximately 9 hours; a three hour long descend, three hours of exploration of the area around the shipwreck and a three hour ascend back up. The sub is highly sophisticated with its titanium and filament wound carbon fibre, designed to withstand pressures of up to 400 atmospheres, making it the world’s only 5-person manned submersible capable of reaching 4,000 meters.

Currently less people have visited the Titanic shipwreck than space, as less than 200 people have performed the dive in comparison to just under 600 people having visited space. Per will be the first Dane to visit the shipwreck making a dream come true on his second attempt to the Ocean’s depth.

Introducing a new era of deep-sea exploration adventurers, researches and scientists will be able to observe our planet’s most valuable resources from an entirely new perspective. This mission has only been ever completed by a small number of people, and is a great opportunity to see the wreckage first hand.

Wimmer Family Office focuses on conservative wealth management including bespoke investment portfolio solutions and core investment trend-following strategy through the Wimmer ETF Plus Fund.

Wimmer Financial is an international corporate investment bank with a global reach through a network of partners and global corporates. Wimmer Financial provides, among other things, large corporate credit lines from $ 50 M for global project finance, renewable energy, oil and gas, mining, real estate development, infrastructure, aviation, shipping as well as corporate acquisition debt finance and other hard asset financing.

Wimmer Horizon LLP, a London-based CTA Fund Manager, which is an award-winning established systematic fund manager with a 20+ year track record of successfully managing large portfolios for large institutional clients. The Wimmer Horizon proposition uses scientific, engineering and behavioural disciplines to capture market behaviour and delivered a robust and skewed risk/return profile.

The program utilises proprietary techniques based on Digital Signalling Processing (DSP) approach and a unique Pattern Recognition (PR) methodology. Fundamental to this approach is cutting-edge research and innovative model development reinforced by an institutional class infrastructure.

The Wimmer Fortis Space watch will be the first of many collaborative efforts between Wimmer Space and Fortis as they both take pride in adventure and exploration. The watch will be worn on both the dark wonders of the cold Atlantic floor bed and the inhumane conditions of life beyond the Karman Line as Per continues to set records alongside Fortis’ pioneering support.

FORTIS B-47 WORLD TIMER GMT Limited Edition

Swiss watch brand FORTIS presents a perfect world traveler watch on the occasion of its 100th anniversary. The B-47 WORLD TIMER GMT with its specially engineered FORTIS caliber F-2022 is capable to monitor three different time zones simultaneously. Equipped with an automatic movement this practical world timer is independent from batteries, as the wearer generates the energy by the movements of his wrist.

Three time zones can be monitored at once. The first by using the center hands, the second by a rotating blue dial disc showing the continents. The earth seen from space is turning counter-clockwise, just like the authentic rotation of the earth. The red line represents the zero meridian in Greenwich/ England and indicates as a rotating disc hand the second time zone on the inner 24 hour scale. The current time of every time zone can be seen at a single glance. The 24 city names engraved on the bidirectional turning bezel represent the 24 different world time zones. The 3rd time is indicated by setting the bezel on “home” time.
To commemorate the centennial this edition is coming in silver and black design, each limited to 2012 pieces. Both models appeal through their precise and well thought design. The eye catcher is of course the center dial part representing the Earth as seen from the North Pole, with all 24 time zones indicated. Like the earth itself, the globe is turning anti-clockwise and applies to the 24 hour scale next to it.

FORTIS MARINEMASTER VINTAGE LIMITED EDITION

Mechanical FORTIS watches branded with the name “Marinemaster” were first distributed at the beginning of the 1940s. Thenceforth the Marinemaster was one of the most popular watches from FORTIS.

Instead of updating the design of the watch, the Marinemaster always reflected the contemporary design and therefore the watch always looked different.

As a tribute to this collection and especially on the occasion of the centennial of FORTIS, the Marinemaster from the 70s is re-editioned. The position of the subcounters with the permanent small second at position 3 o’clock and the chronograph function hands at position 6 and 9 o’clock as well as the typical blue or orange design provide the retro look.

By the use of a special chronograph module, the MARINEMASTER VINTAGE combines classic and at the same time fresh design from the past with the experienced technical expertise from today.

Remarkable design and a state-of-the-art in technology guarantee the unmistakable character of both edition models, coming in a limited edition of 500 pieces per execution celebrating the company’s‘ 100th anniversary.

  • Steel highly polished and brushed Ø 40 mm

FORTIS – B-42 BLACK MARS 500 Day/Date Limited Edition & B-42 BLACK MARS 500 Chronograph Limited Edition

More than forty years ago millions of people worldwide have followed the moon landing. Today, the specialists from different nations are aiming to fly to Mars. When in the year 2035 the first human space mission will take-off to the red planet the stage was set by the ambitious research projects of today.

Between 2010 and 2011, the European space agency ESA and the Russian space agency ROSCOSMOS systematically prepared a project in an artificial habitat constructed in dimensions of a real spaceship for a period of 520 days in isolation. Storage rooms, green house, lab area and even an exploration platform to simulate the exit to Mars’ surface are part of the technical equipment. After the successful performance of the test mission of 105 days in 2009, the real-time 520 day mission started on June 3rd, 2010 in the Mission Control Center. Six candidates from 4 different countries (Russia, Italy, China and France) were participated in this mission that was successfully concluded on November 4, 2011.

In this project, mechanical timepieces of Swiss manufacturer FORTIS were used by crew as timing equipment as their official MARS 500 mission watches. Being the official supplier to manned space missions since the beginning of the 1990’s FORTIS automatic watches have proven their reliability during countless missions in weightlessness. Since the hatchway has closed for 520 days the FORTIS timepieces accompanied the crew of the MARS 500 flight simulation mission on their wrists for the challenge lasting almost two years.

To commemorate this milestone in Mars exploration FORTIS launched two special edition timepieces: the FORTIS B-42 BLACK MARS 500 & the FORTIS B-42 BLACK MARS 500 Chronograph.

FORTIS B-42 BLACK MARS 500 Day/Date

The new B-47 BIG BLACK & BIG STEEL models are the perfect examples of creativity and high professionalism displayed by Swiss watch brand FORTIS. These watches are powered with the Swiss Automatic movement 2836-2, modified by FORTIS.

The current Day and Date are not only displayed in the new “Big Day/Date” format, but also the Day/Date disk shimmers throughout the whole matt black/transparent glass dial. The distinctive big indices are coated with black luminous material and the sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both sides guarantees best legibility even in difficult lighting conditions.

Another novelty that comes with these models is the bezel: The wavelike jagged bezel with 60-minute scale is unidirectional adjustable and featured with a semicircular rubber inlay, which especially protects the case as well as the glass when accidentally hitting the watch.
Two case types are available: On the one hand the classic brushed steel case, on the other hand the completely “Black Monster” in a steel/ PVD black case. Both models are limited to 2012 pieces each and hence represent another highlight in the collection of the FORTIS 100th anniversary jubilee models.

FORTIS B-42 STRATOLINER CHRONOGRAPH: B-42 Stratoliner Chronograph Black (Ref. 665.10.121) & B-42 Stratoliner Chronograph White (Ref. 665.10.12)

One of the most reliable vintage FORTIS chronometers was branded Stratoliner and had its premiere at the beginning of the space age in the early 60‘s on the occasion of the company‘s 50th anniversary. In 2009, FORTIS launched two new models: B-42 Stratoliner Chronograph Black (Ref. 665.10.121) & B-42 Stratoliner Chronograph White (Ref. 665.10.12)

In the B-42 STRATOLINER model, the contrast dial with its sub counters harmoniously accompanies the three-part steel case which is finished partly brushed and polished. The inner values are based on the perfect Swiss Valjoux chronograph movement with fine timing device and Incabloc shock absorber.

 

The double coated sapphire crystal and the screw-down see through caseback allow best visibility and together with the pusher protection these features guarantee for a 200 meters water resistance (20 bar). Available with steel bracelet, extra padded black leather or rubber strap with folding clasp.

FORTIS B-47 CALCULATOR GMT 3 TIME ZONES

Diameter 47 mm. Developed following the pilots’ specifications to fulfil the requests of all typical flight parameters. Comfortable and highly exact Swiss micro mechanics in symbiosis with the classical slide rule function. An uncomplicated service of this modern classic permits the exemplarily good legibility. 3 time zones, countdown function, country specific conversion scales. Case back with temperature scale C° and Fahrenheit and watch-identity number.

The FORTIS CALCULATOR is not just a watch but also an instrument for simple calculations used in the same manner as slide rules were before electronic calculators became popular. A second, separate time-zone is available which can also be used as a 24 hour indicator. The bezel is intended for the countdown function and the setting of a third timezone. The CALCULATOR can assist as a professional navigating instrument if the electronic systems on board an aircraft should fail.

A Swiss watchmaker was the first to find out by thought about the relation of numbers and the way to control them in the system of the logarithms. Jost Bürgi, born in 1552 in the Swiss canton St. Gallen, conceived the base of the arithmetic system which was a must and the basic tool for every engineer or architect and many other technical occupations until 1969: The slide rule, squeezed out by the battery-operated pocket calculator of the 70s, at the same time, when the quartz watch took over from the mechanical watches.

FORTIS B-42 FLIEGER BLACK COLLECTION : Chronograph Alarm C.O.S.C ,Chronograph & Day Date Models

The adventures of the 21st century are based on the progress that has been made in technology and the ideas, that will extend the frontiers of humanity from land to air to the last final step, outer space. The established Swiss brand FORTIS, well versed in the history of aeronautics and space travel, uses its knowledge for developing precise chronographs for pilots, cosmonauts and astronauts. As the supplier of numerous professional flight squadrons and as the manufacturer of the official watches of the Russian space program, FORTIS keeps constantly in touch with pilots and space travellers. This strong contact allows FORTIS to constantly test the watches in the most extreme conditions, and has enriched the creative work of the company as well as gaining experience and knowledge that can be incorporated into new timepieces.

The functionally designed, PVD black coated steel watchcase topped by a double coated sapphire crystal, has a diameter of 42-millimeters whereas the matt black dial and the contrasting white dial design finely characterize the B-42 FLIEGER BLACK collection.

The glass case back allows inside view into the mechanics of the automatic movements and the C.O.S.C. tested FORTIS chronograph alarm calibre F2001-5 reveals the fascination of a unique micro mechanical masterpiece, one of a kind.

The side view of the B-42 collection shows its characteristic elements: screwed attachment lugs, protected push buttons, and a proportionally sized and easily accessible crown embossed with the FORTIS crown logo. All models are available with a sporty strap made of high-quality rubber with folding clasp, with a padded black leather strap with contrast stitching or with an elegant Louisiana crocodile leather strap, whereas both of them can be featured with an alternate butterfly folding clasp instead of the standard buckle.
