In the early 90s, when Swiss watch maker FORTIS made the first test series of their automatic chronographs to undergo a harsh qualifying before being selected as official cosmonauts’ equipment in 1994, the International Space Station (ISS) did not exist.
Today, 10 years after its first spacewalk onboard of the Russian orbital station MIR, a new FORTIS watch generation has its debut in space: The FORTIS B-42 Official Cosmonauts Chronograph. The crew members of the ISS Expedition No. 10 made a special performance in weightlessness, celebrating the 10th FORTIS IN SPACE jubilee with a photo shooting in one of the most exclusive locations, providing an insight into the world’s largest common construction in space, the International Space Station.
As Russia’s official watch supplier for space missions and onboard the ISS, FORTIS presents a limited edition of 500 automatic chronographs constructed of titanium:
The FORTIS B-42 OFFICIAL COSMONAUTS CHRONGORAPH
"International Space Station - Limited Edition".
The dial imprint around the 12-hour counter indicates the limited status of this exclusive edition; the minute counter is easily visible thanks to the circle of fundamental colors at the 12 position. The screw down titanium caseback is embossed with the FORTIS logo and the number of limitation as well as the authorizing national emblems of the Russian Federal Space Agency and the Cosmonauts Training Center, Star City.
This FORTIS Limited Edition – International Space Station - is presented on the occasion of the Basel World 2005 and at the same time to the members of space mission ISS 11 / Soyuz TMA-6, launching into space on the 15th of April 2005 from Baikonour to continue working on the assembly of the ISS.
