Fortis Yuri Gagarin Limited Edition Watch – Tribute to Legendary Cosmonaut

Apr 08, 2011
The house of Fortis is proud to introduce its new Yuri Gagarin Limited Edition watch. As the name of the model implies, it is dedicated to the legendary world’s first cosmonaut.

Offered in a limited series of 300 pieces, the new Fortis watch employs a 40mm two-part case. Rendered in steel, it boasts a sand-blasted matt surface.

At 3 o’clock the case features a screwed steel winding crown with a protection and the brand’s logo. The front side of the model is shielded by a high-grade sapphire crystal.

The screw-down steel case-back, meanwhile, is engraved with the portrait of Yuri Gagarin and Federal Space Agency Roscosmos inscription. The timepiece is built to be 200-meter water-resistant.

The new Fortis Yuri Gagarin Limited Edition watch comes equipped with a black matt dial. It reveals Arabic numerals and hands, inlaid with white Superluminova compound. The display ensures central hours and minutes. Moreover, it offers a centre-stop-second hand, dressed in orange.

The display also provides a 2nd time zone. It is read off from a white and orange central hand and a 24-hour scale, located at the outer ring of the dial. The date indication appears in the aperture at 3 o’clock. The limited edition print is found at 9 o’clock.

Animating the functions is a Swiss made automatic 2893-2 movement. Set with 25 jewels, it operates at a frequency of 28,800 semi-vibrations per hour.

The new Fortis watch is mounted on a black leather strap with contrast stitching. It is delivered in a leather box, embossed with the company’s logo. The model is accompanied by an instruction manual, international warranty card and a certificate of limitation.
