Fortis Limited Art Edition Andora Emotions Watch - Most Unusual Design

Oct 27, 2010
Early in December, the Swiss watchmaker Fortis surprises the audience with the issue of its offbeat watch, named Limited Art Edition Andora Emotions.

The functions, provided by the new chronograph, go far beyond showing time. The timepiece reminds the wearer of the life’s brevity, encouraging him to spend it more efficiently.

An amazing creation by peerless artist Andora, the new Fortis watch is instantly identifiable due to its dial, extremely complex in design. The background of the display is marked with the following inscription: “Tradition does not mean preserving the ashes, but pass on the fire” .

The dial exposes a flange with a 60-minute scale. It tells the time with partially transparent hour and minutes hands, performed in black. They are joined by a red-painted centre-stop-second hand.

The display also comprises a 30-minute and 12-hour chronograph counters, distinguished by a special art design. They are positioned at 12 and 6 o ‘clock respectively. The permanent small seconds are indicated in a rotating “globe” counter, nestled at 9 o’clock. The day and date indications are offered in an aperture at 3 o’clock.

The absolute precision of the Limited Art Edition Andora Emotions watch is guaranteed by a Swiss-made self-winding movement, artfully paved with 25 jewels. It is fitted with the Incabloc shock absorber system and oscillates at 28,800 vibrations per hour.

The entire mechanism is housed in a 3-part 42 mm case, rendered in titanium. The same material is used for a screw-down case-back, which bears a special art engraving. On the front side, the case reveals a sapphire crystal, treated with a double-sided anti-reflective coating.

The glass is held in place by a unidirectional turning bezel. Performed in red, green and yellow, it is marked with different human expressions. The timepiece is also equipped with a crown and pushers, protected by caoutchouc covers. The engraved limitation number is featured on the side of the case, at 9 o’clock. The timepiece is 200-meter water-resistant.

The new Fortis watch is accompanied by a titanium bracelet with a laser engraving. It is closed with a folding clasp.

The model is delivered in a specially designed red leather box, embossed with Fortis logo. It includes an instruction manual with a certificate of limitation as well as an international warranty card.

The most unusual in its exterior and complicated from the functional standpoint, this timekeeper will surely become a cherished possession for collectors.
