About Fortis Watches
If you ever get the opportunity to go into space, Fortis watches are a good choice of timepiece. Astronauts have been wearing them in space since 1994, both inside and outside space stations and aircraft. They can withstand extreme conditions and temperature changes, and are still in use by cosmonauts of the Russian Federal Space Agency. Fortis is a Swiss brand of watches that is responsible for many firsts in the industry. For example, they released the first automatic watch in 1926. Today, there is a vast range of high-quality models, all of which are part of the large inventory on eBay. You can also get older models, including men's vintage Fortis watches. As well as the first automatic watches, you can also get some of the world's first chronograph and waterproof watches under the Fortis brand name. Current models include the Fortis Spacematic watch range. These are automatic watches with an elegant design and luminescent hands. Some Fortis watches also have a day and date display, which is in both English and German. Features like silicon straps are a hint to this brand's affinity with space.
