About the Watch:

While some watch manufacturers talk about space travel, Fortis takes watchmaking for space travel to an all-new level with the Stratoliner S-41. A purpose-built tool watch, Fortis made the Stratoliner S-41 with modern space travel in mind
and tested the new WERK 17 movement in the Stratosphere with the Swedish Space Corporation. The details of this watch are outstanding and reflect Fortis' rich history in making some of the best tool watches ever made.

The History: Fortis is one of the few watchmakers in the world that remains, to this day an independent company with a rich history in Swiss watchmaking. Fortis was founded in 1912 by Walter Vogt. In 1926 Fortis, in collaboration with watch inventor, John Harwood, created the first automatic watch to be put into production, thus setting the stage for the likes of many major brands we see on the market today, such as Rolex, Omega, and more. Later, in 1940, Fortis pioneered the way for one of the first water-resistant watches ever built.

The Watch: The all-new WERK 17 movement is a self-winding single column-wheel Chronograph purpose-built for space travel and tested in the Stratosphere. The WERK 17 boasts an incredible 60-hour power. The 41mm case is composed of recycled stainless steel construction with an exhibition case back. The Stratoliner S-41 features 200m of water resistance and a sapphire crystal with dual anti-reflective coating. The Cosmic Gray dial features three sub-registers at the 12, 6, and 9 o'clock positions, with a date window at the 3 o'clock position.

The Details: This Fortis Stratoliner S-41 features the Cosmic Gray dial with Fortis leather Aviator Strap. Minimal wear is present on the case and case back, as visible in the photographs. This timepiece comes with the outer and inner boxes, warranty card, booklet, serial number stickers, and hang tag, as well as a Fortis polishing cloth and Fortis strap change tool.
