Expert opinion: The brand-new 2016 FORTIS 401.21.11 Classic Cosmonauts Chronograph Steel p.m. allows you a glimpse into the tried-and-tested Swiss automatic movement ETA-7750 through a glass caseback. The completely new stainless steel housing represents the enormous robustness that has already distinguished FORTIS chronographs in space. 22 years later, more or less to the day, FORTIS is again letting pioneering spirit and courage inspire its design with this watch. The new 42mm bi-colour housing and the sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both sides play a significant role here. With its black dial and raised, green illuminating numbers, as well as the indices of the Steel p.m. model, the classic success model of 1994 has made a successful transition into the 21st century.
