Monolith Reference: 647.18.31 No numbers – just indices. This creates space on the dial and therefore absolute clarity. A property that is very important for both – pilots and cosmonauts due to the necessary reaction times. Within the FORTIS Cosmonautis Collection, this watch is the expression of sleek elegance paired with one-hundred per cent reliability in time and space. Held in a PVD-coated steel housing, the Swiss automatic movement ETA 2836-2 performs its loyal duties every second. Price: R31'290
Expert opinion:

In cooperation with the green illuminating hands and indices, a small Super-Luminova dot on the unidirectional turning bezel also lets you know how much time has elapsed in complete darkness,. This is where Swiss-made quality proves its worth in any situation. With 20 bar water resistance and anti-reflective coating, the monolith will stand courageously by your side in any situation. Just like its big brother (FORTIS 638.18.31 Monolith Chronograph), this watch has a diameter of 42mm. To suit the case properties, the Monolith is available with either a black PVD-coated steel wristband or a sporty performance leather option.
