19FORTIS a.m. Reference: 902.20.22 Walter Vogt once said, “Let us not manufacture anything less than the most reliable timepieces in the world – an extraordinary quality Swiss product that deserves the name FORTIS.” This motto is still the maxim at the heart of FORTIS’ work today, which is why FORTIS is again looking back to the pioneering innovations of its founder decades later. Today, the 902.22.13 19FORTIS is one of many models from the Terrestis Collection that harks back to this time. Price: R29'410
Taking the historical model as a template, we integrate the techniques and materials of the modern age to create a timeless companion with the 19FORTIS. In its 40mm polished stainless steel housing, the Swiss automatic movement ETA 2892-A2 pulses constant and steadfast. In order to make use of the unmistakable look of the 1940s, FORTIS has used rosé-gilded Roman numerals and indices on the dial. The hour and minute hands are also gilded, whilst the blued second hand creates and exciting contrast. The date display at 6 o’clock stands out clearly from the pleated silver-opal face. This masterpiece of perfect harmony is a welcome companion in any situation, not just for gentlemen but for the avant-garde women of today too.
