Fortis has a nice line up of new additions this year. To start, the ever popular Spacematic line as a couple of new variations. The vintage inspired Spacematic Classic will be coming out later this year in 2 styles. The white dial variation (as pictured) and also a black dial version. The 40mm watch will have an ETA 2836-2 movement and a variety of strap options in leather, silicone, NATO and stainless steel.
Another addition to the Spacematic are the new Black-Red and White-Red. They both will have exposed day and date wheels with essentially the same specs as on the new Classics.
One of our personal favorites is going to be the new Marine Master Yellow. The chronograph will have a Valjoux 7750 movement and keep all the same details as the regular Marine Master. They look very stunning in person.
Along with the Chrono, there will also be a standard automatic utilizing an ETA 2836-2 movement.
The new elegant and easy to read Fortis Jumping Hour has a large viewing window to see the hour and centralized minute hand. The new limited edition has a circular embossed pattern in the dial giving it some extra detail.
Similar to the new solid dial jumping hour, there is also a new Jumping Hour Skeleton. The frosted translucent dial allows you to see the numerals, but only fully expose the current hour with a rotating dial.
These new pieces are scheduled to start coming in within the next few months. Stand by for some in depth reviews on all the great new Fortis products. Thanks for reading!
[…] of it over at azfinetime's blog. The yellow doesn't seem quite as bright. Seems more muted. https://azfinetime.wordpress.com/2013…releases-2013/ back to the top of […]
I’d go for the White-Red Spacematic, the Classic is too retro for me. The Marinemasters are really stunning and look great, though I don’t quite like those exaggerated protrusions on the bezel.
As for the movements, the post might contain wrong references. 2826-2 is the big date version (no day indication), and 3836-2 does not seem to exist.
Thank you for your comment. I actually had 2 typos on the movement, both the 2826-2 and 3836-2 were intended to be written as 2836-2 (day/date). My apologies for the mistake and I have corrected my error.
