It is in the nature of human beings to strive for perfection. Time and again, it is the case that genial inventors, pioneering spirits and progressive thinkers join forces in order to achieve something great together. One thing is always crucial: The experiences and achievements of others. Since it is only under these fundamental conditions that the future can be written out of history.
There should now be a groundbreaking, close alliance of this kind between FORTIS and DORNIER.
Not only do the stories begin at almost the same time, at the beginning of the 19th century, but the creative worlds are also closely connected. While FORTIS has specialised in timepieces for the four spheres (space, air, land, water), DORNIER has developed satellite technology, aircrafts, flying boats and many refined technologies without which our infra- structure would be very different today. Due to the many common points shared, today we are celebrating the alliance with the FORTIS- finished DORNIER GMT – a watch which unites all worlds, in colour and technology. The new Cosmonauts case stands for space, the hands and perfect readability stand for air, earth is symbolised by the two company logos and the blue GMT display on the bezel stands for water. The DORNIER GMT forms the basis upon which other innovative timepieces can be created. The 42mm watch includes dependable technology: fully bolted triggers, ETA movement 7754, special rotor coated in black PVD, a specially manufactured ceramic bezel with GMT digits and green Superluminova.
