Founder

Referenz: 902.20.32

It was at the peak of his creativity in the world of classical watches, in 1957, that FORTIS founder Walter Vogt died. In honour of this great pioneering spirit and his valuable legacy, FORTIS has harked back to a well-known model and is now bringing this to life under the name of FORTIS, in a limited edition of 222 pieces. As well as the classic Terrestis Collection characteristics, the original FORTIS DNA is also being incorporated here for the first time: at the end of each index, small Super-Luminova dots create the highlights of the masterpiece.

The 40mm polished stainless steel housing, perfectly finished sapphire glass, raised nickel indices, dots and Feuille hands, that are also Super-Luminova-coated, form a union of two worlds – pioneering work in the true sense of Walter Vogt. Through the glass back, sealed with 6 screws, FORTIS allows the proud owner to take a look at the Swiss automatic movement ETA 2892-A2. The FORTIS 902.20.32 Founder rounds off the Terrestis Collection spectrum and is at the same time a piece of the past and the future.
