Soon, Per Wimmer on board of the first Virgin Galactic Flight will be setting off on a once-in-a-lifetime journey and with him a very special timepiece – a watch made to be relied on, when every second counts.
He is a global financier, an entrepreneur, an adventurer, a pioneer, a philanthropist and he is an inspiration for many. Per’s enthusiasm, passion and endless thirst to try anything new paired with the kind of inner peace only a pro can bring to the equation were the inspiration for the Fortis Per Wimmer Special Edition Chronograph.
Based on the legendary Fortis Official Cosmonauts Collection, the special edition features «Wimmer-blue» stop watch hands and sub dials together with the Per Wimmer Logo. Per will take the only 10 existing watches with him into space which will be auctioned off upon his return to earth for a good cause. So, watch this space to find out when the auction takes place, and with a bit of luck, you can be one of the proud owners of a Special Edition Fortis Chronograph which actually will have spent some time in outer space!
Curious to know more about the man himself? Our film crew has spent a day with Per Wimmer, to produce a video for you to experience his persona up-close and personal. Watch the video here:
