At Fortis, our core is defined by relentless innovation and the spirit of exploration. In a landmark collaboration with the Swedish Space Corporation in November 2022, we launched thirteen Stratoliner Supernova watches into the void of space, challenging the very boundaries of traditional watchmaking. These timepieces, having endured the extremes of outer space, stand as a testament to our adventurous ethos and our unwavering commitment to precision in any condition.
Last year, we offered these stellar ambassadors of our brand to watch and space enthusiasts through an exclusive application process. Our partnership with Fratello Watches, a platform that echoes our passion for distinctive timepieces, enabled us to extend one of these space-traveled treasures to their vibrant community. Among the sea of applicants, it was Khalid’s genuine passion for horology and his enthusiasm for the Fortis brand that distinguished him as the perfect custodian for one of these exceptional pieces.
Khalid’s story with us is a remarkable tale of affinity and exploration. His journey from the moment he first laid eyes on a Fortis watch to becoming an integral part of our latest chapter in space exploration is a vivid illustration of the enduring allure of our creations. The day Khalid visited our headquarters in Grenchen to meet Jupp and the team and collect his Stratoliner Supernova was a celebration of the shared values and boundary-pushing spirit that defines our community.
The Stratoliner Supernova is not just a watch; it’s a marvel of engineering, designed to withstand the rigors of space and embody the pinnacle of horological craftsmanship. Its journey beyond the Kármán line is a bold statement of our philosophy: Fortis. Tool Watch. Redefined. This piece is a symbol of our belief that true exploration knows no limits, and it serves as a beacon for future adventures in the vast unknown.
We invite you to delve deeper into Khalid’s cosmic journey and the extraordinary voyage of the Stratoliner Supernova watches. Discover more about the unique collaboration that made this possible and the unparalleled features that set these watches apart.
