Fortis has added new watches to its Spacematic collection. The new models are powered by the automatic ETA 2836-2 movement. The models come in brushed matte steel case measuring 40 mm, with a sapphire crystal and screw-down steel case back. Each of the new Spacematic watches is water resistant to 100 metres and is available with a choice of straps: silicone in black, white, grey or blue; a textile strap in black, olive or sand; a black leather strap; or a steel bracelet with folding clasp.
The first set of new models is the Fortis Spacematic White-Red and Spacematic Black-Red. They feature a modern dial design with day and date discs at the centre, aligning at 3 o’clock. The day indication is bilingual, with the days in both English and German. Hour markers and hands are coated in white Superluminova with a blue afterglow.
The second set of new models is the Fortis Spacematic Classic, available in black or white. The classic dial design features a bilingual day indication at 9 o’clock, and a date indication at 3 o’clock. Indices and the date indication triangle are in white Superluminova with a blue afterglow.
Personally I like the Fortis Spacematic White-Red with bracelet.
