About the Brand
Walter Vogt founded Fortis in Grenchen, Switzerland in 1912. This company rose to prominence in 1926 when it introduced the world's first automatic timepiece called the Harwood. This new self-winding movement revolutionized the watch market during a time when timepiece manufacturers were focusing on manual wind movements. Fortis has cemented its reputation as a manufacturer of tough and resilient timepieces. Their watches are favorites amongst divers, pilots, and cosmonauts. Fortis is the official wristwatch supplier of the Russian Space program.
