Jewellery & Watch News

Still exploring space, sky and ocean, Fortis have pulled it out the bag this year and we are incredibly excited to give you the rundown of all the latest Fortis watch releases for 2020.

Founded by Walter Vogt more than 100 years ago, Fortis watches are designed to be the most reliable and precise timepieces in the industry.

These same principles remain alive within every new Fortis watch to this day alongside beautiful aesthetics, tough case designs and highly accurate Swiss made movements.
