Fortis special 50th anniversary Yuri Gagarin editon


12 April 2011

www.worldwatchweb.com - As the official supplier of the Russian Space program, Fortis has had the pleasure of creating a watch for the anniversary of one the most exciting events in the history of human space travel.



On April 12th 1961, the russian pilot Yuri Alexejewitsch Gagarin was the first human being in space.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of this history event, Fortis is launching a Limited Editon YURI GAGARIN GMT, which will be limited to only 300 pieces and will inlude the portrait of Yuri Gagarin on the case back.

Have no idea of cost. Foggy is right, dial is busy. But I like some of the company's other offerings

It's a watch for space geeks, for god's sake. I wouldn't expect it to have a ordinary three hand dial.

If that was snippy, I'm sorry. I'm feeling like shit today. Damn cold!

I was referring to all of the words on the dial.

I like it, but would rather commemorate US space exploration. I have been looking for a good deal on a Spacematic auto, but they don't show up on the sales forums very often. You can bet this one will be spendy.
