When A Big Watch Is Done Perfectly! - The Fortis B-42 Official Cosmonaut Chronograph Watch Review

Today I review an extremely cool Swiss made chronograph from the massively underappreciated but hugely important brand Fortis. This B-42 Automatic (Ref. 6381011M) not only is beautifully designed, robust and excellent quality, it also is the official choice of the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos). In this video I give an introduction to Fortis and it's most famous watch. Hard as nails and proven on many space missions, it is still standard issue for Cosmonauts to this day. Eat your heart out Omega Speedmaster, theres a new beast in town!
