Product Details

The legacy reborn.

A nod to our origins, featuring a matte ceramic bezel and a matte dial. The ultimate Successor of the famous Official Cosmonauts. After three decades of setting the gold standard in space with the iconic B-42 Official Cosmonauts, Fortis presents the Novonaut. This is not just a watch; it‘s an odyssey, a revolution, and a new chapter in space exploration.

The Novonaut is not here to merely measure moments; it‘s engineered to dominate the cosmos. Fueled by the space-approved Fortis Werk 17, packing a 60-hour power arsenal, this column-wheel chronograph is a relentless machine.

The Novonaut‘s Sirius Bezel sets a new standard. Made of ceramic, it‘s not just sleek – it‘s virtually unbreakable. SuperlumiNova® X1 adds unmatched brightness, making it the ideal companion for any challenge, day or night. Lumicast numerals round out this powerhouse, keeping you on course no matter where you are.
