For the discerning watch collector, nothing is more interesting than automatic movements with unique complications. The Fortis automatic alarm chronograph is in a world of its own, featuring a patented fully mechanical alarm chronograph, a design initiated by Cosmonauts. This technological masterpiece requires 380 micro-mechanical parts that function perfectly together.
We are impressed by the intricacy of this creation-the special rotor and large hammer, visible through the glass caseback. We absolutely love the unique mechanical sound that the hammer generates when the alarm goes off.
