FORTIS-FIRST-AUTOMATIC.jpg (77682 bytes)

The first factory producing aHarwood Bumper automatic wristwatch.

The 1826 Harwood was the World's first production automatic movement.

The 25th anniversary of Fortis, 1937, they manufactured their first chronograph

In 1954 Fortis took over the world-wide distribution of alarm watches.

fortis-homed.jpg (24745 bytes)

FORTIS was founded in 1912 and has continued to the present day.

In fact, by the middle 50s to 60s, FORTIS   received a  reputation for great automatic wristwatches and by the 1980s, when brands were closing left and right, and those surviving had to adopt the quartz mobement and ditch the mechanical movement, Fortis continued to manufacture mechanical movement time pieces.

From the  FORTIS OFFICIAL COSMONAUTS CHRONOGRAPH to the FORTIS Official Cosmonauts Chronograph Automatic Alarm, FORTIS earned the approval of the professional world.

UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE all watches offered by GSW have been SERVICED. Some required REPAIR AND RESTORATION! Normal Servicing of Mechanical Watches by an EXPERT PROFESSIONAL will run between $180.00 to 580.00, depending on the complication of the movement and that is WITHOUT parts that may be required. SERVICING means DISASSEMBLING THE ENTIRE WATCH AND MOVEMENT, CLEANING SAME, OILING, LUBING AND REASSEMBLING, timing and Sealing. RESTORATION is a separate service from SERVICING and may include CRYSTAL, DIAL, HANDS, CASE, LUGS and BAND. So, WHEN YOU VIEW VINTAGE AND CLASSIC WATCHES OFFERED BY OTHER VENDORS/DEALERS, the question is: WAS THE WATCH SERVICED?
