To celebrate its centenary, the Swiss brand has been producing limited edition art collections throughout 2012 with a predictable number of copies. Thus, last summer was marked by the release of the model Mattern, dedicated to the contemporary artist Michael Mattern, who paints in the style of Suprematism.
Fortis designers appreciated Michael’s love for colorful geometric shapes, movements and chips and tried to transfer all this beauty to the dial of his new watch.
The watch has a two-component steel case with a diameter of 40 mm and a thickness of 12 mm. The skeletonized dial changes its appearance slightly every second – all thanks to a blue-rotor self-winding movement. The outer ring of the dial, protected by a sapphire crystal with double-sided anti-reflective coating, displays the hour markers, while the inner ring shows the date of the month.
A model number is written on the screw-in back cover. Rubber bracelet on folding clasp and crown are decorated with engraved company logo. The watch is durable – it is equipped with an Incabloc shockproof system. In addition, they have high waterproofing up to 200 meters, i.e. they can be used for diving.
Of course, connoisseurs of abstract art will like this watch. They will be a bright accent in a strict everyday image or harmoniously complement a cheerful holiday look in the appropriate color scheme.
