As a long-time admirer of Fortis’ aesthetic and design philosophy, I am thrilled to announce that Sekvens is the sole authorized Fortis dealer in Sweden.
Let’s kick off with five facts about Fortis:
- Manufactured the first automatic watch 1926.
- Working with Swedish Space Corporation to test watches in space.
- Their watches spent more time in space anyother brand (Sorry Omega 😛).
- Founded 1912, making it one of the oldest active Swiss brands
- A commitment to move the needle for quality & originality in the industry
I am espcially exited about the approach of the brand – the ambition to design and build icons of tomorrow, not just repeat old designs and live on success from the past. This quote really speaks to me:
Fortis manufactures pilot watches and that we will still do in 20 years regardless whether it’s trendy or notFilip Jupp, CEO Fortis
