The Gemini Astronauts' Choice & Most Underrated Under $1000 Pilot Watch - Fortis Spacematic Review

Chosen by the US astronauts themselves during training for the 1960s Gemini Space program, the Fortis Spacematic automatic has to be one of the most underappreciated watches designed for space. Today I take a look the latest 2017 update to the historic but rather forgotten line of watches called the "Stealth." This newer Spacematic has heavy flieger pilot watch design cues, a splash of its own retro 60s personality and yet it also has up to date modern materials and ruggedness. With the horologically important Fortis heritage behind it, modest dimensions, and affordable price tags, this is one amazing quality watch for the money.
