Harrison Ford Wears Fortis Watch in Ender's Game

The Fortis Official Cosmonauts Chronograph is worn by Harrison Ford in the new science fiction thriller 'Ender's Game'.

The film, which was released in the UK on 25th October 2013, is the story of a young boy who must save the human race from alien attack.

"When Earth is invaded by a race of aliens called the Formics, it is decided that the best hope for survival lies with child prodigies like Andrew 'Ender' Wiggin who have been trained from an early age in an elite battle school orbiting the Earth to command the Earth's international fleet in a desperate battle for survival," the brand explains. "It's Harrison Ford's job, in his role as Colonel Gaff, to train the young Andrew Wiggin to master a series of increasingly difficult war games and fulfil his destiny as a military leader who will be the supreme commander in a war that will determine the future of Earth and the human race."
 


Ford wears the Official Cosmonauts Chronograph, a watch that has been officially certified for manned space flight and that has been put through "some of the most rigorous endurance tests ever conducted". The timepiece was first worn in deep space by Dr. Ulf Merbold during the joint German/Russian Euromir space mission, and continues to be worn by International Space Station crew.

The Fortis Official Cosmonauts Chronograph is powered by the Swiss made Valjoux 7750 automatic calibre, with fine timing device and Incabloc shock absorber. It has a 38 mm brushed steel case, a turning bezel with tachymeter scale, and a screw down case back embossed with the emblems of the Russian space authorities. The sapphire crystal has anti-reflective coating on both sides, and a day/date indication is placed at 3 o'clock on the black dial. It is available now for £2,150.
