Desirable lemania 5100 movement used in many military watches. Fortis produced these watches to be issued for the EROMIR European-Russian space mission as official equipment. Make you own history and memories with this very cool space watch.

Fortis Official Cosmonauts - 602.22.142 in very good condition. I purchased this little treasure from the original owner. Comes with the full kit, papers, and service records. Watch is also listed on TimeZone and WatchUSeek websites

Please review pictures for physical condition of the watch. A few small scuff marks here and there and a small nick on the side of the lower lug as seen in photos.

Everything mechanical works as it should. Chronograph counters all reset, keeps good time, crown and pushers screw up and down with no issues, and date changes at midnight. It was cleaned and serviced in 2019, gaskets replaced, bead blasted case and bracelet refinished, and then earlier this year had the crown replaced and pressure tested.

Comes with


Original bracelet with space suit extension

Official Velcro strap

Burgeon bracelet changing tool

Leather strap

Signed parts case with spare links and spring bars

Black nato strap

Original instructions manual


Original test report

Certification in Russian

Booklet on Yuri Gagarin and the space mission

Leather zippered case (outside of which is showing some minor deterioration)

Please contact me if you have any questions.

A great alternative to Omega Speedmaster with its unique space heritage and uncanny resemblance (bezel, chrono pushers, bracelet style) to the Rolex Daytona at a fraction. Don't miss out on this watch that has a cult following amongst collectors.
