Since the beginning of the European-Russian space mission 1994, an extraordinary ceremony for the cosmonauts and astronauts takes place in orbit before their start. Because of its reliability, the crew receives the Fortis automatic chronograph as an official piece of equipment. The automatic chronograph movement wound up by the kinetic energy of the wearer ensures the independence of battery power - a mechanism that allows a precise measurement of time in emergency situations. The good quality of the chronographs is confirmed by the Russian Space Agency and the Training Center Star City with the embossing of their official emblems on the caseback.

The third watch generation of the Official Cosmonauts is made of titanium, and the control elements are covered with rubber. Thus, the requirements of the spaceman for the lowest possible weight and high functionality is taken into account. The most valued material properties of titanium include its high strength and anti-allergic quality.
